Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Jackson MS 133 AM CDT Fri Apr 10 2020

. AN OUTBREAK OF SEVERE WEATHER IS POSSIBLE ON SUNDAY IN OUR REGION .

UPDATE. Updated for 06Z aviation discussion

AVIATION. 06Z TAF discussion: VFR conditions are occurring and expected to continue through the TAF period. Light showers will continue to affect KPIB/KHBG overnight but should diminish through mid-morning. /28/

DISCUSSION.

The forecast is on track and only minor adjustments are necessary as a shield of light to moderate rain and embedded storms tracks across southern portions of the forecast area, mainly along south of the Highway 84 corridor. Will sharpen up the northern edge of the PoP coverage in the near term forecast as it is more certain where measurable rainfall will occur. Otherwise, we continue focus much attention on the potential severe weather outbreak this Sunday. /EC/

Prior discussion below:

Through tomorrow .

Heading into the overnight hours, a cold front will continue to sag further south with any surface based instability confined to the far southern fringes of the CWA. Convection emanating out of Texas and western Louisiana will remain focused along and south of the frontal boundary with mainly showers and stratiform rain to the north. This activity will spread into the ArkLaMiss overnight with rain chances focused mainly along and south of I-20. The northern extent of stratiform rain will be battling low-level dry air advection behind the cold front and will struggle to reach the ground. A few thunderstorms may be possible across the far southern tier of the CWA, but no severe weather is expected. Overnight rain will clear out tomorrow morning with skies becoming mostly sunny across much of the area. It will be a very pleasant day with a much drier and cooler airmass in place. High temperatures will climb into the low 60s north to low 70s south. /TW/

Friday night through Wednesday:

The primary focus remains on the potential for severe thunderstorms this weekend - namely Sunday morning through Sunday evening. An Enhanced Risk for severe thunderstorms has been included in the Hazardous Weather Outlook text and graphics. Primary hazards will be tornadoes and damaging wind gusts, as well as hail. Some tornadoes could be strong and long-tracked.

Expect dry weather Friday night into early Saturday as high pressure remains in control. By Saturday afternoon, the high will be moving off to the east, with a warm front moving into the region from the south. As the warm front lifts northward later Saturday into Saturday night, expect showers and thunderstorms to develop. It currently looks like any severe weather will remain out of our area through Saturday night.

A few strong to marginally severe thunderstorms may be possible in our southwest early Sunday morning, but the greatest chance for severe weather is expected Sunday after daybreak and continuing into the evening hours on Sunday. Model solutions are trending toward a common timing, although slight discrepancies over timing of the shortwave could alter the finer details for threats and timing of storms throughout the day. Strong deep-layer and low- level wind shear will increase through the morning hours as a low- level jet arrives with the warm front and intensifying southwesterly upper- level jet moves into the region. Supercells will be likely with strong speed and directional shear across the warm front able to organize updrafts. Low-level wind profiles suggest strong shear and helicity which could support tornadoes, some strong and long- tracked. Steep mid-level lapse rates and strong dynamics mean large hail and damaging wind gusts will also be possible with any severe storms. As the favorable atmosphere spreads northward through the day, expect the severe threat to spread north and east as well. There is some uncertainty as to how far north the best dynamics and instability will spread due to model differences, but even areas north of Interstate 20 have a Slight Risk for severe storms. Storm chances will clear from west to east through the evening as a modified Pacific cold front/dryline feature brings drier westerly flow in advance of the true cold front. Last and certainly not least, increased PWAT values will support locally heavy rainfall with storms, although widespread flash flooding does not currently look likely at this time. As the details come into better focus over the next day or two, expect some changes to threats and timing across the area.

The remainder of the forecast through the middle of next week should be quieter and cooler in the wake of the cold front. A longwave trough will prevail across the central and eastern CONUS, and northern parts of the area may even have a chance for temperatures to dip into the upper 30s later in the week. /NF/27/

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.
