NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...update 
National Weather Service Jackson MS 
1025 am CDT Sat Mar 28 2015 


Update...final clipper disturbance dropping down the backside of 
the anomalous eastern Continental U.S. Trough will impact the lower MS valley 
today...bringing clouds to much of the region. Some precipitation is 
currently noted (mainly north of the region) at this hour and model 
consensus agrees that some of these isolated and light showers will 
make it into the northern portion of the County Warning Area as we head in through 
the rest of the daylight hours. Interestingly...surface temperatures 
and temperature profiles aloft are just cold enough in some place to our 
north to result in sleet and flurry reports since early morning. 
There is a slight chance some light and brief sleet could make into 
the far corner of my arklamiss Delta zones this morning and this was 
included in the forecast update...but I must stress no impacts are 
anticipated with surface temperatures in the 40s. 


Still looks like many locales along and north of the Highway 82 
corridor may struggle to get above 50 degrees this afternoon which 
is quite chilly indeed for late March. This should be contrasted 
sharply with a few spots in far southern zones that manage to sneak 
out some afternoon sun...helping boost highs up to or just above the 
70 degree mark. /Bb/ 


&& 


Aviation...cloud decks should be above 4 kft in all areas through 
day although some light showers will be possible through the 
afternoon...mainly north of the I-20 corridor. In 
short...anticipated mainly VFR through the next 24 hours. /Bb/ 


&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 341 am CDT Sat Mar 28 2015/ 


Short term...amplified middle level flow pattern over the Continental U.S. Early 
this morning will gradually relax by the end of the period. A weak 
shortwave/speed maximum will drop rapidly southeast across the area today. With 
low level flow still remaining easterly...this system will be quite 
moisture starved. Thus expecting only light quantitative precipitation forecast from what manages to 
make it to the ground out of middle level cloud deck. 


Moving into the evening...the shortwave will have moved southeast with only 
lingering...but decreasing cloud cover behind. After a slow start to 
radiational cooling...do still expect mins tonight to drop into the 
middle 30s over the far NE where patchy frost may be seen as winds will 
be light. 


Surface high pressure moves east Sunday allowing southerly flow to 
set up in advance of the next middle level wave and its attendant cold 
front. The speed of this system will not allow much time for 
moisture return...but middle/upper 50 dewpoints do manage to pool 
immediately ahead of the boundary over north MS by Sunday evening. 
Model soundings indicate slight decoupling of the boundary layer 
ahead of the front...but also indicate around 500 j/kg of elevated 
cape and middle level lapse rates 7-8c/km. While anafrontal/isentropic 
lift will serve to develop the showery activity with the frontal 
forcing...may still be able to get some thunder if deep enough 
updrafts can tap into the middle level instability./26/ 


Long term...Monday through next Saturday...the cold front will 
continue to sink south into the forecast area Monday into Monday 
night with showers and a few storms scattered about across the 
region. As the front's middle/upper level support lifts out overnight 
Monday into Tuesday morning...the front will briefly stall over the 
southern half of the County Warning Area. 


The front will begin to lift back to the north Tuesday in response 
to a shortwave...embedded in quasi-zonal flow aloft...shifting east 
through the Southern Plains states. As the front lifts 
north...moisture will surge into the forecast area ahead of the 
approaching shortwave. This...in addition to daytime heating... 
will result in showers and storms again both Tuesday and Wednesday. 


There are some system evolution and timing differences in the GFS 
and European model (ecmwf) late in the period...Thursday through Saturday. Still... 
rain chances look to remain in the forecast Thursday and Friday as 
westerly flow aloft is currently prognosticated to bring other disturbance 
through the region where a warm moist airmass persists. A front 
dropping south through the region Friday night...could bring an end 
to rain chances for the start of the Easter weekend. /19/
