Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Shreveport LA
440 PM CDT FRI JUN 24 2016

.DISCUSSION...
The Four State Region will remain under the influence of high
pressure on the surface and aloft resulting in hot temperatures
and small chances for rain into the late weekend. Most of the rain
chances will be in the late afternoon and into the early evening
with the upper ridge retrograding from the coastal sections of
the eastern Gulf of Mexico over the forecast area on Sunday and
into the Four Corners area on Monday. A mid conus trough will be
moving into the Northern periphery of the ridge allowing the upper
pattern to transition into a northwest flow pattern with a surface
high pressure system to build across the Eastern U.S. pushing a
cold front into the forecast area. This boundary will move to near
the interstate 20 corridor where it becomes nearly stationary and
shifts back North and South providing a focus for elevated showers
and thunderstorms through the week. The upper trough will remain
over the Eastern parts of the country while the ridge aloft
remains over the West. Additional short waves moving around the
upper ridge and back side of the upper trough will produce
bands of showers and thunderstorms. The cloud cover and rainfall
will allow the temperatures to cool especially over the North and
East. /06/
