NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
359 PM CDT Monday Jul 28 2014 


Short term... 


An unusually amplified upper level pattern will be the main player 
impacting the weather across the area through Thursday. A strong 
upper level trough will remain fixed over the eastern third of the 
nation...allowing a strong middle-Summer cold front to sweep into the 
area this evening and overnight. The 12z sounding indicates a 
potential for strong wind gusts to generate from any deeper 
convection due to some drier air in the mid-levels...but the overall 
severe threat looks lower than originally thought due to a lack of 
shear and weaker lapse rates aloft. Given the more isolated nature 
of the convective activity this afternoon...have lowered probability of precipitation 
slightly for the evening hours. 


By tomorrow morning...the frontal boundary should be positioned 
along the Louisiana coast. Behind this front...a much drier and 
more stable airmass will build in...with dewpoints falling into 
the middle to upper 60s for areas north of Interstate 10 by 
tomorrow morning. Have kept in some slight chance probability of precipitation for coastal 
Louisiana...including the New Orleans area due to the proximity of 
the frontal boundary and some lingering low level moisture. 


The drier air will continue to advect into the area through 
Wednesday...with dewpoints falling into the upper 50s and lower 
60s by Wednesday afternoon. Precipitable water values will fall to around 1.25 
inches on Wednesday and expect to see overnight lows dip into the 
middle to upper 60s Tuesday night due to the dry air and mostly 
clear skies. 


Wednesday night into Thursday will see another upper level vorticity 
maximum slide down from the plains into the lower Mississippi Valley 
on the back side of the persistent upper level trough over the 
eastern Seaboard. Increasing positive vorticity and moisture 
advection into the area on Thursday will bring additional cloud 
cover and a risk of some isolated afternoon convection to the 
region. 


Long term... 


The vorticity maximum and associated low pressure system and attendant 
front will slide into the forecast area Thursday night and then 
become stalled along the Gulf Coast on Friday as the parent upper 
level trough lifts to the northeast and a weak inverted trough axis 
takes hold over the region. The inverted trough will provide just 
enough lift to spark off scattered showers and thunderstorms near 
the stalled out frontal boundary through the weekend. Have 
increased probability of precipitation to high end chance for each day. 


Given the lack of strong winds aloft over the area beginning 
Friday and persisting through Sunday...storm motions will tend to 
be fairly slow at 5 miles per hour or less. In addition...a deep onshore flow 
regime will pump tropical moisture into the region...pushing precipitable water 
values up to 2 inches or higher across the region. As a 
result...there will be a street flood threat with any of the cells 
that come through. The convection will tend to be diurnal in 
nature with the greatest coverage from late morning through early 
evening when overall instability is maximized. Fortunately...with 
a weak shear profile in place...the threat for severe weather 
will be virtually nonexistent. 


&& 


Aviation... 
main issue is coverage and timing of thunderstorms and rain which remained only 
isolated thus far. Unless coverage increases...it is likely that 
only a few airports will briefly experience rain showers/thunderstorms and rain in the 
vicinity with a lower probability of lower than VFR conditions. Taf 
amendments may be required as late afternoon convective trends are 
established. Otherwise...outside of convection expect VFR conditions 
to continue to prevail through Tuesday. 22/dew point 


&& 


Marine... 


A tighter than normal pressure gradient over the eastern waters 
has resulted in persistent small craft exercise caution 
conditions through the day. This gradient should linger through 
the overnight hours in advance of an approaching frontal 
boundary...and have decided to keep the exercise caution in place 
for tonight. Once the front moves into the coastal waters 
tomorrow...winds will decrease to around 10 knots and shift to a 
more northerly component. The front will wash out over the coastal 
waters by tomorrow night...with a more variable wind regime taking 
hold on Wednesday. Another frontal boundary and low pressure 
system will then approach on Thursday...allowing winds to shift 
back to the south. This front will stall along the Gulf Coast on 
Friday and linger through the weekend. Winds will be southerly 
over the Gulf coastal waters in advance of this front...but winds 
will be more variable over the tidal lakes and sounds.
