Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service New Orleans LA 358 AM CST Mon Dec 9 2019

SYNOPSIS.

High pressure currently off the Atlantic Coast extending into the eastern Gulf of Mexico. Surface low currently over Kansas. Southerly flow has onset across the area, but is still rather weak, and isn't bringing particularly moist air into the area yet. In fact current dew points noted in marine observations remains below water temp (upper 50s dew points vs low-mid 60s water temps). This is making for a difficult nowcast regarding advective sea fog. Aviation observations at Gulfport and Keesler AFB support the current Dense Fog Advisory, but webcams are showing little, if any, dense fog. So, what is out there is more likely radiative and not advective.

SHORT TERM.

If fog development doesn't increase closer to sunrise, will likely go ahead and cancel advisory prior to 7 am CST.

Onshore flow becomes somewhat better established today with mid 60 dew points across most of the area by late afternoon. This could lead to a more substantial advective fog situation tonight. Northern stream shortwave pushes cold front closer to area as Kansas low moves into the Great Lakes, but other than warm advection, no real sources of forcing today. This would allow for some development of isolated or scattered showers this afternoon, but no widespread precipitation. Front enters the area late tonight and takes pretty much the entire day Tuesday to clear the coast. At this time, it looks like most precipitation will actually be post- frontal, which will limit thunderstorm development. Three hourly thunder probabilities don't get much past 10 percent, so will be playing down any thunder mention for now. Slow moving front means precipitation likely to linger into at least early Wednesday before pushing offshore.

Assuming we don't get into an advective fog situation today, anticipate high temperatures should be at or above the upper end of the guidance envelope for much of the area . 75-80. This would be a few degrees short of records at Baton Rouge and New Orleans. The exception to this would be along the Mississippi Coast, where the water temperatures will temper highs somewhat. Guidance is pretty close on temperatures tonight. High temperatures on Tuesday will be driven by the frontal location around sunrise. Calendar day highs likely to be pre-sunrise across northwest quarter or so of the area. Will accept blends for Tuesday night/Wednesday. 35

LONG TERM.

Beyond Wednesday, guidance begins to struggle with timing, strength and phasing of northern and southern stream shortwaves. At this time, ECMWF beginning to look like an outlier solution closing off an upper low over the Bay of Campeche over the weekend. No support for it from CMC or the Euro ensemble. For now, will continue use of blends, but may need to start trending toward GFS solution in later packages. If we get precipitation in the extended, probably on Friday, but currently looks like most precipitation likely to be offshore. 35

AVIATION.

Low level ceilings will range from VV001 to OVC005. When these ceilings break, the next level will remain at OVC020-040 through the day. Tonight looks to be a repeat of these LIFR to IFR conditions. Vis will follow these same lines as it will dip to 1/2SM or less this morning and again tonight for most if not all terminals.

MARINE.

A few locations showing fog this morning and a marine dense fog advisory will remain for these areas through 10am today. the advisory may be issued again later today unless the fog refuses to lift which will cause the advisory to simply be extended in time and possibly area as well. Winds will also remain southerly around 15kt through tonight. Another cold front will approach and move through the coastal waters Tuesday night. Fog conditions will be replaced with widespread rain showers Tuesday night into Wednesday. Strong northerly winds will also move in behind a cold front. These conditions will be pressed south into the central gulf Wednesday night, but will rapidly move back into the coastal waters by the end of this week.
