PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 446 PM CST Mon Dec 9 2019/

DISCUSSION . Isolated to widely scattered showers continue to develop and stream NE across the area this afternoon amid otherwise unseasonably warm and slightly breezy conditions. CDFNT currently making its way through NE TX at this time progged to continue TWD the SE and reach the CWA doorstep by midnight. Warm air advection showers will continue to be possible through the evening, with steady albeit decreasing south winds and elevated dewpoints helpingto buoy temperatures ahead of the boundary. Rain chances will increase sharply across the northern zones late this evening as the front nears, with PoPs increasing areawide through the overnight as the front continues to progress through the area. Limited instability will preclude much in the way of thunder, with isolated TSTMS possible mainly I-10 south into the Gulf waters late tonight into TUE morning. Winds may relax enough tonight to permit some patchy sea fog formation, with VSBYS already reduced owing to 70 degree dewpoint air advecting over cooler shelf waters. Inland impacts would be limited to the southern half or so of the area, and could persist for a time even after FROPA as T/TD spreads will remain quite small.

Only a small part of South Central LA will reside in the warm sector after sunrise tomorrow, and thus have the opportunity to display some decree of diurnal rise. Rest of the area expected to see falling temperatures through the day with post-frontal rains continuing as the upper trof approaches from the west. This feature will traverse the area tomorrow night into WED, finally scouring the MSTR and ending rains from W to E.

Cool and dry weather expected WED night into THU, with an upstream shortwave trof inducing a frontal wave/weak low over the northern Gulf THU night into FRI, bringing back a small chance of rain over the Gulf waters and ERN third of the forecast area. Dry weather with warming temperatures expected through the weekend, with the next chance of rain arriving to start the new work week.

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.
