355 am cst Sun nov 19 2017

Sfc observations currently show the cold front which passed the
forecast area last evening has now moved off the sern la coastline
and lies well beyond the marine zones this morning. However the
forecast area continues to feel its effects with temps in the
upper 40s lower 50s over all but maybe the immediate coastline and
the extreme sern zones... While an elevated nrly sfc flow also
persists, albeit winds have died off from last night. Regional
88ds have gone ppine while satellite imagery depicts generally
clear skies with the exception of lower st mary martin parishes.

First order of business this morning is the inherited wind
advisory for the coastal zones. Observations continue to show
gusts AOA 20 knots even though speeds have dropped off to 10-15
knots... Given the current trends, feel safe in allowing the
advisory ride til its expiration time of 12z 06l, at which time
gusts should have subsided as well to just an occasional peak
around 20 knots.

Dry weather will persist through Monday as a trof over the ern
conus pushes ewd and gets replaced by a more zonal flow aloft,
while sfc high pressure currently centered over the SRN plains
builds ewd and over the forecast area. Main story into tomorrow
will again be the much cooler temperatures as highs each day are
expected to top out in the lower mid 60s (as opposed to our recent
maxes around 80). Lows tonight are forecast to drop to the mid 30s
nern zones upper 30s to lower 40s elsewhere (except vicinity of
the coastline).

A decent shortwave is progged to develop over the desert SW and
push ewd tomorrow, passing over the cntl NRN gulf tomorrow night.

At this time, sufficient moisture for precip develop appears to
stay confined to the coastal waters. Next rain chance (albeit
small) for the forecast area comes late Tuesday as troffing moving
out of the plains helps push our next cold front toward the
region. Forecast soundings are beginning to indicate the potential
for enough moisture to pool in the lower levels to help produce a
little bit of shower activity at that time.

Our thanksgiving weather is looking dry but chilly as nrly flow
again develops aloft and high pressure builds over the region at
the sfc. Morning wake up temps are expected to be around freezing
across the nern 1 4 of the area, with readings in the mid upper
30s elsewhere. Highs are currently forecast to barely reach 60
across the ERN 1 2. Similarly the remainder of the forecast period
looks dry but with moderating temps as heights begin building

No changes were made to the inherited gale warning small craft
advisory. Did issue a low water advisory for the WRN inland lakes
as observed tide levels were already beginning to exceed -1.0 foot
mllw and projections indicated the potential to reach -1.5 feet
with this morning's low tide. Will allow the day shift to monitor
the need for vermilion bay. As winds relax later today with the
approach of high pressure, another round of elevated offshore flow
is anticipated with the next frontal passage mid-week.

These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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 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.
