I live in Austin TX, had to come out to Atlanta a few days ago. I have to leave back for Austin Saturday night / Sunday Morning. I estimate to enter Lousiana around 12pm on Sunday afternoon via I-20, maybe alittle earlier. It looks like I'm going to run smack into it. Should I avoid this at all cost or should I be okay? I absolutely must get back to Austin for Monday so leaving later isnt an option and I cant leave earlier because I'm not ready yet.

Would it be smarter to just go up to Arkansas via I-22 in Birmingham and cut across I-40 and come down I-30 through Arkansas to DFW?

it will be like going through a severe thunderstorm but at that point you could do it no problem. watch for flooding though.

OP, you might be off better traveling on I-40 through Tennessee, then heading down to Arkansas, and into Texas.

Yeah thats what I did. I left Bowling Green KY earlier than I intended to at 7am Saturday, got to Atlanta at Noon, ran errunds in Atlanta until 3:30pm then started out west, was Hauling all the way to B-Ham, got off and took I-22 to Memphis the very edge of the storm was on me all the way through Alabama and parts of Mississippi with scattered showers here and there, when I got to Memphis I saw the last of the sun and sunset... immediately cut west on I-40 to Little Rock and then took I-30 and headed the storm off by the time I reached Texas. I got to Austin at about 7am on this Sunday morning. The drive to Austin from DFW was pleasant but otherwise that was a long trip non stop outrunning a Hurricane.
