New AVIATION

SHORT TERM
(Tonight through Tuesday night)
Issued at 303 PM CDT Sun Jun 23 2024

Surface high pressure is centered over our region, with partly sunny skies, light winds, and temperatures in the lower to mod 90s. Heat indices are in the 99-105 F range. A couple of isolated showers or thunderstorms are seen in Cameron Parish and St. Mary Parish.

Tomorrow will be a couple of degrees warmer than today, and with that, heat advisories (minimum criteria is 108 F apparent temperature) have been issued for portions of central and south central Louisiana. It may need to be extended across the remainder of central Louisiana and east Texas. That will be re-evaluated later tonight. The best chances for showers and thunderstorms tomorrow will be in Acadiana with a 20 to 30 percent chance, while the remainder of the area will be less than 20 percent.

Tuesday will be a repeat of Monday, with warm temperatures and scattered showers and thunderstorms, primarily in Acadiana.

Overnight lows in the short term forecast period will be in the mid to upper 70s, so if you can, stay indoors and stay cool!

LONG TERM
(Wednesday through next Saturday)
Issued at 303 PM CDT Sun Jun 23 2024

The weather pattern basically stays the same in the long term.
High temperatures in the low to mid 90s, flirting with heat advisory thresholds each afternoon. Scattered showers and thunderstorms can be expected each day, and the threat will extend further west of Acadiana into southwest Louisiana as well.

AVIATION
(00Z TAFS)
Issued at 650 PM CDT Sun Jun 23 2024

VFR is expected to prevail amid the continuing influence of SFC high pressure stretching west along the Gulf Coast and ridging aloft extending from the Four Corners into the NW Gulf. A convective cluster and/or its outflow associated with a back- door front sinking across the SE CONUS may combine with sea/bay breezes across Acadiana to create enhanced TSTM chances at KLFT/KARA late tomorrow afternoon into early evening as depicted by some CAM guidance and the HRRR. For this forecast cycle, introduced VCTS at both of these terminals and will continue to monitor guidance trends.
