Another Round Of Severe Storms To Pound Shreveport Today
Apparently Mother Nature isn't done with us yet.
We are exactly one week away from the start of summer, with that beginning on Wednesday, June 21, but we are apparently in for another of those "summer squalls" rolling into the Arklatex today.
According to the National Weather Service in Shreveport, another round of strong to severe thunderstorms is expected today and tonight.
These thunderstorms will have the potential to produce large hail and damaging winds. In addition, heavy rainfall may occur which could pose a threat of localized flash flooding.
We are currently under a Severe Thunderstorm Watch which is scheduled to expire at 6:00 am this morning, but with radar indications of another band of severe weather possibly rolling in later this morning, another Watch or Warning could be issued later this morning or afternoon.
In the most recent Hazardous Weather Outlook from the National Weather Service we read that most of the immediate Arklatex area is at an "Enhanced Risk" for severe weather with the potential for strong to severe thunderstorms to persist through today and tonight as the frontal boundary is expected to remain nearly stationary and linger across the region.
Damaging wind gusts and large hail will remain possible. An isolated tornado also cannot be ruled out.
By late week and through the weekend, thunderstorm chances will decrease while temperatures increase into the mid and upper 90s to near 100 degrees with heat advisory conditions possible.
