Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southwest Arkansas...

National Weather Service Shreveport LA

.DISCUSSION...
The upper level ridge of high pressure that has dominated the
weather across the Four State Region has weakened as an upper
level low/trough of low pressure drifted West across the
Gulf Coast of Louisiana and the Upper Texas Coast under the system.
Meanwhile other disturbances around the North and Northeast portions
of the ridge and down the back side of a broad upper level trough
of low pressure over the upper mid west and into the Ohio Valley
has squeezed the ridge. The result will limit the daytime heating
with more cloud cover and scattered showers and thunderstorms, which
will also limit the afternoon heat indices lower than over the past
few days. This pattern will continue into the first part of the
work week, and then the upper ridge of high pressure will start to
expand across the plains and back into the area ramping back up the
heat and heat indices back to near advisory levels with a limit
on convection. Daytime temperatures will warm into the low to mid
nineties with humid nights and then for later in the week reading
are expected to climb back into the middle and upper nineties with
the century mark possible for late week.
