NWS Forecaster Discussion



AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NEW ORLEANS LA
700 PM CST SUN DEC 21 2014

.SOUNDING DISCUSSION...

ROUTINE FLIGHT TERMINATED OVER THE ALABAMA-MISSISSIPPI STATE LINE
EAST OF LUCEDALE MISSISSIPPI AT A HEIGHT OF 106.4K FEET OR 20.15
MILES IN ALTITUDE. 

SOUNDING WAS A LITTLE MORE MOIST THAN THIS MORNING WITH A
PRECIPITABLE WATER VALUE OF 0.91 INCHES...WHICH IS 105 PERCENT OF
THE CLIMATOLOGICAL NORMAL FOR THE DAY. ONE MOIST LAYER WAS BETWEEN
650 AND 750 MB...AND ANOTHER BETWEEN 300 AND 450 MB. VARIABLE
WINDS BELOW 900 MB QUICKLY BECAME SOUTHWEST ABOVE THAT AND
CONTINUED THROUGH 100 MB. WIND FIELD IN THE UPPER LEVELS WAS
RATHER STRONG...WITH A MAX WIND FROM THE SOUTHWEST AT 128 KNOTS
JUST BELOW 40K FEET. FREEZING LEVEL WAS JUST BELOW 11K FEET AND
THE -20C LEVEL WAS 20.2K FEET. 35

&&

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 339 PM CST SUN DEC 21 2014/ 

SHORT TERM...
A FRONTAL BOUNDARY REMAINS STALLED ACROSS THE THE CENTRAL GULF OF 
MEXICO. WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS ABUNDANT MID LEVEL PACIFIC 
MOISTURE STREAMING NORTHEAST ACROSS THE NORTHERN GULF TO THE 
SOUTHEASTERN US. A WEAK SHORTWAVE WILL BE MOVING ALONG THIS SWATH OF 
MOISTURE AND PROVIDE JUST ENOUGH LIFT TO SPARK SHOWER DEVELOPMENT. 
RADAR IMAGES OVER THE LAST FEW HOURS SHOW INCREASING SHOWERS MOVING 
ACROSS THE OFF SHORE COASTAL WATERS SOUTH OF THE MOUTH OF THE 
MISSISSIPPI RIVER. SOME OF THIS ACTIVITY IS EXPECTED TO NUDGE 
NORTHWARD INTO THE COASTAL PARISHES AND EASTERN MS COUNTIES THIS 
EVENING AND OVERNIGHT. FOR NOW HAVE KEPT THE RAIN OUT OF NEW ORLEANS 
BUT A FEW STRAY SHOWERS COULD REACH THAT FAR NORTH. REGARDLESS... 
EXTENSIVE CLOUD COVER OVERNIGHT SHOULD KEEP TEMPERATURES FROM 
FALLING TOO MUCH. HAVE KEPT FCST LOWS ON THE WARM SIDE OF GUIDANCE 
WITH TEMPS LIKELY NOT DROPPING BELOW 50 DEGREES FOR ANYONE BY 
NORTHERN PORTIONS OF THE CWA. 

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 AND SFC RIDGE NORTH OF THE AREA LIFTS 
NORTHEAST. MODEL SOUNDINGS SHOW PRECIP WATER VALUES STEADILY 
RISING...PASSING 1 INCH BY MIDDAY MONDAY. A FEW SHOWERS WILL BE 
POSSIBLE THROUGH THE DAY SO HAVE KEPT POPS AT 20 PCT. ON TUESDAY AN 
UPPER LEVEL TROUGH MOVING INTO THE CENTRAL PLAINS WILL BE AMPLIFYING 
AND DIGGING DEEP INTO THE SOUTHERN PLAINS AND TEXAS. MODELS SHOW A 
SURFACE LOW DEVELOPING ALONG THE TEXAS COAST AND RACING NORTHEAST 
ACROSS THE CWA IN THE AFTERNOON. 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 EVEN MORE TODAY TO AROUND 80 PCT. 
DEFINITELY STILL 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 PRESSURES AS THE 
FRONT APPROACHES 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. 

MEFFER

AVIATION...
MVFR CEILINGS HAVE PERSISTED THIS AFTERNOON AT KNEW...KMSY AND KHUM. 
AT THE REMAINDER OF THE TERMINALS...VFR TO OCCASIONALLY MVFR 
CONDITIONS DUE TO CEILINGS HAVE BEEN OBSERVED. THIS TREND WILL 
CONTINUE THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE AFTERNOON AND INTO THE 
EVENING. CEILINGS WILL LOWER LATER TONIGHT...AFTER 06Z...INTO THE 
LIFR CATEGORY WITH AREAS OF LIGHT FOG ALSO POSSIBLE AT TIMES. THESE 
CONDITIONS WILL PERSIST INTO THE MORNING HOURS MONDAY BEFORE SOME 
IMPROVEMENT AFTER 16Z. 11

MARINE...
GENERALLY LIGHT NORTHEAST TO EAST FLOW THIS AFTERNOON WILL SHIFT TO 
THE SOUTHEAST TONIGHT AS A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE EASTERN 
U.S. SHIFTS EAST. ONSHORE FLOW WILL INCREASE MONDAY AND MONDAY NIGHT 
AS THE PRESSURE GRADIENT TIGHTENS IN RESPONSE TO DEVELOPING LOW 
PRESSURE OVER THE CENTRAL CONUS. BY TUESDAY...WINDS WILL LIKELY 
FLIRT WITH SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY CRITERIA ACROSS PARTS OF THE COASTAL 
WATERS. A STRONG COLD FRONT WILL APPROACH THE WESTERN COASTAL WATERS 
LATE IN THE DAY TUESDAY AND THEN MOVE ACROSS THE COASTAL WATERS 
TUESDAY NIGHT. STRONG OFFSHORE FLOW WILL DEVELOP IN THE WAKE OF THE 
FRONT LATE TUESDAY NIGHT AND WEDNESDAY WITH UPPER END SMALL CRAFT 
ADVISORY TO POSSIBLY GALE CONDITIONS POSSIBLE. THE WINDS WILL EASE 
THURSDAY AS HIGH PRESSURE SETTLES OVER THE REGION. 11
