NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
1208 PM CDT Thursday Apr 17 2014 


Update... 


Radar loops indicated rain appeared to be coming into southwest 
areas a bit more widespread and faster than forecast during 
daytime period today...so have raised the pop substantially to 
account for the trends over the western coastal waters and south 
central Louisiana coastal areas. Northeast of the current rainfall 
is a bit more problematic. Drier air appears to be putting the 
brakes on the leading edge of the rain...so made only minor 
changes to bump up the pop 10 percent or so through 7 PM. Latest 
12z GFS is consistent with other models with surface low moving 
northeast across the north central and northeast Gulf of Mexico 
tonight and Friday...except it is a little stronger with the low 
at 7 am Friday. Will evaluate all the new data before making any 
other substantial changes to the later periods of the forecast. 
22/dew point 


&& 


Aviation... 


Modest improvement from MVFR to VFR is possible early this 
afternoon...otherwise...conditions will deteriorate later this 
afternoon through tonight and early Friday morning with widespread 
IFR expected /mainly due to low cigs/...with periods of LIFR 
possible. Visibility restrictions are also likely during rain and also 
possible where the LIFR ceilings develop. The low pressure system over 
the Gulf will also cause northeast winds to rise as high as 20 to 
25 knots near knew late tonight and Friday morning with 15 to 20 
knots possible for a few hours at kmsy...khum...and kgpt. 22/dew point 


&& 


Marine... 


Cman observations indicated winds near or above Small Craft 
Advisory criteria across much of the Mississippi Sound...so added 
that marine zone to the Small Craft Advisory. Remainder of 
coastal forecast was on track. 22/dew point 


&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 403 am CDT Thursday Apr 17 2014/ 


Synopsis... 
surface low pressure is centered over extreme southeast Minnesota with 
cold front extending southwest into northern Texas and central New 
Mexico. Ridge axis extends along the East Coast and through the 
Florida Panhandle. 


Locally...temperatures definitely warmer than same time yesterday...but 
morning lows will still be a solid 5 to 10 degrees below normal. 
Generally sitting in the middle to upper 40s north and in the 50s 
south. Clouds have rolled in over the past few hours...and this 
has actually allowed temperatures to rise a degree or two since midnight 
in many places. 


Short term... 
expect one more day of below normal temperatures today. Most 
places should start the morning 5 to 10 degrees below normal. 
Though the current air mass has already modified a bit...winds 
have not yet shifted fully on shore to bring back the warmer and 
more humid air from the Gulf. Combine this with mostly cloudy 
skies...and am forecasting afternoon temperatures to top out near or just 
above 70 degrees. This is roughly 10 degrees warmer than 
yesterday...but still almost 10 degrees below normal for this time 
of year. 


Rain chances will begin to increase this afternoon as a surface 
low develops in the Gulf in response to a fast moving upper short 
wave. There are still some fairly significant differences in the 
models concerning this system despite being in the near term. The 
European model (ecmwf) and GFS are similar in their tracks... but the GFS is a bit 
stronger. Compared to previous runs...the GFS and Euro have both 
shifted a bit to the north and west with the track of the low. 
This has resulted in a significant increase in model forecast probability of precipitation 
within these two models. The NAM is considerably drier as it keeps 
the low weaker and much farther south and east...thus keeping most 
of the precipitation off shore. 


Have trended toward the latest GFS/Euro blend which did require a 
bit of an increase in probability of precipitation...mainly for tonight. With the current 
forecast track of the low...thunderstorms should generally be 
limited to the coastal waters...and even then only a slight chance 
will be mentioned at best. There is no surface based instability 
to speak of...and even elevated instability appears limited. Model 
soundings indicate an increase in precipitable water with nearly saturated 
soundings by 06z. This could result in at least a few efficient 
rain makers overnight. Generally speaking...quantitative precipitation forecast should be a half 
inch or less...but some higher amounts will be possible under the 
heavier showers. 


The upper short wave and low should be pulling away from the area 
Friday...though a few showers may linger through the morning 
hours. Expect temperatures to return to near normal with lows in 
the middle to upper 50s north and near 60 south and highs in the middle 
70s. 


Long term... 
generally quiet weather will be the rule Saturday through Monday 
as deep ridging takes hold of the area. Gradual warming can be 
expected through the period with no significant rain chances. 
Afternoon highs should rise from middle to upper 70s on Saturday to 
near or just above 80 Sunday and Monday. Another short wave will 
traverse the area on Tuesday. This will bring the next chance of 
rain to the area. However...with weak forcing and not a lot of 
moisture in place...not expecting much more than isolated to 
widely scattered coverage. High pressure will build back into the 
area Wednesday with a return to quiet and warm weather. 


Aviation... 
lower ceilings will be shifting northward across the forecast area 
early this morning with MVFR or near MVFR conditions generally 
expected during the course of the day. IFR ceilings will develop 
later tonight. Rain chances will be on the increase late today for 
the taf sites across the southern sections of the area...and 
especially tonight into early Friday morning for the all of the 
terminals as an area of low pressure develops over the north central 
Gulf overnight and moves northeast Friday. 


Marine... 
moderate to strong easterly flow will prevail across the Gulf 
coastal waters into early Friday...especially for those areas to the 
east of the Mississippi River where small craft advisories and 
exercise caution headlines will be posted for today and tonight. An 
area of low pressure is expected to develop over the north central 
Gulf of Mexico tonight and track northeast on Friday bringing 
widespread rain to the coastal waters. Winds will become northeast 
Friday and gradually diminish in magnitude Friday into Saturday. 
Generally light northeast to east flow over the weekend will become 
southerly early next work week.
