NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Jackson MS 
914 PM CDT Wednesday Jul 23 2014 


Update...kept chances of showers and storms going for much of the 
region through midnight. Added isolated showers into the early 
morning hours and also added patchy fog for many areas toward 
daybreak. /Bb/ 


&& 


Discussion...been an interesting late afternoon and evening with 
convection waiting to ramp up in coverage and intensity abnormally 
late in the day. Ohio yea...we also confirmed a rare waterspout over 
the Ross Barnett Reservoir. 


Edge of arriving upper level impulse helping boost activity was 
responsible for a large and intense thunderstorm complex pushing 
through the arklatex...but around here isolated to scattered 
activity has not been nearly as focused although slow to diminish 
after the setting of the sun. Latest RUC analysis depicts weak but 
deep moisture convergence over the northwest two-thirds of the County Warning Area 
occurring presently...as h850 flow impinges from the northwest in 
advance of a surface boundary expected to slide in from the north 
tomorrow. Although 00z Jan sounding revealed instability not 
terribly high the precipitable water values near 2 inches certainly 
enough to fuel heavy downpours. Anticipating the diurnal wane in 
instability should be enough to bring thunderstorms and heavy 
downpours mostly to an end by midnight although a few showers could 
persist into the early morning. Until midnight the slow moving and 
backbuilding nature of some storms will have to be monitored closely 
because of locally heavy rain potential. Toward sunrise enough 
clearing should occur to present a potential for fog development in 
areas that got or will get a downpour. This fog should not be Worth 
any type of advisory and of the kind that departs before 9 am. /Bb/ 


&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 319 PM CDT Wednesday Jul 23 2014/ 


Short term...tonight through Friday night. 


Not as much convection popped up today as anticipated despite precipitable waters  
being near 2 inches and above 2000 j/kg cape calculated from this 
morning's sounding. Scattered cumulus cover the County Warning Area currently with just a 
few radar echoes across the area. Whatever is left around sunset 
tonight will die quickly. 


Watching the trough axis/front move south/southeast through Arkansas 
and Oklahoma this afternoon. Convection associated with this should 
also die off after sunset tonight. The trough axis will push 
southeast through our County Warning Area on Thursday. Enough lift associated with 
the boundary should ignite more storms tomorrow afternoon. The front 
will stall in south and southeast Mississippi tomorrow evening. We 
are not expecting any severe weather with this activity. Strong 
gusty winds will be the main concern. Friday will be relatively 
quiet with only probability of precipitation in the southeast County Warning Area. Stuck with MOS guidance 
for temperatures over the next couple days. However...high temperatures were 
lowered just a tad since the area has been really struggling to 
reach temperatures in the 90s. MOS low temperatures look good. Patchy fog will be 
possible again tomorrow morning and will quickly dissipate after 
13z. /10/ 


Long term...Friday through next Wednesday...north to northwest 
flow aloft looks to remain over the forecast area through most of 
the forecast period as high pressure aloft centered near The Four 
Corners region remains wedged into the Southern Plains states... 
while longwave troughing encompasses much of the eastern half of the 
United States. This'll allow for a couple of rain-free days at a 
time...followed by a day or two of increased rain chances as another 
upper level disturbance tries to push a front south into and through 
the forecast area. 


Some slightly drier air will advect into the region Friday in the 
wake of the front now residing south of the County Warning Area. Saturday into 
Sunday...moisture will begin to subtly return to the County Warning Area as another 
front approaches from the north...with rain chances increasing 
Sunday night into Monday as the front push into and through the 
forecast area. This then looks to be followed by a couple of days 
of quite weather...Tuesday and Wednesday...in the wake of the front 
with some more slightly drier air filtering into the region at that 
time. 


As far as temperatures are concerned...for the most part I stuck 
close to guidance with lows through much of the period. However... 
I did adjust highs down a bit here and there each day...particularly 
on Saturday and Sunday. Both days...I lowered highs a few degrees 
across the board as I felt upper 90s were too high. Much of this 
stems from just the pattern in general we're currently observing and 
the affects of recent heavy rainfall over the area keeping a higher 
moisture content in the soil and vegetation over the area. As a 
result... highs for both Saturday and Sunday are now forecast to be 
in the low to middle 90s. /19/ 


&& 


Aviation...isolated heavy downpours will have potential to bring 
very localized IFR conditions through midnight. Otherwise...expect 
light and variable winds with potential for patchy MVFR to IFR 
conditions by daybreak Thursday...especially in areas where rain 
fell heavy late today (such as gwo). Tomorrow winds will still be 
light but primarily from the northwest and north with isolated to 
scattered showers and thunderstorms again developing in the midday 
to afternoon hours. Conditions after tomorrow morning should be 
primarily VFR away from said thunderstorms. /Bb/
