AVIATION (06z TAF package).

Primarily a VFR forecast package. Seeing a few ceilings around FL060 at KMCB and KBTR associated with remnants of earlier TSRA in those areas. Cannot rule out some MVFR conditions at KMCB around sunrise, but these should improve by 15z. Airmass is somewhat drier than the last few days, as the LIX 00z sounding had a precipitable water value near 1.8 inches vs the 2+ we've been seeing.

Most guidance now pointing at little or no convection for much of Tuesday afternoon. If there's going to be a favored terminal, it's probably KBTR and/or KMCB and may not develop much before 20z or so, dissipating shortly after sunset. For now, will only carry VCTS at KBTR, and mid shift can re-assess for 12z package. 35

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 416 PM CDT Mon Jul 26 2021/

SHORT TERM . Well what can we say welcome to Summer. As expected scattered storms have mainly developed west of a line from Houma to Columbia. These storms and some outflow boundaries helped cool a few sites off but this was temporary for most locations as much of the area saw heat index values jump back up to around 105- 108.

The next few days will be almost a carbon copy of today. Very humid air, warm temperatures, and light winds will continue to lead to oppressive conditions with morning lows in the mid 70s to near 80 and then afternoon heat index values over much of the area ranging from 105-110. The combination of warm morning lows and hot conditions in the afternoon will not allow the body to cool outside. Combine that with the prolonged duration of these conditions and heat illness concerns will increase over the next few days. The main hope for cooling will be any afternoon thunderstorm development but that does appear to be a little more difficult the next few days as the ridge to our northwest noses down the southeast and a weak mid level low pushes west out of the western Gulf into southern TX and Mexico. In addition that area of deeper moisture analyzed by GOES16 will slide east and much drier air (relatively) with PWs around 1.5-1.7 will slide over the area the next few days. This will lead to a little less coverage of storms and that can be seen already with very little convection over coastal MS and much of the Southshore today. Now yes I did say drier air is moving in but that does not mean "DRY" air. Low level moisture will still be high with dewpoints still in the 70s so do not anticipate a relief in the oppressive conditions and with that we will extend the heat advisory into tomorrow. One adjustment was to include Hancock county in this as the environment around the Pearl River is quite oppressive with the added moisture but we did leave Harrison and Jackson counties out for now as the seabreeze has provided a little relief for the coast but thinking this likely is a bad decision as 5-10 miles north of the coast they will probably not see the seabreeze and heat index values will be borderline. Heat advisory will probably be needed for Wednesday as well but holding off right now to make sure the ridge doesn't get suppressed to the west some allowing us to be on the southeast periphery along with moisture rebounding and storms returning. /CAB/

LONG TERM . The extended portion of the forecast suggest Summer will be here to stay and we could really feel the heat finally as we move into August. Models are in agreement for the most part and will stick with the NBM overall. Only adjustments in the extended portion of the forecast from the NBM was morning lows in a few locations where the deterministic value is well below the mean values Fri-Sun.

Thu and Fri will see the ridge to our northwest continue to try to build southeast however we will likely see a weak disturbance ride around the ridge and come across the northern Gulf. Moisture will increase with PW back near 2". H925 temps would suggest mid 90s widespread for afternoon highs but with the possibility of storms it may help keep a few sites from reaching those values. So additional heat advisories could be needed for some areas those days.

Heading into the weekend could be the hottest period we have seen yet. By Saturday the ridge looks like it will fully build into the area. Yes unlike the other ridges that have tried to build in those came from the east and out of the Atlantic. Those were warm and quite moisture loaded but this ridge will be coming from the northwest and will be hot. Luckily it doesn't appear that the bulk of the heat will make it here with h925 temps still around 24-26C. That would still promote highs in the mid 90s but if we see only scattered showers and thunderstorms this week and some places actually make it through the week dry then we could see highs in the upper 90s in a few locations as we add those 1-2 degrees of superadiabatic skin layer temps. Looks like heat index values will probably easily get in the 100s and a few could be around 110 degrees. /CAB/

MARINE . Benign conditions on the water expected with light winds and low seas anticipated. Winds near the coast will be highly dictated by daily temp fluctuations and as typical in these Summer patterns winds south of the MS coast and east of the MS River delta will likely see a nocturnal jet with winds around 5-7 kts stronger than the rest of the marine zones. /CAB/
