SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - The calm weather we’ve been enjoying so far this week comes to an end Thursday as our next weather maker and strong cold front bring a round of storms and potential severe weather followed by much cooler conditions for the weekend.

Tonight, cloud cover will increase along with the wind picking up a bit, with lows in the low-50s.

Looking ahead to Thursday, a strong cold front will be approaching from the west with showers and storms becoming widespread. The first round of storms will arrive Thursday afternoon and these will be more scattered in nature. Some of these afternoon storms could turn severe with large hail the main threat. Temperatures will warm into the upper 60s to low 70s.

By Thursday evening, a larger line of storms will develop along the cold front in east Texas and then march through the entire ArkLaTex deep into the night. Damaging wind gusts will be the main concern with this line but a few embedded tornadoes can’t be ruled out either. All storm activity should exit to the southeast by sunrise Friday.

Much colder air will arrive behind the front on gusty northwest winds with highs on Friday struggling to climb into the low 50s.
