Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED National Weather Service Jackson MS 1156 AM CDT Wed Jun 19 2024


Issued at 1142 AM CDT Wed Jun 19 2024

Forecast this morning is on track and only adjustments were to tweak clouds, due to the thicker high clouds, and hourly temps that are being affected by the clouds. As for PoPs, these were solid as well with respect to timing/location. I did update with the latest data which only changes things a small amount.
Generally speaking, Isolated type showers are possible during the afternoon hours along and south of the Hwy 98/84 corridor. This is within a moist low level advection zone and sufficient enough to support showers. Thunder potential is very low in that area and will not mention that. Any rainfall will be light and pretty brief. The rest of the area will see increasing sunshine as high clouds diminish along with some lower level cu. There will also be a nice easterly breeze today. /CME/

Today and Tonight...Strong high pressure at the surface and aloft, centered east of the region, will both continue to build west into the region. This will result in easterly flow across the CWA, which will continue to advect a slightly drier airmass into the forecast area. This will also cause any chance for showers this afternoon and evening to be confined to far southern portions of the CWA

High clouds will maintain their presence across much of the area today, but a few peaks of sun will again be seen across the area through the course of the day. Highs today will be a touch warmer as they range from the upper 80s to lower 90s. For tonight, some high clouds will linger across the area as lows range from the upper 60s to lower 70s. /19/

Through Late Week...Anomalously strong 595 dam mid-level ridge will have expanded from its origins over the mid-atlantic states into much of the mid MS valley. The stout ridge will provide a rather dry airmass aloft limiting the potential for storm coverage as chances for isolated showers and storms will remain confined to the afternoon as peak heating occurs and mainly focused along our far southern counties. This pattern will repeat daily through late week.

This Weekend into next Week...Ridging at the surface and aloft will help mitigate rain chances as the more moist tropical airmass will be in place further west southwest as the potential tropical disturbance continues its track west through Mexico. An influx of deep layer will result in dewpoints recovering into the high 60s to low 70s by Saturday. We can expect to see seasonably warm temps with mid 90s high temperatures expected through late week. It is also worth noting that heat indices will near 105 degrees and there will be a chance for triple digit temps this weekend into next early week thus heat products will be likely heading into the weekend. Looking ahead to next week week we can expect to see and active tropics as another area of low pressure is forecasted to form in the Southwestern portions of the Gulf Of Mexico following tropical cyclone one. At this time it is unlikely that our area sees any impacts as the system is forecasted to track west- northwestward or northwestward./KP/
