NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Jackson MS 
945 am CST Friday Nov 21 2014 


Update...high pressure across the Ohio Valley will push slowly east 
today allowing southerly flow to continue. This will slowly increase 
temperatures and dewpoints through the day. Have made the usual 
adjustments to the temperature and dew point trends but highs look 
good. Also...trimmed back small shower chances in our western areas a 
few hours but kept in for this afternoon. 


We will continue to evaluate the parameters for the system expected 
to impact the area Saturday night and Sunday morning. There still 
appears to be a window of opportunity for severe weather between 
approx 3am and noon Sunday. Also...will evaluate the potential for 
Sunday to be windy particularly in the southern portions of the 
forecast area. /SW/ 


&& 


Aviation...VFR conditions will prevail this taf period with some 
mix of middle level clouds across the west and then spreading over the 
area later tonight. As we approach midday Sat...some low end 
potential will exist for MVFR ceilings...but will not include in the 
new set of tafs at this time. /Cme/ 


&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 431 am CST Friday Nov 21 2014/ 


Short term...today through Sunday...the story for the short 
term continues to be the potential for severe storms Saturday night. 
High pressure will continue to prevail over much of the area today 
and with southerly flow the warming tend will continue with highs in 
the middle/upper 60s. With the better moisture along and west of the 
Mississippi River a few showers will be possible this afternoon over 
those areas. Little will change tonight with a few showers possible 
in the far west and slightly warmer overnight lows in the middle/upper 
40s. 


A very strong Pacific jet will dig out a deep upper trough and drop 
down into The Four Corners area Friday night into Saturday. 
Moisture will increase across the area Saturday afternoon into the 
evening hours out ahead of this system with precipitable waters  climbing to 
1.7-1.8 inches by late evening. The models have been slowing this 
system down the past few runs and by Saturday afternoon the 
negatively tilted trough will extend over central Texas with an 
associated surface low/frontal boundary. The models are in pretty 
good agreement on the timing of the system across the area Saturday 
night into Sunday morning. The wind shear with this system is 
impressive...but the big question continues to be the amount of 
instability with the system as it crosses the arklamiss. Both the 
GFS/European model (ecmwf) are showing around 100-300 j/kg of ml cape mainly over the 
southern portions of the area. The h700-h500 lapse rates are not to 
impressive either ranging from around 5.5-6.0 c/km. The latest run 
of the cips analog indicates the potential for severe across most of 
the area...so will leave our current risk areas with the greatest 
potential for severe along and south of I-20. 


The storms will shift east of the area by middle morning on Sunday with 
a few remnant showers possible in the east until early afternoon. 
Drier air will build in quickly Sunday afternoon with precipitable waters  falling 
below an inch by early evening. The GFS/European model (ecmwf) indicate h925 
temperatures around 18c on Sunday and this translates to very warm 
temperatures on Sunday with highs in the middle/upper 70s. 


Long term...Sunday night through next Friday... 


A dry and cooler pattern is in store for the arklamiss Thanksgiving 
week as a western ridge and eastern trough pattern sets up and 
brings dry northwest flow aloft. Expect surface temperatures to be 
5-10 degree f below normal for the most part. Cips shows substantial 
negative temperature anomalies...but this polar airmass will not be 
nearly as cold as the recent Arctic air outbreak. It appears the 
next significant chance for rainfall may not materialize until the 
first week of December. /Ec/
