National Weather Service Shreveport LA 947 PM CDT Tue Oct 23 2018 .UPDATE... Showers are beginning to develop across Central Texas in response to an upper trough that is moving across the Rockies. Latest estimates have these showers reaching portions of Deep East Texas around sunrise Wednesday morning. Therefore, PoPs were trimmed back until until after 24/09z. Cloud cover is considerably thinner than last night. This is allowing temperatures to cool rather quickly. However, increasing clouds from the southwest as the showers approach should slow the rate of cooling later tonight. Therefore, low temperatures were lowered by a few degrees across much of the area for tonight. Updated text products have already been sent. CNNational Ag. Weather Outlook, International Ag.
