Rain chance increases tonight

By  | 

MONROE, La. (KNOE) - A weak cold front over northern Arkansas will be sliding southward into the overnight, bringing the chance for a few showers and maybe a thunderstorm ahead of it.

The showers will mainly be around I-20 and northward, it just depends on how far south that front moves.

It looks like it's going to stall out in the central part of our viewing area by mid morning though which will lead to upper 60s and lower 70s in the north of the front, with upper 70s and lower 80s south of the front.

The stationary front will transition to a warm front on Monday and slide northward, allowing for temperatures to get into the lower and mid 80s by the afternoon.

We could see another round of light showers as the front moves northward with showers and storms increasing pretty quick going into Tuesday, and definitely Wednesday through Thursday.

We're looking at a decent amount of rain as well, since this southerly wind is ushering in a ton of moisture to our area.

It looks like the rain totals through Thursday evening will be around 4-5 inches so we're going to have to watch for flash flooding concerns on Wednesday and Thursday, as well as the possibility for severe weather.

Once the cold front slides through, clouds will clear late on Thursday into the weekend and we should be a bit drier for a few days.
