SHORT TERM. /Tonight through Saturday Night/
The axis of a broad upper trough is moving across the Mississippi River Valley. Another shortwave trough currently over Western Nebraska will dive southeast into Arkansas after midnight tonight. A weak surface trough will also move across the area this evening. These features will bring another round of low stratus and patchy fog to much of the area tonight/Saturday morning. I can't rule out the possibility of some dense fog, but westerly winds are usually not favorable for dense fog. However, wind speeds will be so light that dry air advection may not be much of a factor. The increased cloud cover should keep temperatures above freezing areawide tonight. While the low clouds will gradually lift and scatter during the day Saturday, high level cirrus clouds will increase across the region ahead of the next large upper trough moving onto the West Coast. Overall, conditions should remain relatively benign through the end of the short-term period. No precipitation is anticipated.
LONG TERM. /Sunday through Thursday Night/
Clouds to increase areawide on Sunday as upper-flow become southwest ahead of a broad upper-trough. Showers and isolated thunderstorms to increase in coverage from the west overnight as upper-trough and a cold front translate east across the region.
A few strong thunderstorms possible by daybreak Monday morning mainly across northeast Texas, southeast Oklahoma, and southwest Arkansas. Storm intensity remains uncertain due to a number of factors including limited moisture recovery as well as lack of daytime heating. However, despite these limitations, a few supercells producing marginal hail, strong wind gusts, and an isolated tornado may be possible early Monday morning.
Marginal risk of severe weather across the I-30 corridor on Sunday night will shift south and east on Monday with the cold front. Convection is forecast to exit the region on Monday afternoon with surface and upper-ridge building in its wake.
Dry conditions to prevail through the remainder of the long term forecast period. Temperatures ahead of the front early in the work week to range from highs in the mid 60s to mid 70s to lows in the 50s. Behind the front, temperatures to fall into the 50s for highs with near freezing lows. /05/
PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 1216 PM CST Fri Dec 13 2019/
AVIATION . For the 13/18z TAFs, low stratus and patchy fog persist across North Central Louisiana, including MVFR and IFR ceilings. The clouds should gradually lift and scattered through the remainder of the daytime hours with all terminals returning to the VFR range. However, more low clouds will likely develop after 14/09z leading to more MVFR/IFR flight conditions at most sites, with the possible exception of KTYR, KGGG, and KLFK. A slow improvement is expected late in the period after sunrise. Otherwise, southerly winds are expected initially before becoming northwesterly after 14/00z.

I do not sell or share any user data or anything else for that matter. I do not keep site logs longer than I need to to keep bad actors off the site. Basically, I delete them after looking at them. If you are subject to CCPA, Google ads on this site will not be based on your past behavior so you will likely not see an ad for a lawn mower just because you looked for one at a big box website. I do not believe this site is subject to CCPA but I am doing what I can to follow the guidelines anyway.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
