NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
1124 PM CST Tuesday Feb 9 2016 


Aviation... 


VFR conditions through the forecast period. 35 


&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 935 PM CST Tuesday Feb 9 2016/ 


Update... 


Winds have eased more than anticipated over protected waters. 
Have dropped tidal lakes headlines entirely...and carrying 
exercise caution headlines over the sounds. Even that may be a 
little too strong. Midnight shift can assess dropping more from 
the forecast. 35 


Previous discussion... /issued 641 PM CST Tuesday Feb 9 2016/ 


Sounding discussion... 


A very stable atmosphere is over the central Gulf Coast with a 
well mixed boundary layer as shown by a dry adiabatic temperature 
lapse rate up to about 5900 feet. The air remains impressively dry 
with a precipitable water value of just a quarter of an inch. 
Winds were once again strong and the 0-2km winds averaged around 
35 knots. Winds are from the northwest in the lower half of the 
atmosphere and from the west in the upper half of the atmosphere. 
A peak wind speed of 112 knots was located at 41100 feet. 


00z balloon info: a successful flight reaching a height of 18 miles 
above the ground bursting south of Petit Bois Island 87 miles 
downrange from the office. The ascent lasted 88 minutes. 


Ansorge 


Previous discussion... /issued 254 PM CST Tuesday Feb 9 2016/ 


Short term... 


No significant changes in thinking from previous forecasts for the 
remainder of this week. The combination of northwest flow aloft 
and a strong surface ridge sliding across the Gulf south will keep 
a dry and very stable airmass in place across the forecast area. 
The breezy conditions experienced today will quickly dissipate 
overnight...as the surface high becomes centered directly over the 
Gulf south and the pressure gradient relaxes. By Thursday...the 
area will be on the western side of the ridge...and southwest flow 
should dominate in the low levels. With ample subsidence in place 
aloft...strong solar insolation occurring...and warmer air 
advecting in from the Gulf and Mexican plateau...temperatures will 
quickly rise for the latter part of the week. Before this warm up 
occurs...another cold night and cool day is expected tonight and 
tomorrow...as The Heart of the upper level cold lingers over the 
region. However...by Thursday...temperatures should quickly rise 
above normal...with daytime highs expected to be in the upper 60s 
and lower 70s. These conditions should persist into Friday as 
well. 


Long term... 


Heading into the weekend...a clipper system diving from the Great 
Lakes into the Middle-Atlantic States should drive a backdoor cold 
front through the area Friday night. This front will have very 
little moisture to work with...and only expect some passing clouds 
as it moves through. The biggest impact from this front will be a 
return to north and northeast winds and some colder air advecting 
in. Highs should fall back into the upper 50s and lower 60s for 
both Saturday and Sunday...and overnights will cool into the 30s 
and lower 40s. These readings are much closer to seasonal 
averages. 


Another short-wave trough will push through the northern tier of 
states on Monday...driving another cold front through the area on 
Monday. Both the Euro and the GFS still indicate that there will 
be a deeper pool of moisture in the middle and upper levels 
accompanying this front. As a result...have mostly cloudy skies 
and a low end chance of showers in the forecast for Monday and 
Monday evening. Temperatures will remain near seasonal norms on 
Monday in advance of this front...with highs in the lower to 
middle 60s. 


On Tuesday...deep layer northwest flow should continue across the 
area...with increasing subsidence and drier air advecting back 
into the area. These conditions should allow for mainly clear 
skies to redevelop. The one difference from previous fronts is 
that the airmass moving in is expected to have a Pacific 
origin...thus lacking any true cold pool. This should result in 
temperatures remaining at or slightly above normal in the middle 
to upper 60s. 


Aviation... 


The main issue will be strong west-northwest winds of around 20 
knots with gusts up to 30 knots impacting the terminals through 
around 00z. After 00z...the winds should quickly die off...with 
most areas seeing winds below 10 knots by 06z. Otherwise...clear 
skies will keep VFR conditions in place through the forecast 
period. 32 


Marine... 


Strong offshore winds of 20 to 30 knots will persist over the open 
Gulf waters through tomorrow morning. Closer to shore...winds 
should fall below 20 knots during the overnight hours. Given these 
conditions...small craft advisories are in effect for varying 
times across the coastal waters. The wind field should fall to 
around 10 to 15 knots across all of the waters tomorrow afternoon 
as a surface high settles over the Gulf south and the pressure 
gradient in the northern Gulf relaxes. Seas will also decrease 
from 6 to 10 feet tonight in the open Gulf waters to 4 to 6 feet 
by tomorrow afternoon. The high is expected to push to the east of 
the waters on Thursday...with onshore winds of around 15 knots 
developing and then persisting into Friday. Seas will generally 
range from 2 to 4 feet. A backdoor front should slip through 
Friday night...allowing from northeast winds of 15 to 20 knots to 
develop over the weekend. These winds should also push seas back 
into the 3 to 6 feet range.
