Sounding discussion
The upper air release this evening was routine with no problems
encountered. The 00z sounding depicted an unstable and moist
atmosphere, but one in which substantial drying had taken place
in the mid levels when compared to the sounding from this
morning. The precipitable water value was 1.94 inches. The southwest
winds that prevailed near the surface veered to the west and then
northwest with height through the lower levels. Northwest winds
were observed in the mid levels while light and variable winds
prevailed throughout the upper levels. 11

a few showers are still ongoing across the forecast area, but
generallyVFR conditions will prevail through the TAF period. A
front will push through the forecast area tonight with a wind
shift expected sometime after 3z and progress throughout the area
through the late night and early morning hours. A few showers are
possible as the front moves through. ExpectVFR conditions to
prevail on Wednesday with a north wind. 13 mh

discussion...

a rather significant change to the local weather is beginning to
take place across the area. The short version is: out with muggy
& daily storms and in the drier air & rain-free skies. The more
detailed version: in the upper levels, a trough axis oriented from
the great lakes to the florida panhandle while a ridge is
centered near the permian basin of west texas. Down at the
surface, a weak frontal boundary associated with the upper trough
is located along a jackson to natchez to toledo bend line. It has
been slow to progress southward today but thinking that the
combination of loss of day time heating and reinforcement of the
western side of the upper trough will send the boundary into and
through most of the CWA tonight. Meso and global models continue
to be aggressive with convection development along and ahead of
the boundary. It hasn't been happening today and really don't
think much ever will except in la parishes south of new orleans.

Just too much mid level dry in capping development. Therefore,
will only carry slight chance pops in those coastal locations.

Drier air will be pushing into the CWA from north to south beginning
late this evening through Wednesday as the trough to the east
continues to dig south. The transition from near 80 td's to 70
will be much more gradual south of i-10 as coastal waters are
still extremely warm. Either way, should be a couple days of clear
skies and nighttime lows ranging from upper 60s in northern
portions of the forecast area and lower 70s for those in the
southern half. The CWA will not see a lowering of high temps
however. In fact, low dewpoints will allow even more warming than
currently forecast.

The pleasant weather will be short-lived however, with moisture and
lower rain chances beginning to return Friday. The good news is that
it should be gradual with barely 20% Friday, 20-30% Saturday and
40%+ Sunday as upper ridging aloft weakens. Early next week will
likely be a return to more typical wet summer pattern the bermuda
ridge strengthens. This will open the CWA up to deeper gulf moisture
and minimal subsidence aloft to inhibit convective development.

Meffer
marine... Weak front will continue to slowly work into the
coastal waters tonight. Not really expecting any impacts from this
front. It will stall over the coastal waters and again looks like
light offshore winds could develop over the inner waters tomorrow
and Thursday but by Friday winds the front should mix out and winds
will slowly veer around to easterly and then back to onshore flow by
Friday night. Cab
