AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SHREVEPORT LA
358 PM CDT SAT APR 19 2014

.DISCUSSION...
PRETTY GOOD LIFTING CU FIELD AROUND 6KFT NOW WITH A FEW SPOTS
MOSTLY CLOUDY EVEN WITH DEEPENING SOUTHEAST FLOW. THE CIRRUS IS
THICKER JUST BACK TO OUR WEST AND WILL MOVE IN THIS EVENING AS
THE CU FIELD TAKES AN EVENING BREAK. AIR TEMPERATURES ARE MOSTLY
IN THE MID TO UPPER 70S WHICH WORKS OUT FAIRLY WELL FOR THE GOING
FORECAST. FOUR STATE AREA RADARS ARE ALL QUIET WITH SOME ECHOES
WEST OF DFW AT THIS TIME.

IT WILL BE A QUIET NIGHT AND NEAR REPEAT PERFORMANCE FOR EASTER
SUNDAY ALTHOUGH THE ECHOS WILL BE A LOT CLOSER TO OUR NW CORNER.
WE WILL BE EDGING OUR OVERNIGHT LOWS MUCH CLOSER TO AVERAGE FOR
TONIGHT AND AGAIN HIGHS TOMORROW IN THE LOW 80S FOR MANY WHICH IS
A BIT ABOVE AVERAGE.

THE WATER VAPOR SHOWS THE UPPER LOW OVER AZ/NM/MEX AND IS SLOWLY
WORKING EASTWARD. THE MAIN TROUGH WILL ARRIVE WITH THE GREATEST
LIFT FOR OUR AREA ALONG THE COLD FRONT MONDAY NIGHT. UNTIL
THEN...WE WILL SEE A FEW EMBEDDED SHORT WAVES EDGE THE CHANCE FOR
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS INTO OUR AREA BY THIS TIME ON SUNDAY AND
PROGRESSIVELY SO INTO MONDAY WITH HEATING COVERAGE LOOKS NEARLY
AREA WIDE MONDAY AFTERNOON...BUT STILL PERHAPS MAINLY ALONG THE
FRONT OVERNIGHT MAY BE BETTER.

WPC QPF IS IN AGREEMENT AND HAS BEEN LOADED INTO THE NEXT FEW
DAYS. ALSO...TO NOTE THE LOW LEVELS WINDS WILL BE RATHER SLOW
COMPARED TO WHAT WE HAVE BEEN USED TO LATELY AND MAY GIVE RISE TO
SLOWER MOVING THUNDERSTORMS. SO IN A TRADE OFF IN THE TIMING...THE
SEVERE THREAT MAY BE LESSENED WITH OUR LOSS OF HEATING BY MONDAY
NIGHT...BUT THE CONTINUED SLOW MOVEMENT OF THE UPPER TROUGH COULD
GIVE RISE TO SOME LOCALIZED FLOODING THAT WILL BEAR WATCHING. /24/
