Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southwest Arkansas...
Northwest Louisiana...East Texas...and Extreme Southeast Oklahoma
National Weather Service Shreveport LA
530 AM CDT Sun Aug 25 2019

.DISCUSSION...
Scattered showers and thunderstorms are again expected today over
portions of extreme East Texas, much of North Louisiana, Southwest
Arkansas, and Southeast Oklahoma, ahead of an upper level disturbance
that will progress southeast through the region. Brief heavy rainfall
and locally gusty winds will be possible in/near the stronger
storms, before they diminish by or shortly after sunset. Hotter and
drier conditions are expected Monday as an upper level ridge of
high pressure builds back east into the area, although isolated
afternoon showers and thunderstorms will still be possible over
the eastern sections of Northcentral Louisiana. Afternoon
temperatures Monday will climb back into the mid and upper 90s
over much of East Texas, Southeast Oklahoma, portions of Southwest
Arkansas and Western Louisiana, with limited mixing resulting
in heat indices near or in excess of 105 degrees. An upper level
disturbance will develop and shift southeast across Eastern Oklahoma
and Western Arkansas late Monday night, with showers and
thunderstorms spreading southeast into these areas, with their
remnants focusing additional shower and thunderstorm development
throughout Tuesday across much of the region except Lower East
Texas. These storms will reinforce a weak surface front south
into the area Tuesday, which will become stationary somewhere
over East Texas and North Louisiana late in the day. This front
will focus additional scattered showers and thunderstorms across
the area Wednesday as another upper level disturbance shifts
southeast over the region, before surface high pressure begins to
slowly build southwest into the area Thursday. This will nudge the
surface front southwest into Southeast Oklahoma and East Texas, and
will continue to focus isolated to widely scattered showers and
thunderstorms over all but Southcentral Arkansas and the eastern
sections of Northcentral Louisiana. Rain will become more isolated
Friday as drier air continues to backdoor southwest, with a return
to near normal temperatures for the latter half of the new week.

Fire Weather Parameter Definitions
Cloud Cover Predominant cloud condition (e.g., cloudy, pcldy, clear).
Precip Type Type of precipitation expected to occur such as rain, showers, thunderstorms.
Temp (24H Trend) Forecast maximum or minimum temperatures in Fahrenheit with a 24-hour trend note in parenthesis.
RH % (24H Trend) Forecast maximum or minimum relative humidity with a 24-hour trend noted in parenthesis.
20FT Wind (MPH) 20-foot wind speed (mph) and direction (eight compass points).
Precip Amount Amount of liquid precipitation expected to the nearest hundredth (0.01).
Precip Duration Number of hours measurable precipitation is expected to last.
Mixing Hgt (M - MSL)
and
Mixing Hgt (FT - MSL)
A projected height in meters or feet above mean sea level through which vigorous mixing will take place based on the maximum temperature on a given day. It is the height at which smoke will lose its buoyancy and stop rising. It is valid for the afternoon hours when temperature nears the predicted maximum.
Transport Wnd (M/S)
and
Transport Wnd (MPH)
The predicted average wind in meters per second or miles per hour in the layer below the mixing height near the predicted maximum (usually in the afternoon).
Vent Index The Ventilation Index parameter is obtained by multiplying the mixing height in meters times the wind speed in meters per second.
Cat Day The Vent Index corresponds to a Catgeory Day.
< 2000 1
2000 - 3999 2
4000 - 7999 3
8000 - 16,000 4
> 16,000 5
Mix Hgt 500 The temperature in Fahrenheit needed to achieve a mixing height of 500 meters. If the expected high temperature is cooler than the 500 meter mixing height temperature, then the mixing height parameter above will be less than 500 meters.
Stability Class The stability class based on wind, incoming solar radiation (sun angle), and cloud cover. The more unstable the forecast stability class, the more readiliy a pollutant is dispersed.
Stability Class Description
A Extremely Unstable
B Unstable
C Slightly Unstable
D Neutral
E Slightly Stable
F Stable
