Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southwest Arkansas...
Northwest Louisiana...East Texas...and Extreme Southeast Oklahoma
National Weather Service Shreveport LA
301 PM CDT Mon Apr 23 2018

.DISCUSSION...
Clouds are expected to begin to clear out this evening, allowing
for abundant sunshine Tuesday. This will help our RH values dip in
to the 35 to 45 percent range. Our next chance at wetting rains
will come in late Wednesday into Thursday, as a cold front moves
through the districts. Another cold front is forecast for Friday,
which may bring a few scattered showers, but widespread wetting
rains are not expected. Dry conditions thereafter are expected to
last through the weekend.
