Here’s The Latest On Shreveport’s Hazardous Weather This Evening
The National Weather Service in Shreveport has updated the information regarding the impending storms bearing down on Shreveport and the entire Ark-La-Tex.
In this most recent update, forecasters state that showers and thunderstorms will begin to increase late this morning through this afternoon, well ahead of a cold front and associated upper level disturbance that will approach the region from the west.
While an isolated severe threat will exist with these storms, with large hail possible, the majority of the severe weather will hold off until late afternoon through tonight as these storms gradually become more surface based and organize along the cold front as it enters the region late.
These storms should develop into a line as they shift southeast through the region tonight along the cold front, before diminishing from northwest to southeast late.
Large hail, damaging winds, and isolated tornadoes are the main threats late this afternoon through tonight, before the severe threat diminishes late.
Locally heavy rainfall, with as much as two inches in the Shreveport area, will also be possible in the stronger storms, which may result in minor flooding of low lying, poor drainage areas.
Colder temperatures will spill south into the area Friday through the upcoming weekend, with temperatures possibly falling to near or below freezing over portions of Northeast Texas, Southeast Oklahoma, and Southwest Arkansas this weekend through Monday morning.
