Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Shreveport LA 1054 PM CST Fri Feb 28 2020
No real changes to the 06z TAF package as VFR conditions will prevail through the next 24 hours. Light south winds will prevail across our western terminal locations overnight with a SSW wind prevailing at all terminal locations after sunrise Saturday Morning. A tightening pressure gradient will result in slightly stronger sustained winds across these same western terminal locations with speeds upwards of 10kts with a few gusts possible with sufficient mixing.
Otherwise, look for increasing cirrus overnight through the day tomorrow with some AC at or above 15kft increasing across our southwest terminal locations towards the tail end of the terminal period.
Any low cloud cover return should hold off until just after this terminal package's expiration time.
PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 926 PM CST Fri Feb 28 2020/
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.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
