Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service New Orleans LA
1046 AM CDT Sun Aug 20 2017

.UPDATE...

Based on ongoing radar and satellite trends as well as the latest
runs of the HRRR and global models have opted to lower POP for
today and tonight across the area. The most likely area for
convective development should be over the southwest third of the
CWA where low level moisture convergence should be strongest. Have
kept chance POP of around 30 percent in the forecast for the River
Parishes and Bayou Region around Houma and Thibodaux for today.
Elsewhere, expect to see only isolated coverage and have lowered
POP to around 20 percent for today. Tonight should be mainly dry
as convection dissipates and the lower atmosphere stabilizes.
Have also lowered POP slightly for tomorrow, but still expect a
low end chance POP for the afternoon hours. The remainder of the
forecast is in decent shape this morning. 32
