NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
330 am CDT Monday Sep 1 2014 


Synopsis... 


Airmass dried out much more than expected yesterday...with the 00z 
lix sounding showing a precipitable water value of 1.5 inches. 
That was short lived as dew points have rebounded into the middle 70s 
across most of the area. Many areas are still at 80 degrees or 
warmer as of 3 am. Not much in the way of clouds or precipitation 
as of the current time across the area. 


&& 


Short term... 


With moisture levels increasing...precipitable water values near 2 
inches by afternoon...convective chances will increase. Hrrr 
mesoscale model a little more bullish on precipitation development 
by midday than is the WRF. Planning on taking a blended approach 
on rain chances the next 3 days. Anticipate scattered...mainly 
afternoon convection...with best chances over western portions of 
the area...further away from the upper ridge. Temperatures will be 
slightly above normal...realizing that early convective 
development could bust a few forecast highs. 35 


&& 


Long term... 


Little change to forecast from package that was in place. Upper 
ridging expected to remain the driving force behind the weather 
pattern. Scattered convection...mainly during the afternoon hours 
each day with land and sea breeze boundaries providing a potential 
focus for development. Temperatures will continue slightly above 
normal. 35 


&& 


Aviation... 


MVFR conditions due either ceilings and/or visibility in light fog are 
expected to develop at several airports by 10-12z and persist 
through 15-17z. IFR conditions due to low ceilings are expected at kmcb 
for a few hours. VFR conditions are expected to prevail in the 
afternoon and evening today. There is a 30 to 40 percent chance of 
rain showers/thunderstorms and rain today and have indicated thunderstorms in the vicinity in the tafs starting around 
14z at khum and 17-19z elsewhere...then ending at 00z. A few 
airports may lower to MVFR again late tonight/early Tuesday. 22/dew point 


&& 


Marine... 


A tightening of the pressure gradient occurred since last evening 
over the coastal waters...due to an inverted trough over the 
northwest Gulf of Mexico. Southeast winds ranged from near 10 knots 
on the tidal lakes...10 to 15 knots over the sounds...around 15 
knots over eastern coastal waters to 15 to 20 knots over the western 
waters. Seas were mostly in the 3 to 5 feet range...but areas in the 
southwest marine zone may have 6 feet. The pressure gradient should 
relax enough to keep winds averaging around 15 knots or below 
starting around sunrise...so will drop the /small craft exercise 
caution/ headline. 


As the inverted troughs move west of the marine area...southeast 
winds should ease back to 10 to 15 knots tonight...around 10 knots 
or less on Tuesday...then east to southeast around 10 knots 
Wednesday through Friday. Seas should ease slowly back to 2 to 4 
feet Tuesday morning and 1 to 3 feet Wednesday through Friday. 22/dew point 


&& 


Decision support... 


Dss code...green. 
Deployed...none. 
Activation...none.

Decision support services (dss) code legend 
green = no weather impacts that require action 
blue = long fused watch/warning/advisory in effect or high 
visibility event 
yellow = heightened impacts with short fused 
watch/warning/advisory issuances; radar support 
Orange = high impacts - slight to moderate risk severe; nearby 
tropical events; hazmat or other large episodes 
red = full engagement for moderate to high risk severe 
and/or direct tropical threats; events of National 
significance.
