THE YEAR OF 2015 KICKED OFF WITH SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES
AND WELL ABOVE NORMAL RAINFALL IN SHREVEPORT.  THIS JANUARY NOW
RANKS AS THE 16TH WETTEST JANUARY ON RECORD.

THE ONLY HIGHLIGHT OF THIS JANUARY WORTH NOTING OCCURRED DURING THE
3RD WHEN A LINE OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS MOVED ACROSS SHREVEPORT AND
BOSSIER CITY DURING THE WEE HOURS OF THE MORNING.  WIND GUSTS TORE
OFF A PORTION OF THE EXTERIOR WALL OF THE DOLLARMANIA STORE ON EAST
BERT KOUNS DRIVE.  WIND GUSTS ALSO DAMAGED TREES AND POWER LINES
WITH THE INEVITABLE SCATTERED ELECTRICAL POWER OUTAGES IN THE WAKE
OF THE THUNDERSTORMS.

HEAVY RAINFALL IN THE WAKE OF THE SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS DURING
JANUARY 3RD BROKE A DAILY RAINFALL RECORD.  SHREVEPORT TALLIED 2.44
INCHES OF RAINFALL FOR JANUARY 3RD AND BROKE THE OLD DAILY RECORD OF
2.29 INCHES OF RAINFALL SET BACK DURING 1934.
