Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Shreveport LA 653 AM CDT Wed Jul 15 2020
For the 15/12Z TAF period, some brief MVFR cigs will continue to advect northward through the late morning, mainly across our East Texas terminals and farther east at SHV as well. Otherwise, look for these low clouds to quickly lift/scatter out with a cu field around 4-5Kft later this afternoon. Also, look for extensive mid and high level clouds shifting southward across all terminals for much of the period. South winds will range from 5-10 kts early in the day, then increase slightly toward midday and this afternoon with some higher gusts near 15-20 kts possible across our western terminal sites.
PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 409 AM CDT Wed Jul 15 2020/
SHORT TERM . /Today through Thursday/
More extensive high level cloud cover is noted this morning which is acting to maintain very warm and muggy overnight temperatures, ranging from the upper 70s to lower 80s with little if any additional drop expected before sunrise. Some low stratus is also working northward into parts of East Texas this morning as well. These warm readings will provide a healthy head start on the climb back toward the mid to upper 90s this afternoon. Coupled with dew points remaining the 70s again today, we should continue to reach Heat Advisory criteria across the entire region so held serve with the current advisory for this afternoon. Otherwise, we should have another gentle southerly breeze again today to help offset the heat just ever so slightly. Expect overnight temperatures to only fall back into the mid to upper 70s once again while maintaining some nighttime cloud cover.
The upper level ridge will continue to dominate on Thursday as it begins to orient more NE into the Mid-South Region. This may open the door for at least some slight chances for convection over our SE zones on Thursday afternoon as the sea breeze shifts northward from the coast. Otherwise, look for a continued hot and dry forecast for much of the region with an extension of the current Heat Advisory looking quite likely.
LONG TERM . /Thursday Night through Tuesday Night/
Not much change on previous thinking for the extended period. For the remainder of the work week, the center of the aforementioned ridge will become centered across Western North Texas and adjacent SW Oklahoma. The southern and eastern periphery of the ridge will erode, as an easterly wave will develop within an inverted trough and move westward from the Louisiana Gulf Coast to the Texas Gulf Coast. Isolated to scattered convection along with some possible seabreeze activity will returning to portions of our region during afternoon peak heating hours on Friday with the best rain chances generally east of a line from Lufkin Texas to Shreveport to El Dorado Arkansas. By the weekend, the upper ridge will expand more into the region as the center of the ridge shifts will slide eastward into the Ozark and Mid South regions of the CONUS. This should result in mostly dry conditions with only slight rain chances remaining across our most southern zones of Deep East Texas and Central Louisiana. For the start of next week, the upper ridge will start to weaken and afternoon diurnal convection will return to portions of the region as additional disturbances move across the Texas/Louisiana Gulf Coast.
Hot and humid conditions will remain through the extended as low level southerly flow will continue to pump low level moisture into the region. Dewpoint temps will remain in the mid to upper 70s along with afternoon high temperatures in the mid to upper 90s. Heat Advisories and/or Excessive Heat Warnings will be probable as heat index values will top out near or above 105 degrees.

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.
