A QUITE UNEVENTFUL JANUARY OF 2016 IN SHREVEPORT AND BOSSIER CITY
COMMENCED THE NEW YEAR OF 2016.  THANKFULLY SHREVEPORT DID NOT
OBSERVE ANY SEVERE WEATHER...WINTRY WEATHER...OR FLASH FLOODING.  WE
ALSO DID NOT RECORD ANY RECORD TEMPERATURES OR RAINFALL.

THE MONTH`S ONLY HIGHLIGHT OCCURRED DURING NEW YEARS WEEK AS THE RED
RIVER ROSE ABOVE FLOOD STAGE FOR THE THIRD TIME SINCE JUNE OF 2015.
THE RED RIVER CRESTED AT 31.55 FEET DURING THE LATE EVENING OF
JANUARY 2ND.  THIS RISE WAS DUE TO HEAVY RAINFALL FROM THE HISTORIC
POST CHRISTMAS WINTER STORM OF 2015 THAT DUMPED VERY HEAVY RAINFALL
IN THE RED RIVER BASIN BELOW LAKE TEXOMA.
