NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
1015 PM CDT Sat Apr 18 2015 


Update...overall most of the rain has moved out for the ngiht but 
a few lingering showers are still over the far northwest. Can not rule 
out redevelopment overnight but it appears we may be in a dry slot 
for much of the night. Still keeping an eye on a weak impulse 
noted in WV moving out of Mexico to the northwest over the northwestern Gulf. 
This could be the one feature that gets development overnight but 
so far not much has happened. Zones and grids have already been 
sent out showing rain ending overnight for most areas. Otherwise 
no other changes made to the forecast. /Cab/
