area forecast discussion
national weather service new orleans la
304 pm cdt Fri may 24 2019

Discussion
A high pressure system is in place over our area and is expected
to remain over our area for the next week. This high pressure system
causes southerly winds, which will bring moisture and warm air
into our area. These winds are also light at the surface and
aloft, which will slow down the shear and movement of air in the
atmosphere. In addition, the high pressure system creates upper
level convergence, which enhances the subsidence and sinking in
the atmosphere. As a result, little to no precipiation is expected
for the next week. Because of the low winds, the warm air
advection, and the moisture present in the air, heat index values
are expected to reach 100 degrees f this weekend into the
beginning of next week, which could pose problems for vulnerable
populations. Msw
aviation...

the rest of the afternoon and through 05z Saturday will remain
vfr. Again overnight, primarily in the 09-14z Saturday window,
brief flight restrictions will again be possible. These
restrictions will generally be in the MVFR range due to occasional
ceilings fl010-020 and or 3-5sm in fog mist. Can't rule out ifr,
particularly at kmcb and khum. Any restrictions should improve to
vfr around 14z Saturday. 18

Marine
Upper ridging and surface high over the southeastern us will
maintain a southeast flow over the region and coastal waters through
the forecast period. Wind speeds should remain below 15 knots
through the forecast period, and do not anticipate any lengthy
periods of exercise caution conditions, if they occur at all. 18

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
