Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Jackson MS
915 PM CDT sun Aug 30 2015

Discussion...showers have ended across the area so will update the
zones to remove the rain. Winds were up in a few locations so
temperatures were not falling as quickly. Tweaked the hourly values
to account for the warmer temperatures. The RUC suggest the northeast
will be a little cooler...but not confident drier air will mix down
overnight. Will maintain current lows...especially with a light
breeze. Clouds should thin...so expecting another pleasant night.
Models were suggesting there may be some patchy fog around...with
rain in Meridian could see some in the morning. Looking for it to be
patchy at best...so will leave it out of the forecast.

Aviation...mainly VFR conditions are anticipated through the next
24 hours although some patches of MVFR (to perhaps even briefly ifr)
conditions are possible between 10 and 13 UTC Monday morning around
gwo/gtr/cbm/nmm/mei/pib/hbg. Winds tomorrow will be light and tend
toward being a little variable. /Bb/
