More Severe Weather Could Hit North Louisiana Thursday/Friday
The National Weather Service in Shreveport has issued yet another Hazardous Weather Outlook for Shreveport and most of the Arklatex.
While the weather today will be relatively nice for most of the area, forecasters are expecting a pretty significant change in the form of possibly damaging thunderstorms which could slam into the area late Thursday and hanging around into Friday.
In that Hazardous Weather Outlook, the National Weather Service warns that strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible later in the day tomorrow through tomorrow night across portions of Northeast Texas, Southeast Oklahoma, Southwest Arkansas and Northwest Louisiana.
With those anticipated storms, forecasters say that:
The atmosphere will support the development of large hail and damaging thunderstorm wind gusts with any severe thunderstorms late Thursday through Thursday Night. An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. In addition to the severe weather threat Thursday into Thursday night, excessive heavy rainfall will be possible. The heavy rainfall threat will continue into Friday as well across mainly portions of Northern and Northeastern Louisiana.
The National Weather Service adds that the moderate to heavy rainfall will bring a potential for isolated Flash Flooding across most of the immediate area.
In the illustration below, the highlighted areas indicate either at least a 5 percent or 15 percent chance for flooding within 25 miles of a point.
