NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...update 
National Weather Service Jackson MS 
834 PM CDT Thursday Oct 23 2014 


Update...upper level disturbance passing across the region this 
evening at the back end of evolving northwest flow regime over the 
eastern Continental U.S. Will provide US little impact despite some passing 
overnight clouds. Clouds helped keep temperatures cools this afternoon and 
a window of mostly clear skies later tonight at most spots will 
allow for decent radiational cooling and temperatures well down in the 40s. 
Winds will probably not go calm enough to allow for optimal 
radiational cooling and/or patchy ground fog. Updates to the 
previous forecast were minor. /Bb/

Previous discussion... /issued 246 PM CDT Thursday Oct 23 2014/ 


Discussion... 
short term (tonight through saturday)...dry conditions will continue 
through the short term period with gradually moderating 
temperatures. 


High level clouds continue to stream across the area as an upper 
trough swings through the region overnight. Radar has been detecting 
some echoes around 10 kft and higher. Given the dearth of moisture in 
the low and middle levels...it is unlikely that measurable rain will 
occur as this precipitation struggles to make it to the surface. 
Nevertheless...clouds will be thick enough in some areas to 
interrupt viewing of the partial solar eclipse. 


Heading into the weekend upper ridging will build eastward into the 
area with high pressure building in at the surface. In spite of 
continued light northerly...and then westerly...surface flow 
temperatures will moderate with highs returning to above normal by 
Saturday. /Dl/ 


Long term (sunday through next friday)...at the beginning of the 
period...middle level pattern will be dominated by a longwave ridge 
extending from Texas northward through the eastern plains and into 
Canada. Dry northwest flow continues over the County Warning Area. Meanwhile...a pattern 
changing system will be digging into the Pacific northwest and then rapidly pull 
into the intermountain west by Sunday afternoon. 


The system continue to deepen as it pulls into the western High 
Plains while its attendant cold front approaches the middle MS Valley. 
Down in our neck of the Woods...surface high pressure will slide 
east as middle level SW flow gets underway Monday. This warm air 
advection regime will slowly begin increasing moisture...but it will 
take some time given the dry air in place (pw/S < 0.75 in). 


GFS/European model (ecmwf) indicate that moisture availability will be sufficient 
enough (pw/S 1-1.5 in) by Tuesday to combine with the good 
isentropic lift for showers to break out by the afternoon. 
Instability looks pretty meager...thus just expecting showers 
initially. 


Moving into Wednesday...European model (ecmwf) looks slightly deeper and more 
progressive with the system as it pulls into the MS/Ohio valleys. 
Boundary looks to be slowing in the GFS as it becomes oriented 
parallel to the middle level SW flow. While differences exist in the 
GFS/European model (ecmwf) on the evolution of the frontal boundary at the end of the 
period...it seems prudent to continue rain chances as pattern 
suggests that isentropic ascent will continue overtop of the 
boundary. Lapse rates still look scanty so will continue with just 
showers for now. /26/ 


&& 


Aviation...middle and high clouds associated with an upper level 
disturbance will continue to move over the forecast area through 
this evening until the disturbance shifts east. Otherwise....VFR 
conditions will prevail at all sites through Friday night. Northerly 
winds this afternoon of 3-6 knots and will subside to near calm this 
evening...and remain so overnight into Friday morning. /22/
