NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
1224 am CDT sun Mar 29 2015 


Aviation... 


VFR conditions anticipated through the forecast period. 35 


&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 404 PM CDT Sat Mar 28 2015/ 


Synopsis... 
latest surface analysis showed a 1029mb high over Illinois with 
the ridge axis south to the north central Gulf. Precipitable water 
values around half inch from the central Gulf Coast to Central 
Plains. Upper air analysis showed the main trough along the East 
Coast with northwest flow over Mississippi Valley. In 
addition...disturbance was embedded in the northwest flow over 
middle and lower Mississippi Valley. 


Discussion... 


Another chamber of Commerce day was present for all the outdoor 
activities across southeast Louisiana and southern Mississippi 
today. Upper level short wave axis will continue to dive 
southeast spreading cloud cover across north and east forecast 
area. The main trough axis along the East Coast will lift east 
and allow thickness layers to increase through the rest of the 
weekend. Temperatures will warm to near 80 for Sunday afternoon. 
Surface high will push east to the middle Atlantic Seaboard with 
moderate southerly flow developing Sunday morning. Mostly clear 
skies Sunday night and added ll moisture will allow saturation 
and possible formation of fog early Monday morning. 


An area of surface low pressure and a cold front will move 
quickly with the main system to the north...however the weaker 
southwest portion of the cold front will become elongated from 
west to east and slowly push south across the interior portions 
of the southern states on Monday. The models continue to pool some 
moisture south of the frontal boundary...and produce some light 
quantitative precipitation forecast over portions of the forecast area on Monday. Have held onto a 
low chance for showers and thunderstorms with some instability 
coming into play with daytime heating. 


A shortwave trough in the southern stream is expected to move 
east across western and central Texas and adjacent Mexico on 
Tuesday. Moisture and marginal instability will remain in place 
for a 20 to 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. GFS 
and Euro continue to struggle with timing and movement of this 
shortwave approaching the forecast area. These slightly higher 
rain chances are maintained into Thursday...then slight decrease 
on Friday. Temperatures are expected to be on the warm 
side...ranging from the middle 70s to the lower 80s for highs. 
Another wave in the northern stream will push a frontal boundary 
through the area Saturday morning. Will increase rain chance with 
thunderstorms Friday night and early Saturday. 18 


Aviation... 


VFR conditions expected through the forecast period. May be a few 
lower clouds...around fl040-050...after 00z at kmcb as a shortwave 
passes to the northeast. 


Marine... 


High pressure will move slide eastward over the next 24 hours 
with an moderate onshore flow by early Sunday. Winds will have a 
southerly component through next week. There will be a couple of 
periods where winds will go southwest instead of southeast to 
south as shortwaves pass by the area to the northeast. Do not see 
winds being much above 10-15 knots through the week. 


Decision support... 
dss code...green. 
Deployed...none. 
Activation...none. 
Activities...none.
