(KSLA) - Rain and storms will pick up ahead of slow moving cold front the next couple of days. We’ll be wettest later Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. A few strong storms are possible starting Tuesday afternoon, but the overall severe risk looks limited.

Clouds will roll back in tonight. A stray shower or strong storm may impact areas north of I-30, but most will stay dry. Temperatures will cool to the upper 50s and lower 60s.

Tuesday will be dry for most of the ArkLaTex. There will be more rain south of I-20 than to the north. The I-49 corridor looks wettest with a strong storm even possible. There is a marginal risk for more severe storms in this same area. Gusty winds and maybe some hail are possible. There will not be a lot of sunshine, but a few peeks every now and then. Temperatures will warm up to the upper 70s and lower 80s.

Rain and storms will be on the increase later Tuesday night all across the ArkLaTex. Heavy downpours look possible. So far, the severe potential looks to stay low. It will be a wet commute to work and school Wednesday though in many areas.

By Wednesday afternoon a cold front will have passed through the area bringing in drier and cooler conditions. There might be a little sunshine trying to come out too. Temperatures will only warm up to the lower and mid 60s.

Thursday we will take a little break from the rain. There will be a good mix of sun and clouds with only a 10% chance of a quick shower. Temperatures will still be a bit cool. Highs will only be in the upper 60s.

Friday will go back to some showers and storms. It will not rain all day, but I would be ready for scattered storms, particularly by the afternoon. So far, the severe threat is low, but we will give you the First Alert if this changes. Highs will get up to the 60s once again.

This weekend will be beautiful! We will have more clouds hanging around, but there will be little to no rain. Both days will be ideal to get back outside to enjoy the weather! Highs will be in the upper 60s and lower 70s which is below average for this time of year.

Have a great week!
