NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
422 am CDT Wednesday Jul 23 2014 


Synopsis... 
latest upper air analysis showed a cyclonic circulation over 
southeast Louisiana and a large anticyclonic circulation over 
Colorado. 500 mb temperatures are -8c across the east half of the forecast 
area...a relative cool pocket around and east of the upper level low. 
GFS and Euro initialized a vorticity maximum over southeast Louisiana and 
southern Mississippi. Latest surface analysis revealed a very weak 
pressure gradient from south Texas to South Carolina with a 2mb 
difference. Precipitable water values on a planer view at 12z 
showed the wrap around moisture west edge has made it to Lafayette 
with 1.9 inches at Slidell and 1.5 inches at Lake Charles. 18 


&& 


Discussion... 
with a relaxed pressure gradient...a cool 500 mb temperature aloft and 
elevated precipitable water values in place...convection should develop around sea 
breeze boundaries and in land. The upper level low will shift west 
through today and the dry air entrainment to the low and middle layer 
northerly flow are expected to shift west. Therefore...expected 
scattered storms across the area today and a few strong across 
east central Louisiana west of I-55 and southwest Mississippi. 
Gusty winds from strong thunderstorms will be the main threat 
today. The upper level low will continue to shift west to 
southwest tonight and Thursday. The ridge axis from the upper 
level high out west will provide some drying in the middle layers 
across the forecast. Low level moisture will remain elevated but 
precipitable water values will slowly decrease from 1.8 inches Thursday to 1.5 to 
1.6 inches Friday and Saturday. In addition...500 mb temperatures will rise 
to -6c by then. Some suppressive factors will curtail convection a 
bit Friday through Sunday. However...intense surface heating and 
low level moisture can still yield isolated convection late in the 
day. A few areas may reach the middle 90s for highs Friday through Sunday. 


Next week models still point to an active jet pattern and an upper 
trough that will dig across the the eastern part of the country 
Sunday into Monday. This will result in a cold front being pushed 
into the lower Mississippi Valley and north half of forecast area 
Tuesday through Wednesday. Rain chances will increase along and 
south of the front Monday and Tuesday. 18 


&& 


Aviation...for the most part VFR conditions can eb expected. There 
may be a isolated areas of tempo MVFR visibilities until sunrise but after 
that VFR conditions should rule the day outside of convection. 
Convective coverage should be greater today than yesterday so look 
for most terminals to be impacted by convection around midday and 
through the afternoon. /Cab/ 


&& 


Marine...the marine zones will remain fairly quiet through much of 
the forecast. Most of the time winds will remain at or below 10 kts but 
brief periods of 10-12 kts during the overnight hours east of the MS 
Delta will occur. Seas will generally remain 3 feet or lower. Models 
continue to indicate another rare cold front approaching the coast 
next week. /Cab/
