NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
939 PM CDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014 


Update... 
in the process of updating zones to bring probability of precipitation more in line with 
current trends. Vorticity structure that is amplifying while 
moving across the forecast area is able to maintain nocturnal 
convection. The probability of precipitation may be a bit high but are in line with 
existing rain areas and anticipated downstream movement into the 
South Shore and Mississippi coast during the next couple of hours. 
Also adjusted quantitative precipitation forecast to also reflect current trends. No other 
changes at this time. 


Aviation... 
terminal forecasts will be handled with amendments as needed for 
ongoing advancing convection. Otherwise...VFR conditions expected 
outside convection. Gust potential from storms should fall in the 
30 to 35 knot range tonight...possibly 35-45kt range Wednesday. 


&& 


Marine... 
no significant changes to forecast package at this time.

Previous discussion... /issued 802 PM CDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014/ 


.Sounding discussion... 


The moisture content in the atmosphere remains high this evening 
with a precipitable water value of 2.17 inches. MLCAPES are around 
2200 j/kg and the lifted index is calculated at -7.1. So 
thunderstorms across the northern part of the County Warning Area 
/north of I-12/ have plenty of instability and lots of moisture to 
produce 1 to 2 inches of rainfall in some spots. The winds veer 
with height from south and southwest near the surface to from the 
north in the upper troposphere. A maximum wind speed of 31 knots 
was found at 7.8 miles above the ground. 


00z balloon info: a routine launch this evening. The balloon 
went 23 miles downrange and burst over Central Lake Pontchartrain at a 
height of 21.2 miles above the ground.

Previous discussion... /issued 414 PM CDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014/ 


Short term... 


A persistent upper level ridge will remain parked over the 
forecast area through Thursday. In the low to mid-levels...the 
ridge axis will be displaced to the east of the forecast area 
which will allow for deep layer onshore flow to continue. With 
strong onshore flow in place...a deep tropical airmass will linger 
over the area. Precipitable water values of 2.25 inches will be 
common...which combined with ample instability during the 
afternoon hours will allow for scattered shower and thunderstorm 
development. With weak forcing aloft in place...any convection 
will tend to form along low level mesoscale boundaries such as 
seabreeze fronts where convergence is maximized. The deepest 
convection could produce localized rain amounts of up to an 
inch given the high precipitation efficiency expected. 
Temperatures will be near seasonal norms through the short term 
period. 


Long term... 


The upper level ridge begin to break down a bit on Friday as a weak 
inverted trough moves into the eastern Gulf of Mexico. With a 
slight increase in Omega across the area...scattered convection 
will tend to develop earlier in the day and last later into the 
evening. The deep tropical moisture will continue over the 
area...so locally heavy rainfall of 1 to 2 inches will be 
possible with the strongest storms. The inverted trough axis will 
continue to move through the central Gulf Coast on 
Saturday...keeping scattered diurnally induced convection in 
place. This trough will finally shear out early next 
week...allowing the strong upper level ridge to build back over the 
area for Monday and Tuesday. Onshore flow will continue in the 
low levels...so low end chance probability of precipitation will be place each day. 
Temperatures will be little changed through the period...and will 
generally range near seasonal norms. 


Aviation... 


Latest surface observation show cloud decks right around the VFR/MVFR line. 
Scattered convection has developed with thunderstorms tracking from 
SW to NE. Most cells are short lived but can produce heavy rain 
leading to IFR visible at times. Otherwise...VFR conditions will prevail 
late this evening and overnight as showers and storms dissipate. Mcb 
and hum could see light fog near sunrise Wednesday but not expecting 
it to last too long. 


Meffer 


Marine... 


A persistent surface ridge extending across the eastern Gulf of 
Mexico will keep a southeast flow of around 10 knots in place 
through the period. Seas will be somewhat elevated at 2 to 4 feet over 
the western waters through tomorrow as a swell train of 1 to 2 
feet emanating from Tropical Storm Debby moves through the area. 
As the system moves into Mexico...the swell will diminish and 
expect to see a return to calmer seas of 1 to 2 feet by Friday.
