DISCUSSION.

Current overview of the weather maps this morning illustrates the northern Gulf coast under the control of southerly, Gulf moist return flow west of a surface high anchored offshore of northeastern Florida in the Atlantic and a weak stationary front across the central Gulf. Gazing at the mid-levels of the troposphere reveals a dominant ridging pattern associated with anomalously higher heights across a large portion of the central and eastern US. Around the periphery of the ridge will be several small pieces of energy - one already becoming sampled across southwestern Texas that will rotate around the edge of the higher heights of the ridge. This first piece of energy will rotate NE across AR, eventually shifting E to ESE across north-central MS later today. With increasing surface moisture, our instability profile will respond with much more fuel for thunderstorms to develop. As previously mentioned before, it was once thought the best rain chances will stay more to our north today in association with better dynamic ascent with the mid-level disturbance. However, CAM's are starting to come in good agreement over the idea of a cluster of convection developing across coastal SE LA/southern MS between 15 and 18Z today. A further investigation of the synoptic set up and model soundings support this scenario, as the aforementioned weak stationary front drifts north as a warm front, helping to surge higher moisture/PW's across the area leading to an attendant increase in surface based instability. Given all of this, it will not take much to spark thunderstorm development, and a weak wind shift/surface convergence with the northward moving warm front will be just enough to develop thunderstorms. NBM guidance jumped on this idea with such high confidence in CAM solutions - and will introduce this increase in shower/storm coverage today for these areas. Otherwise, temperatures today and Wednesday will remain well above-normal. One thing worthy of noting is with the surge in moisture along with continued above-normal temperatures, heat indicies will peak in the lower to mid 90's, especially for areas away from the rain (generally along and west of I-55) with the same values, more widespread than today expected on Wednesday.

Beyond mid-week into late week and into the weekend is where things get interesting. While all eyes remain on the very powerful, deep upper-level low swirling its way east across SOCAL/N MEX, one thing to watch will be a very strong cold front diving southeast across the central Plains/Midwest later Wednesday/early Thursday. NAM/GFS solutions agree that the front will pass the area midday Thursday (going faster with the timing as these fronts usually are quicker than models can pick up on - in fact late hour NAM3KM 00Z run places the front across MCB 12Z THU). Just how much dynamic forcing with this front sparks shower/storm coverage remains to be seen - and will advertise low confidence for now. However, this set up can be tricky, especially how cold-pool maintenance/surging frontogenetics can and usually do allow for storms to make it south enough for storms to continue into the area. Will be able to narrow more specifics down later today/tonight. Meanwhile, this is not even the main feature to monitor, as this happens - a large stretched area of energy rotates NE across the downstream portion of the upper-low out west into southwest Texas. This area of vorticity appears rather sufficient when compared to others in the next few days, and will likely ride across the then post-frontal environment along the Gulf coast during the afternoon/evening and night time hours Thursday. This will also need to be closely monitored, as model guidance supports elevated convection/heavy rain setting up somewhere across our CWA - more likely areas north of I-10/12. The WPC mentions in their Day 3-7 hazards of this corridor likely developing, and delivering heavy rain and possible flooding conditions in our CWA beginning in this time frame. More details will come in the next day or so but look for this potential by late week.

This system quickly exits, and then we have to deal with the upper-low out west, as it steadily opens up to more of a short- wave across central and eastern texas by late Saturday, become positively tilted and help deliver yet another round of showers and storms come Saturday through early Sunday. Once again, a stationary front/possible warm front will serve as a focus for heavy rain/thunderstorms generally across the same areas along and north of I-10/12 into southern MS. The severe weather threat is still unclear, but will need to be monitored in the warm sector likely across SE LA. This system shoots east Sunday morning - and will be followed by drier and much cooler weather into early next week. KLG

AVIATION.

Cigs should be the only variable pushing any terminal into IFR or lower conditions. Vis should remain 3sm or better for the most part through this taf cycle. There will be some showers around today mainly over the northern half of the area and a TS could be observed as well. The mention of -SHRA may be used but chances are not high enough to mention TS at the moment.

MARINE.

SE winds will become SW today and remain at the same speed. Winds then become more variable by Thursday and a cold front could push into the northern gulf early Friday bringing northerly winds at 15- 20kt shifting to easterly by early Saturday. The front will stall and quickly return as a warm front Saturday bringing southerly winds back to the area. There will be times of sh/ts Thursday through the weekend. A cold front should move through by the start of the new week bringing northerly winds at around 20kt.
