Near term [through tonight]
A vertically stacked area of low pressure will continue to move
northeastward through the mid-mississippi valley region this
afternoon and evening, with a trough axis extending southeastward
into our region during the evening hours. A slow-moving line of
showers and thunderstorms will move eastward along/ahead of this
feature this evening, likely moving into SE alabama and the florida
panhandle after 00z. Increasing deep-layer moisture (pwat values up
to 1.3-1.4") should maintain the line of showers for much of the
night. However, modest instability will be decreasing through the
night and forcing will decrease as the aforementioned low moves
northeastward and gradually weakens. Therefore, best chances of
showers and thunderstorms will be along/west of a line from dothan
to panama city, with chances decreasing farther to the east as the
line weakens overnight.

Persistent southeasterly flow and ample cloud cover will keep
temperatures mild overnight, with lows around 60 inland and in the
mid-60s along the gulf coast.

Short term [Sunday through Monday night]
The front across the southeast will weaken and lift northward on
Sunday as the low pressure system the front is associated with
lifts into the midwest and towards the great lakes, however a few
showers and thunderstorms will still be possible on Sunday. While
cape values of 600 j/kg support thunderstorms on Sunday, low
level and deep layer shear are on the lower side. With this and
the fact the upper level feature is well removed to the north of
the cwa, severe storms are not expected on Sunday. The surface low
will move into the great lakes Sunday night into Monday, with the
weakening cold front lifting north and east, providing a lull in
precip Sunday night into Monday morning. Another low pressure
system will track from the southern plains Sunday night into the
tennessee valley Monday night, however the main portion of the
precip associated with this surface low will remain north of the
cwa.

High temperatures will be in the mid 70s to lower 80s on Sunday
with the upper range increasing into the mid 80s Monday. Lows will
range from the upper 50s to the lower 60s.

Long term [Tuesday through Saturday]
While a few showers and thunderstorms will be possible across the
northern portion of the CWA near the beginning of the long term,
the best chance of precipitation will be with a front moving
through on Friday. This will bring a return of rain chances to the
chance range with precip diminishing for the weekend. High
temperatures will increase into the mid to upper 80s for Wednesday
and Thursday and return to the upper 70s to lower 80s late in the
week with the additional coverage and rain and behind the front on
Saturday. Lows will mainly be in the upper 50s to lower 60s.

Aviation [through 18z Sunday]
Vfr conditions are expected this afternoon through the early evening
hours, with scattered to broken mid-level clouds around 4000-6000
feet. Latest high resolution models still show a weakening squall
line approaching dhn and ecp this evening, with showers and isolated
thunderstorms likely along with MVFR conditions. Short periods of
ifr are possible in heavier rain. As the line continues to weaken,
it will move across aby and tlh, but scattered showers may not be
intense enough to produce significant visibility restrictions. After
any showers end, some patchy fog is possible across our area during
the early morning, but visibility is likely to remain atVFR through
the remainder of the period.

Marine
Winds and seas will diminish tonight and remain below cautionary
levels into early next week. A storm system will increase the
chance of showers and thunderstorms tonight with chances
diminishing on Sunday. Another front late in the week, will
increase winds and seas to at least cautionary levels.

Fire weather
Red flag conditions are not expected for the next several days with
relative humidity values remaining above critical levels.

Hydrology
Rain is expected tonight, but amounts will be on the lighter side
with a half inch to an inch west of a panama city to dothan line
and generally around a quarter inch or less along and east of this
line. These amounts are not expected to cause any significant
flooding on rivers.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
