.UPDATE...

THE BULK OF THE PRECIPITATION IS NOW WELL OFFSHORE OVER THE OUTER
COASTAL WATERS THIS MORNING. WITH DRIER AND MORE STABLE AIR
CONTINUING TO ADVECT INTO THE FORECAST AREA FROM THE NORTH...HAVE
DECIDED TO REDUCE POP COVERAGE FOR THE COASTAL ZONES IN LOUISIANA
TO AROUND 10 PERCENT FOR THE MORNING HOURS. HAVE ALSO RAISED POPS
FOR THE OUTER COASTAL WATERS INTO THE LIKELY RANGE GIVEN THE
AMOUNT OF CONVECTIVE ACTIVITY CURRENTLY TAKING PLACE. AFTER
REVIEWING OBS AND SATELLITE TRENDS...HAVE ALSO RAISED SKY COVER
GRIDS TO MOSTLY CLOUDY COVERAGE FOR THE SOUTHERN THIRD OF THE
FORECAST AREA. STILL EXPECT THE ONGOING CONVECTION OFFSHORE TO
SLOWLY PUSH OUT OF THE AREA...AND HAVE DRY ONLY SLIGHT CHANCE POPS
IN PLACE BY LATE AFTERNOON. TEMPERATURE AND DEWPOINT TRENDS ARE ON
TRACK...SO NO CHANGES WERE MADE.  32
