Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Jackson MS
432 PM CST Thursday Nov 27 2014

Discussion...sky conditions may be the biggest concern in the short
term. The weather will be quiet through the weekend. While the
trough axis still seems to be in place over the middle south...dry air
from the west was finally eroding the cloud deck. Expecting the area
to be clear for much of the night. However...there is some upper
level moisture over the plains and models continue to show moisture
nosing into the County Warning Area overnight. Right now...not anticipating another
overcast period for the northern tier of counties tonight...but may
see some high stuff. Used a blend for the lows. The mav took the
northeast into the middle 20s...looking for winds to come around before
daybreak and remain light through morning. Warm and moist air will
return on Saturday ahead of the next boundary. The area may see some
highs in the 70s both Saturday and Sunday. The front looks like it
will move in Sunday night with rain/clouds lingering through
Tuesday. Not sold on the low temperatures during that period with clouds
and warm air hanging around...not sure we will really see values
near 40. The next system develops Thursday night into Friday. Looks
like another weak front with some rain. The best dynamics will be
well to the north of the County Warning Area...kept The Hazards clear.

&&

Aviation...the flow has relaxed with a strong area of high pressure
building in from the northwest. Clear skies/calm winds will continue tonight
into Friday am...with southwesterly winds developing Friday as high pulls east of
area. /08/
