Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Shreveport LA
245 PM CDT Sat Sep 16 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Fairly widespread cumulus field across much of the ArkLaTex this
afternoon with temperatures currently in the upper 80s to around
90 in most locations. Winds remain light and variable due to a
weak pressure gradient and surface boundary across the region.
A cluster of thunderstorms across south-central and southeast
Louisiana to surge north allowing for isolated convection mainly
across portions of northeast Louisiana late this afternoon.
Convection is expected to quickly diminish by the early evening
hours.

Upper-level ridge to persist through the remainder of the weekend
into early next week allowing for a mainly dry forecast through
Monday. Can`t rule out the possibility of isolated to widely
scattered afternoon thunderstorms. High temperatures to average in
the lower 90s through Monday.

Upper-level ridge to begin to weaken on Tuesday allowing for zonal
flow across the region through midweek with scattered showers and
thunderstorms possible on Tuesday and Wednesday. Afternoon high
temperatures to persist in the lower 90s.

Increased cloud-cover due to southwest flow of moisture from the
Pacific ocean to limit high temperatures to around 90 on Thursday
and Friday with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms each
day. /05/
