Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Jackson MS 629 AM CDT Tue Sep 22 2020

UPDATE. Updated for 12Z aviation discussion

AVIATION. 12Z TAF discussion: A mainly VFR ceiling exists across much of the region this morning, with patchy MVFR areas mainly to our south and west. Light SHRA are moving across portions of North MS. SHRA will remain mainly light through the day today with the best chances along and west of the MS River. This evening into tonight, MVFR to IFR ceilings are expected to build northeastward across much of the area. Rain chances will also increase overnight, with rain possibly becoming more moderate to heavy around GLH by sunrise Wed morning. /DL/

DISCUSSION. Through tonight: Tropical Storm Beta made landfall along the Texas coast last night. The system will move little today as it weakens, then begin to move ENEward tonight. Nevertheless, we continue to see some of the associated rains well away from the center as it interacts with a shortwave trough and as deeper moisture overspreads the somewhat cooler and drier near surface airmass over our area. During the daytime today, easterly low level flow (albeit not quite as strong as yesterday) will continue to reinforce the existing drier airmass, with showers struggling to produce measurable rain farther north and east in the area. Farther south and west, deeper moisture exists with PW near 2", which will better support shower activity. Still, most rain during the day today should remain light and scattered, except perhaps across Northeast LA where some guidance is hinting at heavier downpours by this afternoon.

Tonight, however, the southerly stream of moisture will begin to win out as the lower level drier airmass is gradually modified with dewpoints rising through the 60s farther north and east. Showers will become more numerous overnight and heading into early Wednesday morning. There could even be some locally heavier rainfall developing around the Delta, which fits in well with what is currently advertised in the current limited flood outlook in the current HWO/graphics. Temperatures will continue to be modulated by clouds/precip, and another nod was given toward raw guidance today especially in the west. /DL/

Wednesday through Monday . The evolution of Tropical Storm Beta will be the major impact on the weather through the rest of the workweek. The storm is currently on the coast of Texas, wobbling and not moving much at all in the overnight, pulling drier air in and losing strength. Without significant steering flow, the storm is not moving quickly. This is also impacting the tracks moving forward, and there is a lot of uncertainty in the models. Generally speaking, the system is pulling plenty of deep moisture up into the Gulf States, increasing PWs and potential for moderate rainfall across the region. By Wednesday, the PWs are around 2" as that deep moisture starts to interact with a boundary in the midlevels and a 50kt jet into the region. Though the region has been relatively dry, that is expected to change through today and tonight . and models keep the trend of potential banding of precip. The significant features are not consistently placed from run to run . the better instability is along the coast, and the main driver of the dynamics is lacking steering flow. However, there is plenty of moisture moving into the region. WPC ERO for Day 2 has a broad area of concern across the forecast area. Will be keeping the limited mention in the HWO for Wed into Thursday. Concern will be more for localized flood concerns in areas that see higher efficiency setups/banding. The synoptic lift/showers across the region continues through the end of the week as TS Beta loses its structure and is slowly absorbed into the mid level trough going into the weekend. Overall a cooler than normal forecast due to the clouds/showers/thunder . and a wet one as the influence of a tropical system pulls plenty of moisture into the region as it slows and weakens. Models continue to trend towards a front moving into the region for a pattern shift at the end of the weekend.

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.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
