Severe storms possible late Monday into Tuesday morning


UPDATED: 11:45 a.m.

SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – A warm front and cold front combination will bring the chance of strong to severe storms later today. The main severe weather threat will be damaging wind gusts, with a lower but existing threat for tornadoes and large hail as well. 

The Storm Prediction Center has a ‘marginal risk’ for strong to severe storms across east Texas and Louisiana, a level 1 threat on the 1 to 5 scale across east Texas and Louisiana. This means 1 or 2 storms could become severe.

Monday forecast highs

Rain and thunderstorms will become more widespread this afternoon as an area of low pressure churns across the region and interacts with our warm front. The strongest storms may be later this evening into tonight, with the severe weather threat tapering off overnight. We may see a few lingering showers early Tuesday morning but dry air will take over for much of the day Tuesday.

Expected rainfall accumulations will average .5 inches to 1 inch, but due to the expected thunderstorms, we may see many areas receive over 1 inch of rain. Isolated flash flooding could be possible if any areas receive a few rounds of storms, but widespread flash flood issues aren’t likely to occur. 

We’ll stay dry Wednesday with pleasant Spring temperatures for the rest of the week as highs will be in the 60s and 70s. 

We will be in a zonal flow Wednesday through Friday which means we won’t see any major ridges or troughs bring any significant weather or temperature swings. A few disturbances in the flow will bring slight to scattered chances for rain Thursday through Saturday.
