NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
409 PM CDT Friday may 22 2015 


Synopsis... 


A middle/upper level ridge has settled over the lower Mississippi 
Valley between troughs near the Pacific coast of Mexico and the East 
Coast. Surface map indicated a stalled frontal boundary over the 
north Gulf of Mexico including the Louisiana coastal waters. In 
addition...a 1025 mb high was centered over the middle Mississippi and 
lower Ohio Valley with surface pressure values of about 1021 mb over 
the forecast area with temperatures in the upper 70s in the lower 
80s and dewpoints in the 60s. The only precipitation on radar was a 
few showers over the offshore coastal waters...and the cumulus field 
is only slowly building over western portions of the forecast area 
since the only effective instability is south of the frontal 
boundary. 


Discussion... 


A few showers could still develop over areas southwest and west of 
New Orleans late this afternoon and evening...otherwise mainly dry 
conditions should hold through Saturday morning. The high pressure 
area will shift east on Saturday resulting in return flow with 
southeast winds and gradually rising dewpoints and low level 
moisture. Precipitable water /pw/ values are expected to rise to 
near 1.75 inches with greater instability over the far western areas 
with lower 1.35 to 1.5 inch precipitable water over the east. Have restricted 
the slight chance to chance pop of showers and thunderstorms to 
areas generally west of I-55 mainly Saturday afternoon. 


Sunday and the rest of the forecast period next week will have 
elevated chances of showers and thunderstorms in the forecast. 
The main low/trough will track west across The Rockies Sunday and 
over the plains Monday. Moisture will pool ahead of the trough 
axis over the Southern Plains. The close proximity and open 
Gulf along with minor disturbances in southwest flow will yield a 
good chance of rain on Sunday and likely rain chances each day 
across most of the area Monday and Tuesday and the western and 
central areas on Wednesday. Trough will remain over the plains 
but not as sharp latter part of next weak. Moisture will remain 
across the area. Therefore...rain chances will decrease into lower 
chance ranges Thursday and Friday of next week. The 7 day quantitative precipitation forecast 
forecast from wpc over the forecast area ranges from about 1.5 
inches over the far northeast to 3 to 4 inches south and 
southwest. 22/dew point 


&& 


Aviation... 
most of the local terminals are reporting VFR conditions this 
afternoon. Exceptions are the two westernmost terminals...kbtr and 
khum...where occasional MVFR ceilings are occurring. Questionable 
how much eastward these clouds would move tonight. Anticipate that 
most areas should remain VFR. With lower dew points in place...fog 
should not be much of an issue at most terminals. Exception might be 
khum where dew points are a little higher...and even 
there...probably only MVFR visibilities. As onshore flow returns...likely 
to see some clouds develop near 850 mb...fl050...by late morning 
Saturday. 35 


&& 


Marine... 


Winds have relaxed to around 15 knots over the open waters...and do 
not anticipate any exercise caution headlines in the afternoon 
package. Winds generally around 10 knots until moderate onshore flow 
re-establishes late tomorrow afternoon or evening. A fairly lengthy 
period of winds around 15 knots over the open waters from Saturday 
night into Tuesday or Tuesday night...so headlines may be required 
upon occasion if winds persist much above 15 knots. Convection will 
also come a little more into play beginning on Sunday...but moreso 
Monday and Tuesday. 35
