Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service New Orleans LA Issued by National Weather Service Jacksonville FL 659 AM CDT Tue Sep 22 2020

AVIATION.

Tropical Storm Beta will meander over the middle Texas coast today and then move slowly northeastward along the coast tonight. A frontal boundary was located south of the area this morning over the northern Gulf, and this boundary will lift northward later today and tonight. VFR/MVFR cigs are forecast to become IFR this afternoon as a steady rain develops. East winds 10-15 knots with higher gusts will prevail through the day.

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 447 AM CDT Tue Sep 22 2020/

DISCUSSION . Overall it has been fairly quiet overnight with convection remaining offshore. There has still been scattered to numerous very light rain across the area. Winds have relaxed over land but are still blowing hard over the marine areas and tides are either at high tide or will be there in the next few hours.

Today through Thursday is the main forecast concern. Beta made landfall near Matagorda Bay. Rainfall has been the primary concern over the last few days for Tuesday and Wednesday and that is still the case but overall the threat of flash flooding is beginning to look much lower. Despite good LL convergence across the area and abundant moisture in place, rain just hasn't been able to penetrate inland much at all. What is likely the biggest hitch in that potential, the old front which has drifted even farther south from where it was the previous night. It is now well into the Gulf and north of the boundary is not really an unstable environment. Last nights sndg was saturated through the entire column and was conditionally unstable but with no real forcing in place we haven't seen anything more than light to very light shra if not sprinkles across the area. This should begin to change at some point today and tonight. As Beta sits over coastal TX today the front will begin to drift north and should move towards the coast later today and tonight. This will finally lead to better LL convergence, deeper LL moisture, and some instability. The front will increase the potential for showers and thunderstorm thanks to the increase in forcing it will provide as well. This band this afternoon and tonight will have the potential to produce heavy rain and isolated flash flooding is still possible but the rather heavy amounts that were previously thought 24 hrs or so ago are not anticipated. The greatest potential for heavy rain will be across mainly coastal portions of SELA.

Wednesday, Beta will begin to lift to the northeast out of southeast TX and into southwest LA late Wednesday. We should still see the boundary draped across the area mainly oriented N-S. Abundant moisture will remain in place and all features that lead to rain today and tonight will still be in place Wednesday and Wednesday night. Additional rainfall is expected along it and a we could still see pockets of heavy rain.

Thursday what is questionable but there is still the potential for pockets of heavy rain. Whatever is left of Beta will continue to lift to the northeast and should move into central MS. The boundary should take more of a SW-NE orientation and this lingering boundary could continue to serve as a focus for additional rain with locally heavy rain possible but the better dynamics will likely be north and east of the area.

Although the threat for flash flooding has decreased the potential is still there and no changes will be made to the flash flood watch at this time. WPC still has mainly the southwestern 3rd of the CWA under a Slight Risk for excessive rainfall today and then all of the area tomorrow and Thursday. Overall we could still see widespread 2 to 4 inches of rain with locally higher amounts.

Friday and into the weekend we will start to see things slowly work back to normal. Friday and Saturday will still be slightly below normal mainly for highs and we could still see some decent cloud cover as the trough axis left behind by Beta will still be west of the area. The base of the trough looks to close off Saturday and by Sunday would move over the area. This could provide one last shot of some rain before what could finally be the first real fall cold front next week. Models have been pinging on this front for about a week now and they are still showing it. Fingers crossed. /CAB/

MARINE . The coastal waters are still seeing a lot of impacts. Hazardous conditions continue across all waters and the Small Craft advisory remains in place. Winds look to remain strong through Wednesday and frequent gusts abv 20 kts could still continue well into Wednesday night, especially east of the MS River. The SCY has been extended through 00z Thursday but will likely need to be extended for portions of the coastal waters even longer.

As for the coastal flood advisory/warning no changes made at this time. The warning is set to expire at 17z today after all sites have sufficiently come off of high tide. After 17z all locations in the warning will then transition to a coastal flood advisory which will remain in effect through Thursday morning. /CAB/
