DISCUSSION. Updated the Coastal Waters Forecast letting the Gale Warning. This has been replaced by a Small Craft Advisory that will continue through 6 pm today. Winds will continue to remain brisk over the coastal waters but have dropped enough to remove the Gale Warning.

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 531 AM CST Fri Feb 21 2020/

AVIATION . A very dry airmass is now in place in the wake of our latest frontal passage. Clear skies and VFR ahead. Strong northerly winds will gradually weaken through the day as the center of cold high pressure advances closer to the area.

PREV DISCUSSION . /issued 415 AM CST Fri Feb 21 2020/

DISCUSSION . Well winter has reappeared this morning as temperatures are in the 30s as far south as the I-10 corridor Under clear skies. central Louisiana is in the mid 30s and the only thing that is holding the temperatures in the mid 30s is the winds are mixing out the colder air at surface.

A 1040 high will settle into the northwest gulf region and broaden out through the day under clear skies. Winds will be tapering down and this will include the coastal lakes/bays and coastal waters.

Winds becoming light after sunset this evening . with low dew points and clear skies temperatures will fall into the upper 20s across central Louisiana with freezing temperatures as far south as the I-10 corridor around sunrise tomorrow. Remember to give your pets a warm place to sleep and protect the young plants.

The good news is that Saturday afternoon will begin a warmup ahead of the next system. But for this weekend looking at clear skies and mild temperatures after the Saturday morning lows.

The next front is expected to move through on Tuesday with rains once again late Sunday into Monday ending Tuesday morning timeframe. This next system looks to bring an addition inch or less of rainfall to the region before ending. Behind the cold front winds will again pickup in the coastal waters with seas building to Small Craft Advisory criteria.

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.
