NWS Forecaster Discussion

Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Jackson MS 
1042 am CST Monday Feb 8 2016 

Update...cold front is south of our County Warning Area and gusty northwest winds 
have developed in its wake. Wind gusts of 30 to 40 miles per hour have already 
been observed with the strongest winds over our northwest. The wind 
will meet Wind Advisory criteria over our northeast so the current 
advisory will remain in effect until 6pm. Visible satellite imagery 
only showed a few cumulus starting to develop over our County Warning Area at 10 am. The 
isolation today will be offset by the cold air advection but temperatures have risen 
to forecast highs already. Have raised afternoon highs a couple 
degrees and adjusted hourly temperature curves to match the trend. 
Hi-res models show very little precipitation over our northeast until this 
evening. Have removed probability of precipitation until middle afternoon over our northeast 
most zones. Dry weather is expected elsewhere. /22/ 


Aviation...VFR conditions will prevail at all taf sites through the 
next 24 hours. Clouds will increase today but should remain VFR. A 
cold front is moving through the region which is resulting in a wind 
shift out of the north and breezy conditions. Speeds of 20 to 25kts 
sustained will be possible especially at kglh with gusts to near 
30kts. Elsewhere....sustained winds of 15kts with gusts to near 
20kts are more likely. /28/ 


Previous discussion... /issued 308 am CST Monday Feb 8 2016/ 

Short through Tuesday night...water vapor imagery this 
morning showing impressive middle level trough axis diving rapidly southeast into 
the area. This system promises to bring another round of cool 
temperatures to contend with during the upcoming week. 

Two forecast problems to deal with today as temperatures begin cooling off. 
First...blustery winds will be seen behind the frontal system... 
currently entering the upper Delta as of 09z. These winds over the 
open terrain...lakes...and rivers of the Delta Region will likely 
exceed Wind Advisory criteria. Will...therefore...Post a Wind 
Advisory over the majority of the counties/parishes in the Delta 

Sencond forecast problem will be the potential for rain showers over 
the NE today and snow showers tonight. Steep low level lapse rates 
and enough moisture for at least pockets of shallow cape will support 
a few showers over the far NE. Hrrr/arw and nmm hint at this scenario 
in their reflectivity forecasts. These conditions will linger into 
the evening with further cooling in the column...resulting in some 
light snow showers mixing in with the rain. With the quick and light 
nature of the accumulations are expected. Precipitation 
should come to an end by midnight as drier air filters into the lower 

Long term...Wednesday through Sunday...quiet weather looks to 
overall persist across the forecast area through the majority of the 
long term forecast period. A cool start to the period on 
Wednesday...will be followed by a late week warm-up Thursday and 
Friday. Another cold front will drop south through the region 
during the course of the day Friday. An increase in cloud cover is 
expected as the front pushes through. Most of the forecast area 
currently looks to remain rain free with this front...but some 
pockets of light rain can't be ruled out...especially over the 
eastern half of the County Warning Area. 

High pressure at the surface will again build into the County Warning Area from the 
northwest through the we maintain northwest flow aloft. 
Near seasonable conditions will exist during this time as highs 
Saturday and Sunday afternoons range from the middle 40s to upper 50s. 
Lows both Saturday night will range from the middle 20s to middle 
30s...with middle 30s to middle 40s forecast for Sunday night. /19/
