NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
503 PM CDT Thursday Apr 17 2014 


Short term... 


Developing surface low pressure system in the north central Gulf 
of Mexico will move slowly northeast tonight and Friday morning 
before moving across the northeast Gulf towards the central and 
eastern Florida Panhandle late Friday afternoon. Although the low 
pressure system will be fairly weak...the impacts will be higher 
due to the strong pressure gradient between the 1010-1015 mb low 
and a 1040-45 mb high center over the New England area with a 
strong ridge extending southwest with the 1028 mb pressure line 
into northeast Georgia. This will create windy conditions at times 
along the coast...South Shore of Lake Pontchartrain...and 
especially over open water areas offshore. In addition...there has 
been just enough persistence and fetch from stronger east winds to 
push tide levels as much as 1.5 feet above normal along the coast 
of Hancock County and Shell Beach on Lake Borgne. Have issued a 
coastal Flood Advisory for the Gulf facing coast from Hancock 
County to Plaquemines Parish through Friday morning. The greatest 
impact should be now through early evening since the high tide was 
already occurring or will early tonight. The gradient winds will 
continue to push water in even as the tide falls...so the net 
result may be only a slow fall until winds become due northeast 
later Friday morning. 


Regarding rainfall...the area of heavier rain has been staying 
just offshore the south central and southeast Louisiana 
coast and moving more east than northeast...however...the models 
insist a northeast push towards the Mississippi coast and 
especially the Alabama and western Florida Panhandle will occur as 
the potent shortwave trough with two vorticity lobes moves through 
the lower Mississippi Valley and central Gulf Coast region tonight 
and Friday. Some heavier amounts of one to two inches are possible 
from near lower Plaquemines Parish to the eastern Mississippi Gulf 
Coast with moderate amount's around one half inch possible as far 
northwest as Lake Pontchartrain and the lower Pearl River valley. 
Rainfall should remain on the light side across southwest 
Mississippi and adjacent east central/southeast Louisiana. 


Conditions will dry out and clouds will decrease Friday afternoon 
as the low pressure and shortwave move east of the region. Only a 
slight push of cooler air is then expected Friday night with lows 
in the upper 40s north to 50s elsewhere with highs in low to middle 
70s Friday and middle to upper 70s Saturday with low humidity. 


Long term... 


High pressure will generally rule Sunday...then a minor shortwave 
trough will move into the area Monday and Monday night with only 
some clouds and no rain. Tranquil conditions are then expected to 
continue throughout most of next week as the storm track shift 
well north of the Gulf Coast region. Little or no rain is expected 
with temperatures mostly near to slightly above normal. 22/dew point 


Aviation... 


Conditions will deteriorate through tonight and early Friday morning 
with widespread IFR expected /mainly due to low cigs/...with periods 
of LIFR possible. Visibility restrictions of 3-6 miles are also likely 
during rain and also possible where the LIFR ceilings develop. The low 
pressure system over the Gulf will also cause northeast winds to 
rise as high as 20 to 25 knots near knew late tonight and Friday 
morning with 15 to 20 knots possible for a few hours at 
kmsy...khum...and kgpt. Conditions will improve back to VFR with 
clearing skies and diminishing winds Friday afternoon. 22/dew point 


&& 


Marine... 
strong east to northeast winds and elevated seas/waves will continue 
tonight into Friday as a low pressure system gradually gets better 
organized and moves northeast across the north central and northeast 
Gulf of Mexico. The Small Craft Advisory has been extended in space 
and time through Friday afternoon for all marine zones except the 
tidal lakes and far western coastal waters. Widespread rain is 
expected offshore and some of the outer waters may have some strong 
thunderstorms with gusty winds tonight and early Friday. Northeast 
winds are expected to peak in the 25 to 30 knots range late tonight 
and Friday morning across some of the waters east of the 
river...then wind speeds will diminish from west to east Friday 
afternoon and evening with the eastern zones falling below Small 
Craft Advisory criteria Friday evening. Northeast to east winds 
should fall to mostly less than 15 knots over the weekend then 
transition to south and southwest at generally around 10 knots or 
less early next work week as high pressure settles over the north 
Gulf. 22/dew point
