National Weather Service Shreveport LA 638 PM CDT Mon Oct 22 2018 .AVIATION... For the 23/00z TAFs, VFR conditions should prevail with abundant mid and high level cloud cover for the next 24 hours. Regional radar loops show a large area of light rain across Central Texas, Deep East Texas, and Central Louisiana. Across our area, most of this rain is evaporating before it reaches the surface due to a very dry low-level airmass. However, the atmosphere should gradually saturate from the top-down, and aided by a cold front that will move from north to south across the area during the day Tuesday, rain should develop across much of Deep East Texas. This should lead to occasional -SHRA for much of the daytime hours of Tuesday at KLFK. No precipitation is expected at the remainder of the TAF sites for this cycle. CNNational Ag.

Hazardous Weather Outlook For WASHINGTON County, LA
510 PM CDT Mon Oct 22 2018 DAY ONE Tonight Hazardous weather is not expected. DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN Tuesday through Sunday A developing surface low along the Middle Texas coast Wednesday will track to the east-northeast either along or just north of the southeast Louisiana coast Thursday. This could bring multiple impacts to the region. First the risk for strong to severe storms will be highly dependent on track of this low. At this time it appears that the locations with the greatest risk of seeing severe weather may be confined to the immediate Louisiana coast Thursday. In addition to the limited severe risk locally heavy rain Thursday is possible, especially where multiple storms rain over the same area. Higher than normal tides will be a concern as well. Moderate to strong onshore winds will lead to water piling up on eastern and southern facing shores beginning overnight Wednesday and more so Thursday and possibly Thursday night during an increasing tide cycle. A coastal flood advisory may be needed for much of the area. Additional small craft advisory conditions may develop on Tuesday with hazardous winds and seas possible Wednesday and likely on Thursday with this surface low. Hazardous conditions may persist into Friday as a low pressure system moves through northern Gulf of Mexico. SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT Spotter activation is not anticipated through Wednesday night. The activation of storm spotters, ham radio operators, and emergency management personnel in support of hazardous weather operations may be needed Thursday and Thursday night.
