Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Jackson MS 
417 PM CST Friday Jan 30 2015 


Discussion... 
short term (tonight through Sunday night)...tranquil weather 
conditions will continue into Saturday as the surface ridge axis 
shifts east of the area. A fairly cold night is expected tonight with 
slightly below normal lows. Winds will be light...even calm at times 
in some locales...but high clouds will continue to stream across the 
region which will prevent more substantial cooling. 


Surface flow will remain out of the east/east-southeast for much of the day 
Saturday before finally shifting around to southeast Saturday night. This 
will delay substantial moisture return ahead of our next system set 
to impact the region on Sunday. High clouds will begin to increase 
on Saturday as the subtropical jet strengthens over the Southern 
Plains/northwest Gulf. Meanwhile a potent northern stream shortwave will 
swing southeastward into the middle Mississippi and Ohio valleys. This 
will push a cold front across the region Sunday evening. Ahead of the 
front...light rain will begin to spread into the area late Saturday 
night...becoming more showery and widespread on Sunday. Latest 
guidance continues to bring the surface low farther north... 
suggesting better moisture return over a larger portion of the County Warning Area. 
However it appears that it will be too little too late for 
substantial instability to develop as raw model dewpoints struggle to 
reach the lower 60s even in the southern fringe of the area. In spite 
of the meager instability...favorable wind shear will be sufficient 
for isolated storms mainly during the afternoon and early evening 
Sunday. 


Temperatures will cool quickly behind the front Sunday night as 
precipitation begins to taper off across the area. Forecast soundings 
indicate there could even be some flurries over northeastern zones in 
the early morning hours Monday. While the temperature profile may be 
supportive of flurries over a larger area...it currently appears 
moisture will not be sufficiently deep in those areas. For now...a 
slight chance of flurries was added for the Golden Triangle area. 
This is not a situation that will evolve into anything other than a 
few brief flurries. /Dl/ 


Long term (monday through next friday)... 
greater amplification of the trough could draw colder air southward 
Sunday night into Monday. Would not be surprised to see a few 
locations along the Highway 82 corridor experience marginal hard 
freeze criteria in the Monday-Tuesday time frame..but for the most part 
just expect a typical middle-winter cold snap with highs struggling to 
reach the upper 30s to middle 40s Monday afternoon while lows dip well 
into the 20s Monday night. 


Looking ahead to middle/late next week...guidance is fairly consistent 
in showing that the cutoff low over the southwest Continental U.S. Will kick out 
and develop a low pressure system over the northern Gulf of Mexico 
while another surge of very chilly air surges south through the 
central/eastern Continental U.S.. as has been consistently indicated...models do 
not link the system/cold air up in time to support wintry precipitation in 
the arklamiss...so expect this will be an all rain event if the 
trends continue. There is quite a bit of inconsistency and model 
spread in just how much cold air moves behind the system late in 
the week...but the cold has the potential to be highly anomalous. 
/Ec/

Aviation...with high clouds streaming southeast through the region 
..VFR conditions will continue to prevail across the forecast area. 
Cirrus will continue to race southeast overhead through much of the 
period. Winds today will be northerly around 10 knots. Winds will 
subside later this afternoon...and become more northeasterly around 
5 knots overnight into early Saturday morning. /17/
