249 pm cst Wed jan 23 2019

Synopsis
Low pressure over michigan with the trailing cold front soon to
depart the CWA to the east. Still a band of convection with the
front, but it's only produced wind gusts in marine areas. Most
rain amounts in the 1-2 inch range. Still light precipitation well
behind the front, but rain amounts in these areas have been fairly
light. Quite a spread in temperatures across the area, ranging
from 71 at pascagoula at 2 pm, to 46 at new roads. West of the
atchafalaya river, temperatures have fallen into the 30s over much
of western louisiana.

Short term
Precipitation will continue to shift eastward tonight with all
areas dry by midnight. Very small chance that a little bit of
frozen precipitation could occur on the backside of the
precipitation shield, but the threat is very low, and not seeing
any indications that it's occurring to our west.

Cold high pressure will move southeast over the next few days,
and be centered over alabama on Saturday. This will keep dry
weather over the area through the weekend. Temperature guidance is
fairly similar for much of the period, with the exception of the
met lows on Friday night, which appear to be too cold. Will
generally trend toward the gfs ECMWF temperature guidance. 35

Long term
A southern stream shortwave moves across the gulf of mexico on
Sunday, but this one will be far enough to the south to keep the
precipitation shield restricted to the gulf. Another shortwave and
cold front will move across the area Monday night or Tuesday,
with at least some scattered showers associated with the frontal
passage. Once again, at least a small potential for frozen
precipitation on the back edge of the departing precipitation
field, but threat not high enough to carry 6 days out in the
forecast. Another cold blast behind that system, but at least at
this point, no indication that it will be any colder than the last
few systems. 35

Aviation
MVFR and occasionally ifr conditions will continue through much of
the evening as lingering showers associated with cold front continue
to affect the area. Gusty northwest winds behind the front will
gradually ease through the night, with the exception of terminals
along the immediate south shore of lake pontchartrain where it will
likely remain gusty through the early morning. Showers should come
to an end from west to east beginning around 00z for kbtr and kmcb
and continuing through 03z for kgpt. Similarly, low ceilings should
improve from west to east after midnight.

Marine
A cold front will continue sweeping eastward through the coastal
waters this evening. In the wake of the front expect strong
northwest winds with gusts in the 30 to 35 knot range. Winds and
seas will gradually ease beginning late tonight and continuing
through tomorrow morning. While winds are forecast to drop below
advisory criteria by sunrise, seas will take a little bit longer to
respond and the small craft advisory may need to be extended through
the morning hours due to hazardous seas - mainly across the open
gulf waters. Beginning tomorrow, high pressure remains in control of
the local weather through the weekend and into early next week. The
next front looks to affect the coastal waters toward midweek.

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.
