Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service New Orleans LA
327 AM CDT Mon Sep 23 2019

.DISCUSSION...
A very quiet weather pattern is forecast for the area through the
entire forecast period as persistent ridging at the surface and
aloft dominates the Gulf coast region. As a result, very little
in the way of convection is expected through the upcoming weekend.
The mid/upper ridge does become suppressed to the south and east
during the last half of the workweek as an upper trough passes to
our north before rebuilding across the region again over the
weekend. During the time period when the ridge weakens at the end
of the workweek, isolated showers may be observed over primarily
the western sections of the forecast area. Otherwise, most areas
will be dry for the next 7 days. Temperatures will continue to run
above normal with daytime highs mainly in the lower to mid 90s.

.AVIATION...
VFR conditions will generally prevail at the terminals through the
TAF forecast period. Patchy fog may briefly impact a few of the
more fog prone TAF sites through sunrise today and again toward
daybreak Tuesday. 11

&&

.MARINE...
Generally benign conditions will be observed across the coastal
waters through the week. Light easterly flow today will become
light and rather variable tonight through mid week as high
pressure becomes situated over the area. Thereafter, onshore flow
will develop for the end of the week and become moderate in
magnitude over the weekend. 11
