Update
No changes at this time. Have been reviewing and analyzing the
short range cam models this evening, which have introduced some
nocturnal convection on some runs, but are trending back down in
the most recent run of the hrrr and rap. Upper air analysis
indicates the ongoing qlcs feature in the mississippi delta
region, racing east at 60 mph, and the trailing MCS near
shreveport are responding to upper level jet streak and feeding on
deeper low level moisture feed from the upper texas coast into
the ARKLATEX region at 00z. Meanwhile, another qlcs feature in the
texas hill country is expected to move southeast along the better
theta-e ridge, which should see this activity move off the texas
coast in the pre-dawn hours. It appears the models may be
suffering from convective feedback in attempting to scale properly
for short wavelength impulses. Based on this reasoning, will not
be updating the low pops currently forecast but have the night
shift watch trends closely. Incidentally, SPC did place a marginal
risk into our SW ms counties and adjacent florida parishes, but
this may be a bit overdone.

On another note: the radar is lighting up radially to the
northwest. This is three body scatter on a nyquist interval wrap-
around - essentially a second trip echo return from energy
returning to the radar from distant large hail core aloft near
shreveport area, amplified by erratic backscatter behavior. This
is the technical explanation for what is 'false return'.

Aviation
Vfr conditions are expected for the most part though some marine
layer clouds may roll into the area before daybreak in mostly sct
to occasional bkn coverage based around 2500 feet. Diurnal
diabatic heating should lift bases above 3500 feet by around 15z.

Some compression of gradient to present some gustiness to the
southwest prevailing wind, particularly after the advancement of
the gulf breeze by late morning to early afternoon.

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.
