NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
406 am CDT Monday may 2 2016 


Discussion... 
active weather pattern will persist for another day as a cold 
front slowly moves into and through the area. Expect convective 
coverage to increase throughout the morning and afternoon hours 
with 80 percent or better probability of precipitation most places by this afternoon. 
Concerning quantitative precipitation forecast...area averages look to be one inch or less...but 
isolated higher amounts will certainly occur under the heavier 
storms. 


With precipitable water values forecast to be in excess of 1.75 inches...which is 
about 75 percent higher than normal for this time of year... 
efficient rain rates could result in a quick 1 to 2 inches of 
rain falling. This could easily lead to ponding of water in low 
lying areas and areas of poor drainage. If the storms linger over 
any given area...flash flooding would become more likely given 
recent rains. Have kept Flash Flood Watch unchanged from previous 
issuance...in effect for all of southeast la and S MS to the west of the 
Pearl River. Barring some change in thinking...this should be the 
last period requiring the watch since heaviest quantitative precipitation forecast really begins 
to taper off this evening. 


Threat of severe weather appears marginal at best. Main concern is 
that the passing shortwave along with the added surface forcing 
along the front could enhance a few thunderstorms. In any 
case...can/T rule out an isolated strong to severe storm or two 
with primary threats being large hail and damaging wind gusts. 
Timing would most likely coincide with the passage of the 
shortwave...which looks to be during the afternoon and early 
evening hours. 


Front will continue to move slowly through the area tonight with 
lingering showers and thunderstorms. By Tuesday night...any lingering 
showers should be confined to the Gulf waters as the front moves 
farther off shore. 


Behind the front...cooler and drier air will filter into the area. 
Expect to see overnight temperatures drop below normal across much of 
the area for a few nights. Coolest night currently appears to be 
Thursday night with temperatures in the low to middle 50s for the 
northern half of the area and middle 50s to lower 60s for the 
southern half of the area. Afternoon temperatures will be near or 
slightly below normal. Surface high begins to shift eastward 
over the weekend...with a gradual warming and moistening trend. 


&& 


Aviation... 
low ceilings will gradually lift through the morning...but periodic 
restrictions are expected throughout the day associated with 
widespread showers and thunderstorms along and ahead of a slow 
moving cold front. Strongest storms will also be capable of 
producing a few gusts as high as 25 to 30 knots...but probability 
at any given terminal remains low. 


&& 


Marine... 
winds will remain generally from the south today as a slow moving 
cold front approaches the area from the north. The front should move 
into the coastal waters by this evening and high pressure will build 
over the area Tuesday through Friday. Behind the front expect the 
winds to shift to north and northwest and increase 10 to 15 knots 
near shore and 15 to 20 knots offshore through middle week.
