National Weather Service Shreveport LA 506 PM CDT Sun Jul 15 2018 .AVIATION... Much less cumulus today compared to Sat Aftn and as a result...much less in the way of convection to deal with. Will watch isolated showers which have just recently developed in the vicinity of the LFK terminal for the possible addition of a VCSH or VCTS mention in the 00z TAF cycle but otherwise, should have prevailing VFR conditions through the night and through the day Monday. Cu field will again begin building near or shortly after 15z on Mon but no ceilings are expected attm. The 12z NAM output is the only model suggesting the likelihood of -TSRA in the vicinity of the TXK/ELD terminals late in the TAF period on Monday so will choose to leave out any mention of this weather for this cycle but may need to include a mention for the 06z TAF package if more model consensus indicates. Look for light south to southwest winds overnight with speeds less than 10kts. South to southwest winds will prevail near 6-10kts areawide beyond 15z Monday. 13National Ag.
