NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
1241 am CDT Tuesday Mar 31 2015 


Aviation... 


Currently VFR at all sites except khum where localized fog has 
lowered conditions below field minimums. Surface high over the 
eastern Gulf is producing southwesterly flow across most 
terminals. Question for the overnight hours is whether winds will 
decouple and go completely calm. If this occurs...there will be 
the potential for radiation fog which could lower conditions to 
vlifr. If winds stay up...no fog...very similar to yesterday 
morning. For now...have limited mention of IFR visibilities to 
kmcb...khum and kasd. Any fog that does occur will see conditions 
improve prior to 15z. Beyond 15z...VFR conditions are expected 
during the daytime hours on Tuesday. Any convection that would 
develop would be extremely isolated and not enough areal coverage 
to justify a forecast mention more than 12 hours out in forecast.

Previous discussion... /issued 750 PM CDT Monday Mar 30 2015/ 


.Sounding discussion... 


Nearly dry adiabatic temperature profile from the surface to about 
8000 feet where an inversion is noted. Precipitable water values 
remain around 1 inch this evening as has been the case the last 
few balloon releases. Winds were from the southwest at the surface 
and then rotated around to from the northwest in the midlevels and 
back to from the west in the upper levels. A peak wind speed of 
114 knots was located at 36300 feet. 


00z balloon info: no issues with the flight this evening that 
lasted 100 minutes and traveled 55 miles downrange from the 
office. The balloon attained a height of 20.5 miles above the 
ground bursting over Chandeleur Sound.

Previous discussion... /issued 306 PM CDT Monday Mar 30 2015/ 


Short term... cold front well to the north of the County Warning Area that is 
attempting to move south looks to be stalling and stretching east 
across northern la/MS/al. The upper level trough that this boundary 
is associated with is so far north and moving east so much that 
there will not be enough push for the front to make it to the County Warning Area. 
Thus not expecting much in the way of precipitation the rest of today and 
overnight. Have completely dropped probability of precipitation for tonight and trimmed back 
afternoon probability of precipitation to mainly SW and coastal MS counties. Not very confident 
that any of them will see precipitation. Tuesday and Tuesday night will be 
a continuation of dry and warm period as weak upper level ridge 
tracks east across the Gulf Coast. 


Meffer 


Long term... //previous discussion// the next system of concern 
will be a shortwave trough moving out of the Baja California Mexico region that 
will move east across central/south Texas and adjacent Mexico 
Tuesday night...and then dampen/weaken as it moves into the central 
Gulf Coast region Wednesday night. The models have trended weaker 
with this system as it moves through the forecast area...however the 
European model (ecmwf) still paints fairly widespread light to moderate rainfall 
amounts Wednesday into Thursday while the GFS is drier and more 
sporadic with the areal coverage. The GFS MOS guidance now does not 
show any pop over 10 percent during these periods...however have 
held onto 20 to 30 percent chances for showers and some 
thunderstorms Wednesday into Thursday to maintain forecast 
consistency. 


The westerlies and upper jet stream will be sagging south into the 
Southern Plains and lower Mississippi Valley Friday and Friday night 
as a series of shortwave trough/disturbances move through. This is 
expected to drive a Pacific cold front through the forecast area 
Friday night and early Saturday. The forcing will not be that strong 
and moisture content not that high...so mostly light quantitative precipitation forecast amounts 
from isolated to scattered showers and a few thunderstorms are 
anticipated Friday through Saturday morning with the highest rain 
chance looking to be on Friday night into Saturday morning across 
northern areas. Temperatures are expected to lower to near to 
slightly below normal over the weekend. 


Aviation...latest visible satellite shows well developed cumulus field over 
the entire north central Gulf Coast region. Most ceilings are in the 
3k to 4k foot range. Expect this deck to dissipate around sunset. 
Lower level clouds around IFR/MVFR heights may develop early 
tomorrow morning. Areas with less cloud cover will be more prone to 
fog development. Current winds of 7 to 12 knots will fade this 
evening and overnight to mainly light/variable or even calm. 


Meffer 


Marine...at 08z...surface ridge centered east of the coastal areas 
will remain in place for the remainder of the week. This will result 
in southerly flow with no strong weather systems moving through the 
coastal waters. The overall average wind speed through this period 
will be 10 knots with periods about 5 knots above and 5 knots below 
this. A cold front will swing through Saturday and bring northern 
winds of around 20 knots to the coastal waters.
