NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Jackson MS 
957 PM CDT Tuesday Jul 7 2015 


Update...coverage of storms this evening was a little greater and 
lasted longer than expected but have moved north of the County Warning Area and no 
additional convection is expected tonight. The forecast was updated 
earlier to account for the storms but probability of precipitation have been removed the 
remainder of the night. Sites that received rain were cooled rapidly 
and dew points were knocked down earlier this evening. Dew points 
have since recovered and forecast lows still look on track. /22/ 


&& 


Aviation...the isolated afternoon/evening convection has ended and no 
additional thunderstorms are expected tonight. Even less coverage of isolated 
thunderstorms is expected Wednesday. VFR conds were being observed areawide at 
02z and will prevail until 09z. After 09z there is a low chance of 
IFR/MVFR ceilings/visibilities due to stratus and fog especially in the 
southeast. Otherwise...VFR conds will prevail through Wednesday night. /22/ 


&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 333 PM CDT Tuesday Jul 7 2015/ 


Discussion...moderate cumulus was prevalent over the majority of 
forecast area this afternoon with even some isolated showers and 
thunderstorms over the southeastern two thirds. This activity has 
likely been enhanced by low to middle level southwesterly moisture 
infusion as well as 40-50 knot 300 mb jet streak passing over the 
area. 


Convective potential will become somewhat limited the next few days 
as subsidence/warming increases from the east as middle/upper level 
ridge builds in. Upper 60s dewpoints look to mix down Wednesday 
which will cause parcels to struggle more compared to today...thus 
not expecting any development. By Thursday...low to middle 70s 
dewpoints over eastern and southern sections will allow for some 
isolated development. 


Surface ridge axis will become oriented east-west across S MS by the 
weekend and will lead to light winds/less convergence and only a 
slight potential for convection. 


Temperatures will warm into the middle 90s over the weekend with heat indices 
approaching 105...especially along and near river channels where 
localized dewpoints will be in the middle 70s. 


Middle/upper level ridge will continue westward into the first part of 
next week and allow northwest flow...increasing rain chances and slightly 
cooler temperatures to return./26/
