NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
327 PM CST Sat Jan 31 2015 


Short term... 


Retreating surface high pressure area and southwest flow aloft in 
advance of slow moving northwest Mexico/Baja California cutoff low will allow 
the atmosphere to moisten up over the next 12 to 18 hours. It is 
expected to remain dry through at about midnight tonight...and 
temperatures are not expected to fluctuate much as clouds thicken. 


A strong northern stream shortwave trough over the northern rockies 
will continue to dive southeast into the Central Plains late tonight 
and Sunday morning...and across the middle/lower Mississippi Valley by 
Sunday night. This will lead to surface low development over the 
Central Plains tonight with the surface low deepening as it moves 
east across the middle Mississippi Valley and Ohio River valley Sunday 
into Sunday night while driving a cold front into the central Gulf 
Coast region Sunday night. At the same time a piece of energy will 
break off of the Baja California low and move into the lower Mississippi Valley 
Sunday. Precipitable waters  will increase from the dry 0.34 from this mornings lix 
sounding to 1.25-1.3 inches overnight tonight. Showers are expected 
to move in and develop over the region late tonight into Sunday 
morning...then showers are even more likely during the late morning 
and afternoon on Sunday. In addition...a few embedded thunderstorms 
will be possible by late Sunday afternoon and evening as there will 
be a little instability to work with. 


Rain is expected to come to an end after midnight Sunday night as 
the cold front starts to push into the region. Much colder and drier 
air will work into the area Monday with a fairly chilly day in store 
Monday. H925 temperatures drop to around -1c to 3c across the County Warning Area and this 
would yield highs only getting into the middle/upper 40s to lower 50s 
across the region. 


A quiet and cold night will be store Monday night as the surface 
high moves right over the region. Clear skies...dry air...and 
rather light winds should set the stage for decent radiational 
cooling conditions and we could see a light freeze for much of 
the northern half of the area by Tuesday morning. 


Long term... 


The surface high will shift east with return flow setting up. The 
Baja California low which by late Monday would have dug towards the southern 
portions of the Baja California will finally begin to lift out across Mexico 
and into southern Texas late Tuesday night into Wednesday. A surface 
low will develop over the northwestern Gulf at the same time and traverse 
across the northern Gulf Wednesday and Thursday. The old Baja California low will 
continue to weaken and open up as it moves into the lower MS valley 
Wednesday and Wednesday night. This will lead to high rain chances 
Wednesday and early Thursday. Light rain could begin as early as Tuesday 
afternoon but will likely hold off for the most part until Tuesday 
night. Main difference between models now is a secondary shortwave 
system that may move southeast across the lower Mississippi Valley 
and central Gulf Coast late Thursday and Thursday night. The GFS is 
stronger and produces some light precipitation in the cold air while 
the European model (ecmwf) is much weaker with the shortwave and dry. 


Temperatures will be below normal through the forecast but outside of 
Tuesday morning they will not be significantly below normal. 22/dew point 


&& 


Aviation... 


VFR conditions will prevail through at least 06z Sunday at all 
terminals. Cloud cover will increase tonight and slowly lower to 
MVFR levels by daybreak for most terminals. Showers begin to develop 
after sunrise...with best coverage in the afternoon and evening as a 
cold front approaches the area. Only isolated thunderstorms 
expected...so will leave mention out of tafs at this time. 


&& 


Marine... 


Exercise caution headlines will remain in place for all of the outer 
Gulf waters as well as the inner Gulf waters closer to the mouth of 
the Mississippi River. In these areas...moderate to strong winds of 
15 to 20 knots can be expected. Headlines may need to be extended 
into the first part of Sunday for some of these areas. Winds will 
briefly relax Sunday afternoon as a cold front approaches...and will 
then shift to the northwest and strengthen Sunday night as high 
pressure builds in behind the front. Small craft advisories will be 
necessary beginning some time Sunday night and lasting through at 
least the first part of Monday afternoon. Surface high pressure will 
become centered closer to the area by Tuesday allowing winds and 
waves to ease a bit. High pressure will quickly slide east on 
Wednesday as a surface low develops and tracks through the northern 
Gulf. A stronger easterly flow will resume as a result on 
Wednesday.
