NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Jackson MS 
430 am CST Sat Dec 20 2014 


Short term...today through Sunday night...with the exception of our 
southeast...a dry weekend is expected. Early morning surface 
analysis had a ridge just to our northwest emanating from a high 
centered over the northern Great Lakes region and a low over the 
northern Gulf just southeast of the Louisiana coast. Water vapor 
imagery/RUC analysis showed a shortwave trough nearing our Delta 
Region that will swing east of Mississippi by noon and help keep 
the Gulf surface low tracking east. This will help end the remaining 
light rain that was falling over our southeast zones. Dry weather is 
expected today for the remainder of the County Warning Area. The drier air aloft in 
the wake of the shortwave and the low level dry north to northeast 
flow from the surface ridge should help the sun to break through 
from the north this afternoon. Despite some insolation temperatures 
are still expected to top out cooler than normal and generally in 
the low to middle 50s. Tonight will be cool and dry with our sites in 
the northeast bottoming out near freezing Sunday morning. The 
surface ridge will remain over our County Warning Area Sunday while our winds aloft 
back to the southwest ahead of the next approaching shortwave 
trough. This shortwave will swing across the area Sunday night and 
support another surface low over the northern Gulf. Models suggest a 
low potential of light rain chances over our southeast zones Sunday 
night. Model consensus tracks this weak surface low a little farther 
south than the current surface low tracking over the Gulf this 
morning. The dry east flow around the surface ridge Sunday will 
limit return flow until Sunday night when it weakens. This in turn 
will limit rain chances and quantitative precipitation forecast amounts in our County Warning Area Sunday night.

Long term...Monday through Saturday...looks like a pretty active 
long term forecast for the arklamiss. Monday looks like it will be 
mostly dry across the area with precipitable waters  generally less the .75 inches 
across the area. Moisture will be on the increase Monday night out 
ahead of a deepening upper trough over the plains and associated 
cold front. Showers will be on the increase early on Tuesday out 
ahead of the system with thunderstorms developing during the day. 
There is some timing differences between the models and also the 
models differ on the track of the surface low. The European model (ecmwf) has shifted 
the surface low track a little to the east and this will allow the 
best instability/shear to be east of the area while the GFS is a 
little further to the west. The NAM is a little slower with the 
boundary and indicates 400-600 j/kg of ml cape along with a decent 
amount of shear. 0-3 helicity values range from 220 in the west to 
340 m^2/s^2 in the east. Due to these reasons along with severe cips 
analogs lining up with this event...will introduce at least a 
limited risk of severe in the severe weather potential statement/graphicasts for Tuesday. 


The cold front will shift to the east of the area and surface high 
pressure ridging will build in on Wednesday. A cool day is on tap 
with highs topping out in the 40s across much of the area. The high 
pressure system will shift across the northern Gulf and the flow 
will once again swing around to the south early on Thursday. Expect 
a warmup to begin as upper ridging briefly builds across the area 
before another strong upper trough depends over the plains. 


Moisture will begin to increase across the area on Friday with 
another chance of showers/thunderstorms. The European model (ecmwf) has been the more 
aggressive model for the potential for severe once again late in the 
week...while the GFS is not as deep with the upper trough and is 
weaker with the cold front. Both of the models build high pressure 
into the area on Saturday./15/ 


&& 


Aviation...a surface low tracking east over the northern Gulf was 
helping produce light rain over southeast MS and widespread IFR ceilings over 
the southern half of MS early this morning. This low will track east 
today and conditions will eventually improve from the northwest later 
this morning. MVFR ceilings may persist until 18z over mei-hbg. VFR 
conds are expected by middle afternoon and will continue tonight. /22/
