FIRST ALERT FORECAST: Cool, calm weather expected for first half of week

Weather Alert Day Friday Severe storms expected

Weather Alert Day Friday Severe storms expected

At 1 p.m., thunderstorms were just beginning to appear along the western edge of coverage of Shreveport weather radar.

Our next chance for rain will hold off until the end of the work week, as our next area of low pressure moves in from the west. If any individual storms develop ahead of the line, they may become supercells, capable of large hail and possibly tornadoes in addition to the damaging wind threat. The Storm Prediction Center has us at a level 2, which means we could see scattered severe storms. Because of the expected progression of this line of storms in the Sunday morning hours, the system may lose some ability to maintain its organization, and some (but not complete) weakening is possible.

Rainfall amounts will range from a trace to a quarter of an inch, with isolated spots east of Austin seeing up to a half an inch. Highs for Sunday will be in the mid 80s with windy conditions.

Sunday will be a beauty as our winds finally ease up. In fact, the heaviest rain falls through the day Sunday. Saturday will be very similar to Friday.

Northwest Florida has a risk of seeing some severe weather Sunday from around 12 a.m.to 7 a.m.

Cooler and more tranquil weather will arrive for Monday. Highs both days will be in the 70s.

Fri: High: 63 Low: 46 Mostly cloudy with showers possible. The chilliest morning looks to be Tuesday with lower 40s otherwise nighttime temperatures will mainly be in the 50s. With a clear sky and light wind expected overnight, temperatures will bottom out in the upper 20s and lower 30s across the area.

As of Saturday afternoon, much of our area was already under a "Slight Risk" for severe weather.
