AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON MS
1101 AM CST THU NOV 27 2014

.UPDATE...OVERALL THE FORECAST WAS GOOD. MADE A FEW ADJUSTMENTS TO
THE TEMPERATURES AND CLOUD COVER. CLOUDS ASSOCIATED WITH THE TROUGH
AXIS OVER THE MID SOUTH SPREAD SOUTH INTO THE NORTHERN PORTIONS OF
THE CWA. WITH THE AREA CLOUDY AND COOLER THAN EXPECTED...TWEAKED THE
HOURLY VALUES AND INCREASED THE CLOUDS. MODELS DO NOT HAVE A GREAT
HANDLE ON WHEN THE CLOUDS WILL CLEAR...SO KEPT THEM IN THROUGH LATE
AFTERNOON. LOWERED THE HIGHS NORTH OF HIGHWAY 82 A DEGREE OR TWO.
RAISED VALUES IN THE CLEAR ZONE A DEGREE OR TWO...WHERE VALUES WERE
ALREADY WARMER THAN EXPECTED. EXPECTING THE RIDGE TO MOVE IN THIS
AFTERNOON/EVENING AND BRING IN THE COLD AIR...SO LOOKING FOR VALUES
TO FALL QUICKLY AFTER SUNSET. MAY HAVE TO SHOW VALUES STEADY UNDER
THE CLOUDS FOR A SHORT PERIOD. ZONES HAVE BEEN SENT.


&&

.AVIATION...LOW CLOUDS ASSOCIATED WITH STRONG NW FLOW SYSTEM PASSING
THROUGH TN THIS MORNING HAVE GOTTEN FAR ENOUGH SW TO AFFECT HIGHWAY
82 TAF SITES. AMDTS ISSUED TO SHOW THESE LOW CLOUDS BUT WITH CIGS
AROUND 3000 FT CONDITIONS STILL PRIMARILY VFR. THESE LOW CLOUDS
SHOULD DISSIPATE WITH DAYTIME HEATING AND AS SYSTEM PULLS AWAY GIVEN
SHALLOW NATURE OF MOISTURE AND DECREASING SUPPORT. GENERALLY CLEAR
SKIES EXPECTED ONCE THOSE CLOUDS ARE GONE. 925 MB NORTHERLY FLOW OF
20-25 KT IN COLD ADVECTION CREATED A LITTLE GUSTINESS THIS
MORNING...BUT THIS FLOW IS EXPECTED TO RELAX THROUGH THE DAY AS
STRONG HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS IN FROM THE NW. CLEAR SKIES/CALM WINDS
EXPECTED TONIGHT INTO FRI AM...WITH SWLY WINDS DEVELOPING FRI AS
HIGH PULLS EAST OF AREA.                                /08/
