NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
1134 am CDT Thursday Apr 28 2016 


Update...busy morning. Showers and thunderstorms have been 
backbuilding along a subtle boundary that has slowly drifted 
south through the MS coastal counties and the parishes along the 
Northshore. This boundary is moving into the southshore and will 
be the focus for further development. A very moisture rich airmass 
is in place across the region with 12z sndg measuring 1.86 precipitable water. 
Combine that with middle and upper level flow paralleling the surface 
feature along with more than sufficient instability in place and 
the right ingredients are coming together for a very localized 
heavy rain threat. A Flash Flood Watch was issued earlier for 
parishes surrounding Lake Pontchartrain and maybe expanded 
depending on satellite and radar trends. The Flash Flood Watch 
also contains Hancock and Harrison counties where high water 
rescues continue due to ongoing flash flooding. All grids and 
zones have been issued already. /Cab/
