SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – The rain or wind you hear this morning is the sound of Fall finally arriving in the ArkLaTex. I repeat, Fall temperatures are expected today.
This morning rain continues to move south along the front and it will impact areas of east Texas and Louisiana through the late morning and early afternoon. Storms aren’t severe but could bring frequent lightning and wind gusts in the 30 to 40 mph range.
Future clouds and radar shows a slow clearing across the northern ArkLaTex with all areas getting some sunshine to return as we move deeper into the day. See the latest loop of futurecast below:
