NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Jackson MS 
320 PM CDT Thursday Sep 3 2015 


Short term...tonight through Saturday night...in the wake of last 
night's shortwave...greater heights and a little drier air mass 
today has limited convection this afternoon despite greater 
insolation areawide. The blended total precipitable water product was still showing 
two inch precipitable waters  across the southern half of our County Warning Area and local radars 
showed a few isolated showers at middle afternoon. Isolated showers and 
a thunderstorm or two will remain possible over our southeast through 
early evening. Water vapor imagery/rap analysis this afternoon was 
showing the circulation around the 590dam ridge over the Southern 
Plains. This ridge will strengthen and spread east through Saturday 
becoming a greater influence over our County Warning Area. Surface high pressure will 
remain centered northeast of our County Warning Area and remain weak through the 
short term. This will maintain very light winds surface and 
aloft...but continue to prevent the higher dew point air over 
northern Gulf from moving up into our area. So although afternoon 
highs will top out warmer in the middle 90s Friday and Saturday 
afternoons...heat index values will not be a concern as middle to lower 
6o dew points mix down each afternoon. It will be hard to rule out an 
isolated shower or storm areawide each afternoon but the greatest 
chance for rain will continue over our southern zones through the 
weekend. /22/ 


Long term...Sunday through next Wednesday...upper level pattern 
will be quite amplified at the beginning of the period with 
ridge...centered over Texas...extending well northward into the Great 
Lakes region. This will put the County Warning Area in light middle/upper level 
northerly flow. Meanwhile at the surface...sprawling surface ridge 
extending southward from the NE US will maintain light 
northeasterly/easterly flow keeping a relatively dry airmass with 
60s dewpoints across the County Warning Area. 


Model soundings not indicating much in the way of afternoon 
instability each day as warm temperatures aloft keep convective available potential energy and lapse rates 
down...but still enough around for mainly isolated type convection 
each afternoon/early evening. Will continue to see afternoon maxes in 
the low to middle 90s with mins at night around 70. /26/

Aviation...vcty rain showers activity will affect hks-Jan-mei-hbg this 
afternoon/early evening before dissipating by 02z Friday. Otherwise...VFR 
conditions expected through the taf period except for a brief 
period of MVFR fog late tonight at kmei and khbg. /SW/
