NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
810 am CDT Tuesday Sep 1 2015 


..sounding discussion... 


Low level moisture has created patches of fog reducing visibilities 
across the area to no less than 3 miles in most locations. Above 
this surface moisture...drier air exists until 27000 feet where 
some moistening has occurred due to clouds blowing off from 
thunderstorm cloud tops over southern Texas and the far western 
Gulf of Mexico. We should once again today reach the convective 
temperature around midday...but dry air in the middle-levels along 
with upper level energy remaining to the west should limit 
thunderstorms across the area today. Winds are generally from the 
south or southwest throughout the profile with a peak wind speed 
of 52 knots at 45000 feet. 


12z balloon info: a successful flight lasting 106 minutes 
reaching a height of 20.4 miles above the ground. The balloon 
burst near Folsom 27 miles downrange from the office.

Previous discussion... /issued 353 am CDT Tuesday Sep 1 2015/ 


Short term... 
a quiet night across the County Warning Area as showers and storms stayed over lch 
coastal areas overnight before dissipating. Expect another dry 
day across the forecast area as temperatures rise into the 90s 
today. As stated in previous forecast the area is in sort of a 
lull in activity between two systems. Moisture content starts come 
up from today forward. This should be the last day of the week 
where we are not expecting rainfall. As we go into Wednesday 
through the rest of the week expect a chance of some afternoon 
showers and thunderstorms. 13/mh 


Long term... 
the long range guidance still insists on an upper level trough 
over the southern United States. Again as stated before there will 
be increasing moisture and with the daytime heating we expect 
showers and storms to develop in the afternoon...and in the 
overnight hours showers and storms should develop over the coastal 
waters. Have made only minor adjustments to the forecast and went 
with a consensus of guidance. Expect temperatures to be in the 90s 
through the period. 13/mh 


Aviation... 
VFR conditions are expected through taf pack. Sct040 during the 
morning at a few coastal sites and sct060 by afternoon. Visible 
restrictions should be minor around 5 to 6sm during around sunrise. 


Marine... 
relatively benign conditions for the next several days with a weak 
pressure pattern controlling the weather. A large area of sh/ts are 
expected to move northward over the coastal waters east of the miss 
river Thursday into early Friday. This activity may produce wind gusts to 30 
knots or better at times as it move out of the Gulf. As this 
activity moves inland...conditions will normalize with respect to 
an August pattern of weak wind fields and nocturnal ts. 


Decision support... 
dss code....green. 
Deployed...none. 
Activation...none. 
Activities...none.
