Weather

11 PM Update: The threat of severe weather is decreasing. However, we are following two areas of thunderstorms. Along the cold front, an area of thunderstorms is slowly drifting to the south. If storms continue at this current pace, we could see some minor flooding in Northern Bossier and Caddo Parish. Over the southern edge of the region, heavy thunderstorms are moving out of the ArkLaTex. However, light to moderate rain continues to fall.

Rain and thunderstorms will be sticking around in the forecast through Wednesday. An additional 2-3″ of rain is possible with some heavier totals to fall. Always remember to TURN AROUND AND DON’T DROWN!

7 PM Update: The cold front is south of Interstate 30. As of 7 PM, we are seeing an uptick of showers and storms along the cold front as it is approaching Interstate 20. We have several Flash Flood Warnings for Sabine Parish and the southern parts of Shelby County in Texas. Thunderstorms in Deep East Texas have dumped over 3-4 inches and it is still raining! For any other thunderstorms tonight, the main concerns will be wind, hail, and heavy rain that could lead to flooding!

SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) — Happy Mother’s Day. A cold front will invade the ArkLaTex Sunday afternoon and evening will bring strong to severe storms. The Storm Prediction Center indicates that we have an enhanced severe weather risk with damaging wind the most likely severe weather concern. Large hail will also be possible with a few storms possibly producing up to golf ball-sized hail. The tornado risk is looking rather low, but an isolated tornado or two cannot be ruled out. The National Weather Service has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch that is in effect for most of the Arklatex until 9 pm.

Below you will find a continuously updated stream of current and forecast information. We will likely provide occasional live updates once the storms start to develop.

With the grounds being saturated, it will not take much to cause some localized flooding concerns if we see too much rain in a short period of time. The rainy period will end on Thursday. Sunshine will return Thursday-Saturday.
