Below is the newest forecast from the National Weather Service and Storm Prediction Center for our Friday Weather.
North of IH 20 is now in the level 4 ENHANCED RISK.
Those of us South of IH 20 have moved from the level 2 MARGINAL RISK into the level 3 Slight Risk area and that does include a line from Shreveport to Longview and South to Livingston and on to the West into the Dallas area.
The threat of severe thunderstorms will return to the NWS Shreveport Region on Friday as a power storm system tracks East into the area. Areas near and North of Interstate 20 have been upgraded from a slight to an enhanced risk.
Timing and Overview:
Although a few thunderstorms may develop during the morning hours on Friday, it appears that the main threat of severe storms will occur later in the afternoon and evening, and possibly continue well into the overnight hours.
Four State Impacts:
Impacts: The main threat from these storms will be damaging winds, large hail, and possible tornadoes. Locally heavy rainfall and flash flooding are other possible threats with these storms, although the occurrence of either of these threats will remain more limited in scope in the Slight Risk Area. I will have more information during the morning NWS Weather Briefing.
