National Weather Service Shreveport LA 654 AM CDT Mon Jul 16 2018 .AVIATION... Scattered cirrus and VFR conditions across the region this morning. Expecting some convection to develop across the northern and eastern sections of the region later today and overnight. Decided to add VCTS to the TXK/ELD/MLU terminals at 17/00z to account for this. Tafs could need amending if convection develops earlier and/or moves further south. Otherwise, expect a growing cu field and VFR conditions to prevail through the daytime hours today and diminish overnight across the remaining Tafs. Light south winds will become southwest near 10kts or less for today before diminishing to light after 17/00z. /20/National Ag. Weather Outlook, International Ag. Weather Summary

Hazardous Weather Outlook For CADDO County, LA
631 AM CDT Mon Jul 16 2018 DAY ONE Today and TonightIsolated thunderstorms will be possible this afternoon during peak heating. Any thunderstorms that develop may produce gusty winds to near 25-30 MPH, brief heavy rainfall with amounts up to one quarter of an inch, and deadly lightning. A more critical concern will be the heat with highs in the middle to upper 90s. The hot temperatures when combined with the relative humidity will produce heat indices from 100-105 degrees. Any amount of time spent outdoors should include frequent breaks in the shade and adequate hydration to avoid any heat related illnesses. Work should also be done during the morning or early evening hours to avoid the hottest part of the day. Clothing should be light colored and loose fitting as to allow your body to cool itself. DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN Tuesday through Monday Isolated to scattered thunderstorms will be possible each day Monday through Thursday, mainly across Southeast Oklahoma, Southwest Arkansas, and Louisiana. As an upper level ridge builds over the area, rain chances will diminish and temperatures will gradually climb into the upper 90s and lower 100s by late week. Combined with the humidity, the hot temperatures may result in heat index values well above 100 degrees F across the entire Four State Region. SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT Activation of emergency management personnel, amateur radio operators, and storm spotters will not be needed through tonight.
