NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
1246 PM CDT Sat may 30 2015 


Aviation... 


Cumulus field rather extensive across the County Warning Area terminals this 
afternoon. Generally VFR conditions at forecast issuance time. 
Radar shows isolated convection randomly dotting the area. Any 
organized convection well back in western Louisiana is not 
expected to affect local terminals this afternoon. Will carry thunderstorms in the vicinity 
at all terminals...and amend as necessary if a terminal is going 
to be directly impacted. Most or all convection should dissipate 
by 00z with VFR conditions for most of the night. Some MVFR visibilities 
possible at kmcb around sunrise on Sunday. Isolated showers should 
begin refiring by about 15z Sunday. 35

Previous discussion... /issued 815 am CDT Sat may 30 2015/ 


.Sounding discussion... 
The sounding this morning is unstable and conditions are ripe for 
thunderstorms to fire later today with just a little forcing at 
the surface. Sea/Lake breeze boundaries and peak heating will provide 
the lift. A 5 f inversion is present in the first 500 feet. Plenty 
of cape with 1800 j/kg in the mixed layer and 3000 j/kg most 
unstable will allow for at least the possibility of type I 
waterspouts over coastal waters today as towering cumulus build. 
Precipitable water is above average at 1.71 inches and with the ample cape storms 
could be efficient rain makers. The shear and microburst profile 
are unfavorable but could be enhanced a little by local 
boundaries. Winds are southerly from the surface to 700 mb then switch 
to westerly. Peak wind is just 25 kts at 200 mb.

Previous discussion... /issued 352 am CDT Sat may 30 2015/ 


Short term... 
pretty unsettled airmass remains in place with large upper trough 
moving through the Mississippi Valley. A rather potent mesoscale convective system with 
vigorous mesoscale convective vortex approaching the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex this 
morning will aid in tightening the onshore flow gradient 
throughout the day with convection forming on convergent streaks 
and enhanced by the Gulf Breeze this afternoon. Broad troughing 
would suggest the impetus of the North Texas complex would move 
through the forecast area tonight...as indicated by the GFS. The 
European model (ecmwf) shows likewise but with a slower timing. Both are in 
agreement in sharpening the trough axis Sunday for more storminess 
with lower local and trigger temperature under cold pool aloft. 
Maximum temperatures may occur later in the day Sunday after some 
recovery from morning convection and residual cloud cover. 


Long term... 
northwest flow regime becomes established...a climatologically 
favored pattern for June and late initiation thunderstorms each 
afternoon. This could be the case Monday and Tuesday as strong 
ridging takes hold in the southwest and much of Texas. This ridge 
breaks down somewhat Wednesday with models indicating a large 
upper low pressure area over the East Gulf /GFS/ or lower 
southeast states /ECMWF/. This particular scenario would favor a 
higher risk for downburst conditions in convection that forms on 
lake and Gulf Breeze boundaries latter part of the week. The 
extended portion is pretty close to allblend of MOS guidance with 
little to no spread in guidance on temperatures. 24/rr 


Aviation... 
first deck should be in right around dark and should be around 1500 
to 2000ft for coastal locations a little higher inland to about 
3000ft. Low ceilings are expected at all locations tonight and 
should be from 200 to 500 prevailing shortly after midnight. Some 
visible restrictions are expected with the low level ceilings and will 
have visibilities falling to at least 1sm for all inland 
terminals. 


Marine... 
light east to southeast winds will remain over the coastal waters 
through the forecast. Isolated to scattered thunderstorms will be 
possible each day. Some nocturnal showers should also develop each 
night through middle week. 


Decision support... 
dss code...green. 
Deployed...none. 
Activation...none. 
Activities...none.
