NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
1003 PM CDT Sat Apr 30 2016 


Update... 
in light of latest guidance and some recent trends...have decided 
to expand the Flash Flood Watch to include the interior sections 
of the parishes south of the tidal lakes...and also run it through 
00z Monday. Updates out shortly. 24/rr 


&& 


Aviation... 
this will be a complicated set of taf issuances in that timing the 
onset of convection will be difficult. Current thinking is having 
some indications for kbtr and kmcb by as early as 14z then 
spreading eastward to include the rest of taf locations by 18z. 
Ceilings will also vary to upper end IFR with marine layer advancement 
overnight then MVFR bases with rainfall...improving to VFR 
generally after 02/00z. 24/rr 


&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 658 PM CDT Sat Apr 30 2016/ 


Update... 
the watch will be allowed to expire at 7 PM CDT for the remainder 
of the area. Adjusted probability of precipitation and weather in the short-term to handle 
current trends. No other changes at this time. 24/rr 


Previous discussion... /issued 424 PM CDT Sat Apr 30 2016/ 


Synopsis... 
latest surface analysis showed a deep 1001mb low over Missouri with 
a cold front extending south southwest to northwest Louisiana to 
central Texas coast. A moderate southerly flow was present over 
southeast Louisiana and southern Mississippi. Precipitable water 
plots showed moisture axis from Upper Texas coast to west 
Tennessee with 1.50 to 1.8 inches this morning. 


Upper air analysis showed two cyclonic circulations...first over 
Nebraska and second over west Arizona...creating a west flow over 
arklatex region...southern and Central Plains. Isotach analysis at 
250mb showed a nearly parallel jets...first Southeast Arizona to 
central Oklahoma and the second Texas Big Bend to west Louisiana. 
18 


Current radar coverage will dictate the first 12 to 18 hours of 
the forecast. Line of storms is expected to race across the 
remainder of the forecast area through this evening. With the 
upper level flow westerly...the progression east of storms has 
been fast. However...rainfall rates are heavy at times. Moisture 
axis will become more west to east this evening and overnight. 
This may slow the progress of the rain across the south half of 
the forecaster area. The moisture axis will drift back north 
across the north half of the forecast area on Sunday. Coverage of 
convection will be widespread this evening....linger overnight 
and redevelop after midnight as the moisture axis drift back 
north. Therefore...extending the Flash Flood Watch through Sunday 
afternoon with second round of storms along the retreating 
moisture axis after midnight through early Sunday afternoon. 


Cape values will remain between 1000 to 2500 j/kg through 
Tuesday. The main jet stream will remain well north of the 
forecast area with southern stream over south Texas and west 
Gulf...creating a distant couplet. With west flow decreasing...ll 
helicity values remain below 150m/S with best values this evening 
across the north half of the area. Will maintain likely probability of precipitation with 
heavy rainfall across north half of forecast for Sunday. This axis 
will become slightly diffuse and sag south midday Monday through 
Tuesday and rain chances will remain elevated through Tuesday. 18 


Long term... 


Middle Range models continue to a wave in the northern stream diving 
south across the Ohio Valley Tuesday. Moisture axis will slowly 
push south of the the remainder of the forecast area Tuesday 
afternoon. This wave will assist the push Tuesday night into early 
Wednesday. GFS shows a second wave pushing through the area 
Thursday and Thursday night but rainfall expected. 18 


Aviation... 
a line of strong thunderstorms are currently moving across the 
forecast area this afternoon. This line of storms is currently 
impacting many terminals with winds up to 40 knots...heavy rain and 
frequent lightning. This is yielding tempo IFR to LIFR conditions 
for terminals as the heaviest portions of the storms move through. 
Outside of the storms expect MVFR to VFR conditions to prevail. 
Kbtr...khdc and khum should see improving conditions this evening 
now through 22z. Kasd...kmsy...knew and kgpt will see the worst of 
their conditions now through at least 0z. Conditions should improve 
slowly after 0z and winds may be slightly elevated. 13/mh 


Marine... 


Will continue exercise caution headlines through the evening hours 
should see some weakening of pressure gradient overnight for 
several days. Front not likely to push through coastal waters 
until sometime around the middle of the week. A stronger front 
will push through the coastal waters later in the week.

Deployed...none. 
Activation...none.
