Storm 1 - Southern split from a single storm over northern Caddo and Bossier parishes.  The southern storm became supercellular and was tornado warned.  The storm initially moved to the ESE, then paralleled Interstate 20 east of Arcadia.  The storm dissipated rapidly in western Ouachita parish where storm number two (below) formed to its north.


Storm 2 - Formed to the north of dissipating Storm 1.  This storm rapidly intensified justifying a tornado warning.  It produced hail to baseballs over northern sections of the Lakeshore community.


Storm 3 - Formed over south-central Arkansas.  It was also tornado warned and moved into northeast Louisiana across Morehouse parish.  This storm trekked over West Carroll and East Carroll parishes before decreasing in intensity prior to crossing into Mississppi.
