Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Lake Charles LA 1010 PM CDT Thu Apr 2 2020

UPDATE. Area radars shows an area of light to moderate rain acrs east TX, with just some patchy light rain extending acrs cntl LA into SE LA. Additional sctd showers are seen mainly just beyond our coastal waters zones. This activity is associated with a weak mid level impulse, which is expected to cross the region overnight. Activity should gradually diminish toward daybreak as the impulse exits east of the area, although mid and high clouds are expected to persist, while low clouds begin to spread inland acrs lower SE TX and SW LA. With southerly winds and increasing moisture, overnight lows are not expected to be as cool as the past few mornings, especially acrs lower SE TX and far SW LA where temperatures are not expected to fall much beyond the middle and upper 60s.

Adjusted Pops slightly to reflect radar obs and short term guidance, and updated ZFP to reflect these adjustments. Also tweaked hourly temps and dewpoints to align with obs, but this did not result in any significant changes.

DISCUSSION . 00Z TAFS.

AVIATION . SCT/BKN layer around 3500ft with BKN/OVC above 12000ft at BPT/LCH, mainly above 12000ft at remaining sites. Radar showing isolated showers across inland SE TX, not expected to reach any terminals this afternoon/evening. SE winds around 10-14 kts expected to diminish this evening, but likely remain around 5-7 kts overnight. Best chances for MVFR ceilings will be at LCH/BPT towards the daybreak hours.

DML

PREV DISCUSSION . /issued 332 PM CDT Thu Apr 2 2020/

DISCUSSION . Radar currently clear of any precip. Satellite imagery depicting widespread upper level cirrus over the region, while surface observations indicating areas of lower cu and stratocu development. Low level southerlies now in place are resulting a steady upward rise of dewpoints. With the established southerlies, lows tonight will trend near 10 degrees above that of last night. Will be maintaining a chance of showers for the inland area with the exception of lower Acadiana overnight, with showers and a few thunderstorms possible Friday mainly over the west and central portions of the forecast area. Rain chances ramp up area- wide on Saturday as a cold front advances into the region and stalls, while disturbances move overhead along an enhanced belt of westerlies.

Boundary will retreat north as a warm front Sunday with convective chances lowering. An unsettled weather pattern will continue into the new work-week as disturbances aloft continue to advance over the region, while temperatures trend significantly higher.

MARINE . Winds will remain light to moderate from the southeast through Friday between a ridge of high pressure over the eastern CONUS, and low pressure and an accompanying cold front advancing across the plains. Winds will trend more easterly moving into the weekend ahead of the cold front which is expected to move near the Texas coast or just offshore where it will stall.

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.
