NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
910 PM CDT sun Apr 26 2015 


Update... 
increased chance of showers and thunderstorms tonight in response 
to 250 mb jet streak moving across central Louisiana and 
Mississippi placing forecast area in right rear quadrant which is 
where upper level divergence is being enhanced. 00z Slidell 
sounding showed plenty of middle and upper level moisture and 
instability also. 


&& 


Short term... 
with so much instablity and shear developing over the area on 
Monday...can not rule out the possiblity of heavy rain along with 
a severe weather threat. A Flash Flood Watch will probably be need 
for Monday and Monday night. 


&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 846 PM CDT sun Apr 26 2015/ 


Sounding discussion... 
only issue with launch this evening was light winds first 5 
minutes with balloon hovering overhead before westerly winds were 
reached around 4kft. Conditionally unstable sounding with steep 
lapse rates in the middle levels and supportive of observed altocumulus castellanus and 
altocumulus field at launch...and detection of elevated convection 
with isolated lightning strikes to the southwest of kmsy during 
flight. A relatively dry sounding with dry layer above shallow 
marine layer up to about 600mb then saturated at 555mb or 16.2kft. 
Winds...as previously mentioned...were near calm at the 
surface...a layer of NE 2-5 knots to just below 4kft...then SW to northwest 
10-45kt to 16kft...then SW jet winds 60-126kt above...peak wind 
255/126kt at 42.7kft. Precipitable water 0.95 inches...lifted 
index -8 with a most unstable cape 2931 j/kg...not too shabby 
given very little contribution to surface convective processes at 
this time. 


Ran chap output on sounding conditioned on advecting low level 
moisture adequate to provide a Theta-E around 353k at or near 850 
mb. This yields a Ricks index of 181 with a 71% chance of severe 
thunderstorms. Gust potential 74kt/85 miles per hour..hail 2.35" /hen egg/ with a vil 
of only 58. Tornado potential of EF-4 possible. Be mindful that 
this is a conditional case...not actual...but also should be noted 
that presence of altocumulus castellanus and sounding to support such is usually a 
12 hour precursor of severe weather conditions. NAM ros model 
output of chap indicating Rhode Island 162-164 with EF2 potential Monday. 


Finally...balloon burst at 5.8 mb at an altitude of 21.5 miles 
about 87 miles downrange near Easley Road north of Highway 28 in 
western Alabama. 24/rr 


Previous discussion... /issued 319 PM CDT sun Apr 26 2015/ 


Discussion... 
although showers and thunderstorms affected the outer coastal 
waters today...most of the area experienced a lull in 
thunderstorm activity. The quiet weather will be short lived as 
active weather returns Monday through Tuesday as impressive upper 
trough over the intermountain region swings eastward across the 
southern rockies and plain during the next couple of day. Models 
are in general agreement with an associated surface low developing 
over Texas on Monday and moving eastard across the northern Gulf 
coastal states Monday night and Tuesday. Several rounds of showers 
and thunderstorms will accompany this potent weather system over 
the next few days. A strong upper jet should provide widespread 
synoptic scale lift...and along with low level inflow of 20 to 35 
knots and ample moisture...precipitation water in the 1.75 to 2.0 inch 
range by late Monday...should lead to potentially heavy rainfall 
of 1 to 3 inches across the area. Later forecast shifts may have 
to issue Flash Flood Watch as convective trends and timing issues 
are resoved. A few thunderstorms may become severe as forecast 
soundings especially in the coastal area suggest a sufficient 
combination of instbility and shear. The frontal boundary across 
the region positioned in the vicinity of the coast as the surface 
low travels near the coast may enhance the direction shear 
componenet and thus the severe threat. The Storm Prediction 
Center has the entire forecast area in a slight risk Monday and 
Monday night. 


As the upper trough moves east and surface low...low to middle level 
flow becomes west then northwest with much cooler and drier 
airmass moving across the area. Dry conditions and temperatures generally 
be 5 to 10 degree below normal across the region Wednesday through Thursday 
before slowly warming to seasonal levels by the weekend. 21 


Marine... 
realtively light wind regime this afternoon and this evening will 
be short lived as southeast flow increases..to near 20 knots by 
Monday afternoon...ahead of low pressure forecast to develop over 
Texas on Monday and move eastward along the coastal area Monday 
through Tuesday. Several rounds of thunderstorms..potentially 
strong to severe...will likely move across the marine in advance 
of the low pressure system. As the low moves east of the area on 
Tuesday...northwest winds will quickly move in behind it and rise to 
20-30 knots with higher gusts. Wind speeds are not expected to 
ease below 15-20kts until Thursday night. 21 


Aviation... 


Overall...VFR conditions will be the rule at all of the terminals 
through 06z. Winds will slowly back through the period...and expect 
to see a stronger easterly wind after 12z tomorrow. Before this wind 
increases...another inversion should develop after 06z...and expect 
to see a low stratus deck ranging from 300 to 800 feet form over the 
terminals by 09z. There could be some further strengthening of the 
inversion at kmcb...khum...and khdc...resulting in a period of 
visibilities and ceilings below one half mile and 200 feet 
respectively between 09z and 12z and this has been mentioned as a 
tempo group in the forecast. Expect to see the inversion quickly 
clear after 12z...as the gradient flow increases and the boundary 
layer turns more turbulent. A mix of MVFR and VFR ceilings will 
develop around 14-15z tomorrow as this increased boundary layer 
mixing occurs. After 18z...conditions will begin to deteriorate as 
ceilings fall back into IFR range and numerous showers and 
thunderstorms move into the area. Thunderstorms in the vicinity wording will likely be added 
for the afternoon hours tomorrow. 32
