SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Strong northwest winds will continue to usher in some much cooler air across the ArkLaTex this afternoon. Temperatures will hold steady in the mid to upper 50s with northwest winds gusting over 30 mph making it feel much cooler at times.

Heading into tonight, it gets even colder with temperatures plunging into the 30s but feeling colder at times with the breeze.

For Friday, we’ll see plenty of sunshine throughout the day but it will stay cool with highs only in the 50s and overnight temperatures falling below freezing in many areas!

This weekend is looking fantastic with plenty of sunshine on Saturday and highs close to 60. More clouds arrive Sunday and it will start to turn warmer with a south breeze. Highs should be close to 70 to round out the weekend.

Looking ahead to next week, the warming trend continues with highs well into the 70s from Monday through Wednesday. A weak system could bring some showers on Monday but a much stronger system has the potential to bring widespread storms and severe weather by the middle of next week.

Have a great afternoon!
