AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SHREVEPORT LA
1000 PM CST MON FEB 8 2016

.DISCUSSION...
FORECAST IS RIGHT ON TRACK THIS LATE EVENING. OUR WINDS ARE
RUNNING 5-10 MPH AND MAY DO SO ALL NIGHT. AIR TEMPERATURES WILL
SLOWLY FALL AND BOTTOM OUT RIGHT AROUND DAYBREAK AS DEW POINTS
SLOWLY RISE OVERNIGHT. /24/

&&

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 609 PM CST MON FEB 8 2016/

UPDATE...
TO DROP LAKE WIND ADVISORY HEADLINE FROM THE ZONES.

DISCUSSION...
SUNSET WAS AT 5:55 P.M. AND WHILE IT MAY TAKE A HOUR OR SO TO
SLACK GUSTS EVERYWHERE...THE SUPER LOW DEW POINTS IN THE SINGLE
DIGITS WILL ALLOW TEMPERATURES TO PLUMMET QUICKLY FROM THE
AFTERNOON 50S. THIS WILL BUILD AN ENVELOPE UNDER A STRONG INVERSION
WHICH WILL DECOUPLE OUR SFC FLOW FROM THE LOW LEVEL WINDS OF 30KTS
ON OUR VAD AT 2KFT. AND AS GUSTS SLACK...SUSTAINED SPEEDS WILL
FOLLOW SUITE.

PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 512 PM CST MON FEB 8 2016/

AVIATION...
NORTHWEST GUSTS APPROACHING 30KTS AS LATE AS 23Z WILL QUICKLY
DECOUPLE AFTER 00Z THIS EVENING. EXPECT WINDS TO REMAIN NEAR 10KTS
OR SO OVERNIGHT BEFORE THEY INCREASE ONCE AGAIN ON TUESDAY AFTER
15Z OR SO WITH SPEEDS NEAR 12-18KTS WITH GUSTS IN THE 22-30KT
RANGE. AFTERNOON CU FIELD ACROSS IN THE VICINITY OF THE ELD/MLU
TERMINALS WILL CONTINUE TO QUICKLY DISSIPATE THROUGH THE EVENING.

OTHERWISE...EXPECT VFR CONDITIONS TO PREVAIL.

PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 212 PM CST MON FEB 8 2016/

DISCUSSION...
LAKE WIND ADVISORY WILL REMAIN IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM...AS WINDS ARE
NOT EXPECTED TO DIE DOWN UNTIL AROUND SUNSET.

NW FLOW ALOFT PERSISTS OVER OUR REGION THIS AFTERNOON...AS AN
AMPLIFIED UPPER TROF DOMINATES THE ERN HALF OF THE CONUS...AND AN
AMPLIFIED UPPER RIDGE DOMINATES THE WRN HALF. WITH DRY AIR IN
PLACE...TEMPS ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN VERY NEAR SEASONAL NORMALS
THROUGH TUESDAY.

JET STREAM TO BECOME LESS AMPLIFIED AS WE MOVE INTO MIDWEEK...AND
ALTHOUGH WE WILL REMAIN UNDER NW FLOW ALOFT...LOW PRESSURE IN THE
SRN PLAINS WILL ALLOW FOR SLY WINDS TO RETURN TO THE REGION. THIS
WILL AID OUR TEMPS IN SOARING WELL ABOVE NORMAL FOR THE LATTER
HALF OF THE WORK WEEK. HOWEVER...A DRY BACK-DOOR COLD FRONT WILL
MOVE ACROSS THE REGION FRIDAY...AND COOL US BACK DOWN TO NEAR
NORMAL FOR THE WEEKEND. /12/
