(KSLA) - Showers and storms return again Tuesday night with a strong cold front. There is a small risk for severe weather as the storms push through. The rain will linger into Wednesday morning with much cooler weather expected for the second half of the week.

Tonight will have clouds increase after midnight. There should not be any rain though. So, it will be a dry commute in the morning. Temperatures will cool down to the upper 40s north to the upper 50s south.

Tuesday will be cloudy, but not too wet during the daytime. There could be a couple stray showers during the day. There may be a little sunshine, but more clouds than anything else. Temperatures will get up to the upper 70s and lower 80s.

Tuesday night is when this cold front arrives. This will bring in the strong storms and cooler temperatures. There is a marginal risk (1 out of 5) for severe weather as this cold front pushes through the ArkLaTex. We are monitoring mostly for damaging winds and large hail. An isolated tornado is not ruled out, but the risk looks pretty low. The threat is mostly from I-20 and north.

The rain will linger into Wednesday morning, but will be coming to an end by the noon hour. There should still be more clouds hanging around. Depending on how quick the clouds clear out will determine the temperatures. Near the I-30 corridor should see more afternoon sunshine. Temperatures by afternoon may only be in the 50s to low 60s across the area.

Clear and cold nights are likely to end the week. Frost is looking very likely as temperatures drop in the 30s Thursday and Friday mornings. Afternoon highs will run cooler than average in the mid 60s, but at least is looks sunny and dry.

Temperatures will gradually warm up through the weekend. Good news is that there will be a lot of sunshine all Easter weekend long. I also have the rain chances at 0% so it will be perfect for any Easter egg hunting for the kids. Saturday will be mostly sunny and get to the 60s, and Sunday will be sunny and warm up to the 70s.

Have a great week!
