GMZ400 404 Pm Cdt Tue Oct 3 2023
Synopsis.
the gradient between high pressure centered over the northern appalachians and a weak trof over the northern gulf of mexico will allow for continued moderate easterly winds and seas. Taking near-shore and buoy observations, winds stayed up higher than expected today and are expected to increase tonight within a tightening weather gradient. A small craft advisory has been issued for coastal waters through tonight for elevated winds and seas. The proximity of the trough will also allow for continued development of scattered showers or Thunderstorms over the next couple of days.
wave heights will decrease temporarily as a frontal boundary sweeps into the gulf, bringing behind it a surge of elevated offshore flow. The strongest period will be on Saturday, where we could see winds of 20 to 25kts sustained with higher gusts right under gale force.

SHORT TERM
(This evening through Wednesday night)
Issued at 255 PM CDT Tue Oct 3 2023

Current upper level pattern in place across the country is fairly simple in the fact that there's a broad ridge extending from the Gulf of Mexico to the Great Lakes and a deep longwave trough draped across the Rockies. Strong subsidence from this high pressure and very dry air throughout the atmospheric column locally will keep the land areas of the CWA rain free. The only exception in along the LA coastal areas where surface dewpoints are in the mid 70s and there's a sharp gradient of higher deeper moisture content with PW's over 1.5". Temps continue to be at or slightly above normal due to upper ridge nearby and relatively dry air in place.

The upper trough to the northwest will broaden across the Canadian/US border on Wednesday while the southern apex of it lags behind in eastward progression. This will cause the northern side of the upper ridge to erode but still have some semblance of high pressure aloft to keep most of the CWA from seeing any rainfall outside of continued coastal showers. Also won't see appreciable chances in temperatures from the last several days. Not much spread in guidance so stayed with deterministic NBM. A cold front embedded within the base of the approaching trough should be moving through east Texas and just nudging into far NW LA by the end of this forecast period, 12Z Thursday. Model consensus fairly high at this point that it won't reach the CWA before then, so have kept POPs out of the forecast for now.

LONG TERM
(Thursday through Monday night)
Issued at 255 PM CDT Tue Oct 3 2023

No significant changes in thinking from previous forecasts. A strong northern stream trough axis will dig into the eastern half of the CONUS on Friday and Saturday. An attendant cold front will accompany this trough axis with the frontal passage expected to occur during the day on Friday. Modest moisture return as evidenced by PWATS of around 1.75 inches in advance of the front will support the development of some scattered shower and weak thunderstorm activity. This is reflected by PoP values of 30 to 40 percent over most of the CWA. In fact, model sounding analysis indicates very limited mid-level instability, so any thunderstorm activity should remain isolated and be very short-lived. By Friday night, a surge of much drier air is expected to begin sweeping into the area, and this will effectively shut off any rain chances by Saturday morning.
As deep layer northwest flow and strong negative vorticity advection takes hold over the weekend, clear skies and low humidities can be expected from Saturday through early next week.

Little spread in the model solutions exists in terms of temperature forecasts on Friday and Saturday, and have largely stuck with the deterministic NBM output through this period. Daytime highs on Friday should be near average in the mid 80s, but colder air will begin to advect into the region Friday night. This colder airmass will push 925mb temperatures into the upper 50s, and this support daytime highs at the surface in the upper 70s. A gradual modification of the airmass is expected by Monday and Tuesday, but daytime highs will remain below average in the lower 80s. The combination of clear skies, dry air, and light winds will allow overnight lows will dip into the 50s over most of the forecast area Saturday, Sunday, and Monday nights. However, a few locations in southwest Mississippi and in the drainages of the Pearl and Pascagoula Rivers could dip into the upper 40s. To the south of Lake Pontchartrain, northerly winds off the warmer lake waters will keep temperatures more modified in the lower 60s each night.
Overall, a very pleasant stretch of weather is expected after the front pushes through on Friday.

AVIATION
(18Z TAFS)
Issued at 255 PM CDT Tue Oct 3 2023

No significant impacts expected at terminals through this forecast period. A CU field has developed across portions of the area with ceilings just nudging into MVFR category. Those will probably rise into VFR before eventually dissipated later today. Easterly winds persist with most terminals 5 to 10 knots with gusts to 15 knots.
TAF sites closer to water will experience about 5kts stronger than that during the day. Evening and nighttime hours return to light and variable with mostly VFR prevailing. Some guidance suggest low chance for light fog Tuesday morning at KMCB and KBTR. Not confident enough to add that to TAFs just yet.

MARINE
Issued at 255 PM CDT Tue Oct 3 2023

There's a strong surface ridge situated underneath a broad upper ridge centered northeast of the CWA. To the northwest, a surface trough is deepening while tracking into the Rockies. This is resulting in a tight pressure gradient across the local coastal waters. That gradient currently supports Small Craft Advisory winds in open Gulf waters with Exercise Caution conditions in the tidal lakes and sounds. However, the gradient will start to relax some this evening and tonight as the surface ridge slides east. Thus, the SCY will drop off and just carrying SCS headline through tonight.

First significant cold front of the fall season still looks to come marching through Friday night. Expecting Small Craft conditions to develop behind the front. Probably looking at a 24 to 36 hour duration of those conditions before the gradient relaxes.
