Area forecast discussion...updated National Weather Service Jackson MS 1042 am CST Monday Feb 8 2016 Update...cold front is south of our County Warning Area and gusty northwest winds have developed in its wake. Wind gusts of 30 to 40 miles per hour have already been observed with the strongest winds over our northwest. The wind will meet Wind Advisory criteria over our northeast so the current advisory will remain in effect until 6pm. Visible satellite imagery only showed a few cumulus starting to develop over our County Warning Area at 10 am. The isolation today will be offset by the cold air advection but temperatures have risen to forecast highs already. Have raised afternoon highs a couple degrees and adjusted hourly temperature curves to match the trend. Hi-res models show very little precipitation over our northeast until this evening. Have removed probability of precipitation until middle afternoon over our northeast most zones. Dry weather is expected elsewhere. /22/ && Aviation...VFR conditions will prevail at all taf sites through the next 24 hours. Clouds will increase today but should remain VFR. A cold front is moving through the region which is resulting in a wind shift out of the north and breezy conditions. Speeds of 20 to 25kts sustained will be possible especially at kglh with gusts to near 30kts. Elsewhere....sustained winds of 15kts with gusts to near 20kts are more likely. /28/ && Previous discussion... /issued 308 am CST Monday Feb 8 2016/ Short term...today through Tuesday night...water vapor imagery this morning showing impressive middle level trough axis diving rapidly southeast into the area. This system promises to bring another round of cool temperatures to contend with during the upcoming week. Two forecast problems to deal with today as temperatures begin cooling off. First...blustery winds will be seen behind the frontal system... currently entering the upper Delta as of 09z. These winds over the open terrain...lakes...and rivers of the Delta Region will likely exceed Wind Advisory criteria. Will...therefore...Post a Wind Advisory over the majority of the counties/parishes in the Delta Region. Sencond forecast problem will be the potential for rain showers over the NE today and snow showers tonight. Steep low level lapse rates and enough moisture for at least pockets of shallow cape will support a few showers over the far NE. Hrrr/arw and nmm hint at this scenario in their reflectivity forecasts. These conditions will linger into the evening with further cooling in the column...resulting in some light snow showers mixing in with the rain. With the quick and light nature of the precipitation...no accumulations are expected. Precipitation should come to an end by midnight as drier air filters into the lower levels./26/ Long term...Wednesday through Sunday...quiet weather looks to overall persist across the forecast area through the majority of the long term forecast period. A cool start to the period on Wednesday...will be followed by a late week warm-up Thursday and Friday. Another cold front will drop south through the region during the course of the day Friday. An increase in cloud cover is expected as the front pushes through. Most of the forecast area currently looks to remain rain free with this front...but some pockets of light rain can't be ruled out...especially over the eastern half of the County Warning Area. High pressure at the surface will again build into the County Warning Area from the northwest through the weekend...as we maintain northwest flow aloft. Near seasonable conditions will exist during this time as highs Saturday and Sunday afternoons range from the middle 40s to upper 50s. Lows both Saturday night will range from the middle 20s to middle 30s...with middle 30s to middle 40s forecast for Sunday night. /19/ && Preliminary point temps/pops...
