FIRST ALERT: Rain could impact your outdoor plans this weekend

ARKLATEX (KSLA) - With our rain chances increasing this weekend, now is the time to think of a backup plan if your plans take you outside.

This weekend is not going to be a washout. It's not going to be raining everywhere all day Saturday or Sunday. However, numerous showers and storms will develop during the afternoon hours.

Highs on Saturday and Sunday will be near or just above 90 degrees. Max heat index values will be near or just above 100 degrees. Keep in mind, places that see more rain and clouds will not be as hot.

Over the weekend, a weak cold front will stall out across the area. Showers and storms will develop along and south of the front this weekend and maybe even early next week. With the best rain chances being along and south of the front, the I-20 corridor and points will likely have the best rain chances this weekend.

Severe storms are not expected at this time. However, the stronger storms that develop this weekend will be capable of producing strong wind gusts, heavy rain and frequent lightning.

The latest run of FutureTrack shows the heaviest rain will likely fall along and south of the I-20 corridor. FutureTrack shows widespread rainfall totals between 0.5" to 1.5" this weekend. Rainfall totals across the I-30 corridor are not as high. FutureTrack shows some places across the north won't even see a 0.1" of rain.
