NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
348 am CDT Monday Apr 27 2015 


Short term... 
a very active weather regime is expected for the forecast area 
through Tuesday with both a severe weather and heavy rainfall 
threat for the area. Satellite imagery this morning depicted a 
stream of middle and high level moisture extending from the Pacific 
across northern Mexico and into the northern Gulf and Gulf states 
region. Satellite derived estimates of the precipitable water 
indicated values near 2 inches across the north Gulf. This high 
moisture content airmass is expected to push northward into the 
forecast area today in advance of a potent middle/upper level low 
currently spinning over northeast New Mexico. Models forecast that 
this middle/upper low will move slowly east across North Texas and 
the Southern Plains through tonight and into the lower Mississippi 
Valley region on Tuesday. A weak and nearly stationary frontal 
boundary will remain in place across the forecast area through 
Tuesday. An area of low pressure associated with the middle/upper 
level low is forecast to develop along the middle/Upper Texas coast 
today and move eastward along the central Gulf Coast through 
Tuesday night. A strong upper level jet is forecast to remain over 
northern Mexico and the southeast Continental U.S. Through the period with a 
coupled jet structure likely to enhance convection over the lower 
Mississippi Valley and central Gulf Coast region later today and 
tonight. Forecast soundings indicate mainly modest cape through 
the period. However...sufficient instability and considerable 
shear are indicated in the forecast soundings. Helicity values are 
also forecast to be quite high with the frontal boundary draped 
across the area and as the surface low approaches and moves along 
the Gulf Coast. All modes of severe weather will be possible and 
the Storm Prediction Center has indicated an enhanced risk for 
severe thunderstorms across most of southeast Louisiana through 
tonight with a slight risk elsewhere across the forecast area. The 
forecast area has been outlooked for a marginal risk of severe 
weather on Tuesday with the exception of coastal Mississippi and 
extreme coastal areas of southeast Louisiana where a slight risk 
will exist. Rainfall may be heavy in some areas through Tuesday 
morning with a general 2 to 3 inches possible across much of the 
area. Locally higher amounts will be possible. A Flash Flood Watch 
will be issued for the entire forecast area through middle day 
Tuesday. 11 


Long term... 
the weather will quiet down after Tuesday with a deep trough over 
the eastern Continental U.S. Slowly moving off to the east through the end of 
the week. Upper level ridging developing over the plains over the 
last part of the week will flatten and translate eastward over 
southeast during the course of the weekend. Relatively cooler 
conditions locally during the middle and late work week period will 
moderate over the weekend. Any lingering showers across eastern 
sections of the forecast area will depart the region on Wednesday 
with dry weather then forecast through the weekend. 11 


&& 


Aviation... 
expect to see a low stratus deck ranging from 200 to 500 feet remain 
over most terminals through 14z. This deck should break up around 
14z. Some visible restrictions to 1/4sm may occur at several locations 
mainly south of Lake Pontchartrain. The inversion responsible for 
this should begin to erode after 12z. A mix of MVFR and VFR ceilings 
will develop around 14-15z as increased boundary layer mixing 
occurs. After 18z...conditions will begin to deteriorate as 
ceilings fall back into IFR range and numerous showers and 
thunderstorms move into the area. Low level ceilings of 500 to 1000 
feet will begin to move over all terminal locations by afternoon and 
remain overnight. 17 


&& 


Marine... 
a strong line of thunderstorms will continue to move from west to 
east in the outer coastal waters today. This line and further 
development of thunderstorms will move slowly north throughout the 
day. Some of these storms will be severe. A surface low will develop 
near the Texas coastal Bend and move east through the local coastal 
waters Tuesday. This will help shift winds from an easterly and 
southeast direction to northwest. With the low moving east slowly...northwest wind 
speeds will stay elevated through Friday. Return flow on 
southeasterly winds will start once again by next week. 17
