Is More Extreme Weather Making Its Way to Shreveport?
Can we just take a minute to talk about Mother Nature? Because the last two weeks have been WILD! Literally, this time last week, we were staring at 4-6 inches of snow and temps were down into the teens. Today, it's literally sunny and almost 80. This is literally the craziest weather swing I've ever seen! And, based off the latest from the National Weather Service, this wild weather is only about to get crazier.
The National Weather Service in Shreveport has announced that there's a "severe weather risk" for Thursday night (February 25th). At this time, Shreveport-Bossier is in 'marginal' danger. By definition, that means we could see 60-70 mile per hour winds, quarter to half-dollar sized hail and there's even a small chance of a tornado. Oh, and of course, there's the risk of strong to severe thunderstorms.
Below is the NWS weather graphic and warning:
The snow and ice may be gone, but it sounds like our headaches are just beginning this week. We'll be keeping an eye on any and all updates. Hopefully, someone jump starts the Barksdale Bubble and we can avoid this entire mess. I've had about enough of Mother Nature's mood swings.
