City of Ruston: Hazardous Weather Outlook

The City of Ruston is expecting bad weather on Monday, Feb. 15. According to the National Weather Service there will be snow and ice. Stay safe and stay off the roads if you can on Monday.

For utility emergencies call 255-1316.

DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Friday through Wednesday…

Patches of light freezing rain and freezing drizzle should become
all rain by midday tomorrow, but slick spots on elevated bridges
and overpasses cannot be ruled out in the morning until that time.

Light freezing rain and freezing drizzle will again be possible
across much of Northwest and Northern Louisiana and much of East
Texas south of a line from Tyler to Marshall late Friday night
through Saturday morning. Accumulations should remain very light,
most likely only a trace. However, this may still be enough to
produce a very thin glaze of ice on exposed surfaces.

A much more significant winter storm is expected as snow moves
back into areas along and north of Interstate 30 Sunday afternoon.
A mix of sleet and snow, and some freezing rain, is expected
farther southeast. As even colder air arrives on Monday, a gradual
transition to all snow will occur. There is still a great deal of
uncertainty regarding accumulations. However, snowfall
accumulations of at least 3 to 6 inches are possible northwest of
a line from Jacksonville TX, to Shreveport, to Farmerville LA, and
1 to 3 inches of snow and some ice accumulations are expected
farther to the southeast.

Yet another round of a potentially significant wintry mix of rain,
freezing rain, sleet, and snow is expected Wednesday.

In addition, extremely cold weather is expected Sunday through
Wednesday. The coldest temperatures are expected Monday night and
Tuesday morning as overnight lows fall into the single digits for
most locations north of Interstate 20 and in the teens elsewhere.
