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

.DISCUSSION...
A cold front will move across the area from northwest to southeast
today. By 6 PM, the front should be through all areas except
portions of Louisiana Districts 3 and 5. Mostly cloudy skies are
expected across much of the area ahead of the front. South winds
will become northwesterly after the frontal passage, and drier air
will work into the area resulting in clearing skies. The dry air
could lead to afternoon minimum relative humidity values falling
below 35 percent across much of East Texas, Southeast Oklahoma,
and portions of Southwest Arkansas north of Interstate 30 today.
The dry airmass will spread across the entire area for Saturday,
and minimum relative humidity values should fall between 20 and 25
percent areawide. Moisture levels will increase on Sunday as the
next in a series of upper troughs approach. Rain chances should
begin to return by Sunday afternoon.
