SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Good Monday morning! People all across the ArkLaTex are digging out from a few inches of snow that fell during the evening and overnight hours Sunday in Monday morning. The snow has come to an end across the area. While it will be cold Monday with highs barely making it into the 40s we are expecting 60s to return to the ArkLaTex by Thursday before another cold front arrives as we hit the weekend.
The heaviest snow totals have been across the southern half of the viewing area with some spots picking up nearly 6 inches of snow. In Shreveport we’ve seen roughly two to three inches of snow and the snow cover will keep temperatures cold Monday. As the snow and eventually clouds clear out don’t expect your temperatures to move much today. High temperatures this afternoon will only reach into the low 40s.
Temperatures Monday night will plummet into the 20s across the area. It could be as cold as the low 20s where we still have snow on the ground.
As we move through the week we are expecting our temperatures to move up each day. By the time we get to Thursday afternoon temperatures will reach into the 60s all across the ArkLaTex. Besides an isolated shower overnight Tuesday into Wednesday we should be dry through Thursday as well. Thursday night and Friday morning we are tracking a cold front that will be moving through the ArkLaTex and while we are not expecting much in the way of precipitation much colder air will arrive Friday.
Behind the front you should expect another arctic blast as we head into the weekend. High temperatures Friday and Saturday will struggle to make to the 50 degree mark, and low temperatures will again be dipping down into the upper 20s potentially Saturday and Sunday morning. But even though we will see chilly temperatures sunshine will dominate this weekend across the ArkLaTex.
In the meantime, stay warm and bundle up as you dig out this morning! Have a great week!
