November 16 – Weather forecast for Shreveport, Texarkana: Cloudy today, rain next week
SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Our cloudy and foggy weather will continue Thursday, with hopefully sunshine sometime Friday and Saturday. Widespread showers and a few thunderstorms are possible as a cold front passes through late Sunday into Monday.
today: Temperatures will be in the 50s at sunrise under overcast skies. Light fog/drizzle was reported across the I-30 corridor between Mount Pleasant and Texarkana, but this drizzle could develop anywhere early this morning.
Low pressure in the Gulf of Mexico continues to send a never-ending canopy of clouds in our direction, and it will likely remain overcast throughout the day, pushing temperatures into the mid-60s. While the morning fog/drizzle should end as temperatures slowly rise later in the day, as we cool off this evening, there may be some additional pockets of drizzle during tonight.
Friday: We’ll start the day with fog and drizzle, and will likely remain cloudy to mostly cloudy. The wind direction will shift from north to south, pushing warm air into the pattern on Friday with highs in the low to mid 70s. A cold front will arrive Friday night, likely a dry front as no rain is expected.
weekend: The sun will finally appear on Saturday with drier air temporarily taking over, and it will be a great day to be outside with temperatures in the low 70s. Sunny skies will disappear on Sunday as a stronger cold front reaches the ArkLaTex. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected late Sunday afternoon into Sunday night. The threat of severe weather is low, but a strong storm or two, especially due to wind/hail, cannot be ruled out.
Sunday night to Monday: The rain will continue early Monday morning before subsiding after sunrise. Temperatures will be on the warmer side at 70 degrees on Monday, with warm and humid air bringing about another round of thunderstorms that will likely develop Monday afternoon into Monday night.
Tuesday through Thanksgiving: Cold air will arrive late Monday dropping to highs into the mid 50s with a northerly breeze on Tuesday and Wednesday. We should see the sun back in our lives by Tuesday afternoon, with mostly sunny skies on Wednesday into Thanksgiving. Turkey Day looks to be one of the nicer days next week with mostly sunny skies and highs in the low to mid 60s.
