ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB) - It’s going to be another cool night Saturday night. Temperatures will dip into the mid-upper 40′s Sunday morning with clear skies and calm conditions. It will be the coolest of the early fall season so far; but not near records. Our record low is 36 set back in 1943! Highs Sunday will only be in the mid 70′s with mostly sunny to fair skies. That will also be the coolest afternoon of the fall season as well.

Temperatures will eventually get back to average as a weak ridge of high pressure takes hold. It will be a long and slow recovery though as we will not reach 80 for highs until Wednesday. Our lows will recover back into the 60′s Wednesday morning. The ridge of high pressure will keep us dry through Tuesday night with rain chances back into the forecast Wednesday.

The best rain chances look to be Wednesday as a weak short wave moves through. Although, slight rain chances will still be around as another cool front rolls in by Friday morning. Behind the front things dry out with highs back into the 70′s and lows into the 50′s.
