NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
354 am CDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 


Short term...it was a mostly quiet day yesterday a few rain showers broke 
out but overall it was dry. Things have remained quiet overnight 
with temperatures generally ranging from the lower to middle 70s by 7z. 


Rain looks to return today and there is some indication that there 
may be some decent rain in spots today...mostly west of the 55 
corridor. Moisture is already slowly increasing and there will be a 
belt of ll moisture streaming north-northwest across the western half of the County Warning Area 
today. This belt will provide some ll convergence and is already 
evident to our SW as rain showers activity has picked up in the Gulf just 
off the southwestern la coast. As this area moves over our County Warning Area a weak 
impulse will also approach the region currently moving through The 
Big Bend region of Texas. This should lead to scattered convection this 
afternoon across much of the County Warning Area west of the Pearl River with the 
highest probability of precipitation around the btr metropolitan. 


Not much has changed in the thinking for Thursday and Friday. The l/west trough 
moving across the plains will sharpen and continue to slide east. SW 
flow aloft will increase over the region with greater broad scale 
lift in place on Thursday. Combine that with abundant moisture and broad 
divergence aloft we will likely see scattered to possibly numerous rain showers 
and thunderstorms and rain Thursday. Convection will likely taper off some Thursday evening but 
after midnight things will begin to pick back up as our cold front 
front approaches. 


Our l/west trough over the central Continental U.S. Will continue to push east with 
the trough axis approaching the MS valley overnight Thursday driving our 
cold front into the middle and lower MS valley well before sunrise Friday. 
This front will have ample forcing and could reach the coast by 
midday/early afternoon Friday. Rain showers and thunderstorms and rain will have little trouble 
developing ahead and with the front with some lingering light rain showers 
immediately behind the front. After frontal passage much colder and 
drier air will quickly be on its heels. Still not overly impressed 
with the strong/severe potential. There will be some instability to 
work with and the middle level flow is a tad better with 500 mb winds near 40 
kts. Shear will not be substantial until after frontal passage. 
Ahead of the front 0-6km bulk shear only approaches 20kts. 
Directional shear is also lacking with winds trying to go 
unidirectional before 18z. Middle level lapse rates continue to be rather 
shallow at or below 6 c/km and Vermont will only be around 24-25c. Again 
cant rule out a rogue strong/severe storm or two but overall not 
impressed with the severe potential with this system. The locations 
with the greatest risk of seeing any strong storms is along and northwest 
of a line from Baton Rouge to Franklinton. /Cab/ 


Long term...nothing has really changed in the extended portion of 
the forecast. The medium range models continue to show very pleasant 
autumn weekend in store. Models continue to trend a tad cooler with 
the European model (ecmwf) still the coldest. Again will use a blend of the models but 
will give a little more weight to the European model (ecmwf) given the trends. 


Heading into Friday night and this weekend look for our first real 
taste of autumn. Strong cold air advection overnight Friday and the models have 
come in a little stronger and faster with this. This cold air advection will 
overcome any mixing from winds and should cool things off 
impressively with lows Sat morning likely ranging from the middle 50s 
in southwestern MS to middle 60s along the coast. If the front is any faster 
then lows could be a few degrees cooler. That said look for Sun 
morning to be the coldest morning since middle may. As for highs on 
Sat...h925 temperatures of 15c would suggest highs struggling to get out of 
the 70s!!! combine that with rather breezy conditions for much of 
the day and rather decent mixing should help keep highs in the middle 
70s for much of the area. 


Now looking at Sat night...dewpoints are expected to drop into the 
lower 40s if not the 30s across the region and Sat night optimal rad 
cooling conditions could set up. There are some timing differences 
b/T the models with respect to the surface high but it looks like it will 
sit right over the region that night providing rather light winds. 
Skies should be clear and ll temperatures will not be warming yet and all 
of this would be great for rad cooling potential. If the surface high 
pushes east a tad faster than we may start to see return flow in the 
ll which could Hurt lows but the other limiting factor could be 
ground moisture. If we overachieve with the rainfall on Friday then 
there could still be enough moisture to Hurt the cooling potential. 
As mentioned earlier the trend from all of the mlds has been to go a 
little cooler with each model run and this has been the case for 4 
days now. See no reason to disagree with this and have dropped lows 
another few degrees in the forecast. The European model (ecmwf) has been the most bullish 
and actually shows middle 40s in southwestern MS and some locations of sela 
along the 10/12 corridor (45 to be exact in mcb and asd). Still not 
going to go that low but will show upper 40s and right at 50 for 
some areas. European model (ecmwf) gui actually shows the coldest reading of 42 at 
pql and this would be thanks to cold air drainage in the Pascagoula 
river basin. 


Temperatures begin to moderate sun but we will still be on the cool side 
for highs sun and lows Monday morning. Another weak reinforcing front 
looks to try to approach the region middle week. /Cab/

Aviation... 


Patchy light fog is likely through 13-14z at all taf sites...a few 
points...mcb...asd...bxa and hdc may experience IFR conditions with 
visibility and ceiling restrictions through 12z. Moisture surge today will 
bring some MVFR ceilings along with isolated to scattered rain showers/thunderstorms and rain 
mainly west of Lake Pontchartrain. Have maintained prob30 statement 
for thunderstorms and rain during the later morning into the afternoon and will 
convert to tempo btr...mcb and btr. 18 


&& 


Marine... 


Light east to southeast flow will prevail today through early 
Friday. This flow will increase tonight into Thursday as the 
pressure gradient increases between a departing high over the 
eastern Seaboard and developing low in the plains. A strong cold 
front will push across the coastal waters late Friday afternoon into 
Friday evening. 1000 to 700mb thickness layers will hover around 
3045m before the frontal passage. Strong cold air advection after 
the front will allow layers to drop to 2990m by Saturday 12z and now 
GFS holds the this layer through through Sunday morning...similar to 
Euro. GFS has the surface high over the lower Mississippi Valley 
while Euro has the high over central Texas coast. Boundary layer 
winds of 23 to 25 knots will mixed down 100 percent to sea surface 
Friday night through Saturday morning. As a result...a Small Craft 
Advisory headlines will likely be needed for all coastal waters 
Friday night into Saturday. 18
