Two Day Heat Advisory July 14 -15

The National Weather Service in Shreveport has issued a heat advisory... which is in effect from noon today to 7 PM CDT Thursday. The heat index is a measure of how hot it feels when the effects of humidity are combined with the temperature. A heat index of 105 degrees is considered the level where many people begin to experience extreme discomfort or physical stress. The heat index is measured under shady conditions... and direct exposure to sunlight can increase the heat index as much as 15 degrees.

Unless there are thunderstorms(30% chance) this afternoon the Heat Index should climb to 105° and surpass it! The graph will record the accuracy of my own personal forecast of a Heat Advisory for the immediate area of Southern McCurtain County.

Saturday Rainfall 5:30 PM
In 30 minutes it rained 1.3 inches.

A small thunderstorm appeared this morning and dropped 0.3 inches of rain in 15 minutes. At that rate a larger storm or a few more back-to-back would have rained 1.2 inches in 1 hour. This is the most significant rainfall since Thursday's Flash Flood watch that was cancelled when it did not rain at all. Yesterday just a few hundredths of an inch fell.

The Flash Flood Watch has been removed



This is a widespread watch, affecting most of Texas and Oklahoma.

More rain is predicted, obviously, over the next 36 hours, but not in my area. 0.01 inches of rain fell since yesterday's severe weather warning.

The Weather around here does not listen to weather forecasts too often. NWS Shreveport is good at seeing live radar storms and predicting their movement over my area 60% of the time.

The grass green counties on the map below have hardly changed in the past 24 hours except for McCurtain County.

July 7 A Flash Flood Warning has been issued until 1:45 PM

From 8:30 until 11:45 AM today between 0.6 and 1.3 inches of rain fell, depending on which of three data sources took the measurements.
This is very unacceptable to have such a large difference in measured precipitation within the five mile radius that includes mesonet, the airport, and a PWS.

More rain appears be moving north into this area. Will update the final totals when the mop and towels dry.

The only change was in the lowest rainfall total, now 0.8 inches.

It rained on the afternoon outdoor barbecues, the July 4th celebrations, starting at 4PM & lasting 30 minutes, during which 0.7 inches | 1.8 centimeters was recorded. (mesonet.org).

Scattered showers were forecasted in the afternoon and 3 small storms approached the area in a 4 hour timeframe but did not rain nor do anything other than each one made it cloudy for 15 - 20 minutes. However, the last storm got hungry when it smelled the meat!
