National Weather Service Shreveport LA
1209 PM CST Tue Nov 19 2019

.AVIATION...

For the ArkLaTex terminals, a Chamber day everywhere with some
cirrus arriving late. W/NW winds 5-10KT will slack and veer to
N/NE overnight or calm and then prevail SE early and increasing to
5-15KT with gusts in TX esp. Climb attm winds are NW and
weakening. FLs are still NW 50-90KT. An approaching upper level
system will increase the S/SE winds all day with good moisture
transport for some shwrs/isold TS late tomorrow with approaching
fropa for a wet Friday. Beautiful weekend - early work week. /24/

&&

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 1040 AM CST Tue Nov 19 2019/

UPDATE...
Bumped highs to upper 70s along I-20 corridor of E TX W LA.

SHORT TERM.../Today/

Lots of sunshine and temps warming fast with the still dry air in
place. Our W/NW winds will veer to N and NE late and right back to
SE overnight. We are running in the upper 60s from Longview to
Shreveport, and on a day like today adding 10 at 10a is a good
likelihood for a final outcome. Especially with the low dew
points and slacking and veering wind late. No other changes except
to lower RH in the update process. /24/

PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 322 AM CST Tue Nov 19 2019/

SHORT TERM.../Today through Wednesday afternoon/
Upper-ridge to prevail through most of the short term forecast
period. Aside from thin high cirrus, mostly clear skies to prevail
across the region through tonight. Temperatures today to climb
into the mid 70s with lows tonight around 50. Light and variable
winds today to become southeast overnight as surface high
pressure shifts east. Southerly flow to increase on Wednesday as a
surface low deepens across the Texas panhandle. Increased
moisture advection to provide mostly cloudy skies areawide on
Wednesday. Showers possible across southeast Oklahoma and
northeast Texas late Wednesday afternoon ahead of a cold front.
Otherwise, afternoon high temperatures on Wednesday to climb into
the low to mid 70s. /05/

LONG TERM.../Wednesday Night through Tuesday/

A lead shortwave will eject out of a deep closed low centered near
srn NV Wednesday Night and rain chances will occur at least across
areas mainly north of I-30 as the upper ridge axis moves east of the
area. These rain chances may temporally abate for part of the day
Thursday, before returning with more significant rainfall
possible as the day progresses, although little if any rain
expected south of I-20 until Thursday Night. Dynamics will be
favorable for stg convection although this will be dependent upon
whether the prefrontal development occurs. A cold front caught up
in the deepening sw flow will begin to slowly move across the area
durg the day Friday with a tapering off of cold rain west to east
Friday Night.

Drier and cooler wx on tap for the weekend ahead, with best
radiative cooling on Sat Night, although overnight lows may hold
just above the frzg mark for much of the area. Moisture will return
as another longwave trough quickly digs further south than the
previous rain event. Too early to break down pops in this period
with low chances for time being beginning Monday Night./07/.
