Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service New Orleans LA 329 AM CDT Thu Jul 29 2021

SYNOPSIS.

Upper ridge centered over Kansas early this morning, with the surface high centered over eastern Oklahoma. Ridging extends southeastward toward Georgia. Water vapor imagery indicates highest precipitable water values continue to be suppressed south of Interstate 20. Would note that 00z LIX sounding precipitable water value of 2.43 inches was probably contaminated to some extent as there was convection in the area at launch.

At 3 AM CDT, temperatures were in the mid 70s to lower 80s for much of the area. There was an isolated thunderstorm noted around Breton Sound/Lake Borgne. It's usually about this time that convection gets going in the coastal waters, so areal coverage may have increased by the time the actual forecast goes out.

SHORT TERM (through Saturday night).

Main concern will continue to be heat stress through at least Saturday. However, isolated to scattered convection will have at least a limited threat of strong winds during the afternoon hours.

Plan to keep Heat Advisory in place as currently configured for today and tomorrow. All indications are that any convection should be limited to mainly the afternoon hours both days, and a bit concerned that current forecast PoPs are too high. This is supported by forecast soundings showing convective temperatures in the mid 90s at most locations. NAM solution that is carrying higher chances today may have initialized precipitable water values too high with the 00z LIX sounding noted above. Remaining model solutions have lower precipitable water values that would support lower chances. 12z flight should be quite informative in this respect. Forecast soundings show enough low level dry air to be at least somewhat concerned about downbursts, as reflected by DCAPE values well in excess of 1000 both afternoons. Heat index values look to max out in the 108-112 range in most areas. Can't rule out isolated spots exceeding that.

Saturday is somewhat more questionable when it comes to precip chances. GFS solution carrying higher precipitation chances than the ECMWF and other solutions. This appears to be due to an easterly wave in the northern Gulf of Mexico that is a little closer to the coast than the other solutions, where upper ridging continues to exert more control. If the GFS is correct, temps will be lower and thunderstorms more of a threat. If it isn't . Saturday could actually be the hottest, most impactful of the 3 days. At this point, leaning toward the drier solution. 35

LONG TERM (Sunday and beyond).

Pattern change on the way possibly beginning late Sunday but especially for next week. Rather strong agreement by the operational models, ensemble means, and the NBM. With that confidence is increasing that the heat we have been dealing with will come to an end and widespread rain returning, possibly a little more than we would like but it will be cooler. Overall no real areas of opportunity to deviate from the NBM as it looks good with both temps and PoPs.

Sunday may be the last day with that oppressive heat however, if things speed up Sunday may not be too bad then. Starting off the day the highly amplified ridge over the rockies will extend north well into western Canada and southeast into the eastern GOM. However, with that a deepening L/W trough will be taking over the eastern half of the CONUS with a strong s/w dropping down the back side through the Mid MS Valley and towards the Lower MS Valley late Sunday and Sunday night. This s/w will help to dig the L/W trough even more and likely cause a break in the ridge across the Lower MS Valley and even into the northwestern GOM by Monday morning. This will try to drive a cold front towards the area but that will not make it here till Monday so ahead of it will still be quite muggy and warm. The ridge may hold on just enough to keep convection more scattered and h925 temps of 23-25C would mix down to 32-34C leading to lower to mid 90s. Some compressional heating out ahead of the front may help lead to mid 90s as well. Biggest issue with getting those highs would be cloud cover and rain which I am sure no one will really be complaining about. Heat Advisory may be needed for some areas but a lot will depend on timing.

Next week the pattern change will be in full swings. L/W trough will dominate everything from the Plains to the east coast. This will drive that front into the area and could even drop it into the GOM by Tuesday. Problem is that front may lay up right over the area or just south into the Gulf. Either way would lead to cooler and wetter conditions however, the front laying up over the region could lead to heavier rain. Monday and Tuesday currently have PoPs of 70-90% already and the rain could continue for another day or two. If the L/W trough holds across the eastern CONUS through the week like advertised, we may finally see some actual dry air move in around mid week with PWs dropping below 1.5" and dewpoints possibly into the 60s. /CAB/

AVIATION (valid through 12z Friday).

Clouds around FL050 at KMCB early this morning may prevent any lower conditions developing, so it should primarily remain a VFR forecast outside of convection. All indications are that any significant development should hold off until beyond 18z. Will keep things at the VCTS level until a favored terminal or terminals becomes apparent. Most convection should die off during the early evening hours. 35

MARINE.

Main concerns through the forecast period will continue to be convective threats. Over the open waters, that threat will primarily be during the late night/morning hours each day. For the lakes and sounds, it will be more closely related to convection over land, afternoon and early evening. 35
