Chilly but dry start to the week

Mostly clear skies expected for the overnight hours will allow temperatures to drop quickly. Low in Shreveport is 33F. Some areas could be at the freezing point or below. Some of you may wake up to frost on your windshield, so put a few extra minutes in your routine. Due to a layer of moisture trapped near the surface, clear conditions, and calm winds overnight, areas of patchy fog are possible overnight

Keep in mind, those chilly temperatures overnight will be what you are waking up to tomorrow. Grab the heavier coat along with the hat and gloves out the door. Be sure to bundle up the kids at the bus stop. Mostly sunny skies will dominate the forecast to start the week. Highs only in the low 50s.

Mid 50s for Tuesday with continuing dry weather. Lower 60s make a return for Wednesday, but clouds will also return.

Our next weather maker and next chance of seeing rain could be by the end of this week. A few showers possible for Thursday, otherwise cloudy skies. Highs will bump into the upper 60s. This is the same story for Friday. Highs stay in the upper 60s, some may even reach 70 degrees.

The frontal system will drop down into the ArkLaTex Saturday, which will increase rain chances and looks like to be the biggest chance for rain this upcoming week. Temperatures drop into the low 50s Saturday. Right now, rain looks to stay scattered, but that could change as we get closer to the event.

It looks like once that frontal system passes through, a large mass of cold air will move into the area. Lows between Saturday and Sunday with drop into the upper 20s here in Shreveport, which mean seven colder temperatures are possible to the north. Highs on Sunday will drop again, only reaching the low 40s with partly cloudy skies.

Have a great night!
