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

.DISCUSSION...
A cooler and drier airmass will briefly hang around today before
southerly winds begin to return across our area fire districts.
This will allow Gulf moisture to return on Friday and through the
weekend ahead of the next major weather system. This system will
bring widespread showers and thunderstorms from Saturday through
Sunday as a slow moving cold front advances across the region.
Rainfall amounts of 1-3 inches will be common with higher amounts
across our southeast Oklahoma and southwest Arkansas districts.
Minimum relative humidity values will jump markedly after today
with readings from 35-45 percent this afternoon before return
southerly flow begins to increase Gulf moisture into the weekend.
