AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON MS
918 PM CDT WED OCT 1 2014

.DISCUSSION...THE RAIN HAS ENDED ACROSS THE CWA...SO REMOVED THE RAIN
FOR TONIGHT. MUCH OF THE ACTIVITY WAS CONFINED TO THE SOUTH...WITH
SOME ISOLATED ACTIVITY IN THE CWA THAT DIED WHEN THE SUN WENT DOWN.
NOT ANTICIPATING ANY REDEVELOPMENT TONIGHT. WINDS WERE STILL GOING
FROM 5 TO 10 KTS FOR MUCH OF THE AREA AND MOISTURE SEEMS TO BE SLOWLY
INCREASING...SO TEMPS SHOULD FALL SLOWLY. LOOKING FOR WINDS TO
DIMINISH ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST...SO ADDED PATCHY FOG AFTER MIDNIGHT.
INCREASING CLOUDS IN ADDITION TO THE WINDS SHOULD KEEP TEMPERATURES A
LITTLE WARMER THAN EXPECTED...SO RAISED LOWS SLIGHTLY. LOWER 70S SEEM
OK BUT COULD BE A LITTLE WARMER ACROSS THE SOUTHWEST. THERE WAS SOME
SLIGHTLY COOLER AND DRIER AIR IN THE EAST...BUT LOWS SHOULD STILL BE
AROUND 70. OVERALL THE FORECAST WAS GOOD. TWEAKED THE HOURLY VALUES
TO ACCOUNT FOR THE WARMER TEMPS IN THE WEST.

.AVIATION...WIDESPREAD MVFR CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED FROM 10 TO 15
UTC DUE MAINLY TO LOW CEILINGS. IFR CONDITIONS AND SOME FOG WILL BE
MORE LIKELY IN THIS TIME FRAME AT PIB/HBG. A COMPLETE BREAK OUT TO
ALL VFR CONDITIONS MAY BE HARD TO COME BY UNTIL LATER IN THE
AFTERNOON IN A FEW SPOTS WITH SCATTERED SHOWERS AND FEW
THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLY DEVELOPING DURING THE DAY. MORE CONSOLIDATED
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE ANTICIPATED LATE TOMORROW NIGHT. SOUTH
WINDS TOMORROW WILL BE BETWEEN 10 TO 15 MPH AND A LITTLE GUSTY AT
TIMES. /BB/
