(KSLA) - Temperatures will remain a little below average for April standards, but will be back on the upswing by this weekend. Look for more breezy and sunny skies to last through the weekend. Next week brings the return of storms and possible severe weather to the ArkLaTex.

Overnight, the clouds will move away, so we will start off your Friday with completely clear conditions. Temperatures will be chilly again, getting down to the mid to upper 40s. Grab a jacket as you head out the door tomorrow morning.

Friday will be a little cooler getting up to the lower to mid 60s for the high. This is despite the abundant sunshine for the day and no rain. Winds will still be on the breezy side, gusting up to 30 mph. It will be fantastic weather to enjoy as we end the work week.

This weekend will continue with more dry weather. Look for all sunny skies and no rain at all! The cloud cover will be rather limited all day Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures will greatly reflect how the wind acts. Saturday morning will have some light winds out of the northwest. Come by Saturday afternoon, the wind will turn out of the southwest. This will pull in warmer temperatures for the next few days. Highs on Saturday will be in the mid to upper 70s, while Sunday will get up to the mid 80s! The humidity will still be nice and low. Get outside and take advantage!

Monday will have mostly dry weather now. It has been trending that way for a couple days. So, I only have a 20% chance of rain. There should be some clouds mixing in with sunshine throughout the day. Temperatures will warm up to the lower 80s.

Tuesday and Wednesday both have a slight risk for severe weather. As of now, all aspects of severe weather is possible including the risk for tornadoes, damaging winds, and hail. There is still a lot we do not know about the storms next week. All of the ingredients for severe weather is in place, hence the severe outlook, however the storms seem to be very unorganized and not forming together very well, according to Futuretrack. We will be watching this closely as it progresses and will First Alert you as we learn more.

I am optimistic that by Thursday the rain will be gone and we return to sunny weather. Temperatures may also be a tad cooler with highs in the 70s. The nice weather appears to last through the end of the week.

Have a great rest of the week!
