You Won’t Believe How Much Snow is on the Way [VIDEO]
The Weather Channel's Richard Lewelling details the approaching cold front and possible winter storm, which he says could drop as many as six inches of snow on the ArkLaTex.
"It looks like we're going to be dealing with everything here in the coming days, probably a huge winter storm" Lewelling begins, talking about the threat of cold, ice and snow. "It's going to roll across the region (and) probably dump up to six inches of snow."
Lewelling says that the cold weather currently gripping the area will only get worse in the days to come. He says the Shreveport - Bossier area will get a short respite Sunday, but after that, temperatures may not climb above freezing for 72 hours or longer.
"A huge plume of cold air will start to invade us," Lewelling says, referring to the start of the work week, "And we're looking at a pretty significant snow event coming up Monday, starting off with freezing rain and going over to all snow.
"For the I-20 corridor, we're looking at three to five inches of snow, up to six inches in spots and then the temperatures take a nosedive."
Lewelling says that daytime highs early next week may not top the mid-twenties on Monday and single digit temps overnight Monday and into Tuesday.
Lewelling emphasizes the greatest chance for ice and freezing rain may the the I-20 line. "The Monday event, we're probably looking at a brief period of freezing rain turning to all snow South of (I-20) as you move south toward Alexandria, it's probably going to be an ice storm for them."
