What's New / NOTES
10/6/2018 Colors of tide XTide graphs changed to emphasize that they were upgraded. See next note. Comments welcome.
10/4/2018 I have fixed XTide and updated the harmonic files. There were some name changes so you might have to click EDIT to find the new station name.

national weather service mobile al
527 am cdt Sun may 19 2019

Discussion See updated information for land areas and aviation
discussion below.

Update Have updated to issue a dense fog advisory for portions
of south central alabama and the interior western florida
panhandle until 9 am cdt. Made other minor adjustments. 29

Aviation
12z issuance... Ifr to vlifr conditions in fog are expected over
much of south central alabama and interior portions of the western
florida panhandle early this morning. Similar conditions may
redevelop over interior areas again late tonight. Scattered to
numerous showers and storms currently approaching from the west
will mainly move into southeast mississippi and southwest alabama
today. Isolated to potentially scattered showers and storms are
expected tonight. MVFR conditions are expected with the showers
and storms. At the beginning of the period expect calm winds
inland ranging to southeast winds 5-10 knots closer to the coast,
then southerly winds around 10 knots develop for the entire area
by mid morning. The southerly flow becomes light tonight. 29

Prev discussion issued 407 am cdt Sun may 19 2019
near term now through Sunday night ... An upper trof over the
eastern plains moves off across the great lakes region through
tonight. A narrow upper ridge currently extends from the coast of
the carolinas into the north central gulf and remains close to
this position today then shifts eastward somewhat tonight while an
upper low lingers near the bahamas. For today, modest deep layer
subsidence associated with this upper ridge will play a role in
suppressing convective coverage development over the eastern
portion of the area while somewhat more favorable conditions exist
further to the west. As the upper ridge shifts eastward somewhat
tonight, this results in a somewhat more favorable convective
environment for the area. A surface low located well to the north
(associated with the upper trof) meanwhile brings a weakening cold
front across the lower mississippi river valley this evening
which stalls across northern alabama mississippi late tonight. A
surface ridge oriented near the northern gulf coast maintains a
southerly flow over the forecast area while retreating eastward as
the weak frontal boundary approaches.

Mlcape values increase to around 1500 j kg over the western portion
of the area today while much lower values exist further to the east
due to both lower surface dewpoints and modest subsidence aloft due
to the upper ridge. A mesoscale convective system (mcs) currently
over western louisiana is expected to weaken overnight and bring
isolated to scattered showers storms into southeast mississippi
and extreme southwest alabama this morning. A mesoscale convective
vortex (mcv) may form overnight from the weakening mcs. This
potential MCV and or a series of shortwaves will result in
convective coverage increasing mainly over the western portion of
the area this afternoon. For tonight, expect isolated to
potentially scattered convection gradually progressing eastward
with the retreat of the upper ridge and the series of shortwaves.

Shear values will be very low over the area, with 0-6 bulk shear
values of 15 knots or less. While some mid level dry air is seen
in model soundings, wet bulb zero values will be fairly high, near
13 kft. Considering the environment, the potential for severe
storm development looks low although will need to monitor as the
potential for wet microbursts today is moderate. Based on a
persistent onshore swell near 2 ft 6 sec, a spring tidal cycle
and continuing onshore winds, have extended the high risk of rip
currents through Monday. Highs today range from the mid 80s over
the western portion of the area to upper 80s lower 90s over the
eastern portion. Lows tonight range from the mid upper 60s inland
to the lower 70s closer to the coast. 29
short term Monday through Tuesday night ... Scattered showers and
thunderstorms continue Monday but will be primarily driven by
daytime heating as large-scale forcing weakens but ~1500 j kg
mlcape develops across the area. Gradually, an upper ridge begins
to build over the area on Tuesday as another shortwave trough
ejects northeast over the plains states. Convection associated
with this wave is expected to remain well to our west as the
trough quickly rotates north and away from the area. Left rain out
of the forecast for Tuesday as a result, and instead began the
gradual warming trend as subsidence strengthens beneath the upper
ridge and skies clear. High temps reach the mid to upper 80s west
of i-65 and upper 80s to low 90s east of the interstate on Monday
owing to a gradient in boundary layer moisture content and cloud
cover. Upper 80s and low 90s are expected areawide on Tuesday. 49
long term Wednesday through Saturday ... The upper ridge over the
eastern CONUS amplifies as we head into the middle and latter
portion of the week, further strengthening subsidence in the mid-
levels and keeping the local area dry and sunny. At the surface, a
ridge axis sets up along the eastern seaboard and extends
southwest into the deep south and northern gulf. This leaves us in
a weak flow regime, allowing a diurnal sea breeze land breeze
cycle to set up each day. Meanwhile, temperatures continue to warm
and most areas (including coastal locations) reach the 90s by
Thursday, where they remain through the weekend. Some inland
locations could approach 100 degrees by Friday Saturday. 49
marine... Moderate to occasionally strong southerly winds this
morning diminish through tonight. Small craft exercise caution
conditions will be possible for much of the area this morning. A
light to occasionally moderate southerly flow follows for Monday
through Thursday. 29

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.
