PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 333 PM CDT Sun Sep 19 2021/

SHORT TERM (Tonight through Tuesday Night) . An elongated trough axis will linger over the area through tomorrow. This trough axis should shift east of the area on Tuesday allowing a more westerly or zonal flow pattern to take hold for a brief period of time. By Tuesday night, all of the guidance indicates that a strong northern stream trough axis and attendant cold front will begin to sweep through the forecast area.

The atmosphere will remain relatively moist and unstable through the entire short term period. This is evident through precipitable water values ranging from 1.75 to 2 inches and mixed layer CAPE values of around 1000 to 1500 J/KG during the afternoon hours both Monday and Tuesday. The overall convective pattern will be entirely diurnal and any convective development will tend to form along weak mesoscale boundaries like the landbreeze/seabreeze or any pre-existing outflows.

One of the main limiting factors for convective development will be a decrease in upper level forcing as the trough axis pulls to the east and some drier air advecting into the mid-levels. This dry air advection aloft will weaken mid-level lapse rates to around 5.5C/km, so the prospects of deep and sustained updrafts will be lowered. However, a few deeper convective cells and scattered marine layer shower activity is anticipated for both Monday and Tuesday afternoon as the convective in the mid 80s is reached. The decrease in cloud development and rainfall, combined with a more westerly flow pattern will allow for warmer temperatures on Monday and Tuesday. Highs should climb into the upper 80s and possibly lower 90s, and this could push heat index values above 100 in some of the hurricane impacted parishes. Will need to monitor for any heat advisory issuances in parishes with limited power restoration.

The strong northern stream front and upper level trough axis will begin to push through the forecast area Tuesday night, and this front could provide enough low level forcing to keep a risk of isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms in place through the overnight hours. If any convection forms along the front, it will likely be in the form of a weak line of showers and thunderstorms. Fortunately, directional and speed shear values will be very low and lapse rates will be fairly weak as the front moves through. This will keep any severe risk at bay as the cold front sweeps in. Some cold air advection will likely begin to take hold across Southwest Mississippi and portions of metro Baton Rouge late Tuesday night, and have lows dipping into the middle to upper 60s in these areas.

LONG TERM (Wednesday through Saturday) . The cold front will continue to push through the area and then offshore Wednesday morning, and this will keep some lingering cloud cover and a slight to low end chance of showers and thunderstorms in the forecast for areas mainly along and south of I-10 through the morning hours. By the afternoon, the front will be clearing the coastal waters and a surge of very dry and cooler air will begin to sweep into the region. Deep layer northwest flow and increasing negative vorticity advection will also become the rule by Wednesday afternoon. These conditions will persist through Saturday with clear skies, low humidity, and cooler than normal temperatures forecast through the extended period. The heart of the 925mb thermal trough axis will reside over the region from Thursday through Friday, and this will push high temperatures down into the middle to upper 70s and overnight lows into the 50s and lower 60s. In fact, a few locations may touch the upper 40s if enough cold air drainage down the Pearl and Pascagoula River valleys occurs. Some modification in temperatures is expected by Saturday as the heart of the 925mb thermal trough axis shifts to the east, but readings will continue to run cooler than average.

AVIATION . While all terminals are currently VFR or MVFR, a similar setup like the previous few days are expected where IFR or LIFR conditions are possible due to low ceilings and patchy dense fog is expected early tomorrow morning around 08-12z, especially for terminals along and north of I-12. Afterwards, fog and low ceilings should lift after sunrise and then another batch of diurnal convection in the afternoon hours. -BL


MARINE . Other than the threat of gusty winds and waterspouts from scattered shower and thunderstorm activity, the forecast calls for fairly benign conditions over the coastal waters through Tuesday. Winds will be southwesterly at 5 to 10 knots and seas will generally be 2 feet or less. However, a strong cold front will sweep through the waters on Wednesday. Strong thermal mixing over the warm Gulf waters will allow winds to increase into small craft advisory range of 20 to 25 knots after the front moves through. Seas will respond to these winds and increase to over 6 feet by Wednesday night. These conditions persist into Thursday with some relaxation of the wind field into the 15 to 20 knot range expected by Friday.
