Potential for strong to severe storms to develop late in the day on Friday, as a cold front barrels towards the region. An 'enhanced' risk of severe weather encompasses an area north of I-30. The biggest threats will be large hail and damaging wind. The tornado threat is relatively low at this time, but an isolated tornado still cannot be ruled out.
Storms will begin to develop during the early evening hours and push through the region overnight. Models are not in total agreement on timing, so based on development, timing of these storms could shift over the next 24 hours.
Here's a breakdown of the latest FutureTrack to get an idea of when storms will move through the area:
8pm: Storms beginning to move into the northern most tier of the ArkLaTex. Greatest potential for severe storms to develop will be earlier in the evening.
10pm: Cold front sliding south through the region. Strong storms still possible at this time, as line slides through the I-30 corridor.
1am: Storms losing a bit of their punch as they enter the Shreveport-Bossier metro area.
4am: By this time severe threat has dwindled, but rain and a few storms will be possible.
10am: Storms will be cleared out of the region by mid-morning on Saturday. A much cooler and drier air mas will be moving in.
