National Weather Service Shreveport LA 1144 AM CDT Thu Jul 19 2018 .AVIATION... Only some mid lever moisture was noted on IR Satellite Imagery this morning but that cloud cover continues to quickly dissipate as we go through the remainder of the morning. Cannot rule out some patchy cumulus, mainly at the ELD/MLU terminals as we move into the afternoon hours but nothing that would warrant a ceiling is expected. Otherwise, ridging aloft has a firm control across our airspace and that will result in VFR conditions prevailing through the next 24 hours. Look for S to SW winds near at or below 10kts through the remainder of the daytime hours before decoupling takes place this evening. Some mid level cloud cover and with high thin cirrus should return from the north beyond sunrise Friday Morning. 13National Ag. Weather Outlook, International Ag. Weather Summary
