NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
441 am CDT Friday Oct 31 2014 


Discussion... 
a quiet and cool morning can be expected this morning before a 
reinforcing shot of cold air is scheduled to push into the 
forecast area later on this afternoon and evening. You will know 
when the colder drier air moves in as winds will significantly 
pick up this afternoon and last throughout the night especially 
along and south of the lake and into the coastal waters. This is 
in response to high pressure building into the area and a 
developing low along the middle Atlantic coast. This tightening of 
the pressure gradient will not only increase our winds but is the 
driving force pushing the cold Canadian air southward that is 
could possibly bring the first freeze of the season this weekend. 
With all of that being said...a Wind Advisory has been issued for 
areas along and south of Lake Pontchartrain starting this 
afternoon and lasting throughout the night into early Saturday 
morning. 


The coldest night of the season so far looks to be on tap 
for Saturday night/Sunday morning as the high settles over the 
forecast area. All guidance still points to a potential freeze for 
areas north of Lake Pontchartrain. With the high over the 
area...clear skies and a chance for our winds to decouple or go 
calm sets the stage for radiational cooling process to occur. 
Temperatures should not have a problem dropping into the middle to 
low 30s...the question remains just how low do they go and how 
long. Right now expecting the window for freezing temperatures to 
be short...however there is a real chance that a freeze warning 
could be needed if the window of freezing temperatures exceed 2 to 
3 hours. This will have to be watched in future updates. 


The surface high will shift east on late Sunday into Monday and 
that will allow temperatures to moderate. Temperatures will 
rebound nicely on Monday as winds will shift to the southeast 
Monday allowing for return flow out of the Gulf. After that the 
next chance of rain looks to be sometime on Wednesday or sometime 
shortly there after...the reason that is being said that way is 
because guidance is struggling to resolve multiple players on the 
field in the long range. All models point to a slow moving 
elongated front approaching the forecast area Wednesday...but the 
interesting thing is this front interacts with a tropical low that 
is well south into Mexico. This tropical feature traverses Mexico 
along the front and winds up in Texas late Wednesday. Needless to 
say all of this needs to be watched as all major models...at least 
these runs...point to the scenario playing out but with different 
timing and progression. Have not made many changes in the long 
range forecast due to the uncertainty. 13/mh 


&& 


Aviation... 
the only weather concern for tafs over the next 24 hours 
will be winds. As a reinforcing shot of cold air dives down into the 
region winds will increase out of the north late this afternoon and 
through the evening. Strongest winds will be along the southshore of 
the lake impacting knew and kmsy. /Cab/ 


&& 


Marine... 
a reinforcing shot of cold air is on the way and will 
begin to push into the region this afternoon. This will lead to winds 
ramping back up quickly late this afternoon and more so this evening and 
overnight. Winds will eventually become sustained near 25 kts over 
much if not all of the coastal waters. With that will go ahead and 
issue a scy for all of our waters beginning at 21z. Cold air advection will 
continue overnight and then slack off as we move into Sat. The 
pressure gradient will still be tight through the morning Sat but 
should start to weaken during the afternoon and winds will finally relax. 
Waves/seas will respond to the increase in winds and could top out 
around 8-9 feet in the outer waters and right at the mouth of the 
river. Winds will back off enough for headlines to drop by Sun 
morning and should remain around 15 kts or less through sun and into 
Monday but as high pressure quickly shifts east onshore will commence 
and winds look like they will start to pick back up. /Cab/
