Rainfall is Moving Out

The National Weather Service office at Shreveport said Tuesday the rain will end.  The next significant rainfall forecast is for Sunday.

The last organized cluster of thunderstorms should exit East Texas Tuesday. This area is moving at a decent speed, which will help keep the rainfall totals down. Any rain will generate runoff, and will make its way into area rivers.

Dry weather is expected for the remainder of the week. Lake operators/owners will take the opportunity to coordinate their releases and all official West Gulf RFC river forecasts will include the latest guidance from our reservoir partners.
