Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service New Orleans LA 409 AM CDT Thu Jul 16 2020

SHORT TERM. Not much change in thinking as high precip numbers will remain for today. Along with PW values around 2", conditions will remain condusive for waterspouts and some wet microbursts. Some dry air will provide a lid on most activity Friday but it won't keep some sh/ts from developing. It will just take a few hours more of heating to accomplish this. This should provide a more normal distribution of activity during the day through Saturday.

LONG TERM. The start of next week will be the next indication of deep moisture moving into the area once again providing higher than normal numbers of sh/ts. With the dry air moving over the area in the mid levels, the chance of one or two downbursts will be around basically each day through the weekend at least.

AVIATION. VFR outside TSRA which should affect all terminals at some point today. TS activity will bring about IFR conditions rapidly for cigs and vis. Winds could be an issue as well with some of these.

MARINE. Higher winds and seas will be found in and around sh/ts. Overall winds will be onshore around 10kt with a few fluctuations to 15kt for a short time overnight. Conditions will also promote the possibility of waterspouts today but not as much Friday through Sunday. Then these conditions are back again by the start of the new week along with nocturnal sh/ts.

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.
