National Weather Service Shreveport LA 622 AM CDT Wed Aug 15 2018 .AVIATION... Scattered -SHRA/-TSRA were noted northwest of ktxk this morning, courtesy of a nearby upper level disturbance. Computer models hint at this precipitation activity being maintained north of ktxk though would not be surprised of a stray -SHRA/-TSRA nears the said terminal. However, confidence is not high enough to insert a mention at this time but will of course amend as necessary. Concurrently, -SHRA have been struggling to develop west of klfk and once again will elect to not insert a precipitation mention. MVFR fog and CIGS have developed south of klfk and would not be surprised if either phenomena affects kggg, ktyr and kmlu later this morning. Have hinted at this potential with a SCT mention at kggg and ktyr, but recent trends suggests that a TEMPO group at kmlu and klfk is appropriate. Otherwise, light southerly or calm winds of this morning will veer to the south-southwest by late morning, with speeds increasing to around 10 kts by the afternoon /breeziest conditions to occur across the western terminals/. Shortly after sunset, wind speeds will drop to below 10 kts and hints of VFR-MVFR fog could plague klfk overnight. /29/National Ag. Weather Outlook, International Ag. Weather Summary
