National Weather Service Shreveport LA 933 PM CDT Thu Aug 16 2018 .UPDATE... Convection remaining well north of our region this evening and with weak ridging in place, done see much chance on any of this convection making it town into our area overnight. Outflow boundary from SE OK convection has made it down into northwest McCurtain County but should lose its momentum as we go through the night. Did not totally remove pops for the remainder of the night but did lower them to slight chance variety and trimmed them back to only encompass our extreme northern zones. A quick check of 02z temps shows that we are running very near the temperatures we were seeing this time last night. Overnight forecast min temps are in the ballpark such that no changes were necessary to hourly temp or dewpoint grids. Update out shortly...13.National Ag. Weather Outlook, International Ag.
