wx map shows 1026mb high over the region this afternoon. Satellite
showing stubborn low cloud clearing line across st. Martin, iberia,
and st. Mary parishes into the gulf, with scattered mid to high
level clouds streaming over SE tx la. Temperatures this afternoon
rising into the mid 60s over SE tx SW la, lower 60s elsewhere
except for lower acadiana in the lower to mid 50s due to the
lingering cloud cover.

With the light winds, patchy fog will be possible after midnight,
with patchy dense fog possible around the daybreak hours. Only
limiting factor will be how much mid level cloud cover lingers
overnight.

Partly to mostly cloudy skies and slightly below normal
temperatures expected Monday and Tuesday as high pressure ridging
over the midwest to the gulf only slowly moves east.

By Tuesday night into Wednesday, the high will be east of the
region, with south to southeasterly return flow returning.

Another potent upper level trough will move across the region,
bringing the chance of precipitation. Not looking nearly the
precipitation maker the last two systems were, as the system is
expected to move quickly. Preliminary precip totals range
~0.50-0.75" for the event. Once the low moves east of the region,
colder air will return to the region, along with no precipitation
for Thursday- Sunday. A slow warming trend expected Saturday and
Sunday.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
