... Freeze watch remains in effect from late Saturday night
through Sunday morning...

* temperature... temperatures are expected to fall to near 32
degrees late Saturday night and early Sunday morning.

* Duration... where temperatures fall below freezing... the
freezing temperatures could last as long as 2 to 4 hours.

* Impacts... tender outdoor vegetation may be damaged by
subfreezing temperatures.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

These conditions could kill crops and other sensitive vegetation.





 Special Statement  Statement as of 4:02 PM CDT on October 31, 2014


... High fire danger conditions expected on Saturday across
portions of southern Mississippi...

According to area forestry commissions and the US Forest Service,
recent dry conditions have made outdoor burning increasingly
hazardous. Conditions are such that a spark from equipment, the heat
from a catalytic converter, or any heat source could start a grass
or brush fire. The combination of dry fine fuels, such as grass, and
low relative humidity have resulted in continued fire danger across
the region.

Minimum relative humidity values will be near 25 percent Saturday
afternoon... and combined with 15 to 20 mph winds... will create high
fire danger given the dry conditions.

Fires place area forestry commissions, fire departments, and other
fire control agencies in life threatening situations, and can
endanger communities. Please use caution and help prevent Forest and
grass fires.



 Public Information Statement  Statement as of 10:08 PM CDT on October 31, 2014


... NOAA Weather Radio in Morgan City is back on the air...

The NOAA Weather Radio transmission from the transmitter located
near Morgan City is back on the air. We apologize for any
inconvenience this may have caused.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
814 PM CDT Friday Oct 31 2014 


..sounding discussion... 


The first sounding of November /in UTC/ has winds from the 
northwest in the low and middle-levels and then from the west above 
300mb. A peak wind of 86 knots was located at 19800 feet. These 
winds are bringing in another round of cool and dry air. 
Temperatures follow the dry adiabats from the surface up to about 
6500 feet. The greatest temperature change compared to 24 hours 
ago is right above this level and also where a significant drying 
of the column occurs. Precipitable water values of course are also 
below their climatological value. 


00z balloon info: no issues with the flight this evening. The 
balloon was in flight for 101 minutes before terminating at a height 
of 19.6 miles above the ground over Chandeleur Sound 60 miles 
downrange.

Previous discussion... /issued 338 PM CDT Friday Oct 31 2014/ 


Synopsis... 


Secondary push of colder...drier air has entered the area with dew 
points falling into the lower 40s across the northern half of the 
area. Temperatures are still mild with readings in the 70s...but 
northwest to north winds are already gusting into the 20-30 miles per hour 
range across much of the area. The driest air is still well to the 
northwest in Arkansas...Missouri and Kansas...where dew points are 
in the teens and lower 20s. 


Short term... 


Center of the Arctic high pressure will move from the upper 
Mississippi River valley this afternoon to the Carolina coast by 
Monday. No precipitation...and very little in the way of cloud 
cover...is anticipated through Monday. 


Main issues for the short term portion of the forecast are winds 
and colder temperatures. Sounding data indicates 30 knot winds as 
low as 1000 feet later this evening...and expect much of this to 
mix to the surface south of Lake Pontchartrain...will continue the 
Wind Advisory as earlier issued. Winds should remain below 
criteria elsewhere over land. Mixing will help prevent 
temperatures bottoming out tonight with the northern half of the 
area falling into the middle and upper 30s. 


Tomorrow is likely to be the coolest day since early March for 
much of the area with temperatures struggling to reach 60. With 
dew points in the 20s tomorrow night and lighter 
winds...temperatures are likely to fall to near the freezing mark 
across portions of the area north of Interstate 12. With this 
being the first cold spell of the year...have opted to go with a 
freeze watch over the northern half of the area overnight Saturday 
night into Sunday morning. 


Temperatures will begin to moderate Sunday afternoon and Sunday 
night as the high moves eastward...with temperatures nearing 
normal by Monday afternoon. 35 


Long term... 


Southerly flow will push temperatures above normal on 
Tuesday...and moisture will begin to return. Beyond 
Tuesday...large differences appear in the medium range models with 
the development of an upper low over northern Mexico. The GFS is 
the fastest with the movement of the upper low to Houston by 
Thursday morning...and develops a surface low over the northern Gulf by 
Wednesday which spreads a significant rain shield across the area 
for Wednesday into Friday. The European model (ecmwf) is considerably slower...near 
El Paso on Thursday morning...and takes the surface low through the 
middle Mississippi River valley. The Canadian is even slower with 
the upper low over Baja California California Thursday. The European model (ecmwf) solution 
was relatively close to the previous forecast package...and will 
be used for now. This will generally keep rain chances in the 
20-30 range for the last few days of the forecast. In decent 
agreement with the neighboring offices on rain chances. 35 


Aviation... 


VFR conditions with mainly clear skies and excellent visibilities will 
prevail through Saturday. North winds will be rather strong at 15 
to 25 knots at kmsy and 20 to 30 knots with gusts to 40 knots at 
knew from about 23z late this afternoon to 12z Saturday. 22/dew point 


Marine... 


Strong cold front with coldest air of season will help transport 
strong winds of 30 to 40 knots down from just above the surface 
tonight. Pattern of cold air moving over relatively warm 
water...pressure gradient and boundary layer winds will allow for 
winds to be near or on the strong side of marine MOS guidance 
tonight. Have upgraded the Small Craft Advisory to a Gale Warning 
valid through 6 am on Saturday for all waters except the far western 
coastal waters...then a Small Craft Advisory will remain in effect 
for all waters on Saturday. 


High pressure will gradually move across the forecast area on Sunday 
then move east early next week. Winds and seas will be gradually 
diminishing Saturday afternoon...rising again slightly Saturday 
night...then diminishing again down to 10 to 15 knots Sunday into 
Monday. The pressure gradient may tighten up enough to bring winds 
up to around 15 knots on Tuesday before easing back to 10 to 15 
knots on Wednesday. 22/dew point 


Fire weather... 


Minimum afternoon humidities will be near 25 percent tomorrow with 
15-20 miles per hour winds across much of the area in the afternoon. In 
coordination with the US Forest Service and Mississippi forestry 
concerns...will issue a Fire Danger Statement for our Mississippi 
counties for tomorrow. 35
