NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
427 am CDT Monday Apr 21 2014 


Synopsis... 
latest surface analysis showed a ridge axis from the Middle Atlantic 
States to north central Gulf of Mexico. Surface dewpoint readings 
have rebounded over the weekend with values from 58 to 63 across 
the west zones down to 52 to 57f across the east zones. Upper air 
analysis and infrared satellite imagery showed a short wave over the 
Central Plains. Isotach analysis at 250mb showed a jet maximum near 75 
knots on the front side of the wave axis from central Texas to 
central Arkansas and sub-tropical jet stream from just south of 
Baja California California to south Texas to Florida Peninsula. This 
positioning of jets creates a divergence area aloft just west of 
arklatex region. Precipitable water values at 00z on a planer view 
revealed The Wedge of dry values from Ohio Valley to central Gulf 
with values from 0.5 to 0.85 inch and a swath of moisture 1 to 1.4 
inches from west Gulf to central Texas coast to central Oklahoma 
to western Missouri...mainly ahead of the short wave. 


&& 


Short term... 
for Monday and Tuesday...the approaching short wave will be the 
main weather maker for the next 48 hours. With dewpoint temperatures 
increasing to the 60s today and tonight...ambient temperatures and 
dewpoints will meet rather quickly across the north half of zones 
this evening. Cloud cover is expected tonight and could hamper fog 
development from becoming widespread for long duration tonight but 
cant rule a few areas experiencing patchy dense fog at times early 
Tuesday morning. Will insert patchy fog for now across the north zones. 
Short wave over the Central Plains will move east to southeast 
today through Tuesday and remain positively tilted. This will 
place the slight divergence area over the north half zones on 
Tuesday but slight to none veering winds will be present from surf 
to 700mb before the wave. Moisture axis will move east also with 
1.4 inches over the north zones Tuesday morning ... south 
zones Tuesday afternoon. Some surf base and middle layer instability 
will be present with cape values increasing up to 1500j/kg. 
Ergo...convection will be present but wave will become stretched 
and weaken as it moves east today and Tuesday and severe storms 
are not anticipated on Tuesday. The associated front will push 
into the forecast area late Tuesday afternoon and approach/clear 
the land area by 12z Wednesday. 




Long term... 
Wednesday through the weekend...the frontal boundary will 
Wednesday afternoon/night and high pressure will settle over the 
East Gulf creating a weak south flow over the area by Wednesday 
night. Another storm system over the North Plains and surface 
front over the plains will quickly yield a south flow from the 
central Gulf to the middle Mississippi Valley. This system will not 
approach the area but the next system...farther south track...will 
tap deeper moisture across the central Gulf and create a slight rain 
chance over the weekend. 


&& 


Aviation... 
skies have been mostly clear until the last few hours when a patch 
of LIFR clouds developed from near btr to mcb. Otherwise...few 
impacts to terminals at this time with light to near calm winds. 
This may lead to some patchy fog around sunrise...so have included 
4sm br at a few taf airports for a few hours during 10-14z. VFR 
conditions are then expected to prevail from middle morning through the 
evening on Monday as a middle level cloud deck develops. 


Meffer 
&& 


Marine... 
high pressure will build over the area today as the ridge tracks 
west towards the western Gulf of Mexico. Winds will shift out of the 
north Tuesday night as a weak cold front pushes through. Winds 
should remain below 15 knots around this frontal boundary. Up until 
the cold front expect pretty benign conditions on the waters. 
Frontal boundary will dissipate on Wednesday and southerly flow will 
develop over the coastal waters Wednesday night as the surface high 
shifts back east. Onshore flow will continue then through the 
weekend.
