Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Shreveport LA
157 PM CDT Mon Oct 18 2021

.SHORT TERM.../Tonight through Tuesday Night/

Upper ridge axis stretching from E TX up through the Great Lakes
region. Sfc high pressure retaining influence over our region
despite the center being displaced to the e. This pattern will
allow for temps to continue to moderate upward under mostly clear
skies and sly sfc winds.

Upper low currently over NV will continue ewd through Tuesday,
bringing a cold front into the Southern Plains. Rain chances
associated with the front/shortwave trof look to hold out until
later in the fcst. /12/

.LONG TERM.../Tuesday night through Sunday Night/

Cold front to continue approaching Wednesday, slowing as the upper
low over NE/SD takes a slightly newd trajectory as it encounters
the upper ridge. Warming ahead of the front will allow temps to
soar back up into the mid and upper 80s for some portions of the
region. Meanwhile, weak disturbance in the Gulf will bring some
chances for shwrs/tstms across our sern areas of N Central LA, but
these look to conclude with the loss of daytime heating Wednesday
evening.

Very limited moisture return ahead of this cold front and zonal
flow aloft as the upper low passes to our n will keep any rain
chances out of reach attm. However, upper ridging will amplify
over the wrn CONUS allowing for residual troughing to deepen
Thursday, with some rain chances possibly accompanying a weak
shortwave in weakly nwly flow aloft Friday into Saturday.

Swly flow aloft to begin Saturday, and weak, embedded disturbances
may bring some additional low-end rain chances for Sunday/Sunday
night. Temps during this timeframe will continue a few degrees
above normal, as no appreciable change in airmass is expected.
