SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Happy New Year! A little cloudier and a little warmer today with highs in the mid-70s. There is a tiny chance for an isolated sprinkle but I wouldn’t cancel plans over them. Tonight, lows will drop to the 50s and 60s as cloud cover continues increasing.

Monday showers and storms are likely and severe weather is looking likely too. The Storm Prediction Center has placed the ArkLaTex under an enhanced risk for severe weather. That is a 3 out of 5 risk on the numerical scale. They have been keeping a close eye on Monday for several days now and confidence is decently high, even 3 days out, that severe weather is going to happen. All modes are on the table with damaging wind gusts and tornadoes being the main threats we’re watching for. Download the KSLA First Alert Weather App and turn on notifications. Timing for the storms looks to be in the afternoon and around peak commuting times.
