For the first time in a while, Shreveport-Bossier faced actual winter weather conditions. Bitterly cold temps, snowfall, ice and sleet have all pounded the area. In fact, Shreveport is setting some winter records.

Tuesday's snowfall was record breaking. According to the National Weather Service, Shreveport officially received 1.80  inches of snow. While that may not sound like a lot, it did break a snowfall record set back in 1874!

It's also being reported that some areas like Haughton saw closer to 3 inches of snow.

So stay bundled up, keep warm and try to avoid the roadways if you can.
