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 NW. 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 NW OVER THE NWRN 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 FCST. /CAB/
