Area forecast discussion...updated National Weather Service Jackson MS 1234 PM CDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 Update...did a quick update to raise maximum temperatures for this afternoon due to the lack of cloud coverage...and reduced probability of precipitation after looking at latest hires guidance for this afternoon. /27/17/ && Aviation...late this morning we were having some IFR-MVFR stratus across a good portion of the region in advance of an approaching warm front over southern Louisiana. Expect the ceilings to lift to VFR levels by the 17z. All sites will resume VFR conditions through this evening. Isolated to scattered thunderstorms will be possible I-55 and west this afternoon which could reduce categories briefly. /17/28/ && /previous discussion...448 am CDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 Discussion... Today through Thursday night...the upper ridge that was over the region on Tuesday has moved off to the east and the upper flow is expected to become a little more zonal today before becoming southwesterly later this evening and tonight. Latest 00z radiosonde observation shows drier air in place over the region with 1.37 inch precipitable water values on kjan...and just under an inch on klzk. Moisture still remains just to our south with 1.68 inch precipitable water values noted on klix 00z sounding and 1.84 inches on klch. Based on surface observations...the lower 60s/upper 50s dewpoints remain across north Mississippi and the middle to upper 60s and lower 70s dewpoints continue to be across the Highway 84 corridor and south. East to southeast winds that are currently present should shift more out of the south through the day. As this occurs...moisture will make a return back to the region especially in the west. Model bufr soundings show precipitable water values around 2 inches across the south...near 1.8 inches along I-20 and even around 1.5-1.6 inches in the Delta by late this afternoon and early evening. Daytime heating(with highs again well above normal and in the upper 80s/lower 90s) will combine with this influx of moisture to create potential for mainly diurnal showers and thunderstorms with the best chances in the southwest. Given the presence of moisture and continued southerly moist flow...a slight chance to chance of showers will be possible through the night tonight. The upper trough will deepen and continue to progress to the east...being located across the central and Southern Plains by 12z Thursday. It will continue to track to the east through the day on Thursday...while our region continues to moisten and warm ahead of this and its attendant cold front. Highs on Thursday will once again be in the 90s ahead of this front but conditions should be a little more cloudy. We will see more in the way of rain activity too as heating combines with this moist airmass ahead of the front. As the front nears...there is potential for a few severe storms especially across the Delta. Models show that by Thursday night...shear and instability should be increasing in this area. 30-40kts of deep layer shear will be present along with ml cape values around 1000-1300 j/kg. It looks like this system has slowed just a little since last nights model runs and this could be coming through more during the overnight than the evening. Either way...will continue to mention this potential for severe storms in the severe weather potential statement and graphics. /28/ Friday through Tuesday... Showers and thunderstorms are expected to linger over eastern MS Friday morning...but the risk for strong/severe storm activity will be diminished given weaker forcing and a more stable airmass. While temperatures may still manage to reach the lower 80s Friday afternoon...expect much drier and cooler air to move in Friday night bringing the first real taste of fall for the arklamiss. The northern stream trough continues to look impressive in the most recent guidance. Highs may not reach 70 degree f over portions of north central MS Saturday under sunny skies...and most locations are expected to see lows in the middle/upper 40s Saturday night with a few locations in north central MS possibly dipping into the upper 30s. The guidance seems aggressive with these lows...but given the recent dry conditions/dry soils and with high pressure and clear skies overhead...the guidance should be close. Quick moderation of the dry, cool airmass is expected Sunday night through early next week as the low level thermal through shifts eastward and southerly flow develops. A fast-moving shortwave trough may bring showers Monday into Monday night. /Ec/ && Preliminary point temps/pops...
