Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Record Report  Statement as of 06:25 am CST on March 6, 2015


... Record low temperature tied at New Orleans International
Airport...

A record low temperature of 31 degrees was tied at New Orleans
International Airport this morning. This ties the old record of 31
set in 1960. Updated information will be sent with the afternoon
climate summary.



 Public Information Statement  Statement as of 6:00 am CST on March 6, 2015


     ... severe weather awareness week in Louisiana...
          ... March 1 through March 7 2015

The week of March 1 through March 7 has been designated as severe
weather awareness week in Louisiana. The late winter and Spring
months typically bring the highest frequency of severe weather to
the Gulf Coast region. Severe weather awareness week is a good time
to review severe weather safety plans and ensure you have a means to
receive timely warnings.

One of the most important features of your severe weather safety
plan is to have a reliable means to receive severe weather
warnings. A battery operated NOAA Weather Radio can be programmed
to automatically alarm and broadcast any severe weather warning
issued for your Parish or County.

Many newer cell phones take advantage of the new wireless emergency
alert feature. National Weather Service tornado... flash flood... and
hurricane warnings are currently sent through this system and
automatically alert cell phones in the warned area. Special
applications or additional software are not needed and messages will
look very similar to text messages when received. The wireless
emergency alert website and your cell phone service provider can
supply additional information.

For more information on severe weather visit the National Weather
Service web site at www.Srh.NOAA.Gov/lix... or contact the National
Weather Service forecast office in Slidell la at telephone number
985-649-0357.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
700 am CST Friday Mar 6 2015 


..sounding discussion... 


Much drier air has moved over the central Gulf Coast states with 
the 24 precipitable water /pw/ change being about -1.4 inches. 
Based off the Storm Prediction Center sounding climatology...our precipitable water was near the record 
low precipitable water for this date/time. As was the case since yesterday's 12z 
sounding...much colder air has arrived...especially below 8000 
feet. Overall...the temperature is lower at any given level 
compared to 24 hours ago. In fact...the 24 hour temperature change 
graph only displays +/-15 celsius. So the 24 hour temperature 
change from the surface to 2400 feet is not shown on the graph 
since it is in excess of -15. For example...the surface 
temperature is 23 degrees celsius lower than yesterday at this 
time! Quite impressive. Last thing to mention on temperature is 
the elevated inversion from about 1500 to almost 6900 feet. Winds 
from the north and northeast prevail below 3000 feet...then winds 
rotate around to from the west and west-southwest above that. A 
peak wind speed of 118 knots was at 38300 feet. 


12z balloon info: no issues with the morning flight which lasted 87 
minutes and traveled 81 miles downrange from the office. The 
balloon attained a height of 19.5 miles above the ground before 
bursting near Helena MS.

Previous discussion... /issued 341 am CST Friday Mar 6 2015/ 


Synopsis... 


Yesterdays cold front is well out into the Gulf of Mexico this 
morning with Arctic high pressure extending from Ohio into Texas. 
Cold air advection cloudiness is limited to far lower Plaquemines 
Parish...and over the Gulf of Mexico. Otherwise...just some 
occasional cirrus moving through the upper level southwest flow 
across the area. As expected...much of the area away from the 
lower Louisiana coast has dropped to near or below freezing this 
morning. Current freeze warning looks fine. Still rather 
breezy/blustery with 15-20 miles per hour winds being common. This is 
producing wind chill values in the upper teens and lower 20s in 
many places. 


Short term... 


High pressure at the surface will sink slowly southward and extend 
from Georgia to Texas by Sunday morning. Upper low over Baja California 
California will begin to open up and lift eastward on Sunday. 
Isentropic upglide will commence during the day Sunday...with 
enough moisture available for a chance of rain by late Sunday 
afternoon. 


With plenty of sunshine expected today into Sunday...will trend 
high temperature forecast toward the warmer end of the guidance 
envelope. This continues the trend over the last several weeks for 
sunny days to be warmer than most guidance. Lighter winds tonight 
should allow temperatures to drop to near or just below this 
mornings readings. It does appear that any subfreezing lows should 
be mainly along and north of the Interstate 10/12 Corridor North 
of Lake Pontchartrain. Day shift is likely to reissue freeze 
warning for this area for tonight. Threat of a hard freeze is low. 
Temperatures Saturday night should remain above freezing across 
the entire area. 35 


Long term... 


European model (ecmwf) and GFS are in fairly decent agreement on the large scale 
upper pattern for much of next week...but that does not really 
help much in the day to day portion of the forecast. Upper 
troughing over Texas will produce south to southwest upper flow 
over our area. This will be a rather moist flow with precipitable 
water values in the 1.50-1.75 range for much of next week. 
Impulses will rotate through the base of the trough and move across 
our area. This will produce periods of rain for much of the week. 
Timing of individual impulses this far out is rarely consistent 
in the medium range models. Will take a blended approach for now 
regarding probability of precipitation and quantitative precipitation forecast...with the expectation of being able to 
refine timing in later packages. Expect little...if any...sunshine 
during the work week next week. Rain amounts during the week next 
week are likely to total several inches for much of the area. 


Will go with a blend on temperature forecasts...trending toward 
the warmer readings until we can refine individual features. 
Temperatures will average somewhat below normal...but not the 
abnormally cold weather we are currently seeing. No signs of 
additional cold snaps through 10 days. 35 


Aviation... 


VFR conditions through 12z Saturday. Gusty winds south of Lake 
Pontchartrain affecting kmsy and knew should abate this afternoon. 35 


Marine... 


Will keep current advisories in place...and anticipate a gradual 
easing of hazardous conditions today. Anticipate exercise caution 
headlines across much of the open waters beyond the advisory 
period into Saturday morning. A lull in the gusty conditions until 
about Monday as easterly surface flow increases with the upper 
trough to the west. 35

Deployed...none.
