NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Shreveport la 
1021 PM CDT sun may 1 2016 


Discussion... 
widely scattered convection..including isolated severe 
storms...continue to develop near a quasi-stationary front located 
from klfk...to kmne...to kcdh. Some of the storms were quite 
robust earlier this evening with reports of Golf Ball sized hail 
in Union County Arkansas. 00z kshv sounding showed cape values 
around 2000 j/kg which has provided plenty of instability. 
Isolated severe storms will remain possible for another couple of 
hours but instability is gradually decreasing and convective 
intensity already appears to be waning. Isolated to widely 
scattered convection should persist for much of the overnight 
hours. Another band of showers and thunderstorms to the northwest 
over Oklahoma and Texas will likely enter the County Warning Area during the early 
morning hours as a shortwave trough moves across the Southern 
Plains. 


Probability of precipitation/qpf/wx grids were tweaked a bit based on current activity and 
some minor changes were made to dewpoints and winds based on 
latest observation. However...the majority of the forecast for tonight was 
left intact. /09/ 


&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 247 PM CDT sun may 1 2016/ 


Discussion... 
frontal boundary that brought strong storms and heavy rains across 
the region early in day on Saturday...has settled over south la/southeast 
Texas. Surface low developed over East Texas lakes...with inverted trough 
pivoting northward around low. A concentrated arfea of convection has 
developed over northcentral la...just south of I-20...along this 
trough. Have tailored probability of precipitation tonight and early tomorrow based on 
NAM model depiction of focusing trough moving to near I-30 
corridor late this evening...and then shifting back southward overnight. 
Meanwhile...larger area of convection associated with main frontal 
boundary to the south....will sneak into southern County Warning Area and bring 
high chance to likely coverage...intil northwest flow kicks both 
boundaries south of area by Monday evening. 
Omega block pattern to set up and provide a needed prolonged 
period of dryness across the area with seasonal to slightly cooler 
temperatures through the week. Introduced low probability of precipitation from the west by late in 
the weekend./Vii/.
