Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Public Information Statement  Statement as of 6:12 am CST on March 1, 2015


... Severe weather awareness week in Louisiana...
       ... March 1 through March 7 2015...

The week of March 1 through March 7 has been designated as severe
weather awareness week in Louisiana. Late winter and
Spring months typically bring the highest frequency of severe
weather to Gulf Coast region. Severe weather awareness week is good
time to review severe weather safety plans and ensure you have a
means to receive timely warnings.

Last year was a relatively quiet year with regard to severe weather
across Louisiana. Only 15 tornadoes were recorded while the average
annual number of tornadoes is 37. Last years total of only 15
tornadoes was the lowest total number of tornadoes since 1994 when
only 8 were reported. The most damaging tornado in the state last
year occurred on March 10 when a strong tornado touched down in the
Monroe area and tracked nearly 9 miles resulting in nearly 4 million
dollars in damage. Fortunately there were no injuries or fatalities
associated with any of the tornadoes in Louisiana.

In southeast Louisiana... only four tornadoes were reported. The most
damaging tornado occurred on December 23 when a strong tornado
touched down east of Amite and heavily damaged several homes and
Downing numerous trees along a 6 miles path. The only injuries in
southeast Louisiana from severe weather occurred near Kentwood on
June 24 when severe thunderstorm wind gusts downed a tree onto house
injuring several occupants.

On Wednesday morning around 915am ... the National Weather Service
will issue a test Tornado Warning message on the NOAA Weather Radio
system to allow organizations to test and review their severe
weather plans and ensure their NOAA weather radios are working
properly. The test message will be clearly worded as a test. Many
NOAA Weather Radio may not sound an audio alarm... however they will
display test on their screen signifying they successfully received
the test. If severe weather or hazardous weather is expected on
Wednesday the test message will be rescheduled to a later date.

For more information on severe weather visit the National Weather Service
web site at www.Srh.NOAA.Gov/lix... or contact the National Weather Service
forecast office in Slidell la at telephone number 985-649-0357.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
727 am CST sun Mar 1 2015 


..sounding discussion... 
The sounding this morning depicts an increase in moisture from 12 
and 24 hours ago... precipitable water is 1.16 inches. The lower atmosphere is 
10-15 f warmer than yesterday as well. This is from the southeast 
winds near the surface and return of the marine layer. The profile is 
saturated from the surface to the top of the temperature inversion at 
900 mb. Winds veer from the surface and become westerly above the 
inversion. Peak wind is 105 kts at 180 mb.

Previous discussion... /issued 453 am CST sun Mar 1 2015/ 


Long term... 
the next cold front will be bringing some interesting weather with 
it. We were finally able to get at least a Sample of the jet 
energy that will be responsible for this issue. Looking at radiosonde observations 
over western Alaska where the nose of the 30h jet was moving 
onshore at 00z sun...supported the initialization of the Euro the 
best. The GFS was not far behind though. Timing is about 6 hours 
difference between the two as the Euro is a little slower. This 
makes sense as the main forcing will move into the NE rather 
quickly leaving the shallow very cold air to move into the Gulf. 
The coupling of the polar and subtropical jets will occur over the 
eastpac and stay oriented over the Gulf Coast. This will help 
cause layer lifting over the back side of the cold front bringing 
a good bit of moisture over the shallow cold dome of air. The 
first possibility of any winter weather will be behind the front Thursday 
morning. At this time this area looks to stay just outside of the 
area...but it wouldn't take much of a change in any one variable 
to bring this into the area. The next chance of winter weather will be 
Friday morning as a speed maximum moves through the coupled jet creating 
somewhat better lift from southeast Texas through central Alabama. Temperatures as 
well as timing will have to all fall in line perfectly for this to 
occur. Would like to see at least one to two more model runs with 
a good Sample from radiosonde observations to initialize well before calling for 
this scenario to occur. Confidence will unltimately move higher 
with sucessive well sampled runs. 


Aviation... 
ceilings and fog producing MVFR and IFR conditions will be the 
biggest issue over the next few days. Over the western 
terminals...a few ts could move very close to terminals. Eastern 
terminals should only see shower activity. 


Marine... 
small craft caution statements will remain through middle day today. 
Winds will continue to ease through today. Fog conditions will 
hamper transit through the miss river as well as other main 
canals and structures. Fog may become a problem over near shore 
waters starting Monday and should end once a strong cold front 
brings winds and seas back up by Thursday morning. Will likely 
need a Small Craft Advisory by Thursday as wind speeds my be very 
close to gales...especially on platforms.
