Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED National Weather Service Jackson MS 1226 AM CDT Sat Jun 22 2024


Issued at 931 PM CDT Fri Jun 21 2024

Rest of tonight...

Ridging at the sfc & aloft continue to build in, with RAP/evening 00Z upper air analysis indicate 595DM H5 ridge centered over the the Mid-South. Dry environment continues to filter in from the east, with around an inch or so PWs moving in. Another dry night, mostly clear skies & seasonable lows in the upper 60s southeast of the Natchez Trace to low 70s to the northwest. Updates are out./DC/

Issued at 300 PM CDT Fri Jun 21 2024

Tonight and Saturday: Deep layer ridging will continue over our region during the near term. This will bring rain-free weather, but increasingly hot and humid conditions, as we go into the weekend. Heat indices rising to near 100 will be common by Saturday afternoon with hotter conditions expected as we go through the following days. /EC/

Saturday Night through Friday: Saturday Night through Friday...

No changes have been made to the forecast for the extended period.
The combination of high pressure ridging and a persistent dry airmass will keep our weather relatively dry through the end of this weekend. Within this regime, afternoon temperatures will gradually increase into the upper 90s to near 100 by Sunday. Around this timeframe, low-level flow will begin to shift to the south and moisture will begin to return to the area, with dewpoints climbing into the low 70s. This will begin to yield heat indices in the 105 to 110 deg range in many areas. At the moment, no changes have been made to the heat graphic for Sunday. Heading into the next work week, mid/upper ridging will begin to break down and shrink westward, resulting in a more perturbed northwest upper flow pattern.

Rain chances will start to increase starting on Monday as deep layer moisture continues to increase across the area. Hot conditions will persist given the increased moisture allowing for heat indices to reach critical thresholds. No changes have been made to the elevated heat graphic for Monday/Tuesday. Heat trends will continued to be monitored, and it is possible that a heat advisory may eventually be needed for this timeframe. Heading into Wednesday-Thursday, the precip coverage will have a big impact on the afternoon highs.
Model consensus has come into slightly better alignment heading into Wednesday with guidance beginning to show a more somewhat defined shortwave along with a potential cold front. This should help increase greater rain and storm chances across central MS.
Forecast confidence is still low at this point regarding the timing of this cold front. Trends will continued to be monitored as we get closer to this event. Heading into Friday, rain chances will continue to decrease across the area with scattered rain showers possible along southeastern portions of the area.

Concerning the tropics, it appears current tropical cyclone threats over the southwest Gulf of Mexico and the near the southeast Atlantic Coast will not be a concern for our immediate area. /CR/
