Strong to severe thunderstorms will be developing early this afternoon with the severe weather threat further intensifying by mid to late afternoon through this evening, according to the National Weather Service in Shreveport.

Much of the region is either in a Moderate Risk or an Enhanced Risk during this time frame. All modes of severe weather will be possible, including the threat of potentially strong and long track tornadoes.

Large hail and damaging winds are also significant threats as well with the possibility of discrete super cells initially during the afternoon with very large hail, eventually evolving into a linear complex of storms with the primary threat of damaging winds later this evening and overnight.
