AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON MS
926 PM CDT WED JUL 30 2014

.DISCUSSION...THE FORECAST WAS IN GOOD SHAPE. THE RAIN WAS
APPROACHING THE AREA...WITH LIGHT RAIN BEING REPORTED IN SOUTHEAST
ARKANSAS. GLH HAS SOME LIGHT RAIN...NOT SURE IT`S REAL. CLOUDS HAVE
SPREAD ACROSS THE REGION WITH A LIGHT NORTHEASTERLY WIND AT MOST
LOCATIONS. WIDESPREAD CLOUDS AND A POSSIBLE LIGHT WIND...NOT SURE
ABOUT NEAR RECORD LOWS FOR TONIGHT. COULD SEE SOME COLD AIR DRAINAGE
IN THE EAST ZONES...WITH NORTHEAST WINDS. THE DEWPOINTS WERE ALREADY
INCREASING IN THE WEST AND TEMPS WERE A LITTLE HIGHER THAN EXPECTED
FOR THIS TIME. MAY MAKE SOME SMALL TWEAKS. STILL LOOKS LIKE THE
DISTURBANCE WILL MOVE INTO THE AREA BY LATER AFTERNOON...WITH THE
SURFACE FEATURE MOVING ALONG THE FRONT INTO THE AREA BY
FRIDAY...KICKING OFF THE RAIN CHANCES GOING INTO THE WEEKEND.

&&

.AVIATION...MID AND HIGH CLOUDS ASSOCIATED A DISTURBANCE OVER THE
SOUTHERN PLAINS WILL CONTINUE TO SHIFT INTO THE REGION FROM THE WEST
THROUGH THIS EVENING AND OVERNIGHT.  DESPITE SOME SHOWERS MOVING
INTO THE DELTA...KGLH & KGWO...LATER THIS EVENING...VFR CONDITIONS
ARE EXPECTED TO CONTINUE THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE PERIOD. /17/
