Nasty weather is bearing down on Louisiana. We have seen temperatures this week way above normal and even hitting 80 degrees in Shreveport a couple of times. Things will be changing this weekend.

When Will the Weather Change in Shreveport Bossier?

A strong cold front is headed our way. This front, which brought severe weather including the very first ever recorded December tornado in Minnesota, is currently bisecting the country from the Great Lakes southward into west Texas.

Our high temperature on Saturday should climb to 68 with the low temp dropping to 38.

The greatest threat for severe storms stretches from the Shreveport Bossier area down to Lake Charles. The system will be moving through the state Saturday morning. If you will be attending the Radiance Technologies Independence Bowl game featuring BYU VS UAB, you should bring your rain gear. Kickoff is at 2:30pm and it will probably be rainy.

We will see temps today (Friday) near record highs close to 80 degrees. It will be hot and very humid as the cold front approaches.

What Can We Expect on Sunday?

On Sunday morning, we will have temperatures 40 colder than we have been seeing. You will certainly have to break out the jackets for Sunday and into next week.

Our high temperature for Sunday will only be 51 degrees with a low of 35.
