The National Weather Service has issued a Tornado Watch that is in effect for much of the ArkLaTex until 7 pm Saturday evening.
6 pm Update: The severe weather threat is beginning to wind down for the region. Tornado Watch only includes the southern edge of the ArkLaTex. The line of storms continues to weaken. The storms will probably be out of the region between 7-8 pm. Following the storms, skies will clear out for Sunday.
The weather pattern becomes quiet for the next couple of days. Highs will remain in the 50s and 60s. Our next chance of rain will come by Thursday.
2 pm Update: We continue to watch two lines of thunderstorms that are moving southeast across the area. The strongest line is moving across deep East Texas and the southern sections of North Louisiana south of I-20. If we have any severe weather issues, this will likely be the line that will produce them. There is still a chance to see a tornado or two mainly within this line.
The second line of showers and thunderstorms is associated with the cold front. Once this clears your area, your severe weather threat will be over for the day. We will likely see the threat end in Shreveport-Bossier by 3pm. The severe threat will likely be over for the entire area between 5-6 pm.
