Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Southwest Arkansas...
Northwest Louisiana...East Texas...and Extreme Southeast Oklahoma
National Weather Service Shreveport LA
507 AM CDT Mon Jun 17 2019

.DISCUSSION...
An upper level disturbance over Eastern Oklahoma this morning will
shift east into Arkansas today, with scattered showers and a few
thunderstorms expected to gradually diminish from west to east
later today. Cooler temperatures and the scattered storms will
result in higher Min RH`s today, ranging from 60-70%. Isolated
to widely scattered showers and thunderstorms at best are expected
Tuesday, mainly over Deep East Texas and North Louisiana, with
Min RH`s ranging from 50-60%. However, scattered showers and
thunderstorms will return Wednesday and especially Wednesday night
through Thursday morning mainly along and north of the I-20
corridor of East Texas, North Louisiana, Southwest Arkansas and
Southeast Oklahoma, as a couple of upper level disturbances move
through the northern half of the region. A risk of severe
thunderstorms exists Wednesday night across these areas, before
this final disturbance exits the area by midday Thursday. Hotter
temperatures and drier conditions with only isolated afternoon
showers and thunderstorms are expected by Friday through
much of next weekend as an upper level ridge of high pressure
builds north across the area.

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
