Discussion... 


Today through Sunday 


Continued below normal temperatures today with slow moderation over 
weekend with continued rain and some thunderstorm chances as well. 


Per laps/visible satellite imagery, an open inverted surface trough 
over the Sabin river allowing for weak isentropic upglide while 
being connected vertically to a 700 mb-500 mb vorticity maximum over the arklatex is 
providing support of a light rain shower shield over the region. 
This rain shield will persist and continue to weaken as it pushes 
east towards Alabama. Little movement of surface trough is expected over 
next 12 hours and some hi-res/sseo output suggest another round of 
semi-organized showers over la parishes Saturday morning. 


By Saturday aftn, aforementioned surface trough and associated 
vertical vorticity connection will shift SW and weaken but broad 
500 mb-300 mb troughing will still be in place over the region. Expecting 
coverage to be slightly less tomorrow then today but more convective 
in nature as instability will be on the rise /1000-1500 MLCAPE/. 
Overall coverage will diminish overnight Saturday into Sunday but 
much of the same expected Sunday afternoon with scattered showers and 
some thunderstorms with continued upper troughing. Temperatures in 
the middle to upper 80s expected tomorrow and again Sunday which is a 
slight cut from mavmos towards ecmos. A weak boundary will attempt 
to slide south into the region early Monday as a more potent shortwave 
trough pivots through and act to push some drier air /pwats 1.3"/ 
into north MS. /Allen/ 


Sunday through Friday 


The upper level trough will still be lingering over our region 
Sunday although weakening through the day. Surface high pressure will 
be centered north of our area and help filter in a little drier air 
into our County Warning Area on a north to northeast wind. Precipitable waters  will range from an 
inch and half north to near two inches in the south Sunday morning 
and drop below an inch and a half north of Interstate 20 by Monday 
morning. Greatest probability of precipitation Sunday will be carried over the southern half 
of the area. Precipitable waters  will drop further by Tuesday morning and change very 
little for Wednesday. Greatest probability of precipitation Monday through Wednesday will be 
carried over our southeast zones with very little chance for rain 
expected over our Delta Region. Mainly diurnally driven rain chances 
are expected Monday through Wednesday. Afternoon maximum temperatures 
will be a little below normal Sunday in the upper 80s and then be 
near normal in the lower 90s Monday through Wednesday. Morning lows 
will continue below normal Tuesday and Wednesday mornings in the 
upper 60s and be near normal in the lower 70s at most locations 
Thursday morning. There are some differences in the models with 
Thursday and Friday. The European model (ecmwf) is warmer and drier than the GFS. Both 
models indicate that surface ridging will strengthen along the Gulf 
Coast and the resulting southerly flow will increase low level 
moisture. The GFS keeps lower heights aloft over our region while the 
European model (ecmwf) strengthens middle level ridging over the Gulf states. Last 
night's model run featured another shortwave dropping out of the 
northern plains to the Great Lakes region by Friday morning. This 
feature is weaker and remains farther north in the latest run. A 
trend to above normal temperatures with lower rain chances looks to 
be the trend for the end of week. /22/ 


&& 


Aviation...VFR conditions will continue to mostly prevail at taf 
sites through tonight. A brief MVFR visibilities could be observed 
through the course where slightly heavier rainfall is observed from 
shower activity. Winds will gradually subside to light to calm later 
this evening. Broken to overcast higher level clouds will continue tomorrow 
with light northerly winds. /28/
