Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Lake Charles LA 559 PM CST Fri Dec 6 2019

DISCUSSION. 07/00Z TAF Issuance.

AVIATION. Weak cool front continues to move east, currently approaching the ARA terminal where winds are southwesterly as of 23Z. Winds will shift northwesterly at this site within the next hour or two, with NW winds less than 10 KT acrs the remainder of the area. All sites are currently VFR with SKC or SCT stratocu, while AEX is reporting BKN cigs ~5K FT. Despite FROPA, enough low level moisture lingers for MVFR cigs to redevelop late this evening and persist overnight. MOS guidance suggests the potential for some patchy fog as well, although at this time, winds should stay elevated enough to favor low MVFR/IFR cigs rather than vsbys associated with dense fog. After daybreak, enough mixing should allow MVFR decks to scatter at BPT/LCH. Meanwhile, fcst soundings indicate a fairly stout inversion persisting at the eastern sites, which could maintain MVFR cigs through much of the day. NW winds will shift northerly overnight, then more NE during the day Saturday, with speeds less than 10 KT.

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 320 PM CST Fri Dec 6 2019/

DISCUSSION . Will place the cold front advancing into Acadiana at this time. Front in the process of moving through doing so with little fanfare as precipitation has been limited to just a few sprinkles dotting the area. Temperatures have trended a few degrees above that expected especially over the southern portion of the area. This few degrees higher was sufficient however to tie a record high temperature at LCH of 81, and closing in on records at BPT, LFT and ARA. Will have to wait for the upcoming climate run for official highs at these latter sites. Otherwise, radar absent of any precip across the area, but are seeing a few fires depicted.

A very pleasant weekend appears ahead with low level high pressure in place and flow trending more zonal aloft. Temperatures will return to more seasonal norms with rain chances coming in at nil as PWAT heads downward well below one inch.

A longwave trof advancing across the central CONUS Monday into Tuesday will send a strong cold front across the region early Tuesday morning. Carrying likely pops for showers with its approach and passage, and maintaining overrunning rains through the day. Tuesday appears to be one of those rather dismal days as temperatures struggle to increase from early morning lows. Rain chances then taper off for mid-week, but increase once again for the latter part of the week with the approach of a shortwave trof embedded within a zonal flow aloft.

MARINE . A moderate northerly flow will overspread the northwest Gulf overnight in the wake of our latest frontal passage. Cool high pressure advancing east of the region Sunday will bring a return of light southerlies as the day progresses, with the onshore flow strengthening Sunday night and Monday as low pressure organizes over the southern Plains. A cold frontal passage is then expected late Monday night into early Tuesday accompanied by widespread showers, and followed by strong and gusty northerly winds.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
