The National Weather Service in Shreveport has issued a freeze warning until 9 a.m. Monday morning for the Ark-La-Tex.
According to the National Weather Service, colder air will continue to spill south into the region through monday morning with northwest winds expected to remain gusty through late this afternoon. Temperatures in the mid to upper 50s later today are expected to fall rapidly after sunset with calm winds as high pressure builds directly overhead at the surface. This combination will allow temperatures to fall to or below freezing later tonight through mid morning monday before climbing back above freezing shortly after daybreak.
Strong and gusty winds will also produce a rough chop on area lakes which may be hazardous to recreational boaters. In addition trees with softened roots in recently flooded areas may topple in gusty winds. Subfreezing temperatures could kill sensitive plants and other vegetation.
