Prev discussion issued 451 am cdt Sun may 26 2019
near term now through Sunday night ... Upper level high pressure
remains in place over the eastern CONUS and gulf of mexico through
the near term. Guidance is consistent in the strength of the ridge
being maintained from yesterday, but with a slug of higher
moisture levels moving inland over the area from the gulf today,
heat indices will see an increase from yesterday, with maximum
values of 100 to 106 expected. Temperatures will also see a slight
increase from yesterday, with highs ranging from the upper 90s
west to near 100 over eastern portions of the forecast area. Highs
around 90 are expected close to the coast. With the well above
seasonal temperatures, records for the date are threatened. Record
highs for today for the area are:
mobile 96 set in 1962 and 1953
pensacola 98 set in 2012 and 1953
tonight will continue the well above seasonal trend with lows
ranging from the upper 60s inland to mid 70s close to the coast.

The increase in moisture levels will also bring a greater chance
of fog development after midnight tonight, so added fog into the
forecast beginning after midnight and lasting to the first hours
after sunrise.

Have kept the high risk of rip currents on area beaches for today.

Guidance for buoy 42040 is advertising a 2-3 foot 6 sec period
swell lasting through today before easing tonight into Monday.

This is lower than the current 3ft 6 sec observations for the last
day or two. Bumping the forecast up to match the observation, the
high risk today will become a moderate risk tonight into Monday.

short term Monday through Tuesday night ... The upper level ridge
centered over the deep south, the northern gulf of mexico, and the
north florida peninsula will shift slightly southeastward through
the short term. This shift is in response to an upper closed low
pressure area over the desert southwest, embedded in a large
western CONUS trough, lifting northeast to the northern plains,
while the trough moves only slightly eastward. This will have
little to no effect on the movement of the surface ridge of high
pressure stretching from the western atlantic across the southeast
states and eastern gulf, thus maintaining the light southerly wind
flow and influx of boundary layer moisture from the gulf across
the forecast area. However, we will still be influenced by a dry
westerly to southwesterly mid to upper level wind flow, and when
combined with subsidence from the upper ridge, the dry conditions
will persist through Tuesday night. The strong high pressure
systems will also keep temperatures well above seasonal norms for
the short term, with high temperatures Monday in the mid to upper
90 over inland areas, with mid 90s on Tuesday. High temperatures
along the coastal sections will be in the upper 80s to lower 90s.

Afternoon heat indices will generally range from the mid 90s to
lower 100s across the entire forecast area both days. Low temps
Monday night will drop into the mid to upper 60s inland areas, and
range from 70 to 75 degrees along the coastal sections. Low temps
Tuesday night will be slightly warmer. With the boundary layer
moisture remaining, there is a continued chance of fog forming
after midnight each night. 22
long term Wednesday through Saturday ... A series of upper level
shortwaves and disturbances moving through the upper trough over
the western CONUS will eject eastward, passing north of the
forecast area. This will seemingly flatten the upper ridge over
the region and push it southward, with mid and upper level
moisture advecting in from the west. A weak cold front associated
with a surface low over the midwest states will approach the
region from the northwest on Thursday, possibly entering in the
forecast area Thursday night and stalling on Friday. The dry
conditions will persist through Wednesday night, followed by a
chance of showers and thunderstorms returning to the forecast area
Thursday and Friday. Isolated showers and thunderstorms remain
possible Friday night and Saturday along the stalled boundary.

Temperatures will remain above seasonal levels, just not as high
as the levels we are currently experiencing. 22
marine... A surface ridge will continue to stretch west over the
northern gulf of mexico though the week. Light to occasionally
moderate winds are expected. A slight increase in the average
speed along with continued onshore flow will bring a slow build in
seas through the week. 16
