.DISCUSSION...
Today and tonight...

Another day with warm and dry conditions is expected. High 
pressure will continue to reside over the region which will result
in highs today in the lower 90s, and while there could be a stray
shower possible, most of the region will remain dry. /28/

Tuesday through Sunday:

The overall synoptic pattern will transition during the middle of 
this week. We have seen a pattern over the last few days with a deep 
upper-level low pressure system centered over the western CONUS and 
an oppressive ridge over the Southeast, but the upper-level low will 
become absorbed by a deeper system over the Hudson Bay region and 
the ridge will flatten and become centered over the Gulf of Mexico. 
This will present a more zonal flow across the country by the end of 
this week. On Tuesday, there will be a slight chance for showers and 
thunderstorms across our northeastern Louisiana parishes and 
southeast Arkansas counties around the periphery of the ridge. Then 
there will be an increase in chances across the forecast area for 
diurnally driven convection for the second half of the work week as 
the flattening ridge allows for a cold front to drop into our region 
and wash out. Afternoon thunderstorms may bring a threat for 
damaging wind gusts, with ample daytime heating allowing for steep 
low-level lapse rates to develop. /NF/
