National Weather Service Shreveport LA
1208 AM CDT FRI JUL 22 2016

.AVIATION...
For the 22/06Z TAFS...VFR conditions will prevail as strong upper
level ridge of high pressure remains dominant. Diurnal trends will
continue to favor isolated afternoon convection, mainly across our
eastern terminals in north Louisiana and south Arkansas. A weak
pressure gradient will allow for light and mostly variable winds
to prevail with a primary southerly component during the daytime
hours. Skies are gradually clearing tonight with some lingering
cirrus in a few spots, and a CU field will redevelop after 22/15Z
with additional cirrus on Friday afternoon with the onset of any
isolated convection. Any convection should diminish shortly after
sunset. /19/

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 953 PM CDT THU JUL 21 2016/

DISCUSSION...
Showers and a few thunderstorms continued to drift Southwest
across parts of North Louisiana and South Central Arkansas in wake
of an outflow boundary that has moved into Northwest Louisiana
and South Arkansas. Have included mention of the convection until
around 1 AM and currently think they will end around that time.
Have mad no other significant changes to the ongoing forecast.
