national weather service lake charles la
513 am cdt Sun may 19 2019

Update Convection beginning to sag somewhat south and have
seen development of a fairly strong cell over jeff davis parish
where a warning may be required shortly. Have expanded tornado
watch 191 to include jeff davis and vermilion and all our
remaining parishes to the east. Watch in effect until 10 am cdt.

Prev discussion issued 502 am cdt Sun may 19 2019
discussion... An active morning ongoing with strong to severe
thunderstorms advancing across central louisiana where a tornado
watch is in effect until 10 am cdt. Earlier activity over interior
southeast texas has weakened and the tornado watch was allowed to
expire at 4 am cdt.

Convection associated with a sharp and negatively tilted
mid upper level trof now approaching the mississippi valley,
capes in excess of 2000 j kg and favorable shear. Activity
has been very limited along and south of the interstate 10
corridor and where lift has been limited. Will see a west to
east ending of the convection through the day as aforementioned
trof advances further east and northeast and flow aloft trends dry
west to northwest.

Pattern through the remainder of the week looks overall dry. Did
have to include a low end chance for a few showers and
thunderstorms Monday afternoon for the northeast portion of the
forecast area. This associated with some weak energy incoming as
flow aloft comes back around to the southwest as another vigorous
low advances into the plains then advances north. This is
followed by a second cyclone culminating into a deep trof for the
western CONUS and an amplifying and retrograding ridge for the
east conus. Dry pattern thus expected.

Marine... A moderate early morning southeast flow will gradually
relax as strong low pressure advances northeast through the
eastern plains. Showers and thunderstorms associated with this
system will be ending west to east through the day. An overall dry
pattern is expected to prevail through the week, but winds will
strengthen going into Tuesday and Wednesday as another strong
storm system advances across the plains.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
