SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Happy Thursday! More record heat is likely through the weekend, but relief is coming with a cold front early next week. Some rain is back in the forecast as well.

An Excessive Heat Warning will remain in place until tomorrow evening. The Red Flag Warning for elevated fire danger continues into Friday. The drought conditions have worsened across the entire ArkLaTex as the latest data was released earlier today.

By Friday and into Saturday a few more isolated showers may pop up in the afternoon heat, but they’ll do little to alleviate the ongoing drought conditions and high fire danger. Weekend temperatures will remain in the low 100s.

A slight shift in the weather pattern will allow a ‘cold’ front to drop into the ArkLaTex by the start of next week. Temperatures will ease back into the 90s with lower humidity helping to usher in somewhat more comfortable nights. Rain chances remain slim with the front with only limited showers expected at this time.
