area forecast discussion
national weather service new orleans la
357 pm cst Fri jan 19 2018

Short term
The upper level trough that brought wintry precip and bitterly cold
temperatures continues to lift northeast. A piece of that trough was
pinched off and is located in texas. Increasing 500mb heights from
the exiting trough and moisture cloud increase from disturbance to
the west will result in significant rises in nighttime lows. Expect
a 15 degree jump in tomorrow lows and highs from today. At the same
time, scattered showers will be possible as this week upper
trough low drifts east across the northern gulf coast. Hrrr precip
output shows light showers pushing into forecast zones along the
atchafalaya basin overnight. Therefore, have introduced slight
chance pops west of a btr to hum line. Moving into Saturday,
guidance is slightly higher than previous solutions but still quite
a bit lower than older runs. Decided to bump up rain chances for
areas west of i-55 but kept them at a halfway point between previous
forecast of 20% and mav met 40%. Additionally, sea fog will likely
become an issue along coastal parishes of la beginning late tonight
as dewpoints rise into the mid 50s. Attm, it appears this will
mainly be limited to areas west of the mississippi river. Ridge will
then build in Sunday which will stunt rain and allow continued
warming. You may think summertime has come early on Sunday compared
to last week when temperatures rise into the low 70s.

Long term
The CWA may be looking at a few thunderstorms at the start of next
week. Models show an upper trough tracking west across the southwest
us Saturday and Sunday. A low will develop at the base of the trough
and race northeast towards the great lakes Monday. This weather
pattern typically brings a relatively thin line of showers with
embedded thunderstorms through. Intensity shouldn't be of much
concern as instability and dynamics will not be very conducive for
vigorous development. Temperatures will likely drop back down behind
the front mid week, but only on the order of 10ish degrees with a
quick rebound by the end of the week.

Meffer

Aviation
Weak upper level wave over east texas will spread moisture amd
ceilings over most terminals from west to east through this evening.

Most will be around ovc080 but will lower to ovc050 this afternoon
for kbtr and khum. These ceilings should remain rather stable at
ovc050-060 through tonight. All terminals will show some possibility
towards observing either -dz or -ra by Saturday morning. At this
time, rain chances remain slight. Therefore, will hold off adding
precip to latter part of the forecast. 18

Marine
High pressure will shift east through tonight bringing return flow
back to the northern gulf tonight into Saturday along with some
rain. Foggy conditions near the coast could develop Saturday night
through Sunday morning and Sunday night ahead of the next cold front
which will move through Monday. A stretch of strong northerly winds
look to occur again behind this front through next Wednesday. A
trough will develop over the gulf by mid week. This feature will
prolong an easterly flow over the coastal waters from Wednesday
through next weekend. 18

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.
