November 21 – Weather forecast for Shreveport, Texarkana
SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Cold air has returned to the ArkLaTex and it looks like it’s here to stay. Daytime highs will likely remain below normal through the weekend, Thanksgiving, and throughout next week. Rain is on the horizon but will likely not be heavy.
Keep a jacket handy: If you plan to go out, you’ll want to keep a jacket handy. Wednesday was mostly cloudy with brisk northwesterly winds. Temperatures started out in the 40s and low 50s and struggled to move much during the day. Expect another fairly cold night Wednesday night as low temperatures will likely drop into the 30s and 40s. Daytime highs Wednesday afternoon will likely be in the 50s across much of the region.
Cold Thanksgiving: Thanksgiving also seems rather cold this time of year. The day will likely start with plenty of sunshine but clouds will increase during the day. Temperatures will start out in the 30s across the entire area and will likely return to the mid-50s to highs during the day.
Little sun on the way: The clouds that persisted throughout most of Tuesday will likely move down Tuesday night. We should see plenty of sunshine on Wednesday and mostly clear skies for most of Wednesday night. Futurecast shows that clouds will begin to gradually move into our area during the day on Thanksgiving but we will likely stay dry. Some brief scattered showers will return to the ArkLaTex Thursday night and Friday morning. We could see a few breaks in the clouds late Friday afternoon.
Long-term outlook: The rest of the extended Thanksgiving weekend should be dry. We will see a mix of sunshine and clouds on Saturday. Clouds are likely to start returning on Sunday. Our next best chance for more widespread rain will begin Sunday night and will likely continue into next Monday. Potential 10-day precipitation forecasts from the model mix show that total precipitation over much of the region over the next week and a half will likely be less than 1/4 inch across much of the region. Amounts will range from 1/10″ in the north to about 3/4″ in the south. Temperatures this weekend and throughout next week won’t change much. Overnight lows will likely remain in the 40s and daytime highs will be in the 50s and low 60s. Since some cold air will dominate our weather over the next few weeks, severe weather is unlikely at this time.
