Area forecast discussion...update National Weather Service Jackson MS 1025 am CDT Sat Mar 28 2015 Update...final clipper disturbance dropping down the backside of the anomalous eastern Continental U.S. Trough will impact the lower MS valley today...bringing clouds to much of the region. Some precipitation is currently noted (mainly north of the region) at this hour and model consensus agrees that some of these isolated and light showers will make it into the northern portion of the County Warning Area as we head in through the rest of the daylight hours. Interestingly...surface temperatures and temperature profiles aloft are just cold enough in some place to our north to result in sleet and flurry reports since early morning. There is a slight chance some light and brief sleet could make into the far corner of my arklamiss Delta zones this morning and this was included in the forecast update...but I must stress no impacts are anticipated with surface temperatures in the 40s. Still looks like many locales along and north of the Highway 82 corridor may struggle to get above 50 degrees this afternoon which is quite chilly indeed for late March. This should be contrasted sharply with a few spots in far southern zones that manage to sneak out some afternoon sun...helping boost highs up to or just above the 70 degree mark. /Bb/ && Aviation...cloud decks should be above 4 kft in all areas through day although some light showers will be possible through the afternoon...mainly north of the I-20 corridor. In short...anticipated mainly VFR through the next 24 hours. /Bb/ && Previous discussion... /issued 341 am CDT Sat Mar 28 2015/ Short term...amplified middle level flow pattern over the Continental U.S. Early this morning will gradually relax by the end of the period. A weak shortwave/speed maximum will drop rapidly southeast across the area today. With low level flow still remaining easterly...this system will be quite moisture starved. Thus expecting only light quantitative precipitation forecast from what manages to make it to the ground out of middle level cloud deck. Moving into the evening...the shortwave will have moved southeast with only lingering...but decreasing cloud cover behind. After a slow start to radiational cooling...do still expect mins tonight to drop into the middle 30s over the far NE where patchy frost may be seen as winds will be light. Surface high pressure moves east Sunday allowing southerly flow to set up in advance of the next middle level wave and its attendant cold front. The speed of this system will not allow much time for moisture return...but middle/upper 50 dewpoints do manage to pool immediately ahead of the boundary over north MS by Sunday evening. Model soundings indicate slight decoupling of the boundary layer ahead of the front...but also indicate around 500 j/kg of elevated cape and middle level lapse rates 7-8c/km. While anafrontal/isentropic lift will serve to develop the showery activity with the frontal forcing...may still be able to get some thunder if deep enough updrafts can tap into the middle level instability./26/ Long term...Monday through next Saturday...the cold front will continue to sink south into the forecast area Monday into Monday night with showers and a few storms scattered about across the region. As the front's middle/upper level support lifts out overnight Monday into Tuesday morning...the front will briefly stall over the southern half of the County Warning Area. The front will begin to lift back to the north Tuesday in response to a shortwave...embedded in quasi-zonal flow aloft...shifting east through the Southern Plains states. As the front lifts north...moisture will surge into the forecast area ahead of the approaching shortwave. This...in addition to daytime heating... will result in showers and storms again both Tuesday and Wednesday. There are some system evolution and timing differences in the GFS and European model (ecmwf) late in the period...Thursday through Saturday. Still... rain chances look to remain in the forecast Thursday and Friday as westerly flow aloft is currently prognosticated to bring other disturbance through the region where a warm moist airmass persists. A front dropping south through the region Friday night...could bring an end to rain chances for the start of the Easter weekend. /19/ && Preliminary point temps/pops...
