NWS Forecaster Discussion



AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NEW ORLEANS LA
401 AM CDT TUE SEP 16 2014

.SHORT TERM...
VERY LITTLE EVIDENCE LEFT OF DECAYING FRONTAL ZONE...ASIDE FROM
SOME MODEST WIND CONVERGENCE CURRENTLY AIDING CONVECTION ALONG THE
COAST AND IN THE COASTAL WATERS. BROAD SADDLEPOINT ZONE HAS
BECOME ESTABLISHED OVER THE GULF WITH THE FORECAST AREA ON THE
FRINGES OF DEEPER WESTERLY FLOW ALOFT. MODELS STRONGLY SUGGEST
PERSISTENT AND DEEPENING TROUGHING TO TAKE PLACE OVER THE EASTERN
SEABOARD COUPLED WITH AMPLIFICATION OF A PROGRESSIVE RIDGE OVER
THE ROCKIES BY THURSDAY. THIS PLACES THE FORECAST AREA IN A
NORTHWEST FLOW REGIME WHICH OPENS A VULNERABILITY FOR SUBTLE
MESOSCALE VORTEX STRUCTURES TO TRIGGER CONVECTION EACH LATE
AFTERNOON AND EVENING. FRONTOGENETIC FORCING WOULD ALSO FAVOR
ORGANIZED CONVECTION MOVING FROM THE NORTH WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AND
EVENING. POPS COULD BE HIGHER FOR WEDNESDAY IF NOT LIMITED BY
PROXIMITY TO COL PROVIDING LESS THAN OPTIMAL DEEP LAYERED INFLOW.
APPROACHING FRONTAL ZONE WILL ALSO PROVIDE LOW LEVEL MOISTURE
DIVERGENCE TO PLACE A RELIANCE ON ANY MESOSCALE OUTFLOW BOUNDARIES
TO PERPETUATE CONVECTION. TEMPERATURES TODAY AND WEDNESDAY WILL
ONCE AGAIN BE VARIABLE BY PRECIPITATION COVERAGE IN THE AFTERNOON
HOURS BUT MOST AREAS SHOULD REACH CLOSE TO 90F BEFORE CLOUD COVER
THICKENS.

.LONG TERM...
A RELATIVELY EARLY ESTABLISHMENT OF PERSISTENT NORTHWESTERLY FLOW
ALOFT WILL MAINTAIN A VULNERABILTY OF MCV FEATURES DROPPING FROM
NORTHERN BRANCH FLOW THROUGH THE WEEKEND. GFS AND ECMWF ARE IN
GOOD AGREEMENT ON ANOTHER STRONGER FRONT MOVING INTO THE AREA LATE
NEXT MONDAY AND MAY BE ACCOMPANIED BY SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS GIVEN
UPPER LEVEL DYNAMICS INDICATED. UNTIL THE FRONT CLEARS THE
AREA...AN UNSETTLED STRETCH OF DAYS IS LIKELY FOR MUCH OF THE
COMING WEEK AND THROUGH THE WEEKEND.

.AVIATION...
VFR CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO PREVAIL OUTSIDE PERIODS OF
CONVECTION...HANDLING WITH TEMPO GROUPS GENERALLY AFTER 18Z ALL
TERMINALS. 

&&

.MARINE...
GENERALLY LIGHT WINDS AND LOW SEAS FROM A SYNOPTIC PERSPECTIVE BUT
SOME ROUGHNESS FROM NUMEROUS THUNDERSTORMS DRAPED ACROSS THE
COASTAL WATERS THIS MORNING. OUTSIDE OF CONVECTION...WINDS AND
SEAS ARE EXPECTED TO REMAIN RELATIVELY A LOW LEVELS THROUGH THE
WEEKEND.
