Hydrologic Outlook
National Weather Service Shreveport LA
1126 AM CDT Sat Apr 20 2024

...Heavy Rainfall Expected Across the Four State Region Through
Sunday Morning...

An upper level disturbance will continue moving towards the Four
State Region through tonight, resulting in periods of showers
with embedded thunderstorms across the entire region. This
rainfall will continue increasing in coverage and intensity
through tonight as well. Look for additional rainfall amounts
near one to three inches with isolated higher amounts possible.
The rainfall should quickly exit the Four State Region from west
to east during the day Sunday.

While rainfall rates will likely not be excessive enough to
result in widespread flash flooding, poor drainage and flood prone
areas will be susceptible to flooding. The greater impacts will
likely come from already swollen bayous, lakes and rivers which
remain high from previous rainfall. This forecast rainfall will
likely result in either a slow down to recent falling trends or
additional rises on most all area waterways that will continue
into next week.
