GMZ600 Synopsis For Pascagoula Ms To Okaloosa Walton County Line Fl Out 60 Nm Including Major Area Bays And Sounds- 358 Pm Cdt Sun Aug 19 2018
Synopsis..Surface high pressure over the southwest atlantic waters will extend westward into the eastern gulf of mexico with light to moderate southwesterly winds continuing through the early part of the week. A weak front will approach the gulf coast mid to late week, but likely remain just north of the marine area with winds becoming more westerly. Late in the week winds become light southeasterly as the front dissipates and high pressure redevelops to the east. Little change in seas expected. Scattered to occasionally numerous showers and Thunderstorms will continue.

Discussion Updated for latest aviation discussion below.

Aviation
00z issuance... Another repeat of the past 24 hours is expected
with current convection waning dissipating then redeveloping near
the shore late tonight and developing spreading inland during the
day on Monday. Ifr MVFR conditions accompany the convection while
vfr conditions are otherwise expected. Light southerly winds
tonight become south to southwest near 10 knots on Monday. 29

Prev discussion issued 400 pm cdt Sun aug 19 2018
near term now through Monday ... Southwest mid and upper level
flow will continue over the region tonight as Sunday as a trof and
associated area of mid to upper level low pressure continues over
the middle part of the country. Weak disturbances in the
southwesterly flow aloft will intermittently lift northeast across
the area, continuing to provide enough upper support to produce
scattered to occasionally numerous showers and thunderstorms across
the region through Monday. Most of the convective activity in the
near term period will be this evening and then again during the day
on Monday. Any lingering showers and storms overnight will likely be
more isolated and near the coast or over the adjacent nearshore gulf
waters. As has been the case over the past several days, storm
motion, likely to the east or northeast, will be very slow. This
slow movement, combined with the very moist airmass in place across
the region (pwat's expected to be in the 2.00 to 2.30 inch range
across the entire forecast area) will result in very efficient
rainfall producers. Rainfall rates of up to 2 to 3 inches per hour
will be possible. The ground is becoming increasingly saturated over
a large area over interior portions of the forecast area, and even
though our area is not outlooked for any excessive rainfall threat
on Monday, we could have a potential for some minor flooding of
urban areas as well as some other locations with low lying and poor
drainage areas. The deep moisture profiles should limit any severe
weather, but storms could still produce gusty winds of 30 to 35 mph.

Low temperatures tonight generally in the low to mid 70s. With
widespread cloud cover on Monday, highs tomorrow expected to be
mostly in the upper 80s. 12 ds
short term Monday night through Wednesday night ... The southern
end of a large upper trough will move across the area on Tuesday.

An associated sfc low will move across the great lakes region on
Tuesday with a trailing front moving toward the coast late Tuesday
night. The approaching boundary combined with plenty of deep
layer moisture will maintain high rain chances through Tuesday.

The GFS remains more aggressive in moving the front offshore
Wednesday with a much drier airmass moving into the area. The
ecmwf hangs the front up near the coast with not as much drying.

Considering the time of year, will lean toward the ECMWF solution
of maintaining isolated pops across southern portions of the area
on Wednesday. 13
long term Thursday through Sunday ... The boundary remains
stalled near the coast on Thursday and washes out on Friday. As a
result, isolated showers and thunderstorms will continue across
southern parts of the area. Deep layer moisture returns to the
area late in the week into weekend, returning scattered showers
and thunderstorms to the forecast for the entire area. 13
marine... A surface ridge of high pressure will extend from the
western atlantic to the central gulf of mexico through early next
week. This will maintain a light to occasionally moderate
southwesterly wind over the marine area through Tuesday. By
Wednesday, a weak trof-frontal boundary will drift south toward the
gulf coast and perhaps move just offshore over the coastal waters.

Winds will become more westerly, and perhaps even northwesterly at
times during the middle part of the week. By weeks end, the trof-
frontal boundary will weaken and winds become more southeasterly as
high pressure begins to develop and ridge into the northern gulf
from the east. Little change in seas expected through the period.

Winds and seas will be locally higher near scattered to occasionally
numerous showers and thunderstorms, especially during the early part
of the week. 12 ds
