NWS Forecaster Discussion



AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NEW ORLEANS LA
842 PM CDT THU JUL 31 2014

.SOUNDING DISCUSSION...

ROUTINE EVENING SOUNDING TERMINATED NEAR THE LAKE PONTCHARTRAIN
SHORELINE JUST SOUTHWEST OF LACOMBE AT ABOUT 110K FEET.

VERY LITTLE CHANGE IN MOISTURE FROM THE MORNING SOUNDING WITH A
PRECIPITABLE WATER VALUE OF 1.62 INCHES. NOT SEEING THE WARM NOSE
THAT WAS BETWEEN 800 AND 850 MB THIS MORNING...WHICH WILL MAKE THE
AIRMASS A LITTLE MORE CONDUCIVE TO CONVECTIVE DEVELOPMENT. CELL
MOVEMENT STILL LOOKS TO BE RATHER SLOW...325/6 KNOTS. FREEZING
LEVEL IS AT 15.9K FEET...AND -20C IS AT 26.5K FEET. CAPE IS AROUND
1000 J/KG AND LIFTED AROUND -2. WIND REGIME WAS RATHER LIGHT IN
THE LOWEST 2 KM...THEN WEST TO NORTHWEST THROUGH 150 MB. STRONGEST
WINDS WERE ACTUALLY ABOVE THE TROPOPAUSE ON THIS FLIGHT...WITH MAX
WIND BELOW 200 MB ONLY 26 KNOTS. 

&&

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 402 PM CDT THU JUL 31 2014/ 

DISCUSSION...
A WETTER THAN RECENT PATTERN STILL LOOKS TO BE IN STORE FOR THE 
WEEKEND AND EARLY NEXT WEEK. CURRENT UPPER LEVEL PATTERN SHOWS A 
LONG WAVE TROUGH SITUATED OVER THE EASTERN HALF OF THE UNITED 
STATES...EXTENDING ALL THE WAY SOUTH TO THE GULF COAST. A RIDGE IS 
CENTERED ACROSS THE US/MEXICAN BORDER AND PROTRUDES NORTH ACROSS THE 
ROCKIE MOUNTAINS. A WEAK SURFACE LOW AND ASSOCIATED FRONTAL BOUNDARY 
THAT IS SLOWLY MOVING ACROSS EASTERN TEXAS WILL FINALLY MAKE ITS WAY 
TO LOUISIANA LATER TONIGHT INTO FRIDAY. 

CURRENT RADAR SHOWS QUITE A BIT OF ACTIVITY MOVING SOUTHEAST ACROSS 
NORTHERN PORTIONS OF LOUISIANA. HOWEVER...DRIER AIR IN PLACE HAS 
BEEN EVAPORATING MUCH OF THE RAIN AS IT MOVES IN. LOCAL SOUNDING 
CONFIRMS THIS SHOULD BE THE CASE WITH THERE STILL BEING A DRY LAYER 
LEFT IN THE MID LEVELS. THIS TOP DOWN PROCESS IS TYPICALLY W/IN A 
MORE STABLE ATMOSPHERE AND THUS LESS LIGHTNING ASSOCIATED WITH 
STORMS. SO HAVE LOWER THUNDER PROB TO ISOLATED VS MATCHING POPS 
THROUGH TOMORROW. AFOREMENTIONED FRONTAL BOUNDARY WILL SAG SOUTH 
TOWARDS THE CWA AND STALL OVER THE WEEKEND. THIS WILL BE THE MAIN 
FOCUS FOR INCREASE RAIN CHANCES AND HAVE NOT MADE MANY CHANGES IN 
THE PREVIOUS FORECAST POPS. PRECIP WATER VALUES STILL LOOK LIKE THEY 
WILL BE NEAR 2 INCHES...SO LOCALIZED FLASH FLOODING COULD BE AN 
ISSUE AT TIMES AS RAINFALL RATES WILL BE QUITE HIGH. 

BERMUDA RIDGE WILL BUILD WESTWARD ACROSS THE GULF OF MEXICO MIDDLE 
OF THE WEEK AND ONWARD. THIS MAY BE ENOUGH TO CUTOFF MOISTURE FLOW 
FROM THE SOUTHWEST WHICH WOULD LOWER RAIN CHANCES TO 20 PERCENT OR 
LESS. 

MEFFER

AVIATION...
VFR CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO PREVAIL EVEN AS CLOUD LAYERS THICKEN 
AT TIMES THROUGH MOST OF FRIDAY MORNING. CIGS AT OR ABOVE 090 ARE 
EXPECTED...ALTHOUGH SOME LOWER CIGS AROUND 040 COULD OCCUR AROUND 
KBTR BETWEEN 15-18Z FRIDAY AND SOME OTHER AIRPORTS AFTER 18Z. THERE 
COULD BE SOME LIGHT RAIN AND A FEW LIGHT RAIN SHOWERS STARTING IN 
NORTHWEST AREAS AND SPREADING SOUTHEAST LATER TODAY OR TONIGHT WITH 
A BETTER CHANCE ON FRIDAY. AT THIS TIME...COVERAGE AND CONFIDENCE 
ARE NOT HIGH ENOUGH TO INCLUDE IN THE TAFS. 22/TD

MARINE...
LIGHT WINDS AND LOW SEAS ARE EXPECTED TO PREVAIL THROUGH THE NEXT 5 
DAYS. THE COASTAL WATERS UNDERGO TRANSITION TO A MORE TYPICAL 
LAND/SEA BREEZE REGIME IN COMING DAYS AS A WEAK PRESSURE FIELD 
REMAINS IN PLACE ACROSS THE NORTH GULF. 24/RR
