Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southwest Arkansas...
Northwest Louisiana...East Texas...and Extreme Southeast Oklahoma
National Weather Service Shreveport LA
703 AM CDT Tue Mar 28 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Patchy fog should gradually dissipate by late morning. Winds will
become southeasterly between 10 and 15 mph by the afternoon. This
will allow moisture from the Gulf of Mexico to stream into the
region ahead of a strong cold front/dryline over the Southern
Plains. Afternoon minimum relative humidity values should remain
over 50 percent today and over 45 percent on Wednesday. Strong to
severe thunderstorms are expected across the area Wednesday as the
cold front approaches. Thunderstorm chances will linger into
Thursday until the cold front moves across the area. One to two
inches of rainfall will be possible from Wednesday morning through
Thursday evening.
