Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southwest Arkansas...
Northwest Louisiana...East Texas...and Extreme Southeast Oklahoma
National Weather Service Shreveport LA
613 AM CST Fri Jan 19 2018

.DISCUSSION...
The surface high pressure system was centered over the
Southeast States this morning with the cold temperatures
underneath. The Four State Region will be on the back side
of this system which will continue to return warmer
Southerly winds on the surface. Just above the surface
the winds will be more Southwest returning moisture that
will be trapped below the inversion and provide cloudy
skies and possible light rain or drizzle and patchy fog
overnight and into Saturday. Temperatures will continue
to warm through the rest of the weekend and an approaching
upper trough will increase high level moisture. Rain chances
will increase by the late half of the weekend with showers
and thunderstorms becoming likely and more widespread.
Rainfall amounts will be heavy at times. Our next cold front
will move through on Monday but temperatures will not be
as cold during the rest of the next week.
