Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Little Rock AR 523 PM CST Sun Mar 7 2021
AVIATION. Updated for 00Z TAFs .
VFR conditions are expected, with no significant weather or obstructions to visby. Winds will remain southerly, with sustained speeds generally less than 10 knots.
PREV DISCUSSION. (ISSUED 258 PM CST Sun Mar 7 2021) SHORT TERM . Tonight Through Wednesday Latest satellite and local surface observations indicate thin broken high clouds across much of the forecast area. A southerly surface flow has developed across the forecast area. Temperatures are running near to slightly above normal for early March.
Little change in forecasts were made concerning sensible weather elements for this period. Fairly large scale, surface high pressure, centered across the eastern third of the U.S. will promote dry conditions during this period. As the high pressure moves slowly eastward, southwesterly upper level flow will develop over the mid south, providing an environment for conditions in the next period.
Above normal temperatures will prevail during this period.
LONG TERM . Sunday Through Sunday SW flow aloft wl be well established acrs the region in response to upr ridging ovr the Sern U.S. and large scale trofing in the W. An assocd upr low wl be taking shape in Srn CA, eventually working into the 4-Corners area late in the week. Beyond that, the models go their separate ways with regard to the upper lvl flow pattern heading into next weekend, resulting in low fcst confidence by that time.
In the meantime, persistent Sly low lvl flow early in the PD wl cont to bring warmer and more humid air into AR. A slow movg CDFNT is fcst to apch N AR by Fri, but wl encounter the aforementioned SWly steering flow aloft. The presence of the fntl bndry wl bring better chcs of rain, mainly to the NW half of the FA.
Heading into the weekend, the one certainty is that the wx pattern wl cont to be unsettled. The GFS is much more progressive with the storm system in the SW, brining into thru the Plains States and acrs the region. Meanwhile, the ECMWF shows the parent upr low only in the TX panhandle late Sun. Thus, plan to rmn consistent with the going fcst and keep PoPs mainly in the higher end chc cat for now.
