Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Shreveport LA
313 PM CDT Sun Aug 20 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Shwrs/tstms have developed across portions of N LA/E TX. The HRRR
model data seems to be initializing very well, and the latest run
indicates that convection will diminish around 00Z. Have left PoPs
out of the overnight forecast as a result.

Monday will be another hot day, although most likely not as warm
as today. Some areas very close to Heat Advisory criteria, but
have decided /in collaboration with surrounding offices/ to hold
off on issuance and defer to the midnight shift. There appears at
least a decent shot that the solar eclipse will be visible from
most areas, as far as cloud cover is concerned. Areas that will be
most prone to obstruction due to cloud cover will be along and
north of I-30. Convection may also be an issue for some, as we
will likely see some isold to possibly sct development around
midday through sunset.

Similar conditions are expected for Tuesday, but Wednesday will
bring some changes. Upper ridge will build back in over the
Rockies, allowing the upper trof over the nern CONUS to deepen as
a disturbance rounds the base and sweeps a cold front into our
region. Good chances for shwrs/tstms will accompany the front as
it slowly drifts swd through Friday. Front will stall s of our
area and begin to move back nwd during next weekend, keeping our
fcst wet through the end of the pd. Increased coverage of
convection and cloud cover will most likely knock our temps back
down to below seasonal normals. /12/
