National Weather Service New Orleans la 
102 PM CST Sat Feb 28 2015 


Aviation... 
VFR conditions will prevail through the daytime hours as only few 
to scattered middle and high level clouds possible. IFR to MVFR ceilings should 
redevelop overnight and persist into the middle morning hours Sunday. 
East to southeast winds around 10 knots expected.

.Sounding discussion... 
The sounding this morning is dry and stable. A 12 f temperature 
inversion is present from the surface to 850 mb and there is an 
elevated inversion at 625 mb. Winds are easterly in the inversion 
layer near the surface and become westerly above. The profile is 
saturated only in a broken middle level cloud layer at 120 feet. Peak 
wind is 105 kts at 175 mb.

Previous discussion... /issued 433 am CST Sat Feb 28 2015/ 


Long term... 
return flow picks up Tuesday and Wednesday in advance of the next polar 
cold front. A quick warm up for an intense cooling will provide 
another temperature roller coaster Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Timing 
will be the question with this front as the main forcing moves 
rapidly NE into the New England states. This should cause the 
front to become shallow and buckle in several locations slowing it 
somewhat. Models are not showing this slower solution at this 
time. If slowing does occur...it would put the front through about 
4 to 6 hours later. Will need to watch this systems future 
resolution. The upper jet stays over the Gulf south on the back 
side of the front causing lifting of subsequent lower layers as 
the cold front provides a lot of overrunning moisture to the jet. 
This would not lead to a good day for the Gulf south. Whether that 
takes place here or farther north or at all remains to be 
resolved. The energy responsible for this feature is over the 
north central Pacific. We should see this jet move over Alaska 
later today and maybe the 00z radiosonde observation data will catch a portion of it 
to give US a little better idea of what and where things will take place. 


Aviation... 
clear skies will give way to ovc060 tonight. Winds will be east at 
all terminals. VFR conditions should remain through taf periods. 


Marine... 
winds will remain NE and strong enough for caution statements over 
the nearshore waters...mainly sound areas. Advisories will remain 
through this evening as winds remain around 25 knots. Some easing 
of these conditions will begin this evening and over night. 
Southerly winds providing return flow will start Tuesday as another in 
a line of Canadian cold fronts makes its way to the deep south by 
middle week.
