646 PM CDT Mon Apr 23 2018

.DISCUSSION...
For 00z TAF issuance.

&&

.AVIATION...
No significant changes to previous TAF thinking. Diurnal fair
weather cu which developed earlier will dissipate with sunset/loss
of heating, leaving behind a clear overnight. Winds should
decouple with sfc high pressure nearby...despite good radiating
conditions tonight, not expecting much in the way of fog (best
shot would likely be KAEX where progged temp/dew point spread
would be least by sunrise). Repeat tomorrow morning with cu
development prior to 18z along with a continued nwrly flow.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 406 PM CDT Mon Apr 23 2018/

DISCUSSION...
Clear skies and a cool start to the morning today. But temps have
climbed into the upper 70s across the region and bit cooler
towards the beaches. High pressure will remain in control of the
weather tonight and into tomorrow. Winds will remain out of the
north. Temperatures will feel very spring like with afternoon
highs near 80 and relatively low dew points.

We will get the first signs of the next system late Tuesday as a
few clouds begin to return. Morning lows towards Wednesday will
still remain on the cool side as winds will be northeast to east.
Winds to swing around during the day on Wednesday to the southeast
with skies becoming cloudy during the afternoon hours. Look for
showers and a few thunderstorms Wednesday evening and into early
Thursday morning ending around the noon hour on Thursday across
south central Louisiana.

The weekend is shaping up to be dry with mild temperatures.
