(KSLA) - Strong to severe storms continue to move through tonight in advance of a cold front. We’ll get back to dry and calm weather just in time for the weekend.

A line of strong to severe storms will push through the ArkLaTex tonight. Wind gusts of 70mph and hail up to golf ball sized are possible. The tornado risk looks low, but a spin-up or 2 is not out of the question. Storms should be exiting the area no later than 3 or 4 am. Temperatures will cool back into the 50s by morning.

This weekend will go back to dry and sunny weather as we take a break from these storms. Saturday will have more clouds around in the morning, transitioning to more sunshine in the afternoon. Temperatures will reach the mid 70s. Sunday will have abundant sunshine with no chance of rain. After a chilly start in the upper 40s, temperatures will warm up to the lower 80s by afternoon.

Monday should start the week off with a mix of sun and clouds and little to no chance of rain. It should remain dry with just the 10% chance of rain. Temperatures will get up to the lower 80s.

Then from Tuesday to Thursday, there should be scattered showers and storms every day. It’s too far out to tell if there will be any severe weather. However, considering we are in April and this is severe weather season for the ArkLaTex, it is certainly not ruled out of any stronger storms. We will be your First Alert if anything does appear to be severe.

Have a great weekend and stay safe tonight!
