The 0Z or 7 PM weather balloon data from the Shreveport National Weather Service and plotted by Rap Ucar shows a really nice evening.  The temperature and dew point lines were far apart indicating a very dry atmosphere well past the tropopause at 250 mb or 34,000 FT (where the temperature and dew point lines turn right).  A huge temperature inversion at 800 mb or about 6,000 Feet up was a result of strong subsidence or sinking air and a quick radiational cool down due to light winds and clear skies.  Overall, this was a picture perfect example of a stable weather sounding.
