Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southwest Arkansas...
Northwest Louisiana...East Texas...and Extreme Southeast Oklahoma
National Weather Service Shreveport LA
345 PM CDT Tue Apr 25 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Windy and warm for much of our Four State Area today with similar
expectations for tomorrow, but with more cloudiness. An
approaching weak cold front will keep the southerly flow going in
the morning veering to SW early and then W and eventually NW
behind the front around sunset Wednesday and overnight. These
Northerly winds will be brief and weak, shifting right back to SE
by Thursday morning. None the less a good chance for wetting rain
will accompany the boundary late tomorrow. The work week will end
dry and weekend begin as such, but more Thunderstorms will be
along during Sunday with our next system.
