NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
831 am CDT Sat Apr 30 2016 


..sounding discussion... 
The sounding this morning indicates a very warm and moist 
environment below an elevated inversion at 900 mb. Onshore flow 
off the Gulf is 20 to 35 kts just above the surface through this 
layer. The local is low at 400 feet. Drier air is present above to 
about 550 mb. Overall precipitable water is above average at 1.43 inches. Another 
elevated inversion is near 630 mb... where winds begin to turn 
more westerly. Cape is relatively long and skinny through the 
profile with most unstable at 2000 j/kg. Warm cloud layer in a 
storm would be 14000 feet so efficient rainfall processes and flash 
flooding is a concern again today. Surface to 6 km shear is 35 kts... 
that is enough for severe wind to at least be possible with storms 
as well. We expect this environment to allow the mesoscale convective system currently at 
the la/MS border to continue east. The sounding from Lake Charles 
this morning was just ahead of the line. The lch profile has a bit 
more shear and also supports mesoscale convective system maintenance. One last concern for 
today would be the line of storms slowing in southeast la and 
training along a coastal boundary this afternoon... where there 
does appear to be moisture pooled at 925 mb along the Northshore and 
the MS Gulf Coast.

Previous discussion... /issued 400 am CDT Sat Apr 30 2016/ 


Short term... 


A few showers have started to develop over Pointe Coupee and West 
Feliciana parishes this morning and are pushing north and east. 
Continued shower development is possible out ahead of a strong 
squall line moving through the Shreveport area and stretching to 
Lufkin and then north of Houston in eastern Texas. 


Overall...I have elected not to make many changes to the forecast 
update sent out a few hours ago but there are a few additions. The 
main one is a Flash Flood Watch issuance beginning at 12z and 
running to 00z on Sunday. The confidence level of the probability 
of heavy rainfall is higher generally west of I-55 and north of 
I-10 and therefore the Flash Flood Watch has been added. Other 
than that...increased the rain chances today a bit more in the 
eastern part of the area. The hrrr continues to show a squall line 
extending from the aforementioned line developing and moving 
through the area much sooner than expected at this time last 
night. Will continue to monitor and address any changes as needed 
as the timing and intensity of what ultimately moves into the area 
is proving difficult to determine. 


Long term... 


Next best chance of rain continues to be on Tuesday with clearing 
and drying out occurring on Wednesday. 


Aviation... 


MVFR ceilings are widespread across the terminal areas this morning. 
Cannot rule out ceilings dropping into the upper end of the IFR 
category...but winds should remain strong enough to preclude 
significant visibility issues. 


Main forecast problem is timing of convective activity approaching 
from the west. Mesoscale modeling has slowed down timing from what 
the evening shift was looking at. Will need to make adjustments on 
timing with 12z taf package based on latest mesoscale modeling 
solutions. Will try to use about a 2 hour window where thunderstorms and rain will be 
predominant. Based on latest hrrr solution...convection should clear 
most or all terminals by 00z Sunday. Likely to see MVFR ceilings 
again during the overnight hours after 06z Sunday. 


Marine... 


Will continue exercise caution headlines through the daytime hours 
where they are currently in place. Should see some weakening of 
pressure gradient after today for several days. Front not likely to 
push through coastal waters until sometime around the middle of the 
week. 


Decision support... 


Dss code....blue. 
Deployed...none. 
Activation...none. 
Activities...minor river flooding. Monitor convective trends. 


Decision support services (dss) code legend 
green = no weather impacts that require action 
blue = long fused watch/warning/advisory in effect or high 
visibility event 
yellow = heightened impacts with short fused watch/warning/advisory 
issuances; radar support 
Orange = high impacts - slight to moderate risk severe; nearby 
tropical events; hazmat or other large episodes 
red = full engagement for moderate risk severe and/or direct 
tropical threats; events of National significance
