Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service New Orleans LA 957 AM CDT Sun Mar 29 2020

UPDATE. Strong dry air advection behind the front has pushed dewpoints and relative humidity values lower than previously anticipated. Dewpoints are now in the lower to middle 50s across a large portion of the forecast area. Only extreme coastal Louisiana continues to see higher dewpoints in the lower 70s as they are still on the warm side of the front. The front has started to slow in forward progression based on satellite trends, and expect to see it stall along or just off the Louisiana coast in the next few hours. Have also updated the weather forecast to remove rain chances for the remainder of today due to the drier airmass that is in place. Temperatures are on track, so no adjustments to expected afternoon highs in the lower 80s were made.

Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerous 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.
