An Extremely Wet Thanksgiving Is In Store

KTAL NBC 6 says “Our weather pattern will be bringing a chance of heavy rain later tonight into Thanksgiving day. The rain will have significant impacts on any outdoor cookouts and travel plans tomorrow.”

Expect rain on Thanksgiving and the day after Thanksgiving in the Shreveport and Bossier City areas.

The amount of rain we are expecting will make outdoor plans difficult. The best advice for anyone planning on roadway travel is to get to your destination as early as possible Thursday. The afternoon and evening rounds of rain could cause a few flooded roadways.

According to KTAL NBC 6:

Forecast models are in strong agreement that we will all see 1 to 2 inches of rain on Thanksgiving, with isolated amounts of 2 to 4 inches. The threat of severe weather is very low as temperatures will be on the cool side, in the 50s and low 60s.

Another round of rain is likely to move in the Shreveport area Friday afternoon through Saturday morning bringing another chance for accumulations over 1 inch. Rainfall accumulations today through Saturday could exceed 4 inches in some spots.
