NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
421 PM CDT Friday Apr 18 2014 


Short term... 
the surface in the Gulf is now centered over the Florida 
Panhandle/southern Georgia and it will continue to move northeast. 
Around here a quick moving shortwave is currently moving across 
the area. Clouds brok up this afternoon and temperatures really 
took off across the area and that allowed for some areas to 
destabilize enough to allow for some isolated showers and 
thunderstorms to develop this afternoon and evening with the 
shortwave moving through. Right now showers are ongoing across 
Baton Rouge area up through the southwest Mississippi counties. 
Have kept probability of precipitation in the slight chance range through this evening but 
expect the showers and storms to diminish as we lose the heating of 
the day. The shortwave should pull out of the region tonight and 
high pressure builds in for the weekend and keep rain at Bay. It 
should be a beautiful Easter weekend for our area with 
temperatures in the upper 70s and lower 80s. 


Long term... 
high pressure will still be in the area on Monday however that 
will begin to break down as an upper trough swings north of the 
area and will send a weak cold front into the region on Tuesday. 
This front should be weakening as it moves through the area but 
should have enough life left to produce some rain. Will continue 
with previous forecast and carry some probability of precipitation for Tuesday. Deep ridging 
will once again build into the area during the Wednesday and 
Thursday time frame. 13/mh 




&& 


Aviation... 
conditions will trend from a mix of MVFR to VFR category ceilings to 
mostly VFR through the rest of the afternoon...then nearly 
complete clearing is expected this evening. Some patchy light fog 
may impact kmcb and possibly another Airport or two late 
tonight/early Saturday morning. Some showers and storms have 
developed in the forecast area and have added some amendments to 
tafs to reflect that. Will have to continue to monitor the 
convection through the evening hours. 


&& 


Marine... 
Small Craft Advisory and small craft exercise caution headlines 
will continue through the evening and overnight hours. Winds 
should begin to gradually subside late this evening and tonight 
from west to east over the coastal waters as the low pulls away 
from the southeastern United States. A ridge of high pressure will 
rebuild over the area during the weekend with offshore flow 
Saturday becoming onshore during the day Sunday and persisting 
into early next week. A weakening cold frontal boundary may 
approach the coast on Tuesday.
