NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
352 am CDT Tuesday Sep 23 2014 


Synopsis... 


Cold front moving through the outer coastal waters early this 
morning with only a few isolated showers near it over the open 
waters. Much cooler and drier air has moved into the area with dew 
points in the middle 50s across much of the area. Temperatures have 
already fallen into the lower and middle 60s away from marine 
influences. Skies are generally clear over land. Gusty winds near 
25 miles per hour just downwind of Lake Pontchartrain should gradually relax 
over the next few hours. 


&& 


Short term... 


Very little in the way of low level moisture through Thursday. 
Could see a few isolated showers Thursday over the open coastal 
waters and extreme southern coastal Louisiana as boundary tries to 
work back to the north. The drier air in place will bring slightly 
greater than normal diurnal temperature spreads...with lows just 
below normal and highs near to slightly above normal through 
Thursday. Will trend/blend toward the cooler lows and warmer highs 
through Thursday. 35 


&& 


Long term... 


Both European model (ecmwf) and GFS scenarios depict weak upper lows across the 
Great Plains over the weekend...but differ on timing...strength 
and location of spokes of energy moving around the low. Moisture 
unlikely to be deep enough for significant precipitation prior to 
midday Saturday. Will continue previous forecast trends of chance 
probability of precipitation for Saturday through Monday. European model (ecmwf) solution sweeps moisture 
out of the area late Monday...and GFS shows shortwave ridging on 
Tuesday...so will keep forecast trending in that direction for day 
8. Temperatures should be near to above normal...although clouds 
and precipitation could hold things down a little on Saturday and 
Sunday. 


Persistent east winds could enhance tides on east facing 
shorelines toward the end of the week. 


&& 


Aviation... 


Dry air behind cold front will result in clear skies and excellent 
visibilities through 06z Wednesday. Some cloud decks 035-050 may develop in 
coastal areas of southeast la and possibly kmsy/knew/khum between 
06-12z Wednesday. Northeast winds will remain stronger and gusty at 
kmsy and knew overnight through about 11-12z this morning before 
dropping to 10 to 12 knots after 12z. 22/dew point 


&& 


Marine... 


The strong cold front has pushed offshore...and the cold air 
advection over the warm waters is producing steep lapse rates over 
the waters and gusty winds. Northeast winds of 20 to 25 knots were 
occurring across the marine area and a Small Craft Advisory is in 
effect for all waters until 7 am this morning...except the eastern 
coastal waters will now have a Small Craft Advisory in effect until 
10 am today. Seas will continue building into the 5 to 6 feet range. 
The advisory over these eastern coastal zones had been in effect 
continuously through Wednesday...but there is expected to be a lull 
period with winds well below 20 knots from 10 am to about 10 PM 
today/tonight...so the advisory will not be in effect during that 
time. 


High pressure and cooler air over land will once again cause 
winds to cycle back up to 20 knots or greater over the coastal 
waters east and northeast of Southwest Pass by late evening...so a 
Small Craft Advisory will go back into effect at 10 PM tonight. 
A tight pressure gradient is expected to persist between an 
expansive high pressure area over the eastern states and lower 
pressures over the Gulf of Mexico through the early part of the 
weekend. East to northeast winds are expected to range from 15 to 25 
knots from Wednesday through early Thursday across the coastal waters 
and sounds...then 15 to 20 knots during most of the period from 
later Thursday through Saturday night for most of the marine area. 
Seas will likely build into the 7 to 8 feet range over some of the 
eastern waters late tonight and early Wednesday...then mostly in the 
5 to 7 feet range from later Wednesday through Thursday morning.
