February 5 – Weather forecast for Shreveport, Texarkana
SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Some sunshine finally returned to the ArkLaTex on Monday and will likely stick around for a few days. The risk of rain will return on Thursday and may continue until the end of next week. Another inch or two of rain will be possible in some areas.
Wonderful Tuesday: Tuesday will get off to a rather cold start as all ArkLaTex will dip into the 30s. Despite the cold start, Tuesday afternoon temperatures will be above normal again as we will see daytime highs warm into the mid 60s.
Expect warmer temperatures for the rest of the week. Overnight low temperatures will eventually rise into the 50s. Daytime highs will eventually return to the upper 60s to lower 70s.
Enjoy some sunshine while you can: A large area of upper-level high pressure will move over the ArkLaTex over the next few days. This will continue the sunshine we enjoyed on Monday. Futurecast shows we will see mostly clear skies Monday night. Expect some clouds mixed with plenty of sunshine on Tuesday. We’ll likely stay partly cloudy Tuesday night and again see that mix of sunshine and clouds on Wednesday. This will likely be the end of our break from the rain.
Another boring weekend? The next upper level trough that now dumps all the rain on California will do the same for our area late this week and into this weekend. We will likely see this system approaching in waves. Our first shot of rain will arrive Thursday and Friday in the form of some showers. We could have enough instability on Saturday to see some thunderstorms. Severe weather cannot be ruled out yet, but any risk appears low at this stage. The patterns are split when the last impulse passes through this wet pattern. Most indicate it will be Sunday. Some indicate that it will be Monday.
How much rain? A look at the 7-day rainfall forecast from the Weather Prediction Center indicates that the heaviest rain will be over the southeastern half of the region where an inch or two is possible. Amounts decrease in the northwest with the northwest edge of the area getting less than 1 inch. The 10-day forecast from the model combination also shows that heavy rain will hit East Texas and northwest of Los Angeles. Amounts of about 1.5 inches are shown for these areas. Amounts can be closer to ½ inch on the northwest edge of the area. There is still some disagreement in the models at the end of this event, so some changes are still likely. Stay tuned!
