GOHSEP DAILY OPERATIONAL REPORT
04 January 2012
As of:  1400 Hours

STATE EOC ACTIVATION LEVEL: Level 4 (Normal operations)

 

1. STATE WIDE EVENTS:   

No state wide events to report at this time.

 

2. LOUISIANA WEATHER:

SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA:  Today will be partly sunny during the day and mostly cloudy at night.  Thursday through Saturday has a 20 percent chance of showers throughout the day.  Sunday will be partly sunny during the day and mostly cloudy at night.

Temperatures: Today: 66/48, Thursday: 67/50, Friday: 71/53, Saturday: 72/48, Sunday: 64/48

HAZARDOUS WEATHER: Freezing temperatures occurring early this morning over east-central Louisiana will warm quickly after sunrise with warmer weather on tap for the entire region today as southerly winds prevail behind high pressure over the southeastern United States. A weak frontal boundary will pass through the area late tonight with no significant weather expected at this time.

 

Widely scattered to scattered showers will be possible beginning mainly near the coast on Thursday then spreading over the remainder of the area into Friday as an area of low pressure develops along the weak boundary and the main storm system aloft crosses the region. No hazardous weather is expected at this time. After a dry weekend, our next chance for rain will be Monday into Tuesday as another storm system and accompanying cold front affect the region.

 

Atchafalaya River at Morgan City:

Current Stage: 5.06 feet (Minor Flood Stage)

Minor Flood Stage is from 4 -7 feet

The river is expected to fluctuate between 4.9 and 5.2 feet through at least Monday 9 January 2012.

POTENTIAL IMPACT: At 4-5 feet, water may move up the bank and across access roads below the city dock. Floodwall gates should be closed by the 5 foot stage to protect against higher stages. Vessel traffic will be affected by stronger river current and vessel safety rules will be strictly enforced by the U.S. Coast Guard.

 

SOUTHEAST LOUISIANA: Today and Thursday will be mostly sunny during the day and mostly cloudy at night.  Friday and Saturday will have a 20 – 30 percent chance of showers throughout both days.  Sunday will be partly sunny during the day and mostly cloudy at night.
