First Alert: Warm weekend followed by cool down next week
Cold front on the way next week

(KSLA) - Brighter skies are set to return to the ArkLaTex just in time for the weekend. We’ll also warm back up into the 80s. A fall cold front next week though will bring some rain by Monday followed by cooler weather for the rest of next week.

Clouds will hang tight tonight with some fog in a few spots. Temperatures will cool back into the low 60s. We’ll start tomorrow with clouds, but expect sunshine for most of the ArkLaTex by afternoon. Temperatures will begin warming back up into the upper 70s to low 80s.

The weekend looks warm and dry. We’ll see sunshine and temperatures near average for this time of year. Highs will be in the mid 80s with morning lows in the 60s.

The first of 2 cold fronts next week arrives on Monday. Rain chances are showing signs of increasing so expect to see some wet weather and a few storms as we start the week. Temperatures will reach the upper 70s to low 80s ahead of the front on Monday. Dry weather and clearing skies are expected Tuesday. Temperatures and humidity will begin falling with highs in the mid 70s and lows Tuesday night getting into the 50s.

A reinforcing shot of cooler air arrives Wednesday, but likely won’t bring any rain. We’ll stay sunny and dry for the second of the week with pleasant afternoon in the 70s and cool mornings in the 50s.

Have a great rest of the week!
