Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Shreveport LA
1138 PM CST Fri Jan 19 2018

.AVIATION...
Prevailing MVFR ceilings across all our but our TXK/ELD and MLU
terminals and those should go MVFR over the next few hours. MOS
supports ceilings going down to IFR categories towards sunrise if
not soon thereafter and have followed suit with the 06z TAF
package. Cannot rule out some patchy drizzle developing during the
day Sat which would reduce VSBYS to the 3-5SM range as well.

South to southeast winds tonight near 10 mph across NE TX to near
calm across our eastern terminals will become southerly on
Saturday near 10-15kts with some higher gusts possible mainly
across our NE TX terminal locations.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 933 PM CST Fri Jan 19 2018/

DISCUSSION...
Upper low near Houston with much off shore weather wise. A few
showers are just to our South and will pass to the south of
Toledo Bend dam by midnight. Clouds are wide spread and lowering
over Deep East Texas. As this happens some light showers or maybe
drizzle will crop up here and there with very light amounts if
any. Going forecast looks to be on track with guidance looking at
some light fog perhaps down toward Lufkin near daybreak.
Otherwise, spreads are large for most of us with the slight chance
wording still expected overnight.
