Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Jackson MS 955 PM CDT Mon Sep 21 2020

UPDATE.

Updated for evening discussion.

DISCUSSION.

Current low temperatures forecast looks to be on track, given persistent cloud cover and steady east winds overnight. The lower and mid levels are more saturated across northeast Louisiana and southeast Arkansas into western Mississippi, and it's in these areas that overnight light to moderate rain will be more probable. Rain rates with the current band lifting northward away from TS Beta's circulation have been fairly light through the day today - at least in our area. It looks like at least some break in measurable rainfall will occur through early Tuesday morning, and then chances begin to increase again as we head into the later morning hours as another band propagates away from Beta. /NF/

Prior discussion below:

Tonight & tomorrow .

Tonight: As surface high remains parked over New England & southeast CONUS/eastern Gulf of Mexico, Beta is expected to make landfall or straddle the coastline by daybreak tomorrow. With continued tropical moisture feed/overrunning on the northern periphery of the baroclinic zone/warm front, expect scattered rain chances to persist into the evening hours. Some localized, but long-duration, rain totals are possible, generally near the Bastrop/Columbia line. However, decreasing moisture feed should help any isentropic rain showers to decrease in coverage & migrate west of the Mississippi River before midnight. However, this may only be temporary as some increasing low-level convergence helps spark some more early morning rain showers across central & western areas. With broad southwesterly flow aloft, widespread clouds/showers will keep above normal lows in the low-mid 60s areawide.

Tuesday: The synoptic & surface pattern will be mostly unchanged, with the Hurricane Teddy becoming absorbed into the upper flow off the coast of New England. Mid-level ridge axis will slowly build further south into the Gulf of Mexico, which will coincide with Beta making landfall along the Texas Coastline. A closed low will also be prevalent near the Ozarks. Persistence will be the key as the warm front & baroclinic zone will only lift slight to the northeast near the Texas/Louisiana border. With broad moist low-mid level south-southeasterly, continued soupy 2+ inch PWs tropical airmass will keep an early start to rain showers across areas from the northwest into the Jackson Metro & Interstate 59 corridor. More broad ascent & any MCVs, which is possible in this environment, could help some localized banding. However, heavier rain totals look to be in areas that didn't receive as much today, generally west of the Mississippi River. Therefore, kept the HWO clear of any mention for Tuesday. However, this is highly mesoscale driven & details are tough to iron out in these marginal type situations. This will also help prime the environment for flash flooding potential as Beta moves in mid-week. Below normal high temperatures are expected generally in the low-mid 70s & leaned towards cooler consensus of RAW guidance. /DC/

Tuesday night through the week .

The main concern for the week will be the track of Tropical Storm Beta and how it impacts the ArkLaMiss region. Beta will continue to meander along or near the Texas coast through much of the week. Moisture from Beta will continue to spread into portions of our region, especially in the southern parts of the forecast area. This will result in sporadic bands of showers across the region. Beta looks to begin to track east into Louisiana and Mississippi by later into the week as a tropical depression. This will help increase rainfall across our region. Generally, up to three inches may be possible during this time period. A limited risk was inherited for the area for this risk of localized flooding, which also mirrors the outlooks from WPC and will be kept in tact for this forecast cycle.

Heading into the weekend, rainfall will continue to affect portions of the forecast area. This comes as an upper trough will linger across the region through the weekend. This trough will push east across the region by late Sunday into Monday as another cold front pushes into the region for early next week. /28/

AVIATION. 00Z TAF discussion: VFR ceilings will prevail over the area through the period. Isolated light showers will also continue, but very little impacts are expected./GG/
