The National Weather Service has posted a winter weather advisory for Red River Parish along with most of northwest Louisiana. Light to moderate snow is expected in our area beginning this evening. The winter weather advisory is effective beginning at 3:00 am and lasting through 6:00 pm Tuesday.
The Red River Parish School Board cancelled school for Tuesday due to expected wintery weather. The weather service cautions that up to an inch of snow could accumulate overnight and cause icy and slippery road conditions, especially on Tuesday morning. Superintendent Alison Hughes notified the Journal of the school closure about 3:45.
