Heavy rain and storms expected through Wednesday
Heavy rainfall expected this evening and tonight

(KSLA) - Heavy rain and storms will be likely for the next couple days. There could be some flooding in a few areas too. We could see around 4 inches of rain by Wednesday night. A flash flood watch is in effect through Wednesday evening.

Tonight, we may take a brief break from the rain. There will be some light showers scattered around, but I do not expect much heavy rain. This will help lower the water levels after all the rain from today. It will remain cloudy with temperatures falling to the lower 50s tonight.

Tuesday will have the rain chances go right back up. There may not be as many heavy downpours or storms as we saw on Monday but you’ll still want to keep the rain gear with you. You’re going to need it at times! You’ll need the jackets too. Temperatures are expected to hold steady or perhaps even fall slightly in the upper 40s to low 50s.

Wednesday is when another storm system will arrive from the west. This will, as you probably guessed, bring more rain. There should be a line of showers and storms along this next cold front. More heavy rain and storms are likely, but will be winding down by the evening and overnight hours. I have those rain chances up to 90%. A few strong storms are also possible mainly across the eastern ArkLaTex.

Finally to some good news! Thursday should not have any rain! This goes for Friday as well! That last cold front will push in and kick all the rain away from us! Therefore, we may even get some sunshine Thursday and Friday! What makes it better is that Friday is Valentine’s Day, and with no rain in the forecast, that should help out with any date night plans. Temperatures both days will be a little chilly though. It will only warm up to the lower to mid 50s.

This weekend will not be terrible. The clouds will be back on the increase with a few showers possible. Sunday has a better chance for rain, although it’s still not significantly high. At least temperatures will be warmer though! Saturday will warm up to the mid 50s, then Sunday it will warm up to the upper 60s. I would not cancel any plans due to the rain just yet though. At the very least, just have an indoor plan alternative.

Have a great week and stay dry!
