Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Lake Charles LA 1223 PM CDT Sat Jul 11 2020

DISCUSSION. 11/18Z TAF Issuance.

AVIATION. VFR conditions to prevail through the period, although brief MVFR cigs will be possible around or shortly after daybreak. While a few -SHRA cannot be ruled out acrs the Acadiana region late this aftn, overall potential remains too low to insert mention at this time. Sfc high pres will remain situated over the NW Gulf, with swly winds 5-10 KT during the day, diminishing during the evening.

24

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 1125 AM CDT Sat Jul 11 2020/

DISCUSSION . For most of the area, the main story this afternoon remains the heat Sfc obs show temps already pushing 90F area-wide. combined with dewpoints in the mid/upper 70s, apparent temps are already in triple digits and pushing advisory criteria (a few spots were already there as of 16z). See no reason to make any changes to temps/apparent temps for the remainder of the day, thus the advisory will continue as inherited.

Did insert slim POPs across lower Acadiana for the afternoon as 12z regional soundings showed potentially a little better moisture/lower heights and slightly cooler temps aloft/perhaps a bit more impact from approaching weak disturbance rounding the ridge. Elsewhere, dry conditions will prevail.

Update already out. 25

PREV DISCUSSION . /issued 522 AM CDT Sat Jul 11 2020/

DISCUSSION . 12Z TAFS.

AVIATION . Not expecting any restrictions to ceilings or visibility as high pressure at the surface and aloft dominates the region. Winds variable this morning, ranging from southwest to northwest by the late morning/afternoon hours around 6-8 kts.

DML

PREV DISCUSSION . /issued 408 AM CDT Sat Jul 11 2020/

DISCUSSION . Surface observations currently showing T/Td of 79/79 here at LCH. Similar muggy numbers being shown across the forecast area. Satellite imagery depicting mostly clear skies over the region.

Main weather story will remain the excessive heat continuing. Area will remain between strong high pressure aloft centered over the four corners area, and a persistent low pressure trof over the eastern CONUS. A warming subsident northerly flow will thus remain, while surface dewpoints will trend on the high side. Apparent temperatures are expected to exceed 107 degrees at several locations across the region through the afternoon and accordingly a heat advisory is in effect. From a general view, heat indices will range from 105-110 during max heating, but there will be a few locations that go above, and a few that stay below. Similar conditions are expected to continue for the next several days.

Any mentionable shower and thunderstorm activity remains well down the road as the overall dry synoptic pattern holds well into the new week. Latest NBM does begin to bring back lower end pops for convection beginning Thursday, then maintaining through the remainder of the week.

MARINE . High pressure centered over the northwestern Gulf of Mexico will maintain a mostly light southwest flow into the weekend. Winds will turn more southerly during the early part of next week as the high shifts more eastward.

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.
