Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southwest Arkansas...
Northwest Louisiana...East Texas...and Extreme Southeast Oklahoma
National Weather Service Shreveport LA
354 PM CDT Wed Aug 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will remain possible mainly this
evening over portions of East Texas and Northcentral Louisiana near a
weak surface front, with brief heavy rainfall possible. This frontal
boundary will continue to drift south out of the area this evening,
with slightly cooler and drier air gradually beginning to backdoor
south. Min RH`s Thursday will range from 50-60%, with the lowest RH`s
expected to be over the Southeast Oklahoma and Southwest Arkansas
districts. Additional scattered showers and thunderstorms may develop
across East Texas and North Louisiana south of I-20 Thursday afternoon
as the front becomes stationary. Afterwards, the weather focus will be
on what is now Tropical Depression Harvey in the southwest Gulf of
Mexico. This tropical system is expected to continue drifting northwest
towards the middle and lower Texas coast, with the outer influences
from this storm possibly beginning to influence portions of North
Louisiana and East Texas Friday through Sunday. The heavier rain though
may await until the early to possibly mid week timeframe as Harvey
meanders across South and Southeast Texas this weekend before possibly
drifting along or just offshore and towards the South Louisiana coast.
