SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Good afternoon ArkLaTex. Happy first day of Meteorological summer and today also marks the official start of the Hurricane season that goes until November 30th!
As we go throughout the week we will watch our temperatures continue to move up across the ArkLaTex with highs likely around the 90 degree mark on Tuesday. Heading towards the end of the work week and into the weekend, temperatures will hang around the low to mid 90s, but “feels-like” temperatures will run in the mid 90s to low 100s. Whew! Summer time heat is winding up for sure!
As far as rain chances, we have around a 20% chance for rain on Tuesday and 30% for Wednesday. These showers will be more so hit or miss where not everyone will see rainfall activity. Shower and storm chances for Tuesday will be coming from out of the south and moving northward more likely during the afternoon. Overall, dry weather continues for much of the ArkLaTex.
As we head into the weekend, expect the scorching conditions to continue with little chances across the ArkLaTex. Highs both Saturday and Sunday should be in the mid 90s.
TROPICS UPDATE: Tropical Depression Three has formed in the southern Gulf. It’s expected to reach Tropical Storm status within the next day or two and hang in the southern gulf for much of the work week. By the weekend, it’ll move north, but track from there is too early to nail down. Keep checking back with the First Alert team for more updates as we’ll have the latest on web, app, and social media. For now, go over any Hurricane Season preparedness plans and enjoy the dry weather this week.
So get ready for a hot weather pattern coming to the ArkLaTex along the chance of more early tropical development. Have a great week!
