Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Shreveport LA
1122 PM CDT Mon Aug 21 2017

.AVIATION...
Just some thin cirrus noted south of our I-20 Corridor terminals
in Northern Louisiana late this evening. This is coming slowly
northward but thinning as it does so prevail some of this in the
06z terminal package. Cannot rule out some 5-6SM VSBY restrictions
an hour or two either side of sunrise Tuesday Morning. Otherwise
VFR conditions should prevail through the next 24 hours.

Cu field should grow quickly on Tuesday beyond the 14z timeframe
with some isolated convection possible beyond the 17z timeframe
but dissipating near or shortly after the 02z/24. Coverage does
not warrant a mention in this terminal package.

Wind speeds should be under 10kts during the daytime hours on
Tuesday outside of any convection with directions ranging from the
southeast to the southwest.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 1000 PM CDT Mon Aug 21 2017/

DISCUSSION...
Convection has now dissipated across our region with only a few
showers remaining to our south near Alexandria in central LA.
Clouds overnight will be limited to cirrus associated with the
easterly wave over the northern Gulf of Mexico, mainly affecting
parts of north LA. Otherwise, a few areas may also see patchy fog
toward daybreak but coverage/duration will be quite limited so no
mention has been included in the current gridded forecast. Update
will be out soon with new zone package to drop the possibility of
convection for the remainder of the overnight period.
