NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
347 PM CDT Wednesday Apr 23 2014 


Short term... 
benign period of weather with weak high pressure over the area. 
Temperature differentials are finally establishing lake and sea 
breeze regime for some fair weather cumulus cloud cover taht will 
diminish with sunset today. A repeat scenario for Thursday after 
some patchy light radiational fog Burns off by mid-morning. 


Long term... 
steady state onshore flow may briefly become disrupted on Friday 
as the lower end of a weak frontal zone passes through the area. 
While rain chances do not look great there is a low chance for 
some convergent boundary generated showers due to interations with 
lake and sea breezes. Temperatures ought to be near normal for 
late April through the weekend. The main weather focus will then 
shift to Monday and early Tuesday as the models continue to show a 
rather large and strong cyclone moving through the plains states 
with deep fetched moisture moving through the forecast area. Thes 
scenario should feature strong to severe thunderstorms across much 
of the south but remains to be seen if that extends down to the 
Gulf Coast areas...though conditions may become favorable for 
squall line and discrete bowing segments Monday evening and night. 
The bulk of the weather is indicated to depart Tuesday morning but 
upper level trough with the coldest advection does not fully swing 
through until Tuesday night. Wednesday is expected to be an 
unseasonably cool day with much below normal temperatures if European model (ecmwf) 
verifies...not quite as cold but still cold if the GFS is correct. 
It could potentially be a record for lowest maximum daily temperature 
if all pans out and temperatures only reach middle 60s. Record lows during 
that period are around 40 at kbtr and upper 40s in New Orleans 
area. 


&& 


Aviation... 
VFR conditions expected for much of the period though some patchy 
light fog may bring a few locations to 5-6sm br before daybreak 
mainly due to shallow ground and radiational fog but should burn 
off by 15z. 


&& 


Marine... 
relatively light winds and low seas expected through Saturday 
before a tightening of the onshore wind gradient Sunday. This will 
cause seas to respond in kind for Sunday and Monday. Winds and 
seas relax a bit on Tuesday before strong cold front moves into 
the north Gulf next Wednesday. 


&& 


Decision support... 
dss code...blue. 
Deployed...none. 
Activation...none. 
Activities...slurry support 
monitoring river flooding 
assessing severe weather potential for Monday/Tuesday 


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