NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Jackson MS 
937 am CST Friday Feb 27 2015 


Update...15z surface analysis indicated high pressure centered 
across the Midwest with ridging down into our region. Cold northerly 
winds...cloud cover and snow cover in spots will contribute to 
slowing temperature rises. The low level cloud cover should gradually 
break up but will be replaced with increasing high level cloudiness 
later today. Current forecast looks good and no changes are planned 
other than adjusting hourly temperatures to fit current trends. /SW/ 


&& 


Aviation...have some clear skies across the Delta Region late this 
morning for the kglh and kgwo taf sites. MVFR ceilings were noted 
elsewhere. Expect the other sites to become VFR ceilings during the 
afternoon and evening. The winds will remain northerly 7-10 knots with 
gusts of 15-20 knots for this afternoon. The gusts will taper off by 
this evening. Winds will become light easterly overnight./17/ 


&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 402 am CST Friday Feb 27 2015/ 


Short term...today through Saturday night...cold high pressure will 
continue to build across the arklamiss today as strong cold air 
advection keeps temperatures cool. Highs today will range from near 
freezing in the Delta to the upper 40s in Hattiesburg. Another cold 
night is on tap for tonight with lows falling back into the 20s and 
low 30s. 


The surface high centered over the Ohio Valley will shift to the 
East Coast on Saturday and this will allow the surface flow to 
become more easterly and thus more neutral advection and with some 
sun...temperatures will warm into the 50s to near 60 in the south. 
The surface flow will become more southeasterly Saturday night and 
with increasing moisture a few showers will be possible by Sunday 
morning. Lows will also be warmer ranging from the upper 30s in the 
Delta to near 50 in the south./15/ 


Long term...Sunday through Friday...rain chances return Sunday and 
continue through middle week along with a warming trend through 
Tuesday. Sunday morning the large >1040mb surface high will be 
centered over the middle Atlantic Seaboard resulting in a weak return 
flow over our County Warning Area. A large closed low will be dropping south over 
California inducing middle level ridging over the Gulf Coast states. 
This will lead to warmer temperatures and a slow increase in deep 
moisture Sunday. Enough moisture will be present to support a few 
showers Sunday aided by a weak shortwave in the southwest flow 
aloft. Models suggest some elevated instability over our southwest 
to produce a few rumbles of thunder Sunday afternoon. Also Sunday a 
northern stream shortwave will race across the northern plains and 
Great Lakes region. This will help support a surface low that will 
drop a weakening cold front into our northern zones after midnight 
Sunday night prolonging rain chances Sunday night. Monday our flow 
aloft will back more to the southwest as the closed low opens up 
over the Desert Southwest. Models are in good agreement that the 
cold front will drop into central Mississippi and stall as it 
quickly looses its upper level support. The stalled front will serve 
to focus convection into Tuesday before lifting north as a warm 
front. Despite the clouds and rain chances Monday through Tuesday 
warmer than normal temperatures are expected with Tuesday still 
looking like the warmest day of the long term period where afternoon 
highs will climb up into the 70s over much of the area. By Monday 
afternoon precipitable waters  will be back near an inch and three quarters with 
surface dew points in the middle along and south of the stalled front. 
The warm moist airmass will spread over the whole area by Tuesday 
afternoon in the wake of the warm front. Tuesday into Tuesday night 
another shortwave will dive down the western Continental U.S. And support a 
second surface low that track northeast and drop another cold front 
into our County Warning Area Wednesday. The Canadian and GFS are faster than the 
European model (ecmwf) in bringing the cold front into central Mississippi by noon 
then southeast of our County Warning Area by evening. Models show heaviest quantitative precipitation forecast Post 
frontal with this system but MLCAPE approaches 1000j/kg in a 
strongly sheared(although unidirectional) environment along and 
ahead of the front. Although there are timing differences a few 
strong to severe storms look possible over the southeast half of our 
County Warning Area Wednesday afternoon as the front moves through. The mean upper 
level trough that has been lingering over the southwest Continental U.S. Since 
the weekend will finally shift east Wednesday night and Thursday 
helping to bring a much cooler and drier airmass to the region. 
There are large Standard deviations in the GFS ensemble guidance 
temperatures Wednesday through Thursday but a return to cooler than 
normal temperatures with below freezing morning lows look to be 
instore for Thursday and Friday. /22/ 


&& 


Aviation... 
MVFR conditions prevail at most taf sites this morning and 
this will continue through much of the morning. Expect Jan/hks/mei/hbg 
to become VFR by late morning/early afternoon...but persistant low 
level moisture may keep MVFR conditions at gwo/glh/gtr through much 
of the period. The winds will remain northerly 7-10kts through most 
of the period becoming easterly by early Saturday./15/
