Sunshine today, but changes are coming

MONROE, La. (KNOE) - Temperatures will be a few degrees warmer than Wednesday with highs in the low 60s by the afternoon, along with plenty of sunshine still.

We'll likely have a few clouds passing overhead late tonight and on Friday it'll be a mix of clouds and sun.

The southerly wind returns Friday, bringing a little bit warmer temperatures and some low-level moisture too.

The clouds continue to increase into Saturday when we'll be a bit more overcast, maybe a few peeks of sunshine early, but definitely overcast by the afternoon when showers and thunderstorms develop ahead of a cold front.

Scattered severe storms are possible ahead of this cold front as the Storm Prediction Center has already put a good chunk of northeast Louisiana under a Marginal and Slight Risk.

We'll likely be dealing with strong wind, heavy downpours, frequent lightning, small hail, and the threat for isolated tornadoes.

The cold front will pass by Sunday afternoon, which will usher in cooler and drier air to start off the work week.

We could have a few lingering clouds behind the front come Monday morning, but likely seeing plenty of sunshine.

The sunshine and drier weather will continue through much of the work week as well.
