Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Shreveport LA
1033 PM CDT Wed Apr 25 2018

.AVIATION...
Still dealing with some patchy light rain and scattered showers
across portions of SC AR and N LA attm but by the 06z TAF
issuance, the only remaining terminal with the chance of seeing a
few more hours of this precipitation will be the MLU terminal.
Remaining terminals will be dealing with MVFR ceilings and cannot
rule our a few hours of IFR ceilings as well before we see the
drier air currently across NC TX begin pushing into our NE TX
terminals towards daybreak if not sooner. Remaining airports
should see improving ceilings Thu morning with any remaining
ceilings becoming VFR variety during the late morning into the
afternoon hours.

NW winds near 10kts or so tonight will remain near 10kts during
the day Thursday.
