AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON MS
926 PM CST TUE MAR 3 2015

.DISCUSSION...ISOLATED TO SCATTERED WARM ADVECTION SHOWERS CONTINUE
TO MOVE ACROSS THE AREA. WILL MAINTAIN RAIN AND FOG THROUGH THE
NIGHT. FOG WAS CONCENTRATED TO THE NORTHWEST AT THIS TIME...BUT THE
ATMOSPHERE IS SOGGY AND MSAS ANALYSIS SUGGESTS THERE WAS A WARM
FRONT ALONG THE COAST...SO COULD SEE FOG MOVING IN FROM THE COAST
INTO SOUTH CENTRAL MISSISSIPPI AND THE FOG OVER THE DELTA
MAINTAINING. EITHER WAY ADDED AREAS OF FOG EVERYWHERE. WILL HOLD OFF
ON A DENSE FOG ADVISORY AT THIS POINT. EXPECTING LIGHT SOUTHERLY
WINDS TO KEEP VISIBILITIES ABOVE ADVISORY LIMITS. ALSO MADE SOME
SMALL ADJUSTMENTS TO THE TEMPS FOR THE FAR NORTHWEST. VALUES WERE IN
THE UPPER 50S...WITH SOME SLIGHTLY COOLER VALUES NORTH AND WEST.
THINKING THERE COULD BE A LITTLE EVAPORATIVE COOLING IN THE NORTHWEST
TO LOWER VALUES ANOTHER DEGREE OR TWO. NO OTHER CHANGES ANTICIPATED.
UPDATE OUT SHORTLY.

.AVIATION...IFR CIGS/VSBY WILL BECOME WIDESPREAD AFTER 04/06Z WITH

FRONT MOVES ACROSS THE AREA. SHOWERS WILL ACCOMPANY THE FRONTAL
BOUNDARY...WITH VCTS POSSIBLE AFTER 04/18Z OVER MEI/HBG./26/
