Marine Weather and Tides
Bassfield, MS

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Update
Updated for 00z aviation discussion and forecast discussion for
tonight

Aviation
00z TAF discussion:
vcts will continue to be possible between glh, gwo, and gtr
through 24 03z. If any thunderstorms affect these sites, a brief
lowering of ceilings and visibilities to MVFR ifr can be expected
along with winds gusts up to 40 knots. Otherwise,VFR conditions
will prevail through the evening. After midnight, ifr MVFR
ceilings will increase from the south, begin rising after sunrise
and break apart to becomeVFR by 24 16z. 26

Discussion
Cumulus field along and north of a glh-gwo-gtr line becoming
increasingly congested in advance of a mid level shortwave,
currently moving across eastern ar. Cam guidance hinting at
convection developing in this area as the wave moves in and
interacts with the zone of high 0-3km theta-e air in place. Have
increased pops in this area to account for the expected scattered
coverage of convection through the early to mid evening. 26
previous discussion:
tonight and tomorrow...

area radars have been much quieter this afternoon than was the case
this time yesterday. Some showers have developed but not sustained
themselves for long, mainly in the highway 82 corridor. There
remains some potential for storms to develop through the remainder
of the afternoon in this area as daytime heating continues. However,
cloud cover has allowed this process to slow some with readings only
into the upper 80s. Cam guidance still hangs on to some storms
developing between now and 00z, so will continue to mention this
potential for an isolated severe storm in the hwo. Elsewhere,
capping has greatly allowed for a suppression of convection and this
should continue through the remainder of the afternoon and evening.

The main story for tomorrow will once again be the increasing heat
and humidity across the region. High temperatures once again will be
in the lower to mid 90s. This, coupled with dewpoints expected to be
in the lower to mid 70s, will bring heat indices to around 100 to
105 degrees across much of the area. The limited risk for this will
remain in place for the area. As heights continue to increase across
the area, this should lead to reduced convection once again
tomorrow. There could be a few storms to our north that might clip
the northern part of the forecast area. However, expect that most of
the region will remain dry once again. 28
Sunday night through Friday: the primary focus will be for the
build up of heat and humidity for heat stress levels for Sunday
through the upcoming work week.

We will start with flat ridging zonal flow over the region for
Saturday night with some diurnal activity. Going into early next
week the zonal flow will be pushed to the north as we get more
mid to upper level ridging developing from the east. To the west
an upper trough will be over the plains,which help to build the
mid to upper level ridge over the mississippi valley early next week.

The upper trough will swing east of the middle and upper mississippi
valley by the middle of the week which will fluctuate the ridge over
the region. As the upper trough moves off the atlantic seaboard
broad upper ridging will build in from the plains by Wednesday night.

The upper ridge will become entrenched over the eastern us by Friday
evening. With pwats approaching 2 inches expect to see diurnal
chances of convection with the best chances in the east. Heat stress
levels will rise to around 105 degrees daily.Und 105 degrees daily.

This may require some heat advisories to be issues during the week
with highs in mainly the lower 90s. So will keep the current heat
risk in the hwo for the upcoming work week. Nightly lows will be in
the lower to middle 70s. Residents should monitor for any heat
advisories in planning outdoor activities. 17
