AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service New Orleans LA 349 AM CST Sun Jan 26 2020

SHORT TERM. A weak open shortwave will be passing across the southern Mississippi Valley today. Mosaic radar shows a wide swath of showers across most of Mississippi and Louisiana. Low instability setup means stratiform rainfall expected today, thus not including thunder in the forecast. At some point, everyone should see rainfall today. Therefore, will have 100% POPS officially but with the caveat that locations south of I-10 will likely see a longer duration of rainfall. Overcast skies throughout the day will keep temps from moderating much. Thus expecting highs to mostly remain in the 50s.

LONG TERM. Zonal flow to start the week should lead to moderating temps without rain. Went with MAV/MEX for forecast highs instead of NBM as the NBM is typically too cool on the return of warmer air. Showers and a few thunderstorms should be returning to the local area mid week as a slightly more amplified trough moves right in the path of the one before it. The progressive pattern of rain every 2 to 3 days looks like it will persist into the weekend.

MEFFER

AVIATION. Showers have spread across the entire local area with all terminals seeing rain frequently. Ceilings remain around 10kft but still expecting lowering to MVFR/IFR/LIFR between 12z and 16z. Widespread rainfall and some embedded lowered VSBY in moderate to briefly heavy SHRA 15z and 22z today. Low ceilings will persist after 00z Monday through 12z Monday.

MEFFER

MARINE. Surface ridge has shifted east of coastal waters, allowing winds to rotate around to easterly. Higher winds will return today as a shortwave passes over the Gulf Coast states and a weak surface low develops in the central Gulf of Mexico. The resultant pressure gradient should be such that exercise caution wind speeds develop, first in waters west of the Mississippi River, this morning and persist through at least this afternoon. They will turn to northeast in direction as the surface low moves east of the area. A stronger open wave trough will move through the area mid week. This one should bring the return on low-end small craft conditions after it passes through on Wednesday. This progressive pattern of cold fronts every 2 to 3 days should continue, bringing another boundary through either Friday or Saturday.

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.
