Discussion
The most impactful weather through the forecast period will be
occuring over the next 24 hours. A split flow trough pattern is
developing across the center of the country with the sharper portion
diving south from canada into the upper mississippi valley.

Amplification of both troughs will occur today which will send a
cold front across the CWA tonight. A slight shift in the timing of
this boundary suggested by models means that previous thinking that
rain will be limited to coastal waters simply won't be the case.

Radar already shows showers passing across the southern tier of
louisiana parishes with more off the coast of texas and moving
northeast. Its this second batch that meso and medium range models
show moving into the CWA from the southwest before the front gets
here. For this reason, have modified pops to attempt to capture this
solution. The result is generally 20% for most of the area today and
20-50% with higher pops in extreme SW CWA zones and less than 10% in
ne zones. This is through 06z as fast approaching front will shift
rain south after that. This FROPA will take the little warming that
will occur on today and bring temps back down to a good 5 to 10
degrees below normal for wed-fri.

The CWA will generally remain under troughing through the rest of
this week and through the weekend. This will be the case due to the
mid week trough's lack of progressiveness and a deep trough diving
out of canada into the eastern 1 4 of the CONUS this weekend.

Another frontal boundary will swing through Saturday evening,
reinforcing cooler temps. No rain expected with this boundary.

Meffer

Aviation
Ceilings should run bkn035+. Vis not expected to be restricted with
the exception of an area along and southwest of a line from btr to
hum with some light to moderate rain after dark. New front moves
through Wed morning with clearing. East winds become north today and
remain that way ahead of and behind the front but elevated speeds
especially on the lee side of lakes.

Marine
Winds will begin to rise today ahead of a disturbance that will
begin to develop over the texas coastal bend. As this disturbance
moves east sh TS and winds will slowly increase through the day. A
more abrupt rise in wind speed will occur late tonight as a cold
front approaches. The cold front will pass through the northern gulf
wed during the day. Between the disturbance getting forced south and
the front moving in, winds will ease a bit back to around 15 to 20kt
wed afternoon. The front will pass by late afternoon and early
evening causing winds to rise abruptly once again. Since winds will
only ease a bit Wed afternoon before rising once again, we will
continue the advisory through this period as well.

Winds ease by the end of the week as high pressure settles across
the northern gulf. Saturday looks like the lightest wind day at the
moment as it transitions from high pressure to a new front moving
through for Saturday night into Sunday. Return flow to become better
established by the start of next week.

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.
