SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Good morning, ArkLaTex! It is a soggy morning, the heaviest rain has moved out, but we will continue to see scattered showers, clouds, and drizzle throughout the day. Get ready for our first ‘cool and sunny’ weekend since the Spring. You have waited months to turn the air conditioning off, and you’ll get a chance to do that soon. 

Radar is estimating 8 to 12 inches of rain has fallen in about 24 hours along the I-30 corridor of northeast Texas into Arkansas where there will still be some high water on roads and road closures. The threat of any additional flooding has ended but it’s going to be an overcast, drizzly, and cooler morning with temperatures in the 60s and low 70s.
