Discussion
Rest of today through Tuesday:
numerous showers and thunderstorms are ongoing across the CWA with a
few storms reaching severe criteria. Latest water vapor imagery
shows a mid/upper level shortwave over SW missouri with the trough
axis extending down the ms river valley. Current SPC mesoanalysis
has anywhere from 1000-2000 j/kg of MLCAPE across the region with
moderate to steep 6.5-7 c mid level lapse rates in conjunction with
30-40 kts of effective bulk shear. This will help to maintain a
severe thunderstorm threat across the majority of the area with the
main threats being large hail (some of which could exceed golf
ball size in the strongest storms) and damaging winds. Shear
remains weak, especially in the low levels, and LCL heights are
relatively high so any tornado threat will remain isolated to the
strongest storms at best. The best potential for severe weather
will be along and north of the i-20 corridor through the early
evening hours, however severe storms are possible across the
entire area. Storms will tend to weaken into the evening as
instability wanes and the best forcing for ascent continues to
pull out to the north and east. Scattered shower and isolated
storm potential will remain during the evening in the NW where the
lingering frontal boundary will become quasi-stationary.

Otherwise, fog potential will return in a moist boundary layer,
especially across the SE and in the fog prone areas. Added mention
in the forecast, but left it out of the hwo for now as confidence
is not high enough at the moment. For Tuesday, a lingering
boundary across central ms will keep a warm and moist airmass in
place. Daytime heating will allow for weak to moderate
destabilization but with weak lapse rates and no source for
forcing any storms that develop will be isolated to scattered at
best. No severe weather is expected with this activity, although a
strong storm or two cannot be ruled out. /tw/
Tuesday night through Monday:
the active weather pattern will continue through this work week
and the upcoming weekend as a parade of upper lows dig into the
desert southwest and move east across the country. The next period
to watch for the arklamiss region specifically will be late
Wednesday night through Thursday night. A deepening low pressure
system over the southern high plains on Wednesday will lift toward
missouri by Thursday night. While the finer details of this system
may change, the current thinking is that an MCS will approach
northeast louisiana and southeast arkansas by late Wednesday
night but should be weakening as it enters our area and outruns
the best instability. Warm, moist advection will continue across our
region through the day Thursday with dew points climbing into the
mid 60s and around 1000-1500 j/kg of MLCAPE developing by the
afternoon. An additional round of convection is expected to
develop under these conditions before a cold front sweeps in with
drier and cooler air Thursday night. At this time, all modes of
severe weather look possible during the day Thursday with an
increasing heavy rain threat before the cold front moves through.

The next system looks to take shape by late in the weekend and
will possibly bring another round of severe thunderstorms through
the region some time Sunday into Monday. Be sure to tune in for
updates throughout the week as the details come into better focus
for these next few rounds of severe weather. /nf/

18z TAF discussion:
numerous showers and thunderstorms have developed across the
western half of the area late this morning and early this
afternoon. These showers and storms are expected to intensify in
a favorable severe weather environment with large hail possible in
the strongest storms. Storms will move from the west to east
through the remainder of the afternoon and into the early evening.

Vcts, tsra, and vcsh was updated accordingly at all TAF sites.

Some showers could linger longer at glh/gwo along a stalled
frontal boundary this evening. Otherwise, low ceilings and
possible fog development could result in ifr conditions after
9z/28 at most TAF sites, especially in the southeast. /tw/

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
