Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Shreveport LA
1144 PM CDT Sun Aug 20 2017

.AVIATION...
VFR conditions prevailing attm with only thin cirrus noted on IR
imagery across our terminal airspace. Cannot rule out some patchy
5-6SM BR vsby restrictions the closer we get to sunrise but any
vsby restrictions will be brief. Otherwise, expect descent cu
field to begin developing across our airspace between 14-16z,
continuing to build throughout the day. Cannot rule out some
isolated -shra/-tsra developing by afternoon but coverage does
not warrant a mention in this 06z package.

Look for light winds overnight with winds becoming southeast
mainly less than 10kts beyond 21/14z on Mon.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 938 PM CDT Sun Aug 20 2017/

DISCUSSION...
Updated forecast earlier this evening with cancellation of heat
advisory at 7 PM and added pops across our far northern zones
where daytime convection persisted into the early evening hours.
However, convection has all dissipated as of this mid evening
update and will allow the current forecast to continue on track
through the overnight hours. Any decision on an additional heat
advisory for Monday will be left to midnight shift with fresh
model data to consider. Otherwise, diminishing cirrus clouds this
evening should set us up for mostly clear skies on Monday morning
so our solar eclipse watchers should hopefully have good viewing
to start by late morning, but cumulus development later in the day
may obscure peak time viewing for the eclipse a little after 1 PM.
