Biggest concern for the overnight hours will be the potential for
patchy fog development through sunrise. While visibility
restrictions will likely not occur at all terminals, opted to
include restrictions at all sites to highlight the potential. Any
fog that does develop will dissipate by 14z.

Scattered to numerous convection will develop once again by late
morning impacting terminals periodically through the mid evening
before dissipating around sunset. These storms will have the
potential to produce periods of visibility restricting heavy
rainfall, frequent lightning and gusty winds.

update...

convection has diminished across the forecast area with the loss
of daytime heating. Still a very moist air mass in place with
latest pwat value from the 21 00z klch upper air sounding at 2.16
inches. Therefore, as is typical with a moist air mass in the
summertime, expect nocturnal showers to develop during the
overnight over the gulf and try to push inland during the pre-dawn
hours into the coastal parishes and counties. Current forecast has
this scenario and no significant changes needed at this time.

discussion...

the main story today, as expected, is the rainfall. Local 88ds
show numerous diurnal outflow-driven showers and storms across
mainly the SRN 1 2 of the area. The klch ASOS shows nearly 4
inches of rain at the time, while local mesonet stations around
the lake area show plenty of 2-4 inch totals, much of which has
fallen in the past 30-45 minutes. Away from the rain, sfc obs
were showing temps in the lower mid 90s with heat index values in
exceeding 100f.

Pretty much a persistence forecast this afternoon. In the near
term, expect scattered numerous convection to linger through the
remainder of the afternoon before dissipating with sunset loss of
heating. All guidance is again showing nocturnal maritime
convection prior to sunrise with some of this activity moving
ashore into the coastal zones and lower acadiana. With the area
remaining in a relative weakness aloft, expect more
scattered numerous showers storms to develop tomorrow with
heating boundary interactions. High temps will be tempered a bit
by the cloud cover precip, but heat index values could approach
105f or so by the noon hour before convection becomes more
widespread. Essentially rinse and repeat for Thursday.

Rain chances increase even further for Friday and the weekend as
the models have come into good agreement on a mid-level low
rounding the WRN gulf before moving ashore somewhere across sern
tx swrn or s-cntl la, combining with copious gulf moisture
remaining in place (forecast soundings show pwat values around 2.3
inches). With lower pressures lingering aloft, even behind the
departing low, elevated rain chances remain into early next week.

a mostly light onshore flow is expected to continue through the
forecast period with the bermuda high generally in control.
