Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Shreveport LA
908 PM CDT Fri Oct 20 2017

.UPDATE...
A few changes are necessary this evening and this is a result in
the mid and high level cloud cover having temporarily moved almost
out of our region to our east. IR imagery this evening depicts
this best with all but our eastern most zones seeing very little
if any cloud cover attm. Finally beginning to see some low level
return across SE TX and this should rapidly spread north and east
as the night continues but until that time, have had to shave
temperatures some as fcst min temps were either near or actually
above 02z temps in a few locations. Did not make any change to
overnight slight chance pops but anything that falls will be
light but did remove mention of thunder for the remainder of the
night.

No other changes necessary tonight. Update out shortly...13.
