Tonight and Thursday: Continued warmer than normal through Thursday.
Mid afternoon surface analysis had a nearly stationary frontal boundary across our northeast Louisiana Parishes and extending northeast across our northeast zones. Local radars only showed mostly light showers along the boundary as the more vigorous convection earlier has shifted into Alabama. Additional shower development will remain possible through tonight but the stalled boundary will become diffuse by morning. Surface analysis also showed a ridge along the Gulf coast states from the east. This ridge will remain in place through Thursday and help a warm moist airmass spread back across the whole CWA This moist airmass will destabilize with daytime heating Thursday and there will be the development of isolated to scatted showers and thunderstorms but the potential for any severe storms looks to hold off until Thursday evening ahead of a cold front that will be approaching our western zones. Rain chances also look to mainly occur north of Highway 84 which looks to remain dry through the forecast period. /22/

Thursday night through next Wednesday...

By Thursday night into Friday, the CWA is progged to be wedged between a low pressure developing over the Plains and a high pressure building a ridge over the southeast region. This ridging pattern will increase moisture into the Lower Mississippi Valley, while the low pressure swings a shortwave across the valley. A boundary associated with this shortwave will increase instability overnight as we continue into Friday, bringing showers and some elevated thunderstorms across NE AR and northern MS on Thursday night. A "Marginal" Risk (1/5) for damaging winds and quarter size hail has been outlooked for Thursday night mostly north if I-20. The greatest chance for a severe storm looks to be in the Delta Region.
Confidence in this system is fairly low, but some small hail or gusty winds may be possible with any strong updrafts. By Friday, the front is expected to push through the region, bringing lower than normal temperatures for a brief period of time. Highs on Friday will range from the lower 70s in the northwest and upper 80s in the southeast, but will lower as the front moves south. By Saturday, moisture will build back into the region, while another weak shortwave looks to move into the Lower Mississippi Valley once again. Scattered to numerous (35-85%) showers and some thunderstorms are expected on Saturday and Sunday. Severe weather is not expected over the weekend at this time.

By Monday, the shortwave is expected to eject to the northeast and exit the CONUS near the coast of the Carolinas. NW flow will increase into the region, bringing a cooler, drier airmass into the CWA Temperatures on Monday will range from the upper 60s to middle 70s, but will quickly increase again into Tuesday and Wednesday, as temperatures climb into the lower to middle 80s once again. /AJ/
