Marine Weather and Tides
Boothville, LA

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

353 am cdt Tue jun 19 2018

Short term
A tropical wave meandering across southeast texas extends well
across louisiana into mississippi. The upper air sounding from 00z
yesterday showed just how much moisture has spread into the area. Pw
was over 2 inches which is above the 90th percentile for this time
of year. Model soundings show that number creeping up throughout the
day. With so much moisture in place, should be easy for numerous
showers and thunderstorms again today. Therefore, mirrored the mav
for pops today as opposed to the conservative blended guidance. The
main potential impact today will be locally heavy rainfall due to
such efficient rain processes expected.

On Wednesday, an upper ridge will spread south and west across then
gulf of mexico from florida westward. Although subsidence will
moving in from the gulf, still will have enough moisture in place
for rain chances to be in the 40 to 50% range. The only exception is
far easter portions of the CWA where column moisture in lower and
subsidence is stronger.

An upper low will be tracking into the central plains Wednesday and
Thursday. This will cause the ridge over the gulf to retreat
slightly. A gradient in convective coverage will likely exist with
highest pops in northern forecast zones and lowest along the
coastline.

Long term
The aforementioned upper low will lift northeast ending this week,
thus allowing the ridge over the gulf to spread north over the
region this weekend. Subsequently, rain chances will drop quite a
bit and temps should be on the rise. Kept previous pops of 20% and
slightly increased high temps into the lower 90s.

Aviation
Another round of scattered sh TS are expected with more activity to
the west than those terminals to the east. A few sites mainly west
will have ceilings around bkn015 temporarily as most should remain
well inVFR. Some ceilings in the bkn060 can be expected for this
afternoon for a short time as well. Not a lot of difference between
this morning and tonight expected.D low pressure system over texas.

Marine
A fairly tight pressure gradient remains in place over the open gulf
waters west of the mississippi river this morning. Onshore flow of
15 to 20 knots and seas of 4 to 6 feet will persist over these
western waters through this morning. The pressure gradient will
gradually begin to ease tonight and Wednesday as the low over texas
weakens and a broad ridge of high pressure strengthens over the
eastern gulf of mexico. Winds and seas should drop to around 10
knots or less, and seas should fall to 3 feet or less for the latter
part of the week and the upcoming weekend.
