Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southwest Arkansas...
Northwest Louisiana...East Texas...and Extreme Southeast Oklahoma
National Weather Service Shreveport LA
659 AM CDT Wed Mar 29 2017

.DISCUSSION...
A line of thunderstorms will move across much of the area before
dissipating later this morning. Thunderstorms are expected to
redevelop and re-intensify by mid afternoon mainly east of a line
from Jacksonville, TX, to De Queen, AR. Some storms may be severe
at times. Southerly winds will be gusting near or above 25 mph at
times today. Rain chances will linger into early Thursday. Winds
will become westerly after the front passes early Thursday
morning. This will bring drier air into the region, and afternoon
minimum relative humidity values will likely drop to between 35
and 50 percent on Thursday and to between 35 and 45 percent on
Friday.
