NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
310 am CST Thursday Feb 11 2016 


Short term...biggest issue over the night was lows were set in the 
early evening hours at many locations as warm air advection started early this evening 
leading to temperatures rising over much of the area. Temperatures are running 
about 10 degrees warmer at 8z than they were the previous night. 


Very good consistency in the forecast through the weekend. As has been 
mentioned all week temperatures will moderate significantly and is already 
underway. As warmer air moves in from the southwest Gulf and Mexican 
plateau h925 temperatures are expected to Jump Up to around 12-14c. This 
will lead to highs about 10-15 degrees warmer than yesterday 
ranging from near 70 to the middle 70s today and then upper 60s to middle 
70s tomorrow. Under northwest flow middle level hghts will continue to slowly 
rise and will lead to a dry forecast. 


Still expecting a weak backdoor cold front Sat which will be 
associated with a weak clipper system diving from the Great Lakes to 
the Middle Atlantic States late tomorrow and into Sat. This front will 
be another dry front as moisture just wont increase ahead of it 
mainly due to the northwest flow aloft. H925 temperatures will drop behind the 
cold front to around 4-6c and this will lead to afternoon highs on Sat 
about 10-15 degrees cooler than Friday highs (mainly in the 50s again). 


The airmass behind saturdays cold front will be very transient while 
the northwest flow aloft will temporarily break down. With the surface high 
shifting east of the Appalachians sun allowing srly flow to quickly 
develop and generally zonal flow aloft moisture should finally 
increase over the area ahead of our next system on Monday. Ll temperatures 
will increase some with highs on sun likely in the upper 50s to middle 
60s. /Cab/ 


Long term...there continues to be real good continuity b/T the 
medium range models along with good consistency. Forecast confidence 
continues to grow with rain on Monday and then drier and slightly above 
normal conditions the remainder of the week. 


Still looks like a strong short wave and associated cold front will impact 
the region mainly Monday. Moisture will increase ahead of the system 
with precipitable waters  finally back above 1" and dewpoints in the upper 50s to near 
60. Middle level hght falls on the order of 3-5dm in 6 hours along with a 
middle level jet core of 90kts moving through the region will combine 
with a cold front and should provide more than enough support to get 
numerous rain showers to develop during the day Monday. Rain showers will be the 
dominant weather feature but there will be a little elevated 
instability to work with which should allow for a few embedded thunderstorms and rain. 
Light rain showers could begin as early as the overnight hours sun across the 
northwest but expect much of the activity to occur during the day Monday and 
then tapering off quickly from northwest to southeast Monday evening. 


The region moves back under northwest flow Tuesday and into Wednesday but a 
progressive pattern will lead to short wave riding on Thursday. The forecast will 
remain dry with temperatures near normal thx to the Pacific origin of this 
airmass. With a progressive pattern in place...conditions will 
quickly moderate with slightly above normal temperatures expected the 
remainder of the work week. /Cab/ 


&& 


Aviation...VFR ceiling and visibility unlimited conditions all terminals entire forecast 
period. Southwest winds are expected to become gusty during the 
afternoon hours. 24/rr 


&& 


Marine...west winds are expected to prevail at moderate levels 
today through Friday ahead of slow moving frontal zone in the lower 
Mississippi River valley. This front will bring a wind shift Friday 
night that may bring the winds to near Small Craft Advisory levels 
but brunt of cold air advection will be shunting east through 
Saturday. A stronger clipper system moves through Monday evening 
that could result in Small Craft Advisory conditions upon its 
passage. 24/rr
