NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
405 PM CST Tuesday Mar 3 2015 


Discussion... 
another warm/humid day on tap for tomorrow before a significant 
pattern shift takes place for the end of the week. Difficult and 
flat out frustrating forecast this cycle trying to determine 
extent of winter weather threat for local area. If I/ve Learned 
one thing over the past few years...it/S that winter weather 
forecasting is not fun. It/S even less fun in the south. 


Tonight and Wednesday... 
expect dense fog to develop again tonight and a dense fog advisory 
has been issued for areas generally along and south of the 
Interstate 10/12 Corridor. North of these areas...fog is not 
expected to be as dense or widespread...but we will monitor the 
observations and extend the advisory if necessary. Warm and 
humid air mass remains in place over the local area with the cold 
front removed to the northwest. Expect scattered showers and 
thunderstorms to develop across the region during the afternoon 
hours. Set up is not all that favorable for severe weather...but 
one or two strong/severe storms can/T be ruled out entirely. Storm Prediction Center 
indicating a marginal risk mainly for areas along and north of a 
line from Opelousas to Zachary to Tylertown. Any thunderstorms 
should come to an end as the instability associated with daytime 
heating decreases in the evening. 


Wednesday night and Thursday... 
overall thinking has not changed much...still looks like a cold 
front will move through the area Wednesday night with a 
significantly colder but shallow air mass moving into the area 
behind it. Latest model guidance suggests front will be a little 
bit slower than previous runs indicated which would also delay 
arrival of colder air. They/re also slower moving the moisture 
out...which means there could still be a window of rain/freezing 
rain/sleet mix for far northwestern zones. At this point the main 
difference from the previous forecast is the timing of that mix. 
With the delay in the arrival of the colder air...it looks like 
the main threat timing would begin around 15z and taper off by 
about 21z. Regarding accumulation...any freezing rain is expected 
to be light and have opted to keep only on hundredth of an inch of 
ice accumulation for far northwestern areas during the late 
morning Thursday. This forecast comes with the major caveat that 
it is a far from clear cut situation. There are some fairly 
significant potential hiccups with this forecast scenario. If the 
cold air arrives sooner than forecast...the threat timing could 
speed up and the area could extend farther south. If the cold air 
arrives later...the threat would be delayed or even removed 
entirely. Similarly....if moisture lingers longer than currently 
forecast...impacts would be greater with potential for additional 
icing. If the moisture moves out faster...the threat would be 
lessened or removed. Suffice to say anyone in or around the 
current expected impact area should closely monitor the forecast 
for any changes. 


Thursday night/Friday morning... 
as if this forecast wasn/T already complicated enough...the GFS 
and sref have decided to add another level of complexity. They are 
both now indicating that a weak impulse could bring overrunning 
precipitation into the area late Thursday night and early Friday morning. 
And this happens with temperatures near or below freezing for much 
of the area. Mav guidance is bold enough to have a pop of 51 
with a low temperature of 30 degrees for kmsy. Problem I see with 
that forecast is that skies are forecast to be overcast which 
means that majority of cooling has to be from cold air advection. 
Agree that there should be some strong cold air advection behind the front...but 
with forecast wind speeds over the lake generally 20 kts or 
less...there should be at least some warming influence from the 
lake. For that reason...am carrying temperatures a few degrees higher 
than guidance across the South Shore of Lake Pontchartrain. Of a 
bit more concern to ME at this point will be areas along the North 
Shore and eastward across the Mississippi coast. In these 
areas...feel that freezing temperatures are far more likely...and 
am including freezing temperatures in the forecast. If any precipitation were to 
still be falling in these areas...it would likely be as freezing 
rain. With uncertainty running high and no support from the 
Euro...NAM...or CMC...have opted to keep these areas dry for the 
time being. Again...anyone in these areas should pay particular 
attention to the forecast and how it evolves over the next couple 
days as this is a low probability...but potentially higher impact 
situation. 


Saturday through Monday... 
lots of disparity in the different model forecast going into next 
week concerning the next system. GFS continues to be the faster 
of the two major models with the Euro being a bit slower. Overall 
forecast is generally a blend of the two with a slight bias toward 
the GFS. 


&& 


Aviation... 
widespread fog is reducing visibilities to one quarter mile or less 
at the terminals is expected again tonight into tomorrow morning. 
Currently MVFR and some VFR conditions are over the area and expect 
ceilings to fall again tonight as fog and status develops. Expect IFR to 
periods of vlifr overnight at terminals and conditions will improve 
as the the sun rises tomorrow morning. 


&& 


Marine... 
another night of dense fog is expected tonight and a dense fog 
advisory has been issued. This fog should mix out during the middle 
morning. Moderate to strong onshore flow will develop during the 
daytime in response to a tightening pressure gradient ahead of a 
cold front. The front will sweep through the waters early 
Thursday...resulting in a period of strong offshore winds of 25 to 
30 knots and seas of 6 to 9 feet in the open Gulf waters. These 
Small Craft Advisory conditions will persist through Thursday 
night. As the surface high settles over the deep south on 
Friday...gradient flow will ease back into exercise caution range 
of 15 to 20 knots. A general northeast wind of around 15 knots 
will remain in place through the weekend as a surface high remains 
parked over the deep south and the pressure gradient over the Gulf 
remains fairly constant. Seas will range from 3 to 6 feet in the 
open Gulf waters during this period.
