.DISCUSSION...
Widely scattered showers and thunderstorms have developed across SW
AR, Central and North Central Louisiana this afternoon.These showers
will persist through the reminder of the 28/18Z TAF package and
should diminish during the overnight hours. For the 28/18Z TAFS
MVFR/VFR conditions will prevail through most of the TAF period with
CU ranging from 5KFT TO 7KFT developing during the afternoon.
Terminal sites that receive rain could see vsbys drop to 3SM to 4SM
with some of the stronger showers and thunderstorms otherwise vsbys

DISCUSSION...
Overnight/early morning convection across srn AR/n LA continues to
diminish. However, diurnal convection has shown some increase over
the last hour or so, and this should be enhanced by the upper
level low over ern LA today. Have made some minor adjustments to
cloud cover and PoPs to better represent current conditions/trends,
but these should have little impact in the text products overall.
Temps look to be on track, especially when cloud cover/convective
coverage are taken into account, so will not be making any changes
there. /12/
