Discussion...
a large thick veil of debris cirrus is finally pushing over the
Shreveport/Bossier Metro area for a little warming for the rest of
the Memorial Day. Surface winds are fighting back from the north
with still lots of calm, but our 88d VAD wind is showing northwest
5-10kts. The frontal boundary is defuse with 60 dew points
separating 50s to the north and muggy 70s to far south. Radar has
been quiet since the mid to late morning mini flare up. Heating
may yet trigger a few cells, but models have some quantitative precipitation forecast even during
the overnight. So well see if sort of nocturnal development
unfolds on the rubik's cube of winds we have at this time.

Little change expected with a continued chance for rain as the
westerlies lift a weak low across SW U.S., Underneath a ridge
over the northwest U.S. (Slow moving pattern with high over low) this
old front will wash out and then even reactivate with SW flow
aloft by late week. Then a 1021mb high will drop out of the mid
west U.S. And Great Lakes late next weekend with some delightful
northeast winds. /24/
