Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Lake Charles LA 408 AM CST Mon Dec 9 2019

DISCUSSION. Temperatures have been rising across the region through much of the night as relatively warm, moist gulf air continues to advect into the area. The elevated winds responsible for the warming temperatures are also serving to hold fog density in check with the lowest visibilities observed so far this morning being 5 miles. Patchy dense fog will still be possible this morning where winds are able to become light enough to support it, but expect overall coverage and density to be less than yesterday.

00Z KLCH RAOB observed a saturated surface layer through approximately 3kft last night with forecast soundings indicating this should deepen somewhat through the day. With low level moisture plentiful and afternoon highs expected to be flirting with daily records, (LCH daily record high is 82) isolated diurnally driven showers and perhaps a couple of thunderstorms will dot the region from late morning through the afternoon.

The approach of a cutoff low sliding east out of the desert southwest tonight will provide much more favorable upper level support for widespread showers. As the upper low crosses the northern gulf, its progged to become absorbed by a much larger shortwave rotating around the central U.S. while pushing a strong surface front through the area Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday evening. With widespread light to moderate showers expected across the region for nearly 24 hours, rainfall totals of around an inch or perhaps a bit higher are expected.

Strong CAA will develop the wake of the frontal passage making it feel a bit more like mid December rather than mid April. The high temperature forecast for tomorrow is very low confidence as it is predicated on the exact timing of the frontal passage. A couple hours either side of the expected timing could easily result in a 10 degree difference in high temperatures. Forecast guidance ranges from mid 50s to mid 60s. The official forecast is based on the current best estimate timing the frontal passage.

The much cooler, drier airmass will set the weather tone Wednesday through Friday with temperatures beginning to moderate late Friday into Saturday ahead of the next frontal passage over the weekend.

MARINE. A modest onshore flow will prevail until a cold front pushes through the coastal waters on Tuesday with strong north winds and building seas expected in the wake of the frontal passage. Widespread showers and possibly a few thunderstorms are expected to develop Monday night and continue on Tuesday with the passage of the front. Winds and seas will subside Wednesday night into Thursday with offshore winds persisting through the end of the week.

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