National Weather Service Shreveport LA 1003 PM CDT Fri Mar 16 2018 .DISCUSSION... A quiet evening is underway with skies mostly clear except for some passing cirrus. Gulf moisture returning northward with the prevailing southerly winds will allow for low clouds to advect northward later tonight, likely after midnight along and south of I-20. Despite a weak frontal boundary slowly advancing south toward the area overnight, do not anticipate any convection so have removed POPs entirely through the overnight period. The only other change was to lower sky cover through midnight prior to the lower clouds arriving across east Texas and north Louisiana. The remainder of the forecast looks to be on track this evening so no other changes are needed at this time. Updated text products have already been issued. /19/National Ag.
