NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
325 am CDT sun Apr 20 2014 


Synopsis... 
surface high pressure centered near upstate New York with ridge 
axis extending southwestward through the Ohio and Mississippi 
valleys and into the northern Gulf Coast region. Low pressure is 
centered over western Ontario with a cold front extending south 
and southwestward through Minnesota and into northwest Kansas. 


Locally...temperatures currently sitting in the middle to upper 50s 
north and lower 60s south. Dewpoints in the low to middle 50s most 
places with light winds and mostly clear skies. 


&& 


Discussion... 
not much to say that hasn/T been said over the last few days. 
Generally only minor tweaks made to the forecast as model guidance 
remains in fairly good agreement and forecast thinking has not 
changed. 


Deep ridging will dominate the area/S weather for the next few 
days resulting in warm and increasingly humid conditions as 
southeast winds bring in moisture from the Gulf while subsidence 
aloft suppresses convection. Expect afternoon temperatures to top out 
near or just above 80 degrees with morning lows in the middle to 
upper 50s north and in the lower 60s south. 


Ridging will begin to break down on Monday as an upper trough 
moves toward the middle Mississippi Valley...forcing a weak cold 
front toward the local area. Probability of precipitation begin to increase late Monday as 
the front approaches the area...but highest probability of precipitation will be on 
Tuesday as the front actually moves into the area. The front is 
expected to dissipate near the coast. With that said...the temperature 
gradient across the front will be basically nonexistent by the 
time it moves into the local area. 


Deep ridging will again take hold of the region on Wednesday and 
Thursday but will quickly shift eastward as another upper trough 
moves through the middle Mississippi Valley on Friday forcing a 
cold front toward the area. This front is expected to remain 
north of the local area...but could bring some isolated convection 
to southeast la and S MS Friday and Saturday. 


Overall expect temperatures to be near or above normal through 
the entire forecast period. 


&& 


Aviation... 
expect mostly VFR conditions to prevail through this evening. 
The exceptions are kmcb and khum where MVFR category visibilities in 
light fog are expected from about 09-14z Monday morning. 


&& 


Marine... 
high pressure will build over the area today. Winds will shift out 
of the south into early next week as a weak cold front pushes into 
the area by Tuesday night. Winds should remain below 15 knots around 
this frontal boundary. Up until the cold front expect pretty benign 
conditions on the waters. Frontal boundary will dissipate on 
Wednesday and southerly flow will develop over the coastal waters 
Wednesday night.
