A front will push through the area this morning bringing a few showers before noon. There hasn't been a lot of lightning with the showers as they've moved over northwestern Louisiana, and we shouldn't expect the showers to get much stronger as the day goes on. There will be a considerable amount of cloud cover during the morning, as temperatures have remained in the mid 70s. Once the front moves through, expect stronger winds out of the northwest and skies gradually clearing. Temperatures won't cool down immediately, so low 80s will be a good bet with sunshine this afternoon.

Overnight, we'll see mostly clear skies. Temperatures will be considerably cooler as lows drop into the lower 50s, some upper 40s for the northern sections. Lots of sunshine can be expected for Wednesday with highs in the mid 70s. Breezes will still be pushing 15-20 mph during the afternoon. Expect another cool one Wednesday night with lows in the mid 50s under clear skies. Sunny skies return Thursday with highs in the upper 70s.

The next system will approach from the west on Friday with a front moving in on Saturday. Expect clouds and rain chances to increase Friday and linger through the weekend as the front is expected to stall over the area. Temperatures will remain above normal through the weekend.
