Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southwest Arkansas...
Northwest Louisiana...East Texas...and Extreme Southeast Oklahoma
National Weather Service Shreveport LA
717 AM CDT Fri Mar 24 2017

.DISCUSSION...
An active weather day lies ahead with southerly winds ramping up
ahead of cold front shifting across the Southern Plains today. A
line of showers and thunderstorms will develop and intensify as
the front shifts eastward into our region. Some of these storms
may be severe with damaging wind gusts as a primary threat. Rain
amounts may total 1-2 inches across our northern fire districts
with lighter amounts farther south. The front will shift east of
the region overnight through Saturday morning with showers and
thunderstorms gradually ending from west to east. Drier weather is
expected through the rest of the weekend with warm southerly flow
returning on Sunday.
