Synopsis
Outflow from earlier thunderstorms over northern louisiana and
southern mississippi has moved south of lake pontchartrain and
currently lies near a gulfport to houma line. Behind the outflow,
dew points have fallen off into the lower and middle 60s.

Scattered thunderstorms are developing in advance of the outflow,
and most convection should be over the gulf of mexico by sunrise.

Short term
Forecast problem of the day is how much the current convective
outflow stabilizes the airmass. Certainly there is at least
temporary stabilization as noted by radar, but the 12z soundings
should be rather instructive as to how long it will take to wipe
out the inversion the outflow has set up.

Models are showing another impulse, likely a mcv, moving away
from the south texas convection this morning toward our area. It
should be noted that the hrrr depiction of the situation has been
running 3 hours or so behind reality for most of the night.

Convection allowing models (cams) are sending rather mixed
messages on convective redevelopment today. While there will
likely be a lull in precipitation this morning for much of the
area, will operate under the assumption that the lower levels will
mix out, allowing convective development as the next jet impulse
approaches. Will carry high chance to likely pops, but forecast
confidence is somewhat lower than i'd like. Pattern repeats
through the daytime hours Tuesday before shortwave ridging tries
to build into the area Tuesday night and Wednesday. Will continue
to carry mention of thunderstorms through Wednesday, but pops will
be lower Tuesday night and Wednesday.

Timing of clouds and precipitation will be the determining factor
in high temperatures over the next few days. Don't expect many 90
degree readings today, and most areas not likely to get much past
the lower or middle 80s. Similar conditions Tuesday before
temperatures warm a few degrees on Wednesday. 35

Long term
Thursday should be somewhat similar to Wednesday with somewhat
lower pops than the surrounding days, before deeper moisture
returns with impulses moving through the southwesterly mid level
flow across the area. Scattered convection is expected for the
weekend with the usual diurnally driven timing. Temperatures near
normal for that time period. 35

Aviation
Ceilings are remaining at ovc040+ outside tsra and shra areas where
ceilings fall to ovc015. This will remain the case through at least
late morning and begin to improve after for all south shore
locations. But north shore terminals may continue with these
conditions for a bit longer into the afternoon hours. Will use vcts
in most if not all tafs for this pack. The same conditions are
expected to move in again overnight. The number of tsra may increase
by Tuesday morning.

Marine
Light to occasionally moderate onshore flow will prevail across the
coastal waters through the upcoming week as a ridge of high pressure
remains over the eastern gulf of mexico and florida. A weak cold
front will stall today becoming more diffuse through mid week. A
general weakness in the atmosphere will remain through at least
Wednesday. Somewhat of a break in activity may occur Thursday and
Friday but chances of sh TS will once again be on the rise as we
move into next weekend. Winds and seas will be much higher in and
near thunderstorms throughout the week.

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.
