UPDATE. Updated for 12Z aviation discussion
AVIATION. 12Z TAF discussion:
Areas of fog have developed early this morning while low stratus is mostly confined to the Pine Belt region. After fog/stratus dissipate later this morning, VFR conditions and light northerly winds are expected to prevail for the remainder of the forecast period, but an exception may be patchy areas of fog that develop during the early morning hours Thursday. /EC/
Today through tonight: Weak cold advection over the ArkLaMiss region is resulting in a considerable amount of stratus early this morning, with thicker fog being observed in the upper Delta region. Expect the stratus/fog to diminish as we heat up later this morning, and skies should be sunny by this afternoon. Temperatures will be cool by early March standards, but plenty of sun and light wind should make for a comfortable day overall. For tonight, clear skies and light wind will allow for rapid cooling and temperatures should drop well into the 30s at most places for lows, with even some readings near freezing possible at the normally colder spots of north central MS. Patchy areas of fog are likely to develop overnight, but full sun this afternoon should help to dry out the boundary layer, thus helping to limit the potential for more significant fog. /EC/
Thursday through Tuesday:
With high pressure at the surface and ridging building aloft, conditions for Thursday will be near to slightly above normal with highs in the 60s to low 70s under sunny skies. The only concern in the long term forecast will be the wave set to move through the region Friday into Saturday. Originating as a closed low and moving around the upper ridge, the low will degenerate as it moves into the South on Friday. So as it weakens and moves over our region, we will be left with some light rain showers late Friday afternoon into the overnight period. The system will move through quickly and by Saturday morning the area will be clear of precip. Northerly flow behind the wave will keep conditions cool and in the upper 50s to low 60s for Saturday. Sunday will warm a bit but by Monday and Tuesday southerly flow returns and highs will be back to above normal and in the low 70s. The next rain chances look to come Wednesday into Thursday next week as a cold front tracks through the region. More to come on that later. /10/
