.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 342 PM CST SAT DEC 20 2014/ 

SHORT TERM...
COLD FRONT THAT MOVED THROUGH THE AREA REMAINS STALLED WELL SOUTH OF 
THE CWA IN THE CENTRAL GULF OF MEXICO. MODELS APPEAR TO HAVE BACKED 
OFF ON THIS BOUNDARY RETROGRADING BACK NORTH CLOSER TO THE NORTHERN 
GULF COAST. SO HAVE PULLED INLAND SHOWERS FROM THE FORECAST... 
LEAVING THE COASTAL WATERS AND ADJACENT LA PARISHES AS THE ONLY 
AREAS TO SEE RAIN OVERNIGHT. MOVING INTO SUNDAY THERE COULD BE SOME 
PUSH FURTHER INLAND LATE IN THE DAY AND EVENING HOURS AS A WEAK 
SHORTWAVE MOVES THROUGH. ONCE AGAIN THE BEST CHANCE FOR RAIN WILL BE 
ALONG THE COAST BUT IT MAY CREEP AS FAR NORTH AS NEW ORLEANS BY 
SUNDAY AFTN/EVENING. CLOUD COVER AND ELEVATED WINDS WILL KEEP 
TEMPERATURES FROM FALLING TOO MUCH OVERNIGHT BUT SHOULD STILL SEE 40 
TO 45 FOR THE NORTHERN HALF OF THE CWA AND 50 TO 60 FURTHER SOUTH. 

LONG TERM...
ONSHORE FLOW WILL BEGIN TO PUMP MOISTURE BACK INTO THE AREA MONDAY 
AS A DEEPENING SURFACE TROUGH NW OF THE AREA TIGHTENS THE PRESSURE 
GRADIENT OVER THE REGION. MODEL SOUNDINGS SHOW PRECIP WATER VALUES 
STEADILY RISING...PASSING 1 INCH BY MIDDAY. A FEW SHOWERS WILL BE 
POSSIBLE SO HAVE KEPT POPS AT 20 PCT. A VERY AMPLIFIED UPPER LEVEL 
TROUGH WILL BE DIGGING VERY DEEP INTO SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF THE 
COUNTRY ON TUESDAY. MODELS SHOW A SURFACE LOW DEVELOPING ACROSS THE 
CWA IN THE AFTERNOON AND MOVING NORTHEAST. MEANWHILE...AN ASSOCIATED 
COLD FRONT WILL BE MARCHING TOWARDS THE AREA AND SWINGING THROUGH 
DURING THE EVENING AND OVERNIGHT HOURS. SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS 
WILL DEVELOP OUT WELL AHEAD OF THIS FEATURE WITH HIGHEST POPS DURING 
THE DAY ON TUESDAY. HAVE INCREASED THEM TO AROUND 60 PCT BUT DONT BE 
SURPRISED TO SEE THAT RISE AS THE EVENT NEARS. DEFINITELY HAVE SOME 
CONCERN FOR SEVERE WEATHER WITH THIS SYSTEM. ATTM...THERE APPEARS TO 
BE AMPLE INSTABILITY WITH WARMING LOW LEVEL TEMPS AND MID LEVEL 
COOLING TUESDAY. CAPE VALUES COULD TOP 1000 J/KG. A 100+KT 250MB JET 
WILL BE PASSING OVER THE CWA MIDDAY AS WELL. THIS COMBINED WITH 
PLENTY OF LIFT FROM FALLING PRESSURE AS THE FRONT APPROACHING COULD 
BE QUITE CONDUCIVE FOR STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS WITH ALL MODES OF 
SEVERE WEATHER POSSIBLE. 

ONLY GOING TO BE A COUPLE DAYS OF REPRIEVE AS PROGRESSIVE PATTERN 
BRINGS IN ANOTHER COLD FRONT FRIDAY NIGHT INTO SATURDAY. SHOWERS 
COULD BEGIN AS EARLY AS FRIDAY. THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT CHRISTMAS DAY 
SHOULD BE RAIN AND CLOUD FREE WITH TEMPERATURES NEAR NORMAL. SORRY 
TO ANYONE HOPING FOR A RARE WHITE CHRISTMAS. 

MEFFER

AVIATION...
IFR CONDITIONS CONTINUED TO PREVAIL AT EACH OF THE TERMINALS  
THIS AFTERNOON DUE TO LOW CEILINGS. VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWED THE 
CLEARING LINE APPROACHING KMCB AND KBTR FROM THE NORTH. CLOUDS WILL 
LIKELY SCATTER OUT AT THESE LOCATIONS FOR A TIME LATE THIS AFTERNOON 
AND EARLY THIS EVENING. ELSEWHERE...THE CLOUDS WILL HANG ON... 
ALTHOUGH CEILINGS MAY IMPROVE INTO THE MVFR CATEGORY. LOWER CEILINGS 
WILL CONTINUE TONIGHT OR REDEVELOP AGAIN AFTER 06Z AND PERSIST INTO 
SUNDAY MORNING WITH IFR TO LIFR CONDITIONS FORECAST AT MOST 
LOCATIONS. 11

MARINE...
A SURFACE LOW PRESSURE AREA WAS BROADENING AND TRANSITIONING INTO AN 
INVERTED OPEN WAVE OVER THE NORTH CENTRAL GULF THIS AFTERNOON. LOW 
LEVEL COLD AIR ADVECTION HAS CONTINUED TO RESULT IN SMALL CRAFT 
ADVISORY CONDITIONS ACROSS THE OUTER WATERS...SO THE SMALL CRAFT 
ADVISORY HAS BEEN EXTENDED UNTIL 6 PM TODAY FOR THE OUTER COASTAL 
WATERS. OTHERWISE...EXERCISE CAUTION CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL FOR ALL 
OF THE COASTAL WATERS TONIGHT FOR AREAS BEYOND THE LAKES AND SOUNDS. 
WINDS WILL DIMINISH SOMEWHAT SUNDAY AND ESPECIALLY SUNDAY NIGHT INTO 
MONDAY BEFORE PICKING UP AGAIN FROM THE SOUTH MONDAY NIGHT IN 
ADVANCE OF THE NEXT COLD FRONT. A STRONG PRESSURE GRADIENT TUESDAY 
WILL RESULT IN NEAR SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY CONDITIONS TUESDAY AS A 
STRONG COLD FRONT APPROACHES FROM THE NORTHWEST. THIS FRONT WILL 
MOVE ACROSS THE COASTAL WATERS TUESDAY NIGHT WITH UPPER END SMALL 
CRAFT ADVISORY CONDITIONS OR PERHAPS EVEN GALE CONDITIONS IN ITS 
WAKE LATE TUESDAY NIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY. THE WINDS WILL DIMINISH BY
