Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
752 am CDT Wednesday Jul 29 2015 


..sounding discussion... 


The low level atmosphere is characterized by very warm and moist 
air this morning. The 850mb temperature is at 19.3c with the 
925mb temperature at 24.7c. The precipitable water in the column 
is 1.97 inches...which is above normal. With mean storm motion from 
72 at only 2 knots and high precipitable water values...should see some localized 
high rain amounts. Now...much drier air exists above 12000 feet 
and this contributes to the 1340 j/kg downdraft cape. That 
supports the potential for strong wind gusts. Hail threat is 
really limited with the freezing level quite high near 17500 
feet. Winds become from the northwest through 2800 feet...then 
attain an easterly component around 4200 feet through the 
tropopause. A peak wind speed of 31 knots was located at 46200 
feet. 


12z balloon info: there were no issues with the flight this 
morning. The balloon attained a height of 21.2 miles above the 
ground during its 103 minute ascent bursting over Lake Maurepas 43 
miles downrange from the office.

Previous discussion... /issued 309 am CDT Wednesday Jul 29 2015/ 


Short term... 
sh/ts should fire to the east of the area by late morning and 
move west-southwest. This convective pattern should continue into the 
evening. There is a marginal risk of severe ts today and Thursday. 
The main hazards with these will be strong damaging winds...heavy 
rain and lightning. Lightning with these storms may be at a high 
frequency. As should always be the case...when thunderstorms 
approach...move indoors. This scenario should play out the 
remainder of the week. Will need to watch as a weak surface low moves 
into the area from the east. This may be the catalyst for an 
organized area of severe ts to develop somewhere along and west 
of the Mississippi River Thursday by middle to late afternoon. 
Should be able to better fine tune this area over the next 24 
hours. 


Long term... 
the finally departing stacked high will continue to move west 
allowing a long wave trough to slowlly fill behind it causing the 
pattern of sh/ts that we will see today to occur on a daily basis 
into next week. 


Aviation... 
VFR conditions will prevail at the terminals through the taf 
forecast period outside any areas of convection. The best chance for 
convection will be during the afternoon hours at kgpt...kmsy... 
knew...kasd and khum. 11 


Marine... light to occasionally moderate winds varying from 
northwest to southwest will prevail during the period with seas 
running 3 feet or less. A weak cold front will approach the coastal 
waters Friday into Saturday and become stationary near the coast 
over the weekend. Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms 
can be expected during the period. 11 




Decision support...
