MESOSCALE UPDATE
 
 
ISSUED AT 942 PM CST WED DEC 7 2022  
 
REST OF TONIGHT:  
 
591-592DM SUBTROPICAL RIDGE IS CENTERED OVER THE NE GULF OF  
MEXICO, WITH MOIST SW RETURN FLOW ANALYZED ACROSS THE REGION.  
WITH SFC FRONTAL BOUNDARY SITUATED TO THE N, EXPECT ANY WEAK  
ASCENT/RAIN CHANCES TO REMAIN AROUND HWY 82 CORRIDOR & IF ANY  
REDEVELOPMENT OCCURS CLOSER TO DAYBREAK THEN LIFTS N. RIDGE WILL  
BE STRONG OVERNIGHT & WITH SLIGHTLY DRIER AIR, MOST AREAS WILL  
REMAIN RAIN FREE. ANOTHER NIGHT OF STRATUS & DENSE FOG ARE  
POSSIBLE. MAIN EARLIER ADJUSTMENTS WERE TO BRING THE "LIMITED"  
FOR PATCHY DENSE FOG NORTH TO ALONG THE HWY 20 CORRIDOR &  
EXTENDING INTO NE LA, WHILE THE "ELEVATED" AREA INTO A TIER OF  
COUNTIES ALONG THE HWY 84 & 98 CORRIDORS. DENSE FOG ADVISORY WAS  
ISSUED EARLIER FOR THE PINE BELT IN THE HWY 98 CORRIDOR & REMAINS  
VALID. ONLY CAVEAT IS ANY THAT CAN DEVELOP & IS DEVELOPING IN S LA  
COULD ADVECT INTO NE LA FOR A FEW HOURS NEAR OR JUST AFTER  
DAYBREAK. FOG IS DEVELOPING FASTER & ADVECTING QUICKER TO THE N  
ALONG THE MS GULF COAST AS WELL. TRENDS WILL HAVE TO BE MONITORED  
& SHORT-FUSE UPDATES TO THE ADVISORY AREA & HWO COULD BE NEEDED  
IF CONFIDENCE & AREAL COVERAGE INCREASES. OTHERWISE, MOST AREAS  
LOOK ON TRACK. BUMPED UP LOWS AGAIN, WITH A PERSISTENCE FCST UNDER  
A STAGNANT, WARM PATTERN. UPDATES ARE OUT. /DC/  
 

 
   
DISCUSSION
 
 
ISSUED AT 502 PM CST WED DEC 7 2022  
 
THROUGH TOMORROW: DENSE FOG POTENTIAL HAS INCREASED ACROSS THE  
SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF THE AREA. A DENSE FOG ADVISORY WAS ISSUED  
EARLIER FOR THE HWY 84 CORRIDOR FROM 11PM TONIGHT THROUGH MID-  
MORNING THURSDAY. MORE INFORMATION WILL BE FORTHCOMING IN THE  
EVENING UPDATE. /JAN/  
 
NO MAJOR HAZARDOUS WEATHER IMPACTS OR SIGNIFICANT FORECAST  
CONCERNS EXPECTED THROUGH THE WEEKEND, THOUGH THERE IS A SIGNAL  
FOR A POSSIBLE SEVERE WEATHER/HEAVY RAIN EVENT EARLY NEXT WEEK.  
 
UPPER PATTERN THRU SATURDAY DOMINATED BY LARGE NEARLY E-W ORIENTED  
UPPER RIDGE CENTERED OVER THE GULF OF MEXICO WITH AN ANOMALOUSLY  
LARGE, SUMMER-LIKE 591 DM HEIGHT VALUE. THIS HELPS EXPLAIN ABOVE  
NORMAL SFC TEMPS.  
 
LARGE SCALE PATTERN EXPECTED TO PROGRESS AND SHIFT AS DEEP UPPER  
LOW DEVELOPS OVER THE NORTHWEST AND NORTHCENTRAL CONUS AND BUILDS  
SOUTH INTO THE ROCKIES THIS WEEKEND. EVENTUALLY, WAVE TO THE WEST  
OF THE LARGE UPPER LOW EXPECTED TO KICK THE LARGER WAVE EAST  
MONDAY/TUESDAY BRING VERY STRONG SSWLY FLOW ALOFT AND S-SELY LOW  
LEVEL FLOW INTO THE MID-SOUTH, A FAVORABLE PATTERN FOR SEVERE  
WEATHER AND VERY HEAVY RAIN. EXACT DETAILS ON TIMING AND  
ORIENTATION WILL CHANGE AS FORECASTS EVOLVE BUT WILL BE SOMETHING  
TO WATCH VERY CLOSELY.

AVIATION
 
 
(06Z TAFS)  
ISSUED AT 1242 AM CST THU DEC 8 2022  
 
CIGS WILL BEGIN TO LOWER ACROSS MOST OF THE AREA TONIGHT LEADING TO  
MVFR-IFR CONDITIONS ACROSS MOST OF THE TAF SITES. SOUTHERN SITES  
(HBG/PIB) WILL SEE IFR/LIFR CONDITIONS DUE TO LOW VISIBILITY/DENSE  
FOG & CIGS/LOW STRATUS. THIS IS EXPECTED TO LAST THROUGH BETWEEN 11Z-  
15Z THURSDAY. THERE IS A SMALL POSSIBILITY THAT SOME OF THIS COULD  
ADVECT NORTH TOWARDS OTHER TAF SITES (JAN, HKS, AND MEI) AROUND THIS  
TIMEFRAME. VISIBILITY SHOULD BEGIN TO IMPROVE AROUND 15Z THURSDAY  
WITH VFR FLIGHT CATEGORIES BY 18Z THURSDAY. AMENDMENTS MAYBE  
NECESSARY IF CONDITIONS WORSEN. /CRJ/
