NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Jackson MS 
809 PM CDT Friday Apr 29 2016 


Update...probability of precipitation have been lowered the remainder of the night as the 
last of today's activity was dissipating over the northeast. 
Additional convection is expected to spread in from the west Saturday 
morning. Temperatures were knocked down along the Highway 82 
corridor due to the earlier convection. Have adjusted temperature 
curves but with continued cloud cover and an east to southeast wind 
through the night morning lows still looked on track. /22/ 


&& 


Aviation...isolated rain showers/thunderstorms and rain activity was dissipating over the NE at 
01z and no additional development is expected tonight until after 
12z in the northwest. VFR conds will prevail this evening but MVFR/IFR ceilings are 
expected to develop by 10z areawide and continue until 15z. VFR conds will 
prevail Sat away from thunderstorms and rain activity which will begin in the northwest Sat 
morning and spread over the central portions of the area during the 
afternoon. /22/

Previous discussion... /issued 359 PM CDT Friday Apr 29 2016/ 


.Severe thunderstorms and locally heavy rain will continue to be 
an increasing threat in the short term... 


Short term...(tonight through Sunday night)...latest satellite 
imagery showed an upper trough over The Rockies...which had become 
negatively tilted with an associated nearly closed low near The Four 
Corners region. An upper jet segment of 110 knots was coming at the 
base of the upper trough. A series of short waves was coming out of 
the upper trough in the southern stream from the southwest. The 
subtropical jet was noted to the south over the Gulf. Otherwise an 
mesoscale convective system was noted around the midsouth region...which has some severe and 
locally heavy rain risks. The activity was staying north of I-20 due 
to the strength for the cap across the south half of the region. On 
the surface a warm front was noted across the northwest. 


For tonight through Saturday night...expect an active period as the 
closed low near The Four Corners region brings in a series of short 
waves in from the southwest. This will bring a risk of some severe 
weather for the north tonight and for the western areas on Saturday 
and Saturday night. There will be good instability and forcing with 
these short waves. The primary risks through the period will be 
damaging winds...Golf Ball sized hail and a possible tornado. Per 
previous discussion it will probably become more of a heavy rain 
issue as we push into the Saturday night. 


As far as heavy rain potential is concern moisture transport will be 
impressive with precipitable waters  around 1.8 to 2 inches...which will bring some 
flash flood potential. Right now it looks like we will be looking at 
around 3-5 inches with locally higher amounts possible. Wpc has a 
slight risk of exceeding flash flood guidance for the extreme 
northwest for tonight...then most of the area for Saturday into 
Saturday night. So with the models bringing wave after wave over the 
County Warning Area will put out a Flash Flood Watch. Will begin in the northwest 
area for tonight...then expand across most of the region for 
Saturday into Saturday night. So with this in mind put in heavy rain 
wording in the grids. 


For Sunday into Sunday night...our chances of convection will 
continue through the rest of the short term. Wpc has a slight 
risk of rainfall exceeding flash flood guidance for the south 
during the period generally south of Interstate 20. For now 
will not mention locally heavy on any graphics for this period. 


As far as temperatures are concern highs will be in the 80s and lows 
will be in the 60s./17/ 


Long term...(monday through thursday)...a series of shortwaves will 
continue our rain chances through early next week. A sharp shortwave 
will finally end the rain from the west by Wednesday. This will put 
the region under a deep upper trough with a blocking ridge over The 
Rockies. So dry northwest flow aloft will set up a dry period regime 
over the region for the remainder of the work week. As we move into 
the weekend models differ on what kind of upper ridging develops over 
the region in any case this will continue our bout of dry weather 
through the weekend according to the GFS...while the Euro tries to 
bring in some rain by the end of the weekend. 


As far as temperatures are concern highs will be mainly in the 70s and lows 
will be mainly in the 50s./17/
