WEATHERWISE DURING JANUARY OF 2018 IN SHREVEPORT AND BOSSIER CITY,
LOUISIANA, WE RECORDED BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND RAINFALL.  THIS
JANUARY WILL BE REMEMBERED FOR AN ARCTIC AIRMASS INVASION DURING
JANUARY 16TH AS UPWARDS OF THREE INCHES OF SNOW FELL DURING THE WEE
HOURS OF THAT MORNING.  VERY COLD AIR SETTLED IN DURING THE 17TH AND
18TH AND PRODUCED THE COLDEST TEMPERATURES SINCE THOSE OF JANUARY OF
1996 IN SHREVEPORT.

OTHERWISE, SHREVEPORT DID NOT BREAK OR TIE ANY RECORDS THIS JANUARY.

RANKS AS THE COOLEST JANUARY SINCE THAT OF 2014 THAT ALSO AVERAGED
43.5 DEGREES.  ALSO THIS JANUARY DID NOT EVEN RANK IN THE TOP TWENTY
COOLEST JANUARYS ON RECORD.  CONCERNING PRECIPITATION, THIS JANUARY
RANKS AS THE SIXTEENTH DRIEST AND THE DRIEST SINCE 2014 THAT ONLY
