For the 26 12z tafs, MVFR ifr ceilings visibilities are once again
affecting much of louisiana and east texas as low clouds and fog
continue to develop and spread northeast across the region.
Visibilities should quickly improve during the first couple of
hours of the period, but ceilings will be a bit slower to lift.
However,VFR conditions should prevail at all terminals by 26 16z.
A couple of isolated showers will be possible south of interstate
20 during the daytime hours, but overall rain chances are too low
to mention in the tafs. Moist, southerly flow will bring more low
clouds fog and MVFR ifr flight conditions to the area after

more hot and humid weather is expected today as the persistent and
strong upper level ridge over the southeast CONUS continues to
dominate our weather. Similar to the last couple of days, an
isolated shower or two cannot be ruled out during peak daytime
heating in the afternoon, but the overall rain chances are too low
to warrant mentioning in the forecast. Otherwise, daytime high
temperatures are once again expected to warm into the upper 80s to
lower 90s with heat index values rising into the mid 90s in most
A blocking pattern over the eastern pacific will finally begin to
break down on Monday allowing a strong upper trough over the great
basin to begin to move eastward into the rockies. The southeast
conus ridge will flatten and begin to move southeast into the
northern gulf of mexico and away from the area. The decreased
subsidence aloft may allow for a few more isolated showers Monday,
mainly south of a line from jacksonville tx to columbia la.
However, hot and humid conditions will likely continue.

become southwesterly. Moisture to increase from the southwest

on Friday. However, as southerly flow returns on Saturday, could see
diurnally driven sea-breeze convection across portions of deep east
texas and north louisiana. Another weak frontal boundary across
arkansas could also be the focus for convection across portions of
southeast oklahoma and southern arkansas on Saturday night.
Otherwise, high temperatures to average around the upper
80s through much of the week, possibly climbing into the low 90s
south of i-20 on Saturday. Overnight temperatures in the lower
70s can be expected through much of the period with the exception of
Friday morning where temps could dip into the upper 60s with
southeast oklahoma in the upper 50s.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
