First Alert: Rain and a few storms to start the work week

(KSLA) — It’s going to be a sloppy start to the work week for many this morning.

Rain with a few embedded rumbles of thunder are pushing through the ArkLaTex this morning. The best chance of rain will be along the I-30 corridor this morning. Strong to severe storms are not expected this morning.

However, heavy rain and wet roads could slow you down. There is also the potential for areas of fog to develop.

With a front in the area, temperatures range from near 40 degrees north of I-30 to near 60 degrees south of I-20.

Most of the area will get a break from the rain late this morning through the early afternoon. Expect the clouds to linger, though. Overall, today is going to be a cloudy day.

Highs will range from the upper 50s north of I-30 to the low 70s south of I-20. More showers and storms will develop late today through tonight as a cold front drops south across the area.

Even though it’s unlikely, a stronger storm capable of gusty winds will be possible. Lows tonight will range from the upper 30s north of I-30 to the low 50s south of I-30.

Also, expect the wind to pick up out of the north as the front passes. Gusty north winds between 10-20 mph will be possible.

The rain will be gone by Tuesday morning. Tuesday morning will be windy.

Tuesday will be a cooler day for most. Highs will only be in the mid to upper 50s. A few places could hit 60 degrees.

Despite the cooler temperatures, Tuesday will be a sunnier day.

The middle of the work week will be dry and mild. Highs on Wednesday will be in the mid 60s. Wednesday should feature a ton of sunshine.
