Area forecast discussion
National Weather Service New Orleans la
340 am CST Sat Nov 25 2017

Short term...
another nice day is expected across the region as a cold front is
expected to move through the area. This front will have little to
no impact on sensible weather. Rainfall will not be an issue since
there is not enough moisture in the atmosphere to produce rain.
The only impacts from this front would be a slight increase in
clouds and small dip in temperatures on Sunday, but temperatures
will quickly moderate going into next week.

Long term...
high pressure builds into the region early next week and should
remain in place through at least midweek and should help bring
temperatures above normal. Little to no rainfall is expected
through Wednesday. The next chance of rainfall looks to be in the
Wednesday night into Thursday timeframe as a system moves north of
the area and a trailing cold front moves through the area. This
looks to be the only chance of organized rain for the week.
Otherwise, expect high pressure to move back into place late next
week into next weekend. Temperatures will be well above normal from the daytime
hours Tuesday through Thursday, with a cool down to near normal
temperatures expected for the weekend


VFR category conditions will prevail at each of the terminals
through the taf forecast period.


with high pressure in place winds are light Saturday. Another cold
front will move through overnight Saturday bringing northeast winds
offshore up to near 15 knots into Sunday. Winds will become more
easterly and lighter to near 10 knots Monday and Tuesday. Another
cold front with northerly winds should arrive late Thursday.
