If you haven't heard by now, a blast of arctic weather has the Shreveport and Bossier City areas in its sights. This system will move in late into the weekend, and remain in place through early next week. The predictions have settled on some form of arctic weather, but the levels of precipitation and threshold for low temps are all over the place in different forecasts.

Right now, the City of Shreveport is preparing for these freezing conditions to bring real concern to the area. The posted these advisories today online:

But now it would appear there's a second weather concern that Shreveport could deal with ahead of the wintery weather.

The National Weather Service in Shreveport has upgraded the Severe Weather outlook in Shreveport for Thursday and Friday. The forecast has moved the chance of severe weather from "Marginal" to "Slight". In other words, on a scale of 1-5, with 5 being the highest chance for impactful severe weather, Shreveport is now at a 2.

The main threats associated with this Severe Weather outlook includes damaging winds, large hail, and tornadoes. The forecast does not predict concern for flooding.

If this severe weather materializes between Thursday and Friday, it could create a one-two punch for the Shreveport area this weekend. If these storms are severe enough to cause disruptions to the power grid, or strains resources before the winter weather arrives, it could put Shreveport and the surrounding areas into a bind.

Even if you aren't convinced that either of these two weather scenarios will be as serious as predictions, you should probably consider a plan in case something bad does happen.
