NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
757 am CDT Tuesday Jul 7 2015 


..sounding discussion... 


This mornings sounding is very similar to the 00z sounding with 
the initial visual draw being the large values of forecast/ml cape at 
3000+ j/kg and precipitable water values of 1.66in. However there are two 
distinctive subsidence inversion features at 800mb and 500mb. 
These are a product of high pressure centered over the Florida 
Panhandle this morning. This will serve to hold off most if not 
all convection for today similar to yesterday. Winds are light and 
variable from the surface to around 500mb then switch to 
northeasterly aloft at up to 80kts. These winds are indicative of 
the upper level shear currently over the Gulf and Caribbean.

Previous discussion... /issued 312 am CDT Tuesday Jul 7 2015/ 


Synopsis...much of the Continental U.S. Is dominated by one of two area of 
high pressure at the surface. One surface high is still centered south of the 
near Florida Panhandle and dominates the southeastern Continental U.S. And then broad weaker 
high pressure up the Atlantic coast. Second and stronger area of 
high pressure is slowly working south over the northern and High Plains. 
Just ahead of that area of high pressure is a weak cold front which 
basically stretches NE from the southeastern corner of Colorado and into the Great 
Lakes. In the middle levels the pattern is generally flat with a ridge 
stretching across the entire southern Continental U.S.. a large closed low is just 
off the Pacific coast. 


Short term...overall the forecast is very Summer like. We will be 
dominated by both ridging in the middle levels and at the surface through the 
rest of the work week. This will continue to hinder convection with 
mainly isolated to possibly scattered storms each afternoon. The one possibility 
of seeing slightly greater coverage of storms would be Thursday or Friday as 
an Erly wave could move underneath the ridge twrds the region. This 
would help provide a surge of moisture and some forcing to get more 
convection to develop. Outside of that possibility look for warm to 
borderline hot and humid conditions to continue with afternoon heat index 
readings from the upper 90s to lower 100s. /Cab/ 


Long term...heading into the weekend conditions wont change much. 
The ridge will continue to dominate the region and even build as it 
becomes centered over the Southern Plains. This will continue to lead to 
decent subsidence with a lack of rain. In addition to that it could 
also lead to some rather warm temperatures. Ll temperatures will increase and we 
could see afternoon highs in the middle to possibly upper 90s by sun. /Cab/ 


Aviation... few areas of lower ceilings are possible for a few hours 
this morning. 12z taf pack will identify that for a short time. Will 
not show any ts activity at any terminal for today as a very strong 
cap should inhibit most if not all development. VFR conditions 
should continue through most of the 12z taf cycle. 13/mh 


Marine... 
typical Summer pattern in place as a Bermuda ridge to maintains 
light southerly flow over the coastal waters through the forecast 
period. Any thunderstorms that are capable of developing over the 
next several days will be isolated. Winds and seas should continue 
to be on the lower end ~10kt 2ft. Have made only cosmetic changes to 
the forecast but seems to be very much on track. 


Decision support... 
dss code....blue. 
Deployed...none. 
Activation...none. 
Activities...river flood warnings on Mississippi River from Red 
River Landing to Baton Rouge. 


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 risk severe and/or direct 
tropical threats; events of National significance
