NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
320 am CDT Friday Oct 24 2014 


Discussion... 
high pressure will remain in control of the area/S weather 
through the weekend. The surface high will continue to drift 
southward over the next few days and should be centered near the 
local area by Sunday morning. Low dewpoints and nearly cloudless 
skies will generally allow overnight lows to persist below normal 
for the North Shore and near normal for the South Shore for the 
next couple nights. Afternoon highs...however...will gradually 
warm above normal as upper level ridging builds into the area. 


By Sunday evening...the surface high will begin to shift eastward 
and will result in winds becoming onshore. This will mark the 
start of a very slow return of moisture to the area. Also expect 
temperatures to continue their slow warming trend. Model guidance 
is in fairly good agreement through the first part of next week... 
so a Bland of available guidance seems reasonable. Twill note that 
the mex seems to be a bit too aggressive on afternoon highs for 
the Sunday through Tuesday time frame...when it is actually 
forecasting upper 80s to near 90 degrees. Still used a blend... 
but with a heavier weight on the cooler Euro MOS guidance. 


Moving into midweek...a couple short waves will impact the area. 
The first will drive a cold front toward the coast...but it now 
looks as if this initial impulse will lift northeastward before 
clearing the local area. The front will lose its southward push as 
the upper impulse lifts away...and will stall before reaching the 
local area. A stronger impulse looks to finally push the front 
into and through the area some time late next week...though the 
models continue to struggle with the exact timing. In general am 
carrying only slight chance to low end chance probability of precipitation during the 
Tuesday through Thursday time frame as moisture will still be 
limited even as the fronts approach the area. 


&& 


Aviation... 
VFR conditions with mainly clear skies and excellent visibilities can be 
expected through early Saturday morning. Patchy fog may restrict 
visibility at mcb and hum Saturday morning 10 and 13z. 


&& 


Marine... 
a 1021mb high from northeast Texas to west Tennessee will slowly sag 
southeast through the weekend. As a result...the pressure gradient 
will relax on the land areas and near coastal waters. However...a 
slight pressure gradient over north central Gulf will maintain a 
northeast flow of 10 to 15 knots over the open coastal waters 
through early Sunday. The high will shift toward the eastern 
Seaboard early next week...which will allow winds to shift to the 
east and then southeast by Monday. Winds will generally be near 10 
knots and seas will range from 1 to 3 feet early next week.
