How Much Snow Could Shreveport Get?
It depends on who you talk to and what model you look at as a winter storm system moves across the country. But some experts are predicting snow for our region on Sunday night. Most meteorologists says it is still too early to predict exactly how much snow the Bayou State could see. But they do say this could be a widespread event for North Louisiana.
Senior Radio Broadcast Meteorologist for the Weather Channel Richard Lewelling tells KEEL News the Shreveport Bossier area could see snowfall amounts from "a dusting to 4 inches" from Sunday night into Monday morning.
Our temperature is expected to dip just below freezing early Sunday morning. The temp will climb back up to 44 degrees and then our temperature is expected to fall into the upper 20's on Sunday night and into Monday morning. Right now, the forecast has a 40% chance of snow for late Sunday night into Monday morning.
The big question is will any of the winter precipitation stick to the ground? Lewelling says it is difficult to know right now. But he does add that the ground temperature is unseasonably warm and that could have an impact on what kind of winter event this becomes.
Could we see any icing conditions? He does not think that is likely. He says this is shaping up as a snow event. In our region, Northeast Texas could see as much as 6" of snow.
