Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service New Orleans LA
347 AM CDT FRI JUL 1 2016

.SHORT TERM...
A pretty quiet radar this morning across the forecast area. Not as
much convection over the coastal waters this morning so things
should not be as exciting as previous mornings around here. No
major changes in the forecast as high pressure starts to build
into the region today. Rain chances will be small again today with
a slight chance of a shower or storm mainly along and south of
I-10/12. The heat will become the story as temperatures will
remain in the low to mid 90s today and through the weekend. Rain
chances through the weekend will be small as well with a small
chances of a shower or storm forming along seabreeze or lake
breezes.

.LONG TERM...
Again high pressure should remain in place through the weekend. Guidance
suggests a system moving north of the area early next week. This
should could increased rain chances a little bit but it is
uncertain how much this will get into the area. Will have to watch
for more guidance in order to adjust pops accordingly. Temperatures
not expected to deviate from mid 90s through this part of the
forecast period.

&&

.AVIATION...
Generally VFR conditions to prevail at all terminal locations next
24 hours. IFR conditions at KHUM appears to be local ground fog
affects and will likely improve abruptly when observations become
augmented after daybreak. convective coverage should remain isolated
and not high enough to include in TAFs at this time. 24/RR
