SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Good Wednesday morning! After watching thunderstorms roll through the ArkLaTex late Tuesday we are tracking more potential showers and storms as we go from the late morning hours through the afternoon hours Wednesday. This is due a slow moving upper level low over the ArkLaTex. We are tracking more potential showers and storms across the region on Thursday before we dry out heading into the weekend. Temperatures will begin to rebound as we head into the weekend and especially as we go into next week with 90s likely on the horizon after seeing 70s for most of this week.
