NWS Forecaster Discussion

Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Jackson MS 
345 PM CDT Wednesday Apr 23 2014 

Short term...tonight through Friday night...visible satellite 
imagery clearly shows decent cumulus field along the Gulf Coast trying to 
move north into our County Warning Area but ridging surface and aloft was 
suppressing development over our County Warning Area so far. The ridges will shift 
east tonight and Thursday and allow moisture to increase over our 
County Warning Area ahead of an approaching low pressure system. Clear skies this 
evening will give way to some cloud cover from the west by morning 
and patchy fog development is again expected along the Highway 84 
corridor. Water vapor imagery shows a shortwave moving east of The 
Four Corners region this afternoon that will move east northeast 
across the plains Thursday. This will help a surface low lift out to 
the northeast from the Southern Plains. The pressure gradient 
associated with this low will lend to some breezy south winds across 
our area...especially over the northwest half by afternoon. A Wind 
Advisory is not anticipated at this time. The breezy south wind will 
help a warm front lift back north across our County Warning Area along with a 
moisture increase. Warmer than normal temperatures are expected 
Thursday as temperatures top out in the lower 80s. As moisture and 
instability increase the associated cold front will approach our 
County Warning Area. It appears that the cold front will not make it into the Delta 
until the evening. The best forcing with the system will track well 
to our north and capping is expected to limit storm development 
south of I-20 but model consensus still suggests 1000-1500mlcape and 
sufficient shear for a few severe storms mainly along and northwest 
of a Winnsboro Yazoo Eupora MS line during the 
evening hours. The main risks should be hail and damaging wind 
gusts. The activity should wane in intensity the further east in 
the forecast area. Model consensus stalls the front near the Highway 
84 corridor Friday morning. Slightly cooler and drier air is 
expected Friday across our northern half limiting convection but a 
few storms will be possible in the south along the stalled front. 
Friday night the stalled front will drift north as a weak warm 
front. No convection is currently expected along the warm front. 

Long term...Saturday through Wednesday...broad ridging will be in 
place for Saturday. This ridging will become a little greater over 
the area which should result in highs in the 80s...lows in the 60s 
and generally dry weather. Our next big system will affect the 
region for the end of the weekend into early next week. Early Sunday 
morning...a large upper level low developing across the southwestern 
United States will eject northeastward and take on a bit of a 
negative tilt. As this occurs...a surface low will also develop on the 
leeside of The Rockies and track with this upper low across the 
south Central Plains and into Missouri by Monday. The European model (ecmwf) is a 
little more intense with this surface low than the GFS on the 00z 
run...but both keep it sub-1000mb. Ahead of this...moisture will 
increase across the region with model precipitable water values around 1.6-1.8 
inches depicted through Monday. This will fall around the 99th 
percentile with regards to climatology for this time of 
year...meaning this should lead to efficient heavy rainfall. It 
appears that some locations could see anywhere from 1-3 inches of 
rain(locally higher amounts) during the Sunday through Tuesday time 
period. In addition...models show the potential for multiple rounds 
of storms from about Sunday afternoon/night through Monday before 
tapering off late Monday night into early Tuesday as the front 
passes through. While the details will certainly change over the 
course of the next several days...parameters look good for all types 
of severe weather during this time. Vertical totals increase to 
around 29-30c by Sunday afternoon and instability wont be an issue 
as models bring middle 60s dewpoints into the region...with even some 
70 degree dewpoints. It looks like the better instability/in terms 
of most unstable and SBCAPE/ will come on Monday across the entire 
area with values around 2500-3000j/kg. Plenty of shear will be 
available as low level values will be around 30-40kts and deeper 
layer shear will be around 40-50kts. Will keep monitoring this over 
the next several days and will remain mentioning this in the 

The rain will exit the region during the morning hours Tuesday but 
the large upper low and surface low will continue to spin across the 
middle-Mississippi River valley region through at least the end of the 
period. Both the GFS and European model (ecmwf) move it very slowly to the east 
through the end of the week...leaving the southeastern United States 
under large scale troughing. This will lead to cooler...below 
normal...temperatures into the early days of may. /28/ 


Aviation...VFR conds continue to prevail this afternoon with light and 
variable winds across the region. VFR will continue through period 
with exception of khbg where low IFR stratus/fog combo will be 
possible 09-14z with VFR returning quickly thereafter. Lower cloud 
bands will move in from west Thursday afternoon with some rain showers and thunderstorms and rain 
likely for kgwo/kglh after 25/00z. /Allen/
