Synopsis..A surface ridge stretching west over the northern gulf of mexico will continue through late week, bringing a mainly light southeast to south wind to the marine area through Thursday night. Winds may increase slightly by the end of the period as the high pressure shifts east and a frontal boundary moves into the southeastern states and stalls well north of the marine area. Little change in seas expected, although a slight building of waves expected by late Wednesday into Thursday due to the persistence of the wind flow.

Update... Have updated to included isolated showers and storms
over a small portion of south central alabama this evening. A lone
thunderstorm has persisted over extreme northeast escambia county
alabama and is advancing slowly into southeast conecuh county.

This storm, and possibly a few others, will continue slowly
northward and eventually dissipate later this evening. No other
major changes. 29

Aviation...

00z issuance...VFR will continue through the forecast. A few areas
of light patchy fog could develop inland late tonight. Winds will
remain light and variable tonight. Bb 03
prev discussion... Issued 357 pm cdt Sun may 26 2019
continued hot conditions will continue with afternoon heat
indices in the 100 to 102 degree range Monday afternoon...

near term now through Monday ... A few very isolated showers
just recently trying to develop just to the east of our area, but
the majority of hi-res data indicates that these will likely be
short lived and remain to the east of our area. Although some short
term data now indicates a brief shower along or north of the
northward advancing sea breeze front is not completely out of the
question over the interior western fl panhandle or southwest, south
central al to the south and east of i-65.

Little change to forecast during the near term period. Surface high
pressure over our area weakens slightly and shifts a little to the
east by Monday, while high pressure aloft remains firmly entrenched
across the area. Hot and mostly dry conditions are expected to
continue through Monday (memorial day). Could again see some patchy
light fog over interior areas late tonight, with overnight
temperatures above normal, ranging from the upper 60s and lower 70s
inland to the low to mid 70s along the coast. This afternoon highest
heat indices have mainly been in the 100-102 degree range, primarily
over our interior eastern forecast area. Expect the heat to
continue, although with the ridging breaking down slightly on
memorial day, slightly lower MAX temperatures and heat indices are
expected. Highs on Monday will range from the low to mid 90s west
and coastal zones, to the mid and upper 90s interior east zones.

Afternoon heat indices again expected to be around 100 degrees in
some interior, southeast counties again tomorrow afternoon. We at
least tied the record high for today in mobile, at 96 degrees.

Monday's record highs are closer to 100 degrees across parts of the
area, so not as likely to approach record highs tomorrow as we have
the past couple of days. 12 ds
short term Monday night through Wednesday night ... Strong deep
layer ridging across the southeast will continue to maintain hot
and dry conditions through at least mid week. The strong
subsidence under the ridge will continue to suppress any shower
or thunderstorms development and lead to highs in the low to mid
90s away from the coast. Low temps will also continue to run above
normal.

Long term Thursday through Sunday ... Several weak upper
shortwaves moving through the upper trough over the western states
will eject eastward and pass north of the area. This will help
weaken and flatten the upper ridge over the region. As the ridge
weakens, a weak front will approach from the northwest late in
the week and stall north of the area. The combination of the
weaker upper ridging and approaching boundary along with
increasing deep layer moisture will lead to the return of
isolated showers and thunderstorms late in the week into the
weekend. Highs will also return to near normal levels over the
weekend. 13
marine... A surface ridge stretching west over the northern gulf of
mexico will continue through late week, bringing a mainly light
southeast to south wind to the marine area through Thursday night.

Winds may increase slightly by the end of the period (up to around
13 knots) as the high pressure shifts east and a frontal boundary
moves into the southeastern states and stalls well north of the
marine area. Little change in seas expected, although a slight
building of waves expected by late Wednesday into Thursday due to
the persistence of the wind flow (increasing from 2 feet or less
tonight through Tuesday night to 3, possibly 4 feet well offshore,
by late Thursday. 12 ds
