AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION...UPDATED
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE JACKSON MS
907 PM CST THU NOV 27 2014

.UPDATE...QUIET NIGHT IN STORE FOR THE ARKLAMISS REGION AS THE REGION
REMAINS UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE. WITH CLEAR
SKIES EXPECTED AND LIGHT WINDS...TEMPERATURES SHOULD CONTINUE TO FALL
DECENTLY THROUGH THE EVENING AND OVERNIGHT HOURS. THIS WILL MAKE FOR
A COLD NIGHT FOR THOSE VENTURING OUT TO LATE NIGHT SHOPPING. CURRENT
TEMPERATURES ARE ALREADY AT OR SLIGHTLY ABOVE FREEZING FOR MANY
LOCATIONS NORTH OF I-20 WITH TEMPERATURES IN THE MID TO UPPER 30S
SOUTH OF I-20. OVERNIGHT LOWS WILL DROP TO THE UPPER 20S AND AROUND
30 FOR THE ARKLAMISS. CURRENT FORECAST IS IN GOOD SHAPE BUT DID DROP
LOWS TONIGHT PER THE CURRENT TRENDS. /28/

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 432 PM CST THU NOV 27 2014/

DISCUSSION...SKY CONDITIONS MAY BE THE BIGGEST CONCERN IN THE SHORT
TERM. THE WEATHER WILL BE QUIET THROUGH THE WEEKEND. WHILE THE
TROUGH AXIS STILL SEEMS TO BE IN PLACE OVER THE MID SOUTH...DRY AIR
FROM THE WEST WAS FINALLY ERODING THE CLOUD DECK. EXPECTING THE AREA
TO BE CLEAR FOR MUCH OF THE NIGHT. HOWEVER...THERE IS SOME UPPER
LEVEL MOISTURE OVER THE PLAINS AND MODELS CONTINUE TO SHOW MOISTURE
NOSING INTO THE CWA OVERNIGHT. RIGHT NOW...NOT ANTICIPATING ANOTHER
OVERCAST PERIOD FOR THE NORTHERN TIER OF COUNTIES TONIGHT...BUT MAY
SEE SOME HIGH STUFF. USED A BLEND FOR THE LOWS. THE MAV TOOK THE
NORTHEAST INTO THE MID 20S...LOOKING FOR WINDS TO COME AROUND BEFORE
DAYBREAK AND REMAIN LIGHT THROUGH MORNING. WARM AND MOIST AIR WILL
RETURN ON SATURDAY AHEAD OF THE NEXT BOUNDARY. THE AREA MAY SEE SOME
HIGHS IN THE 70S BOTH SATURDAY AND SUNDAY. THE FRONT LOOKS LIKE IT
WILL MOVE IN SUNDAY NIGHT WITH RAIN/CLOUDS LINGERING THROUGH
TUESDAY. NOT SOLD ON THE LOW TEMPS DURING THAT PERIOD WITH CLOUDS
AND WARM AIR HANGING AROUND...NOT SURE WE WILL REALLY SEE VALUES
NEAR 40. THE NEXT SYSTEM DEVELOPS THURSDAY NIGHT INTO FRIDAY. LOOKS
LIKE ANOTHER WEAK FRONT WITH SOME RAIN. THE BEST DYNAMICS WILL BE
WELL TO THE NORTH OF THE CWA...KEPT THE HAZARDS CLEAR. /07/
