Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service New Orleans LA 309 AM CDT Fri Apr 3 2020

SHORT TERM. The jet streak moving across the area was able to provide enough lift to get sprinkles and even some light rain to develop. LL moisture has increased along with LL temps moderating which has led to some locations seeing temps at 7z around 10 degrees warmer than they were yesterday.

Even with some light rain expected over the weekend things look to be fairly quiet from an impact standpoint. Today will likely remain dry. Current light rain activity is already dissipating and quickly sliding east. Flow aloft will be zonal however we will be under the base of a rather amplified ridge today and tonight. This ridge is sandwiched between a strong Low pressure system in the Atlantic just off the northeast coast and a L/W trough over the Rockies and much of the western CONUS. Upstream of the ridge the subtropical jet in the WSW flow is providing ample lift as it moves into and across TX today and tonight. This will continue to develop activity off to our west but it will struggle as it tries to move east into our area.

Saturday and Sunday . We may begin to see some light rain or sprinkles nudge into the region from the west as the ridge breaks down and hghts slowly lower. That said we will not have a lot of support in the mid levels and aloft. We will actually be under an unfavorable location with respect to the jet Saturday which may improve late Saturday night. The mid level support also looks to get shunted off to the south a touch so we may actually remain dry most of the day however we should see decent cloud cover and probably a few showers. Best chance for rain appears to be overnight Saturday and into Sunday however still not very optimistic. There is a good chance that whatever develops Saturday rides just off to our south in the Gulf Saturday evening where it lines up better with the mid and upper level support. On Sunday we may begin to see s/w ridging across the area. Will hold onto to 20-40% PoPs north(lowest) to south(highest) for Saturday night and then 10-20% PoPs during the day Sunday. /CAB/

LONG TERM. /Monday through Thursday/

Upper level low amplitude ridge remains in place over the Gulf States during the extended portion of the forecast. Meanwhile, weak surface frontal trough dissipates along the coast Monday. A clipper system moves out of Canada middle of next week and shunts eastward, remaining well north of the forecast area. Slow developing Plains system places upper level divergence pattern over the western Gulf States to enhance rain chances Thursday. Otherwise, most of the period will be abnormally warm and humid. 24/RR

AVIATION. Even with the sprinkles and light rain out there cloud bases are around 10k ft. Expect no impacts for the next 30 hrs for TAFS with VFR conditions expected. /CAB/

MARINE. High pressure in control over the coastal waters will slide off to the northeast while a weak front tries to push towards the coast. This front will likely not make it however, broad low pressure in the western and southwestern Gulf may lead to winds temporarily shifting out of the east and east-northeast late Saturday and early Sunday. This will be short lived though as winds quickly begin to veer back around to the east-southeast late Sunday and eventually out of the southeast and south Monday and into Tuesday. Winds will generally remain below 12 kts however there could be a window Saturday night as the pressure gradient from the broad low in the western Gulf and high pressure to the northeast tightens allowing for a short time frame of winds around 15kts. Seas will also generally remain in the 2-3 ft range while seas to 4 feet will be possible overnight Saturday in the outer waters and then maybe again in the outer waters next week due to persistent southerly winds. /CAB/

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.
