NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
327 PM CDT Friday Apr 24 2015 


Short term... 
an upper level disturbance associated with 250 mb jet is moving 
across southwest part of state. The leading edge of showers 
associated with this disturbance is approaching the northwest part 
of the forecast area and is expected to move across the area early 
tonight. 


Long term... 
a period of warm unsettle weather is expected to persist through 
early next week. Another upper level disturbance and stronger 
upper level jet will approach the state on Saturday producing 
another round of showers and thunderstorms Saturday night and 
early Sunday. There will be a break in the action Saturday night 
through Monday while another upper level disturbance moves from 
the Pacific northwest to The Four Corners on Sunday and then 
slowly east Sunday night through Tuesday. Cooler...drier air 
advects into Louisiana and Mississippi Wednesday through Friday. 
&& 


Aviation... 
ceilings will linger in the MVFR range over most of the terminals 
through the evening hours. In general...a stratocu field will run 
around 1500 to 2500 feet through 03z. An isolated thunderstorm could 
impact kbtr between 21z and 23z bringing some IFR conditions and 
gusty winds to the terminal. If this storm hold together it could 
impact kmsy and knew after 02z. However...have not mentioned ts in 
the kmsy and knew taf due to the low confidence of this occurrence. 
After 03z...a more stable airmass will settle in as an elevated 
inversion develops. This inversion will allow for stratus build down 
to occur...and expect to see a prevailing IFR ceiling form between 
03z and 06z at all of the terminals. Ceilings will further 
fall...and should be in LIFR range from 06z through around 12z. 
After 12z...a second surge of showers and thunderstorms is expected 
to move through along with a weak frontal boundary. Have included 
prevailing showers and MVFR visibilities...along with MVFR ceilings 
of 1000 to 1500 feet to reflect the expected overall conditions 
tomorrow morning. Of course...any stronger thunderstorms will 
produce gusty winds and IFR conditions as they move through. 32 


&& 


Marine... 
east to southeast winds 10 to 15 knots with seas 1 to 3 feet near 
the coast and 3 to 5 feet offshore. A weak area of low pressure is 
expected to form along the stationary front on Tuesday and move 
east on Wednesday. 


&& 


Decision support... 
dss code...yellow 
deployed...Navy week. 
Activation...none. 
Activities...monitoring severe weather potential through weekend.
