Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southwest Arkansas...
Northwest Louisiana...East Texas...and Extreme Southeast Oklahoma
National Weather Service Shreveport LA
414 AM CDT Wed Aug 17 2022

.DISCUSSION...

Rain chances will be on the increase from north to south today.
But, ahead of the rain, hot conditions will continue across the
region with afternoon Mixing Heights climbing above 5000 ft in
districts along and south of the Interstate 30 corridor. RH values
will remain in the 30 to 40 percent range across most of East
Texas and adjacent Western Louisiana. There is a risk for damaging
downburst winds from isolated strong to severe thunderstorms this
afternoon, which could cause existing wildfires to rapidly spread.
The good news is that widespread rain is expected to move in and
continue through Thursday, as a frontal boundary moves through the
region. Beyond this, rain chances will remain across portions of
the region through the upcoming weekend, along with slightly
cooler temperatures.
