NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
426 am CDT Friday Apr 25 2014 


Short term...quiet night with mainly just clouds over the region. 
Fog has not been an issue and so far convection has remained out of 
the region. 


The weak cold front will continue to push into the County Warning Area this morning 
and try to make it to the coast late today. Drier air will work in 
with dewpoints dropping into the 50s over the northern half of the County Warning Area. 
This along with mostly clear skies and light winds should yield a 
cool comfortable night tonight. Quickly going back to today even 
with the front we should remain dry as there will be no real ll 
convergence along with rising hghts rise over the region. 


The front will quickly retreat back to the north Sat as a warm front 
and deep tropical air will surge into the region during the day Sat. 
Heading into sun we could start to see a increase in rain 
chances. Deep trough will come in onshore out of the Pacific Sat and by 
early sun a deep cyclone will take shape over the southern rockies 
leading to SW flow aloft. This will send a few impulses across the 
region and with the increasing moisture scattered rain showers and thunderstorms and rain...mainly 
across the northwest will be possible. Both the GFS and European model (ecmwf) suggest at 
least one noticeable impulse but the bulk of our weather will hold 
off until the work weak. /Cab/ 


Long term...Monday and Monday nights forecast is a little tricky and 
could range from little convection to significant severe weather. The 
deep cyclone over the Lee of The Rockies will continue to slide 
slowly east into the plains through Monday night. This will put our 
region under persistent SW flow aloft providing broad lift and 
sending multiple yet subtle impulses across the area. At the surface a 
deep broad area of low pressure will develop in the plains with a 
second weaker area of low pressure over the Southern Plains. This second 
area of low pressure will be a feature that could have significant 
implications on Mode. The models are suggesting that it will move 
into the arklatex region and deepen some which will lead to surface 
winds backing over the lower MS valley. That said the cold front 
will remain well off to the west even by Tuesday morning. This will 
lead to a lack of a feature to focus convection on relying on the 
subtle impulses that come across the area. Timing these are difficult 
enough within 12 hours and 4 days out is just not really feasible so 
will not provide great detail in timing at this moment and will 
indicate rain showers and thunderstorms and rain possible during the day and overnight. 


As for the severe potential this is tricky. Neither the GFS or European model (ecmwf) 
show strong forcing coming across the region. The best dynamics 
remain off to our north and the forcing as mentioned earlier is 
subtle. Middle level winds arent necessarily that impressive over our County Warning Area 
but do approach 45-50 kts over the northwestern 3rd/half of the County Warning Area. Upper 
level winds are even less impressive but there will be divergence 
aloft. At first glance the kinematic field is not too favorable 
early Monday but improves late in the afternoon and evening. Shear 
increases significantly during that time as that earlier mentioned 
area of low pressure moves into the arklatex. 0-3km srh jumps up to 
at least 200 and peaks out around 350 m2/s2 near mcb. 0-1km does 
the same ranging from near 200 at btr to just under 300 m2/s2 at 
mcb. 0-6km bulk shear ranges from 45-55kts. Again the greatest 
shear resides in the northwestern half of the County Warning Area...mainly late Monday afternoon 
and during the evening hours. Now on the other end of the spectrum is 
the impressive thermodynamic field. If the models are correct and 
with it being late Apr instability will not be an issue. MLCAPE 
could approach 3000 j/kg with showatlers near -6c in the northwestern 
half of the County Warning Area. Middle level lapse rates will range from 6.25-7 c/km. 
Some of the combined instability and shear parameters are rather 
impressive for our area. The sig severe parameter approaches 
50000(60000 on the gfs) which is quiet rare here. Sig tornados 
parameter is as high as 3.5 and anything over a 1 is sufficient 
and the 0-1km ehi approaches 2.5 m2/s2...greater than 1 is 
sufficient. Only other thing is the synoptic field. Middle level 
hghts...thickness values...and surface pressure are all favorable. 
So with that said what can we expect. The biggest problem is a 
lack of a surface focus and lack of strong dynamics. So we will rely 
on any type of mesoscale feature/bndries and subtle lift but if 
thunderstorms and rain can develop over the area they could become severe quickly over 
the northwestern 3rd of the County Warning Area with all modes of severe weather possible. 


As for Tuesday the severe potential doesnt end. There will be a break in 
activity but during the day Tuesday lift will actually be far greater 
with much better middle level forcing coming across the region. We will 
still be in a highly unstable environment and with increasing lift 
scattered to num rain showers and thunderstorms and rain some strong to severe possible. 


Rain doesnt come to an end on Tuesday as the deep cyclone slowly work 
east across the plains twrds the Great Lakes. That said it will 
dominate much of the central and eastern Continental U.S. And the cold front wont 
actually make it to the coast till sometime Wednesday leading to more rain showers 
and thunderstorms and rain Tuesday night and Wednesday. Things should finally dry up some and 
cool off Wednesday night and Thursday. /Cab/

Aviation... 
MVFR ceilings are moving across the forecast area early this 
morning. Although not as likely as previously thought... its still 
possible for IFR ceilings to develop during the early morning hours 
along with some patchy light fog. Radar shows rain is mostly north 
and south of the area so not going to have any mention of precipitation in 
the tafs. Conditions will transition into the VFR category during 
the middle and late morning hours. Northwest winds will develop 
for a period of time Friday over at least the northern half of the 
forecast area as a weakening in cold front settles toward the 
central Gulf Coast. Wind speeds will not be very impressive at less 
than 10 knots. 


Meffer

Marine... 
a northern stream trough is currently bringing a weak cold front 
into the area. It appears the boundary will dissipate by the time it 
reaches the coastal waters midday. Weak wind field will continue 
along with seas around a foot. Going into Saturday and beyond the 
winds/seas will be on the increase as the pressure gradient tightens 
due to surface low developing in the Southern Plains. Exercise 
caution conditions could exist as early as Sunday and persist 
through Tuesday. Borderline small craft winds possible during the 
middle of this event. Front still expected to move into the coastal 
waters early Wednesday morning but models now indicating a weaker boundary 
than previous runs. It will gradually sag southward into the Gulf on 
Wednesday.
