Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Jackson MS
1050 am CDT Friday Sep 4 2015

Discussion...made some small tweaks to the short term. It was a
little cooler than expected for this time...but it still looks like
the area will reach the middle to upper 90s. Tweaked the hourly values
to show slower warming. Convection was going along the coast and
models suggest some westward propagating activity will move into the
area this afternoon. The guidance put the best probability of precipitation in the
southwest...but model output was not impressive. Tried to use a
blend...did extend isolated wording into the northern zones. Not
anticipating severe today...but an isolated storm or two could
produce some gusty winds. Update out shortly.

Aviation...a few patches of MVFR broken cloud ceilings are along
and south of the Highway 84 corridor at middle morning...but expect
nearly all VFR conditions across the region by midday with winds
quite light and variable. Isolated showers and a few thunderstorms
will form this afternoon although potential of impacts at any
particle taf site is not very high. /Bb/
