SHREVEPORT, La, (KTAL/KMSS) – It will be breezy and very warm for the next 2 days and likely dry as well. Scattered rain showers will return late this week, with a strong cold front bringing a return of the cooler Fall temperatures for much of next week.

Temperatures are quite warm this morning for late October as we’ll be in the upper 60s at sunrise. A breezy south wind will develop during the morning and continue into the afternoon with sustained speeds of 15 miles per hour and frequent gusts to 20 miles per hour. The combination of the warm south wind and more sunshine today will push highs into the mid to upper 80s, not far from record highs for the date.

We did have some rain around yesterday, but the warm front responsible for those showers has moved northwest and away from the ArkLaTex. Rain will likely stay away today, but we’ll see a few clouds as it will be a partly cloudy morning and afternoon.
