NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
307 PM CST Friday Jan 30 2015 


Synopsis... 


Cold front has pushed into the southern Gulf of Mexico. Surface 
high pressure is centered over the middle Mississippi River 
valley. Next upper low is still well to the west over Arizona. 
Cirrus is filtering sunshine somewhat...but middle afternoon 
temperatures are still pushing into the upper 50s and lower 60s. 
Airmass is pretty dry with dew points around 30 north of Lake 
Pontchartrain...and 35 to 40 south of the lake. 


&& 


Short term... 


Surface high will shift quickly to the east and be centered over 
South Carolina by Saturday night. This will produce an east to 
southeast flow at the surface by Saturday afternoon and evening 
allowing moisture to begin to return. Upper low moves into 
northern Mexico by Saturday night. Northern stream shortwave picks 
up some energy from the low...but leaves a remnant over northern 
Mexico. Low pressure will develop over the plains in advance of 
the northern stream shortwave on Saturday. The low will move into 
the Ohio River valley on Sunday...pushing a front through the 
local area Sunday night into Monday morning. Could see a little 
light rain break out as early as Saturday night...but most likely 
Sunday into Sunday night. For most areas will carry likely probability of precipitation on 
Sunday and high chance Sunday night. All areas should be dry by 
midday on Monday. If any thunder occurs with this system...it 
would be during the daytime hours on Sunday. Shear is sufficient 
but instability rather lacking. 


Guidance is actually in pretty good agreement through Sunday 
night...even on frontal timing...and do not plan to roam far from 
forecast temperature numbers. 35 


&& 


Long term... 


Once we get past Monday...differences become apparent in the model 
solutions. GFS lifts upper low out of Mexico somewhat quicker...about 
12 hours...than does the European model (ecmwf) as both weaken the upper system. 
Low pressure develops over the northern Gulf and moves eastward to 
Florida. Current forecast will be trended toward the GFS...which 
is fairly close to the blended solution. This would have the low 
pressure passing to the south of Louisiana on Wednesday. This will 
keep the area on the cold and wet side of the low. Expect rain 
chances to increase on Tuesday...with a cold rain likely Tuesday 
night into Wednesday before pulling east of the area Wednesday 
night. 


A blended solution on temperatures was used...which is somewhat 
warmer on low temperatures for the middle of the week than what 
the mex data indicates. Temperatures will be below normal all week 
next week...but not extremely so. 35 


&& 


Aviation... 


VFR conditions expected through the forecast period. 


&& 


Marine... 


Next 5 days to be rather unsettled on the open waters. Open 
waters still experiencing exercise caution conditions. There may 
be a brief period this evening where winds weaken to 10 to 15 
knots over the coastal waters...but winds will again increase to 
15 to 20 knots before midnight. Will just continue the headlines 
through 12z to eliminate confusion. Conditions will be borderline 
for headlines for a good bit of Saturday and Sunday. Small craft 
advisories will be likely behind the front on Monday. A brief lull 
ahead between systems Monday night and Tuesday before easterlies 
require headlines ahead of the surface low. 35
