NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
832 PM CDT Sat Aug 30 2014 


Sounding discussion... 
there were no problems with the upper air release this evening. 
The 00z sounding indicated that drier air has worked into the middle 
levels. The precipitable water value was 1.97 inches...down from 
2.29 inches in the 12z release this morning. The atmosphere was 
somewhat unstable above a near surface inversion...but less so 
than was indicated in the sounding earlier today. Moderate south 
to southwest winds prevailed from the surface up to about 400 
mb...with generally westerly flow observed above that level. 11 


&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 348 PM CDT Sat Aug 30 2014/ 


Short term... 
showers and thunderstorms are expected to continue through the 
evening hours. These storms have been efficient rain producers and 
even caused some minor flooding in some areas but nothing too 
major over our area. Wind gusts with the deeper convection have 
reached into the 60 miles per hour range but that was an extreme case. The 
atmosphere has been worked over some and we do not expect those 
gusts to get that high this evening. The current radar trends have 
been showing the strong convection weakening some however there is 
more development to the west from Baton Rouge and points south. 
Will have to watch this area through the evening...but we do 
expect the rain to break up some as we go through the night. 
Expect a little less coverage tomorrow we only have a 30 percent 
chance in the forecast tomorrow. 13/mh 


Long term... 
have not made any major changes in the forecast. After this 
system...upper ridging moves back into place over the area for 
most of next week. Expect convection to be mainly afternoon and 
early evening with isolated to low end scattered areal coverage. 
The GFS still wants to show a weakness in the ridge and the European model (ecmwf) 
does not show this. Have continued with the previous thinking in 
keeping the forecast more toward a GFS solution. Temperatures 
should be at or above normal through the forecast period. 13/mh 


Aviation... 
mostly moderate rain showers with embedded thunderstorms will affect all 
taf airports through 23z. Tonight is expected to have much less 
coverage of shra/tsra...so no mention will be included in 
the tafs after 00z. MVFR to VFR conditions will generally prevail 
outside of rain areas...possibly trending toward more widespread 
MVFR late tonight/early Sunday morning due to patchy fog and low 
ceilings. 18 


Marine... 
winds will remain elevated through the early evening hours with 
exercise caution in effect through 7 PM. Ridging will build back 
into the area and southeast winds of 10 to 15 knots 
will be the rule through Wednesday...possibly peaking slightly 
over 15 knots at seas will generally range from 3 to 5 feet...perhaps 
a bit higher over the far west Sunday night...and on the lower 
end on Wednesday.Times Sunday night west of Southwest Pass. 


Decision support... 
dss code...blue. 
Deployed...none. 
Activation...none. 
Activities...slurry support. Monitoring radar. 


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 to high risk severe 
and/or direct tropical threats; events of National 
significance.
