Severe weather is headed for the Shreveport area today. In fact, the entire state of Louisiana is under the gun for storms this week.

As you might have noticed over the weekend, it has been unseasonably warm in the region with temps in the mid 75’s. But a cold front is on the way and that will bring some weather changes as the front moves through.

The National Weather Service in Shreveport says “scattered strong to severe thunderstorms cannot be ruled out today ahead of a strong cold front that will be moving into the region. At this time, it appears that damaging wind gusts and an isolated large hail threat would be the main impacts from any severe thunderstorms that develop today.
