Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service New Orleans LA 357 PM CDT Mon Apr 19 2021

SHORT TERM. Tonight through Wednesday night

High pressure will generally remain in control of the area's weather through the short term. A couple models try to squeeze out some light precip from the mid level clouds that will be traversing the area tonight associated with a fast-moving shortwave, but this appears pretty unlikely given the dearth of moisture in the low levels. I can't 100% rule out some over- zealous virga resulting in some light sprinkles, but doubt seriously anyone will see measurable precip. Will maintain silent 10% POPs for after midnight tonight.

A reinforcing front will move through the region late tomorrow and should be off shore by Wednesday morning. Again, not expecting anything in the way of precip associated with the front as there still won't be much moisture to work with. Have trended on the lower end of guidance for the lows and the higher end of guidance for the highs given the dry airmass. The one wrinkle in the forecast for tonight will be the passing clouds, though the thicker clouds shouldn't move in until after midnight, so think there is still potential for some decent radiative cooling before that.

Bottom line, am forecasting lows generally in the 40s for northern areas and 50s for southern areas tonight and tomorrow night. Lows should be a little cooler Wed night following the reinforcing front, and a few places could touch the upper 30s in northern areas. For highs, a warm afternoon tomorrow with highs in the mid to upper 70s, followed by a cool down in the wake of the front for Wednesday afternoon, with highs in the mid 60s to lower 70s.

LONG TERM. Going into the latter part of the work week, high pressure gradually shifts eastward as another upper trough approaches from the west. Generally looks like a warm front will move through the region Friday night, with a cold front on its tails Saturday. That being said, best rain chances will be Friday night into the first half of Saturday. Will mention the 12z model guidance and blend is a bit more progressive than the 00z runs with the surface front into the Gulf by Saturday evening.

SPC has areas to the west outlooked for Friday, and would not be surprised to see some kind of outlook area introduced for Saturday at some point. Though it may not be until Saturday is part of the shorter term forecast where probabilities don't have to be as high to warrant an outlook area. Still several days away, so plenty of time to narrow down the specifics. Don't think it will be any kind of large scale outbreak, but certainly can't rule out one or two severe storms given model forecast soundings with moderate instability and dewpoints in the upper 60s.

Once the front moves through, cool and dry high pressure builds into the area again.

AVIATION. Valid through 00z Wednesday . VFR conditions expected through the forecast period. Mid and high level cloud cover possible tonight as southern stream shortwave moves through. Dry low level air should preclude any restrictive ceilings. Expect winds to diminish through the afternoon and overnight.

MARINE. Fairly benign conditions expected across the waters through Tuesday. A front will move through the waters Tuesday night, putting an end to the more tranquil conditions. Behind the front, expect winds and seas to build as the gradient tightens and high pressure moves into the area. The center of the high remains north of the local area, with the gradient never fully relaxing. This will likely necessitate exercise caution headlines for various period through the end of the week and into the weekend as another frontal system moves through the area late Friday into Saturday.
