NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
1255 PM CDT sun Aug 30 2015 


..18z aviation... 
VFR conditions will prevail through the rest of this afternoon and 
into tonight. Patchy fog may develop after 9z around mcb 
producing MVFR conditions for a few hours.

Previous discussion... /issued 906 am CDT sun Aug 30 2015/ 


Sounding discussion... 
12z lix sounding continued to depict a dry air column with the 
precipitable water about 1.2 inches. Moisture was also primarily 
confined to the lowest 6 kft with very dry air above up to near 
20 kft. A cap/inversion of 3 degrees f extended from 6 to 8 
kft...and the instability was moderate with mu parcel cape at 1877 
j/kg. The convective temperature is low at 84 degrees f...however 
any building cumulus towers will experience significant dry air 
entrainment...thus no rain is expected. Wind profile is dominant 
westerly and generally on the light side with mean low level winds 
west at 5 knots up to 5 kft...and southwest near 8 knots at 5 to 
10 kft. 22/dew point 


Previous discussion... /issued 333 am CDT sun Aug 30 2015/ 


Short term... 
not much to talk about since Erika was taken off The Table 
yesterday. Another quiet morning across the forecast area as 
temperatures are comfortable in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Not 
expecting much in the way of rainfall over the next couple of 
days. As mentioned in previous forecast an upper trough kicks out 
today as another one develops over Texas by late tomorrow and that 
is expected to cut off over the area. This will keep deeper 
moisture east of the area. I have removed the probability of precipitation for most of the 
beginning of the week as guidance has come in drier for the first 
part of the week. Temperatures will rebound as we start climbing 
into the low to middle 90s for daytime highs over the next few days. 
13/mh 


Long term... 
as we get into midweek and beyond rain chances will increase as 
more diurnally driven convection breaks out. Will continue with 
previous forecast and carry slight chance to chance probability of precipitation for 
Wednesday and beyond. Forecast temperatures look to be pretty close to 
normal...maybe a degree or two above. 13/mh 


Aviation... 
once again no issues with VFR conditions expected to 
persist through the forecast. /Cab/ 


Marine... 
with the demise of Erika it looks like the marine forecast will 
continue to be rather benign. A weak pressure gradient across the 
region through much of the forecast will lead to relatively light 
winds and seas 3 feet or less. /Cab/ 


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