Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Lake Charles LA 1220 PM CDT Mon Oct 18 2021

AVIATION.

Quiet weather continues today with high pressure overhead. VFR conditions will continue through the majority of the TAF period, with mostly clear skies and light northeast winds expected. Only exception may be a period of patchy fog at LCH and the Acadiana terminals around 11-13Z tomorrow morning. Not expecting VIS to drop below MVFR conditions with this fog, so it should be patchy/light. Once the fog burns off we will return to VFR area- wide through tomorrow afternoon.

UPDATE .

Forecast is largely on track this morning. Only made minor updates to the temperature grids to account for obs this morning as some areas were running cooler than forecasted. Otherwise, high pressure overhead will bring another pleasant and dry day to the region.

DISCUSSION .

SHORT TERM [Today through Wednesday] .

Cool and dry conditions again expected today. Skies will clear over the day, allowing for a modest warm up into the mid to upper 70s. With clear skies expected tonight, lows will fall into the lower to mid 50s. As the high drifts away from the region, winds will swing back around from the southeast. Temps and dewpoints will be on the rise, with upper 70s to 80s by tomorrow then mid 80s by Wednesday. With gulf moisture starting to seep into the region, PoPs will climb. A few models show a weak surface low developing over the gulf and making its way towards the coast. This will aid in shower / thunderstorm development going into the middle of the work week. Any shower activity will be limited to the immediate coast and coastal waters tomorrow, then spreading further inland to the I-10 corridor by tomorrow night. By Wednesday, scattered to numerous activity is expected for our LA Parishes with only isolated chances for our TX Counties.

Stigger

LONG TERM [Thursday through Monday] .

On Thursday . looking at a slight chance for showers and maybe a thunderstorm as temperatures will climb from a morning low in the mid 60s to around the mid 80s for most of the folks. A Canadian cold front will be trying to make it's through north Louisiana before stalling down along the coast early Friday morning. ATTM guidance is suggesting very little in the way of upper level support and push as zone flow will cont aloft. This will mean the colder air remains to the north and what we will end up with just enough from this system to keep temperatures on the mild side with morning low temperatures in the mid 60s Friday climbing into the upper 60s by Sunday into Monday. Afternoon highs will bounce around the mid 80s for highs. In addition . what rainfall that does develop and fall with this system will be limited and range from 1/4 of an inch or less.

Looking to see return flow off the gulf over the weekend and a few afternoon showers and maybe a storm or two. All activity will end by the late afternoon as temperatures settle back into the 70s during the evening hours By Sunday. an upper lvl trof pushing off the rockies will move into the western plain states. As this happens look for a uptick in chances for afternoon showers and thunderstorms. So we look to remain in a typical quiet Indian Sumner pattern for the region. What will remain is a weak boundary for the start of the next week with the better chance for a shower down along the coast and into the coastal waters.

K. Kuyper

AVIATION . VFR conditions expected past the end of this period. Upper level cloud decks to clear up from west to east over the day, with only light upper decks expected by the afternoon for most of the sites. Some light redevelopment to occur over the southern sites at the tail end of the period. Otherwise light northeasterly winds will become easterly during the day. Stigger

MARINE . Northeast winds will become more easterly today as high pressure shifts from Texas to Tennessee. A weak inverted trough of low pressure forecast to cross the northwest Gulf will briefly enhance this easterly flow Tuesday and Tuesday night, with southeast winds developing in its wake for Wednesday. Offshore flow will return to end the week as a frontal boundary pushes through the coastal waters.
