GMZ400 Synopsis For Lower Atchafalaya River La To High Island Tx Out 60 Nm Including Sabine And Calcasieu Lakes And Vermilion Bay 359 Am Cst Sun Jan 26 2020
Synopsis.. Widespread showers and isolated Thunderstorms will continue to move across the coastal waters from west to east as an area of low pressure moves across the northern gulf. Precipitation will come to an end late this afternoon with light offshore flow developing through the evening. Areas of fog will be possible across the nearshore coastal waters and the coastal lakes and bays late tonight into Monday morning which could reduce visibilities to below 1 sm. Fog will become less widespread through the day Monday before redeveloping Monday night into Tuesday morning. Another surface low is forecast to move across the northern gulf Tuesday into Wednesday accompanied by widespread showers.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Lake Charles LA 428 AM CST Sun Jan 26 2020

DISCUSSION. Weather this morning is unfolding largely as expected with widespread light to moderate showers painting the radar scope along with the occasional lightning strike although most of those have been confined to the coastal waters in closer proximity to the center of the surface low which appears to be somewhere near Galveston bay judging by observed pressure readings. This low is progged to slide from west to east across the northern gulf today with rain gradually ending by late this afternoon although a few isolated light showers could linger into the evening. Light northerly winds will develop in its wake as high pressure slides quickly into the region, but with no distinctly drier airmass at the surface, the wet ground and light winds will provide favorable conditions for fog development late tonight into Monday morning. Most short range guidance supports this.

With the high in place and weak upper ridging aloft, Monday will be a generally quiet weather day once the fog dissipates by mid morning. The sun is even likely to pop out a few times during the afternoon. With no change in airmass, another round of fog appears likely Monday night into Tuesday morning.

The next weather maker, an upper trof presently moving onshore bringing rain to parts of northern California, is progged to dig southeast generating a surface low across north Texas late Monday. This disturbance will swing across the area Tuesday with widespread showers and isolated thunderstorms invading from west to east through the day and continuing through Wednesday morning. There is some disagreement between guidance as to how far south the surface low will dig with the Euro and NAM both bringing the low to the coast while the GFS and Canadian keep it considerably further north across southern Arkansas. While widespread precip is expected in either scenario, QPF values could be significantly different depending on which solution eventually verifies. This forecast will favor the southern solution as it has been depicted more consistently over the last couple of days.

Guidance diverges further late in the week, but the general idea continues to be another large upper trof digging across the southern US Friday into Saturday accompanied by yet another round of widespread showers. The day 6 and 7 forecast is a blend of the Euro and GFS and remains low confidence.

MARINE. Widespread showers and isolated thunderstorms will continue to move across the coastal waters from west to east as an area of low pressure moves across the northern gulf. Moderate onshore flow will continue through this afternoon and small craft should exercise caution. Precipitation will come to an end late this afternoon with light offshore flow developing this evening.

Areas of fog will be possible across the nearshore coastal waters and the coastal lakes and bays late tonight into Monday morning which could reduce visibilities to below 1 SM. Fog will become less widespread through the day Monday before redeveloping Monday night into Tuesday morning.

Another surface low is forecast to move across the northern Gulf Tuesday into Wednesday accompanied by widespread showers.
