Severe Weather Likely After Midnight

NWS Shreveport
A potentially significant severe weather event is likely late this afternoon through tonight across all of the region. All modes of severe weather will be possible, especially damaging winds and tornadoes! Large hail and flash flooding cannot be ruled out

Forecasters are warning of hurricane-force wind gusts and hail across the region as a potent storm threatens to spin up tornadoes and drench  Louisiana and Arkansas with heavy rains up to 3 inches.  The storm system will form a squall line in Texas and move into North Louisiana after midnight. The National Weather Service says wind gusts could top 80 mph — the speed of a Category 1 hurricane.

Take time now to prepare. Have multiple ways to recieve weather warnings including a battery power radio tuned to 90.3 KEDM Public Radio.
