NWS Forecaster Discussion




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/
