National Weather Service Shreveport LA
255 PM CST Mon Feb 20 2017

.DISCUSSION...
A large area of rain will slowly move across the area during the remainder of
the day and through most of the overnight hours before coming to an end. Some locations
in northern Louisiana may see brief periods of heavy rainfall in thunderstorms. Skies
will remain cloudy throughout Tuesday before finally becoming partly sunny by Wednesday
as temperatures warm well into the 70s, and even around 80 at some locations on Thursday.
Afternoon relative humidities mainly between 40 and 50 percent can be expected on these two
days as well. South winds will increase to 10 to 15 mph by Thursday afternoon, with a cold
front bringing west to northwest winds back into the area on Friday and lower relative
humidities between 30 and 40 percent for Friday and Saturday. Rain chances may return
by late in the weekend.
