Heavy rain across Texas and Louisiana is creating major issues in travel. Interstate 20 between Minden and Shreveport has been a nightmare for motorists thanks to major flooding around the Dorcheat Bayou area. Numerous water rescues have been taking place there.
A big rain event is coming to a large swath of Texas beginning today (Thursday) and continuing through Monday. A trough of low pressure will usher in a cool front which will act to squeeze a lot of much-needed rain across the Lone Star State.
