Today - Record highs with a strong dome of HIGH pressure centered over us. We can expect to see mid 80's for a highs across the Region and Deep East Texas area. Also expected are winds today of 15-20 mph. This is the reason the NWS Shreveport to have issued a Lake Wind Advisory that does include the Deep East Texas area.
Significant wind will continue tomorrow with a LOW pressure cold front blowing through. The front is really very dry...West Texas like 20-25% humidity will be the norm.
This cold front and dry air will bring our day time highs to more normal 60's with 40's at night for this week end.
A series of upper air disturbances will bring a shift in temperatures back into the 70's for highs and mid to upper 40's for lows, return the winds from the South, and load us with enough moisture from the Gulf to bring us slight chances for rain Monday thru Thursday.....although...only a total of 1/4 to 1/2 inch. Below: This graphic is an activity you might want to consider for March 11th at the NWS Shreveport Center. I made a tour of the NWS Center and assisted with a balloon launch last year . It was very informative and it is a very worth while event even without all the other things going on with the activity booths & vendors.
The balloon launch is at noon and is a real treat!!!
