NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
755 am CDT Friday Jul 3 2015 


..sounding discussion... 
The sounding this morning has plenty of instability at the surface 
with mixed layer cape over 3000 j/kg... though due to high 
pressure over the region today storms are not expected. Evidence 
of subsidence aloft is represented by the 825 mb cap and slight 
inversion layers near 550 and 400 mb. Drier air from 850 mb will 
mix through the boundary layer later today as well. Winds are 
southwest from the surface to 700 mb then become westerly to 400 mb. 
The wind then switches to northerly with peak wind of 45 kts at 
160 mb.

Previous discussion... /issued 343 am CDT Friday Jul 3 2015/ 


Synopsis... 


High pressure associated with the Summer Bermuda ridge centered 
over the eastern Gulf of Mexico this morning. Western upper ridge 
extends from California to New Mexico...with upper trough over much 
of the eastern half of the country. Wavy frontal boundary extends 
from North Carolina to Kansas. Isolated showers and thunderstorms 
over the coastal waters...but nothing over land this morning. 
Temperatures at 3 am range from the middle 70s to lower 80s. 


Short term... 


Bermuda high should keep much of the area dry for today...with 
temperatures warming into the lower 90s. A couple of northern 
stream shortwaves will move through the Tennessee and lower 
Mississippi valleys late tonight through Sunday. May see a few 
showers or thunderstorms very late tonight...but more likely to 
occur during the afternoon and early evening hours both Saturday 
and Sunday...which could have an effect on some Holiday related 
outdoor events. Will be looking at probability of precipitation around 50 percent for much 
of the area both days. With slightly cooler middle level temperatures 
associated with the shortwaves...cannot rule out a few storms 
getting strong to near severe limits on Saturday with the main 
threat being damaging winds. High temperatures will be held down 
slightly for Saturday and Sunday with convective temperatures 
generally in the middle and upper 80s both days. 35 


Long term... 


Still a bit of difference between the GFS and European model (ecmwf) regarding rain 
chances for next week...as the European model (ecmwf) holds on to the western ridge 
somewhat more than the GFS. GFS daytime probability of precipitation run 10-20 percent 
higher than the European model (ecmwf). While GFS probability of precipitation are only in the 20-30 range 
for the work week...the European model (ecmwf) solution would keep the forecast dry 
for much of the work week. Will continue with a blended solution 
for now with minimal mention of precipitation...but if the European model (ecmwf) 
solution becomes favored...later forecasts may remove mention of 
precipitation for much of next week. European model (ecmwf) solution would also 
mean slightly higher maximum temperatures. 35 


Aviation... 


Bkn180 VFR deck will remain through much of today and tonight. 
Should see scattered cumulus deck redevelop with daytime heating today. 
Convection should remain limited in coverage through tonight. 
17/te 


Marine... 


Bermuda ridge pattern to maintain light southerly flow for the 
forecast period. Squall line generation from frontal zone over the 
Tennessee and middle-Mississippi Valley may bring a threat of high 
winds onto the tidal lakes late Saturday afternoon and early 
evening. Otherwise...light winds and low seas expected through 
Tuesday night. 17/te 


Decision support... 


Dss code....blue. 
Deployed...none. 
Activation...none. 
Activities...river flood warnings on Mississippi River from Red 
River Landing to Baton Rouge. 


Decision support services (dss) code legend 
green = no weather impacts that require action 
blue = long fused watch/warning/advisory in effect or high 
visibility event 
yellow = heightened impacts with short fused watch/warning/advisory 
issuances; radar support 
Orange = high impacts - slight to moderate risk severe; nearby 
tropical events; hazmat or other large episodes 
red = full engagement for moderate risk severe and/or direct 
tropical threats; events of National significance
