Good Tuesday morning! It’s a mild start with temps only in the upper 60’s-lower 70’s with cloudy skies this morning. Winds are breezy from the south as wind advisories are in effect. We’re tracking the threat for some strong to severe storms later this evening across the ArkLaMiss. All of northeast Louisiana is under a *slight* risk, while a small portion of southeast Arkansas has been upgraded to an *enhanced* risk.
A squall line will develop along a passing cold front and begin to push into our coverage area later ~5-6pm. These storms will push east through our region during sunset lasting into the early overnight hours, likely clearing out around or just past midnight. Primary threats will be damaging winds, large hail, and also a few possible tornadoes. The good news is that flash flooding will NOT be a big concern for tonight, as rainfall totals will likely end up between 0.5″-1.5″ by the time we clear out.
Overnight the winds will shift from the north as cool air fills in. Lows will drop down into the mid 40’s overnight with clearing skies.
Tomorrow is looking gorgeous, highs will only be in the lower 60’s with sunny skies and breezy winds. There will be no more rain in the forecast until Friday, so we will have a chance to enjoy some cool and clear weather for a few days!
