(KSLA) - Showers and storms are back by this weekend. However, it will not be a washout. There will be times of dry weather. Meanwhile, temperatures will remain in the mid 80s in the afternoon.

Overnight, temperatures will not be quite as cool. It will only cool to the upper 50s and lower 60s. So, you may not need a jacket as you head out the door in the morning. This is the start of higher humidity which makes it harder for temperatures to cool overnight. There will also be a few clouds, but still no chance of rain.

Friday will remain dry with limited clouds. There will still be plenty of sunshine mixing in with no chance of rain. With the sunshine, get ready for high temperatures to be back in the mid to upper 80s. I don’t think we will quite get up to the 90s though. However, it may feel like it with more humidity.

Looking towards the weekend, our next weather maker will be moving in. This will be a cold front that will end up stalling out right on top of the ArkLaTex and will be bringing showers and storms for Saturday and Sunday. Right now, I have a 30% chance of rain Saturday and a 40% chance Sunday. Sunday looks like the wetter of the two days. Throughout the weekend it will be a lot of scattered and on and off activity. So it will not be a washout nor one long continuous event. If you are planning to go to Taco Wars, I would pack an umbrella just in case. Temperatures will warm up to the mid 80s. The humidity will also be up quite a bit, so it will not feel very comfortable.

The rain will likely linger into Monday. Severe weather potential is still low, but there is an official severe weather outlook in place that covers Northeast Texas and most of Southwest Arkansas. This also includes McCurtain county Oklahoma, and the far corner of Northwest Louisiana. Being a Day 5 outlook, all forms of severe weather are possible but it is more likely with this set up of seeing large hail, and strong winds. We will follow the storms closely, so follow your First Alert Weather Team for the latest. Temperatures will warm up to the mid 80s.

Tuesday now looks to have more lingering showers and storms. It will still not be a washout, but you’ll want your umbrella as you head out the door. The latest guidance shows the storms sticking around through the afternoon, then winding down by the evening and overnight hours. I have a 40% chance of rain for the day. Temperatures will be getting up to the upper 80s.

Wednesday finally looks to have drier weather return. I still have a 20% chance of rain incase a few showers linger, but overall, it will be better to get outside. With that said, it will still be very warm if not hot. Temperatures will top out in the mid to upper 80s with plenty of humidity.

Have a great rest of the week, and plan your weekend accordingly!
