This week looks like a repeat of what we just had last week, at least in terms of temperatures. Heat will build as a gusty southwest breeze brings in the hot temperatures out of Texas. Rain chances are zero until this weekend when a cold front finally heads our way to put an end to the hot forecast. Unfortunately, the return of Spring-like weather also means severe risks returning to the ArkLaMiss. Showers and storms will stay in the forecast through the weekend and into the first half of next week.

Overnight: Mostly clear skies and little to no wind will help temperatures fall into the upper 60s and lower 70s by sunrise.

Tomorrow through Friday: We’ll have mostly sunny skies and a southerly breeze each day that could gust to 20mph at times. Expect highs in the low to mid 90s and heat indices a few degrees higher.

Saturday: Rain chances are set to return at 50% for mainly the PM hours as a cold front arrives late in the day. Storms could be on the strong side and possibly severe, so we’ll be keeping an eye on them. Highs will be a touch lower in the upper 80s to lower 90s under otherwise partly cloudy skies.

Sunday: Morning rain chances are 40% with whatever gets carried over from Saturday night. Temperatures will be driven down by the cooler, drier air from north, so highs will be in the low to mid 80s under partly cloudy skies.

Monday & Tuesday: Only a slim 20% rain chance accounts for a few showers and storms across parishes near the Mississippi River. Otherwise, expect partly cloudy skies and highs in the mid 80s.
