More clouds filter in for Monday

By  | 

MONROE, La. (KNOE) - It's been another gorgeous day so far and we'll still remain pretty clear the rest of the afternoon, but clouds will start filtering in by tonight.

This is because the stalled front over central Arkansas will be moving southward tonight, and then stalling out around the Arkansas/Louisiana border by the morning.

That's going to keep us fairly cloudy early especially around I-20 northward, then a bit more sunshine in the southern part of the viewing area.

Unsettled weather moves in for Tuesday as a cold front sweeps through around sunset.

Severe weather is possible as we're already under a slight risk from the Storm Prediction Center, and we could see quarter sized hail, strong winds 58 mph or higher, with possibly tornadoes.

Temperatures in the afternoon will likely get into the lower 80s with partly sunny skies, and a breezy south-southwesterly wind which could add to the instability in the atmosphere.

We are expecting the severe storms to come through in mid to late afternoon (possibly around sunset) so we'll be watching that timeline and getting a better idea as we get closer.

Wednesday we'll be a bit below average in the afternoon as we have cooler and drier air filter in behind the front, and expect it to be pretty breezy as we'll have a strong high pressure behind the front moving through pretty quickly.

That's why it won't be long before the southerly wind returns, likely by Thursday afternoon.

Temperatures seem to be pretty average Thursday and Friday, but more cloud cover will filter in ahead of another weak cold front that could stall out in the area by Saturday leading to a little bit of unsettled weather over next weekend.
