Synopsis..Winds shift to southerly Wednesday as high pressure builds over the eastern gulf. A moderate to strong onshore flow develops late Wednesday night into Thursday night ahead of the next approaching cold front. Winds become northwesterly behind the front late this week into this weekend. Small craft advisory conditions are likely for the end of the week into the first part of the weekend due to strong winds and rough seas.

00z issuance...VFR conditions are expected to prevail through the
forecast period. Calm to light and varible winds will occur
overnight into Wednesday morning, followed by south to southeast
winds increasing throughout the day. 22

Prev discussion issued 328 pm cst Tue dec 11 2018
near term now through Wednesday ... Upper level ridge continues
to build overhead as the corresponding surface high shifts east
over south alabama tonight. Clear skies will allow temperatures to
rapidly fall with lows in the 30s throughout the forecast area.

By morning the upper-level flow will gradually become more zonal
allowing for cirrus and additional cloud cover to move in from the
west throughout the daytime Wednesday. Though with pwats below
0.30" rain chances are effectively zero. The surface high is
expected to shift east allowing for a weak southerly wind flow and
moisture return by the afternoon. Dj 17
short term Wednesday night through Friday night ... An upper trof
advances across the central states and forms a deep upper low over
texas on Thursday. An associated surface low occludes while
advancing eastward along the red river valley meanwhile, with a
split jet structure aloft and low level warm air advection
resulting in a line of strong deep layer forcing advancing across
the lower mississippi river valley. The region of strong deep
layer lift shifts eastward across the forecast area Thursday night
followed by the occluded system continuing slowly eastward
further into the southeast states. The region of strong deep layer
lift will manifest as a line of convection, but while very high
shear is indicated, instability remains limited. The 850 mb jet
increases to 45-50 knots which results in 0-1 km helicity values
of 200-400 m2 s2 Thursday night. MLCAPE values are pretty abysmal
inland although over the coastal counties values of 300-500 j kg
are expected. Model soundings show that lapse rates have improved
over the coastal counties within the lowest 3 km, in fact even up
to 700 mb or so. There is the possibility that cool water
temperatures over the bays (in the 50s) and near shore water
temperatures in the lower mid 60s could create unfavorable lapse
rates in a very shallow near surface layer. That said, surface
based convection looks possible if not probable by the time the
line of convection moves through. Expect that this improvement in
the lapse rates is due to the effects of the strong deep layer
lift, which tends to improve lapse rates better at lower levels
compared to further aloft. This is not the case generally north of
the coastal counties however, where unfavorable lapse rates
persist at least in the lowest 1.5 km despite the strength of the
deep layer lift. Will have pops increasing to categorical on
Thursday over the western portion of the area, tapering to chance
pops further to the east, then categorical pops continue for the
entire area Thursday night. Pops taper off on Friday to mostly
slight chance as wrap around precipitation continues in the wake
of a cold front expected to follow shortly behind the line of
convection Thursday night, then dry conditions develop Friday
night. 29
long term Saturday through Tuesday ... Dry conditions continue
through the period as the large, deep system continues eastward
away from the area and into the western atlantic. Temperatures
will be near or slight below seasonable values through the period,
roughly near 40 at night and around 60 each day. 29
marine... Surface ridge shifts east overnight tonight allowing
an onshore flow to develop by Wednesday afternoon. This onshore
flow strengthens Wednesday ahead of the next front. A strong
onshore flow develops Thursday afternoon with showers and isolated
thunderstorms increasing in coverage over the marine zones into
the late afternoon and evening hours. Wave heights increase to
between 7-9 feet in the overnight hours Thursday night into Friday
with hazardous conditions for small craft expected. After the
front passes light showers may persist and waves offshore linger
above 9 feet (with some as high as 12 feet) into Saturday before
tapering off Saturday evening. Dj 17
