Overview
There is a Low Pressure System over the Dallas/Fortworth area that is slowly moving toward Central Louisiana. In the wake of this system, a vast ridge of high pressure is building in, providing clearing skies and colder conditions upstream. Elsewhere, a secondary System is forming north of the Midwest.

Discussion
A weak piece of energy aloft moved over the area, this morning and brought with it widespread rainfall that had an average accumulation around a tenth of an inch. Best rain chances will be tonight, directly in advance of a cold front that is pushing SE toward Central Louisiana. We are in a slight risk for severe weather (issued by the Storm Prediction Center). This risk will start late this afternoon and run through the overnight hours as this front moves through the area. During this time, we will see our highest rain chances. The severe threat will taper off taper off during the early morning hours of Tuesday. After that, a few lingering showers can be expected until a ridge of high pressure begins to dig in and clear out the clouds.
  
For the rest of the day,
In advance of this system, we have been seeing scattered showers and thunderstorms all morning. The cold front will move through the area late today and during the overnight hours. Bringing with it, another round of rain across the area, coupled with a slight risk for severe weather. So, expect to see mostly cloudy skies with rain chances returning later this evening. Winds will be light to moderate and out of the South & SW, becoming moderate and variable.
Overnight, we will see temperatures drop a little, into the upper 50's and lower 60's with a very likely chance for rain and a continued slight risk for severe weather.

For the rest of the 7day planner
After a front pushes through and a dry midweek with a cold air mass overhead, rain chances will return on Thursday as low level energy allow southerly flow off the gulf to develop. The next piece of energy will move through the area Thursday night and early Friday.
Temperatures will drop into the 30's Tuesday and Wednesday night.

TODAY...Expect mostly cloudy to overcast skies with a likely chance (60%) for rain and a slight risk for severe weather, associated with an approaching cold front. Highs 73-79. Calm, becoming South wind 5-15mph.

MONDAY NIGHT...Rain and thunderstorms continue as a cold front moves through the area with a slight risk for severe weather. Lows 55-61. SW, becoming North wind 2-8mph. Rain chance (70%).
