NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Jackson MS 
345 PM CDT Friday Apr 18 2014 


Discussion... 


Late this afternoon through Saturday night... 


Mostly light shower activity is focused with the middle level low center 
in the general vicinity of Natchez...but this energy will consolidate 
quickly with other energy over the Florida Panhandle region...bringing an end 
to rain chances early this evening. A few showers will remain 
possible over eastern MS closer to the middle level deformation zone. 


Skies may clear for most of the area later tonight...and with afternoon 
dewpoint/cross-over temperatures in the 50s and lows likely to fall 
significantly below cross-over temperatures...fog may be a concern 
late tonight into early Saturday morning. The risk is conditional on 
relaxation of boundary layer winds and sufficient clearing. In the 
wake of the middle level low...building middle level heights and surface 
high pressure will bring dry weather to the arklamiss with seasonable 
temperatures for the weekend. Thinking for the longer range forecast 
is generally the same and no adjustments were necessary. /Ec/ 


Sunday through next Friday... 


The tail end of Easter weekend still looks dry and warm but rain and 
general tstorm chances will increase Monday afternoon and peak Tuesday morning 
into the Tuesday afternoon as a weak boundary moves through. Temperatures 
look to be near to just slightly above normal through the period. 


Overall confidence remains above average with good model agreement 
in the medium range while slightly decreasing at the end of the 
period towards late next week with differing pattern progressiveness 
depicted between ec/GFS/Gem. The arklamiss will be on the western 
edge of a low amplified eastward progressing Omega block across the 
southern Continental U.S. By Sunday evening. 700 mb-500 mb troughing will approach the 
region by Monday morning while a weak surface trough Ushers a weak 
boundary towards the region. Top-down moisturizing still appears to 
be slow going Monday and have slowed timing just a bit more like 
yesterday with slightly less shower/tstorm coverage Monday morning and 
afternoon. Best coverage (scattered at best) will be across northern and 
some central areas as precipitable waters  climb towards 1.3" with 500-1000 j/kg 
SBCAPE present. Instability will wane through the evening but enough 
surface convergence from the weak boundary under moderate qg lift 
should keep shower activity going through the overnight mainly 
across the Highway 82 corridor. Weak boundary will push south through 
the day Tuesday and with diabatic heating expected ahead...SBCAPE 
values of 750-1500 j/kg should build and allow for regeneration of 
general thunderstorms late morning Tuesday into the afternoon. Shear and overall 
thermodynamics will limit potency of said thunderstorms to remain 
sub-strong. Widespread heavy rain also does not appear to be a risk 
and this will allow for swollen rivers to slowly abate. Will keep 
severe weather potential statement clear for this slightly more active period. 


For Wed-Fri...the weak boundary that settled near the coast will 
return north by early Friday while a strong surface low and parent 
trough develop across the central Continental U.S.. models are at odds on this 
feature and this will be watched for any potential impact on the 
arklamiss. This time frame will be warm with highs in the upper 70s 
low 80s and limited rainfall potential until possibly next weekend. 
/Allen/ 


&& 


Aviation...an abundance of MVFR category stratus will continue into 
the early evening for sites in eastern MS...otherwise expect VFR 
conditions to develop for most of the area later tonight. Some fog 
and/or low stratus will be possible during the late night and early 
morning hours. /28/ec/
