NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
355 am CST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


Discussion... 
clouds have finally moved out of the area and temperatures have 
really dropped this morning under clear skies. Temperatures this 
morning have dropped to below freezing across portions of the 
Northshore and middle 30s south of Lake Pontchartrain. Expect a 
beautiful day across the area as another cold front should quickly 
move through the area later on today into tonight. This feature 
can be seen well on the infrared imagery this morning over the Central 
Plains. This front will only serve as a reinforcing shout of cold 
air as there is no moisture to work with over the area. High 
pressure then builds in over the area for the rest of the week as 
a slight warming trend starts and continues through the weekend. 
Temperatures will rebound back into the 70s by Sunday. The high 
slides east by the beginning of next week and that will allow for 
some moisture to return and model guidance is hinting at some sort 
of boundary or front north of the area that could serve as enough 
lift to kick off a few afternoon showers. So will carry a slight 
chance for some showers starting Tuesday afternoon. Guidance is 
not really consistent on the next major rain chance but it looks 
to favor sometime after the middle of next week. 13/mh 


&& 


Aviation... 
VFR conditions are expected at all terminals today. Another surge of high 
pressure will enter the region tonight to bring an increase in north 
winds and higher gusts at knew mainly after 27/06z. 24/rr 


&& 


Marine... 
re-enforcing surge of cold high pressure will be building into the north 
Gulf tonight with winds increasing due to renewed cold air advection over 
relatively warmer waters. Will Post a Small Craft Advisory to go into 
effect at 6 PM CST for the near shore waters east of the MS river and after 
midnight for the outer coastal waters. Will indicate 'exercise caution' 
conditions on Lake Pontchartrain and western coastal waters for tonight. 
High pressure then stays parked over the Gulf states while slowly moderating 
through late Saturday. Some return flow ahead of next frontal system gets 
underway Sunday. 24/rr
