National Weather Service New Orleans la 
757 am CDT Tuesday Apr 21 2015 


..sounding discussion... 


The profile this morning is dry and stable. Mostly clear skies 
overnight have resulted in a 10 f surface inversion in the first 800 
feet where winds are calm. Winds are then from the north up to an 
elevated inversion at 3200 feet and switch to westerly through the 
rest of the Profile. Peak wind is 135 kts at 180 mb in the 
subtropical jet. Precipitable water is below average at .74 inches.

Previous discussion... /issued 528 am CDT Tuesday Apr 21 2015/ 


Short term /today through Thursday night/... 


Main concerns will be the threat of severe thunderstorms 
Wednesday night and again Thursday and Thursday night. For today 
and tonight...the dry airmass will remain in place as surface 
high pressure centered over the lower Mississippi Valley and 
central Gulf Coast region early this morning will remain over the 
area today before moving east across the eastern Gulf Coast and 
Florida tonight and Wednesday. Dewpoint temperatures will remain 
in the upper 40s and 50s today keeping that pleasant feel to the 
air as high temperatures warm into the upper 70s under mostly 
sunny skies. Skies will remain mostly clear tonight...however some 
low stratus clouds and patchy fog could develop either late 
tonight or early Wednesday morning due to light veering southerly 
winds in the low levels. 


Southerly winds will bring an increase in low level Theta-E and 
precipitable water over the southeast plains and western and 
central Gulf Coast region on Wednesday. A middle to upper level ridge 
will build over the Southern Plains...however areas of scattered 
showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop near and south 
of a warm front over Oklahoma and Texas...with a lower chance of 
some of this activity developing eastward over Mississippi and 
Louisiana Wednesday afternoon. After thunderstorms start to 
develop...they could turn into a complex of thunderstorms or mesoscale convective system 
that would move from the Southern Plains into the lower 
Mississippi Valley and possibly the central Gulf Coast. The most 
likely timing for this would be late evening to the early 
overnight hours...and have the rain chances in the good chance 
range. Model soundings indicate it will remain moderately 
unstable overnight with cape in the 1000-1500 j/kg range. Shear 
values are very impressive with surface to 6km around 60 knots. 
Storm Prediction Center has maintained a slight risk of severe across the outlook area 
for day two. The main threats from any severe thunderstorms will 
be damaging winds...large hail and isolated tornadoes. 


A potent shortwave trough is expected to move from the Pacific 
into the southwest U.S. And Baja California Mexico region Thursday with a 
lead shortwave trough reaching the southern rockies Thursday 
night as the downstream shortwave ridge moves east across the 
lower Mississippi Valley. Once again...confidence is low as to how 
much coverage of showers and thunderstorms will either be ongoing 
from any leftover nocturnal mesoscale convective system...or redeveloping in the afternoon 
from daytime heating and instability. Have maintained rain chances 
in the 40 to 50 percent range. There will likely be leftover 
surface boundaries from the Wednesday night thunderstorms...but 
the mesoscale nature of these boundaries will make it difficult to 
nail down the exact location and timing of thunderstorm 
development. Storms that do develop will once again have the 
potential to become severe...and most of the area is in a slight 
risk of severe thunderstorms in the day three convective outlook. 


Long term /Friday through Monday night/... 


A shortwave trough should move out of the southern rockies and 
northern Mexico into the Southern Plains on Friday and Friday 
night with a surface low pressure system moving out of the Lee of 
The Rockies into Kansas or Oklahoma. The models are in better 
agreement today indicating a complex of showers and thunderstorms 
and heavier quantitative precipitation forecast moving from eastern Texas across inland sections 
of the central Gulf Coast...and instability and shear parameters 
will remain favorable for strong to severe thunderstorms to 
develop. Have gone with lower end chances of rain over the 
southern areas with higher chances over the north. The forecast 
area is once again outlooked for severe weather potential in the 
day four convective outlook. 


A model blend suggests the plains system will shear out and 
dissipate as it moves east across Mississippi Valley on Saturday. 
Because of this...rain chances should lower again over the 
weekend if the model trends are correct...and humidity levels 
could also lower by Sunday although temperatures will likely 
remain warm. Another weather disturbance may bring our next chance 
of showers and thunderstorms by Monday...however there are 
substantial model differences in timing by the models at this 
time. 22/dew point 


Aviation... 


With drier air across the area...anticipate VFR conditions to 
continue across all terminals through at least 06z Wednesday. By 
that time...onshore flow will have commenced across the area. 
Somewhat questionable whether enough moisture will have returned to 
produce low ceilings prior to 12z Wednesday. 35 




Marine... 


Offshore flow this morning around 15 knots in a few places...but do 
not feel they will remain there for very long and will omit exercise 
caution headlines for this package. Winds will switch to an onshore 
trajectory by afternoon as the surface high shifts to the east. 
Winds will not be much more than about 10-12 knots for much of the 
remainder of the week. Will start to see an increase in winds by 
Friday night as pressure gradient tightens ahead of a cold front 
that will move into the area Sunday as it weakens. Winds may 
approach 15 knots briefly Friday night. 


Mariners should be prepared for thunderstorms during the overnight 
hours Wednesday night and again Thursday and Friday. Current 
indications are that thunderstorms will develop over southeast 
Oklahoma and northeast Texas Wednesday afternoon and move southeast 
toward the local area Wednesday night. If these storms reach the 
coastal waters...they could be fairly prolific wind producers. 
Repeat episodes are possible Thursday and Friday. 35
