Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Shreveport LA
926 PM CST Fri Feb 28 2020

.UPDATE...

With winds near calm across our northern and eastern most zones to
go along with clear skies, temperatures have already fallen to
near forecast mins so for the above reasons, made the change to
lower temperatures overnight several degrees mainly across the
north and east. While the cirrus will be very thin overnight, did
bump up sky grids slightly. Other changes were minor involving
dewpoint grids to better mimic current and expected forecast
conditions through the overnight and predawn hours.

Otherwise, no additional changes were necessary this evening.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 507 PM CST Fri Feb 28 2020/

AVIATION...

Sfc ridge axis remains across SE TX into the NW Gulf of Mexico
with northwest winds on the NE of the axis across our airspace.
This evening, winds will become variable and will eventually
become south southwest with speeds generally less than 5-6kts
overnight. South southwest winds will prevail once again on
Saturday with a strengthening pressure gradient by late morning
through the afternoon. Look for sustained winds near 6-12kts with
a few higher gusts possible across our NE TX terminal locations.

Otherwise, VFR conditions will prevail with increasing high/thin
cirrus late tonight through the day Saturday across our airspace.
