Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
651 PM CST Thursday Nov 27 2014 


..sounding discussion... 


The nocturnal boundary layer was beginning to develop allowing 
decoupling to occur and surface winds to become lighter as the 
balloon began its ascent. Winds aloft are still strong...but not as 
strong as the past couple of days. A peak wind of 81 knots was 
located at 48300 feet. Winds were from the north at the surface 
and then backed to from the west-northwest around 15000 feet. 
Another temperature inversion was located around 925 to 850 mb and 
in this layer it was quite dry. Overall...the sounding is dry as 
is typical for late November with a precipitable water value of 
0.42 inches. 


00z balloon info: a successful flight this evening that lasted 103 
minutes and reached a height of 20.4 miles above the ground 
before bursting over the Gulf of Mexico near Horn Island south of 
Biloxi 66 miles downrange.

Previous discussion... /issued 307 PM CST Thursday Nov 27 2014/ 


Synopsis... 


Axis of surface high pressure extends from Iowa to northern 
Louisiana this afternoon. Little in the way of clouds across the 
area this afternoon...and none really expected through tomorrow. 
It has been a cool and dry Thanksgiving day with temperatures 
generally around 60 at middle-afternoon and dew points around 30. A 
north breeze at 10 to 15 miles per hour has probably made it feel a little 
cooler than that. 


Short term... 


High pressure will slowly move eastward over the next few days and 
be off the Atlantic coast on Sunday. Not much in the way of 
moisture return...even through Sunday. With wind becoming onshore 
by late Friday or Saturday...cannot rule out a little bit of fog 
or low clouds during the late night/early morning hours Saturday 
and Sunday mornings...but confidence not high enough to mention in 
the forecast at this time. No precipitation through the weekend. 


Overnight lows tonight will drop to near freezing in the normally 
colder locations. These areas have had several freezes...so no 
warnings necessary. Possible limiting factor would be if the wind 
stays up around 5 miles per hour...then forecast lows would be too cool. High 
temperatures tomorrow will be similar to todays. Temperatures then 
begin to moderate as onshore flow returns. Have taken a blend of 
guidance approach for temperatures...generally shaded toward the 
warmer guidance. 35 


Long term... 


Beyond Monday...forecast confidence diminishes considerably as 
European model (ecmwf) and GFS pretty much become completely out of phase by middle- 
week. A blended approach leaning toward the European model (ecmwf) solution has 
been used. This brings some mention of precipitation for Monday 
through Wednesday...but not much more than 20-30 percent at this 
time. Have also done this with the temperature forecast to fit 
with neighboring offices...but will note that if GFS solution 
prevails at middle-week next week...temperature forecast will have to 
be increased by 5 to 10 degrees from current forecast. 35 


Aviation... 


Steady north winds will relax around midnight...lending to light 
northeast winds overnight at most terminals. Msy and new will remain 
elevated as cold air advection increases speeds over Lake Pontchartrain. Ridge 
sliding east will allow wind direction to keep rotating around to 
onshore flow tomorrow. No cloud cover of any significance expected. 


Meffer 


Marine... 


A reinforcement of Continental cool high pressure will be taking 
place overnight. WRF mesoscale model seems to be picking up on this and 
suggesting a nocturnal increase in winds in the coastal waters. As 
far as how strong...it appears winds will be borderline scs and Small Craft Advisory. 
Thinking is that the pressure gradient will be such that steady 20 
knot winds will exist in offshore waters east of the MS river. 
Everywhere else should at least be 15 knots. So have issued exercise 
caution and advisory accordingly. Should be a short event with the 
center of the ridge reaching the northern Gulf Coast by noon Friday. 
Therefore will be in effect. High pressure is expected to influence 
the wind field through the weekend before moving east and moderating 
latter part of the weekend. Onshore flow onsets ahead of next high 
pressure surge early next week. Latest model runs now show the front 
making it to the coast...maybe high pressure bridging the front into 
the north Gulf later next week.
