SHREVEPORT, La. - The Storm Prediction Center has the southern ArkLaTex under a Marginal Risk of severe storms for late Tuesday. Hail and gusty winds are possible.
A storm system in Illinois late Monday evening is the potential culprit. A northerly jet stream is forecast to push the system close to our area over the next few days.
At the surface, the computer models push a back door or weak cold front into the ArkLaTex from the northeast. This boundary could trigger isolated to widely scattered storms south of I-20 late Tuesday.
Moisture to feed the storms should be limited. But, some heavier downpours in Toledo Bend can't be ruled out. Forecast rain amounts could be higher over southern sections as shown.
