Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southwest Arkansas...
Northwest Louisiana...East Texas...and Extreme Southeast Oklahoma
National Weather Service Shreveport LA
608 AM CDT Thu Jul 27 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Upper level ridge of high pressure that has helped with the hot
weather of recent will hold for another day and the heat and humid
conditions will result in afternoon heat indices around 105 and
slightly higher through early this evening. A series of upper
level disturbances moving through the Northeast periphery of the
ridge will amplify a trough of low pressure across the Eastern
sections of the country, and help drive a cold front, now across
the Pan Handles of Texas and Oklahoma and into the Plains of
Southeast Kansas, into the Four State Region Friday and Saturday.
Showers and thunderstorms will be on the increase as well as
thicker cloud cover resulting in cooler temperatures and wetting
rainfall for the end of the work week and into the weekend. Given
the rich moisture that will be available, locally heavy rainfall
will be possible with convection that develops as well as gusty
winds with storms as they dissipate and re-generate. The dry
and cool overnight and daytime temperatures will last into the
first half of next week with rain chances returning near mid week.
