Published Jan. 19, 2022

Ouachita and surrounding parishes are under a Severe Thunderstorm Watch until 7 p.m. Wednesday, issued by the National Weather Service Shreveport. A watch means conditions are favorable for severe weather. 



 A cold front passing through the state brings a slight risk for damaging winds, large hail, and isolated tornadoes from late Wednesday afternoon into the early hours of Thursday morning.  


Thursday's high is forecast at 38° with wind chills in the teens in the morning and afternoon. The low Thursday night into Friday will be 23° with wind chills again in the teens. 


Friday's high will be 40°; the wind chills will be in the low 20°s. 


No wintry mix is predicted at this time. ULM officials are closely monitoring the developing weather and will notify the campus if conditions change.  


ULM will issue statements on the ULM Safe app (download at  App Store and Google Play), campuswide email, ulm.eduULM Facebook, Twitter @ulm_official, and Instagram @ulmonroe. Stay informed at 90.3 KEDMFacebook/National Weather Service Shreveport, and Twitter @NWSShreveport.    


For emergencies on campus, use the ULM Safe app to contact the University Police Department or call 318-342-5350, or dial 911.
