Synopsis..A light to moderate southerly wind flow will continue through Saturday night in response to a strong surface ridge of high pressure located along the eastern seaboard combined with a slow moving cold front drifting eastward over the central plains. The cold front will eventually shift southeast and reach the northern gulf coast by late Sunday night, then move south and stall over the northern gulf waters on Monday. Patchy fog, possibly dense at times, will continue with the onshore flow through Saturday night.

Near term now through Thursday night Another record setting
day ahead as high temperatures climb into the low to mid 80s,
except for the upper 70s along the immediate coastal sections. The
forecast high temperature for mobile today is 82 degrees, and the
record high temperature is 80 degrees set in 2005, and equaled in
2006 and 2007. The forecast high temperature for evergreen today
is 85 degrees, and the record high temperature is 82 degrees set
in 1981. The forecast high temperature for destin today is 78
degrees, and the record high temperature is 77 degrees set in
2017. The forecast high temperature for pensacola today is 80
degrees, and the record high temperature is 81 degrees set in
2007.

Even some of our long standing record high temperatures from many of
of our coop sites should fall today, including waynesboro's record
of 82 set in 1922 (forecast high is 84), and bay minette's record of
79 set in 1927 (forecast high is 83).

The strong surface high pressure ridge and upper level ridge over
the southeast states and eastern gulf of mexico will persist over
the next 24 hours. A light southerly to southeasterly wind flow will
be maintained across the region along the western periphery of the
surface high pressure ridge. Low level moisture below 850 mb will
also remain, with mainly partly sunny skies forecast through much of
the day, followed by mainly partly cloudy skies tonight as slightly
drier air filters into the area.

The near term will be rain-free as the precip this time stays
northwest of the forecast area. Patchy fog early this morning will
dissipate by mid morning, and then reform after midnight tonight.

Short term Friday through Saturday night The upper ridge over
the southeastern u.S. Pushes south of the area Friday as a potent
shortwave ejects from the southwestern u.S. East over the great
plains. Beneath the ejecting shortwave, lee cyclogenesis over the
southern rockies rapidly forms a surface low over the south
plains, which then kicks northeast into the great lakes region by
the end of the day Saturday. An attendant cold front pushes east
across the plains, reaching the mississippi river valley late
Saturday night. Ahead of this front, with the upper ridge pushing
south and subsidence over the area weakening, expect rain chances
to return Friday afternoon and last through the weekend. Models
continue to indicate just enough instability (300-700 j kg mlcape)
and deep-layer shear (30-40 knots) to support the risk for a few
strong to marginally severe storms over our southeast mississippi
and interior southwest alabama counties Saturday afternoon.

Elsewhere, mostly just showers expected with perhaps a few rumbles
of thunder mixed in. Meanwhile, temperatures continue running
near record levels Friday and Saturday, with highs in the upper
70s and low 80s across the area. 49

Long term Sunday through Wednesday Scattered showers and
thunderstorms continue along and ahead of the front throughout the
day Sunday. The front then pushes offshore Sunday night, with
temperatures finally dropping back to more seasonal levels in its
wake. However, warm and moist southwest flow continues aloft,
overrunning the post-frontal dome of cool air and maintaining
likely rain chances into Monday. Surface flow shifts to easterly
and then southerly Tuesday and Wednesday as high surface pressure
to our north pushes east. With the weak overrunning pattern
persisting aloft, expect at least slight chance for showers to
continue through that time. Looking further upstream, another
surface low develops in the lee of the southern rockies on
Wednesday as the next upper-level shortwave ejects from the
southwest u.S. The cold front associated with that system is
expected to move east across the plains and towards our area
sometime late next week, with rain chances increasing along and
ahead of that front. 49

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
