Looks like about 2.25″ of rain today on Lake Bistineau (across the parish line in Webster) is the highest reported rainfall near Bossier, as of 5 p.m Wednesday.
Haughton weather stations are reporting 1.5-1.75″ of rain today. North Bossier is reporting a little over one inch so far. South Bossier is likely to have received over 2″ of rain today, but there are no weather stations reporting in that area this afternoon.
South of us, it’s another story. Natchitoches, DeSoto and Sabine parishes are taking on a good bit of water with school and business closings increasing.
“The center of Harvey should move through southwestern and central Louisiana tonight, then move through northeastern Louisiana and northwestern Mississippi Thursday and Thursday night,” the National Weather Service said in a statement issued late this afternoon.
The latest NWS update placed the center of circulation very near DeRidder, Louisiana, with winds continuing to subside.
A flash flood watch is still in effect through 7 p.m. tomorrow, but the NWS says that watch could be cancelled earlier, depending on conditions.
