NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
352 am CDT Sat may 30 2015 


Short term... 
pretty unsettled airmass remains in place with large upper trough 
moving through the Mississippi Valley. A rather potent mesoscale convective system with 
vigorous mesoscale convective vortex approaching the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex this 
morning will aid in tightening the onshore flow gradient 
throughout the day with convection forming on convergent streaks 
and enhanced by the Gulf Breeze this afternoon. Broad troughing 
would suggest the impetus of the North Texas complex would move 
through the forecast area tonight...as indicated by the GFS. The 
European model (ecmwf) shows likewise but with a slower timing. Both are in 
agreement in sharpening the trough axis Sunday for more storminess 
with lower local and trigger temperature under cold pool aloft. 
Maximum temperatures may occur later in the day Sunday after some 
recovery from morning convection and residual cloud cover. 


Long term... 
northwest flow regime becomes established...a climatologically 
favored pattern for June and late initiation thunderstorms each 
afternoon. This could be the case Monday and Tuesday as strong 
ridging takes hold in the southwest and much of Texas. This ridge 
breaks down somewhat Wednesday with models indicating a large 
upper low pressure area over the East Gulf /GFS/ or lower 
southeast states /ECMWF/. This particular scenario would favor a 
higher risk for downburst conditions in convection that forms on 
lake and Gulf Breeze boundaries latter part of the week. The 
extended portion is pretty close to allblend of MOS guidance with 
little to no spread in guidance on temperatures. 24/rr 


&& 


Aviation... 
first deck should be in right around dark and should be around 1500 
to 2000ft for coastal locations a little higher inland to about 
3000ft. Low ceilings are expected at all locations tonight and 
should be from 200 to 500 prevailing shortly after midnight. Some 
visible restrictions are expected with the low level ceilings and will 
have visibilities falling to at least 1sm for all inland 
terminals. 


&& 


Marine... 
light east to southeast winds will remain over the coastal waters 
through the forecast. Isolated to scattered thunderstorms will be 
possible each day. Some nocturnal showers should also develop each 
night through middle week.
