Sounding discussion
The upper air release this evening was routine with no problems
encountered. The 00z sounding depicted a very strong inversion
present between 935 and 895 mb with a shallow layer of cold air
beneath this inversion. The atmospheric profile was very moist
below this inversion, but quite dry above the inversion throughout
the remainder of the lower levels and most of the mid levels.

Moderate north to northwest winds were observed below the
inversion with west-southwest to southwest winds prevailing
throughout the remainder of the sounding. 11

synopsis...

upper low currently centered over southern arkansas. Starting to
see some indications from satellite and surface obs that low
clouds may be starting to break up over the atchafalaya basin, but
until upper jet pulls out, there will still be high clouds above
the low ones. Lix radar shows no significant precipitation over
the area, any returns being seen are from mid level clouds, and
not seeing any echoes below about 6500 feet. Cloud cover has meant
no recovery in temperatures today with mid-afternoon temperatures
generally in the upper 30s and lower 40s. Wind chill values range
from the upper 20s to upper 30s.

Short term...

drier air is on the way, and with the upper low jet MAX forecast
to shift northeast during the night, skies are expected to clear.

Timing of the departure of the high clouds will determine whether
the current freeze warning verifies. With upstream dew points over
northern louisiana and central mississippi in the upper 20s, will
not make significant changes to going forecast or warning
configuration, but not out of the question that some areas in the
warning could see temperatures remain just above freezing tonight.

Beyond tonight... Clear skies will be the rule across the area
through the weekend. Still some slight cold advection tomorrow, so
temperatures are going to have a difficult time getting past the
lower 50s, even with full sun. Another cold night tomorrow night
with areas north of the interstate 10 12 corridors potentially
seeing another light freeze. Gradual warming into the weekend with
high temperatures on Saturday and Sunday pretty close to normal.

Guidance spread on temperatures is actually pretty small for this
time of year, and have accepted a blend of guidance on highs. 35
long term...

upper flow becomes more zonal over the weekend, and only a weak
shortwave forecast to move through on Monday or Tuesday. At this
time, an increase in clouds is about all that is anticipated. A
stronger system is expected to move out of the southern rockies
Wednesday into Thursday. Precipitation could spread into the area
as early as Wednesday, but is more likely Wednesday night and
thanksgiving day. Those periods will be beyond the scope of the
current forecast package, but something to keep in mind for later
forecast packages.

Extended temperature guidance will be dependent on cloud cover
with the early week shortwave, but highs should be fairly close to
normal, with lows near to slightly above normal. 35
aviation...

lingering clouds remain in place across most of SE la and coastal ms
in the wake of a departing upper-level system to our north. Cigs
have been rather consistent between 008 and 012 and should stay that
way through late evening. These clouds will progress to the east
through early tonight leading to eventual clearing into daybreak
tomorrow. Winds should steadily diminish for inland locations
throughout the night, but will likely remain breezy along coastal
areas with winds remaining generally from the northwest. Tomorrow
will be dry with clear skies, leading to widespreadVFR categories
for all terminals. Klg
marine...

strong northwesterly offshore winds will continue through tonight
and into tomorrow thanks to a departing upper-level system well
north across arkansas. Small craft advisory has been extended for
offshore zones until 15z tomorrow, and added marine zones gmz536 and
gmz538. Support behind this decision was an in depth analysis at
what appears to be a developing low-level speed MAX behind
tightening height gradients across the area. Model sounding guidance
across these outer marine zones support the development of a well-
mixed marine boundary layer which will have no problem transferring
these low-level winds to the sea surface through mid morning
Thursday. Lingering gusty winds and seas 3-5 feet following through
mid-afternoon has prompted exercise caution statements for the 4
offshore zones of SE la. Otherwise, winds will finally diminish on
Friday and going into the weekend. Klg

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.
