near term now through Friday ... A sharp upper ridge over tx and
the central plains states will shift east to the north central
gulf states by midday Sat then move east of the region by late sat
afternoon. Near the surface a broad region of high pressure
mostly inline or coupled with the upper ridge also shifts east
over the north central gulf states on Fri leading to more dry
pleasant weather across the forecast area through Fri afternoon.

For tonight believe enough cold air moving in from the west
northwest ahead of the deep ridge to the west will allow for
enough mixing to help keep overnight lows near current MOS values.

The coolest spots tonight will be over western sections of the
forecast area mainly well inland from the coast were surface winds
diminish to 4 knots or less. For Fri expect sunny skies with
better subsidence in the boundary layer especially inland from the
coast possible leading to highs a tad above the current mos
numbers along with a good seabreeze generating along the coast due
to the warmer inland temps combined with cool near shore sea
surface temps.

Lows tonight will range from the upper 30s to lower 40s for most
inland areas, generally along and north of the i-10 corridor and the
middle 40s to lower 50s further south to the immediate coast. Highs
fri will range from the upper 60s to lower 70s for most inland areas
and the middle to upper 60s near the immediate coast, due to the
cooler sea surface temps and onshore flow during the afternoon.

32 ee
short term Friday night through Sunday night ... A dry northwest
mid level flow will persist across our forecast area Friday
night, before shortwave ridging aloft builds eastward across the
region on Saturday. Surface high pressure will meanwhile build
eastward across the north central gulf coast through Saturday
afternoon. Dry weather will continue across our region with this
pattern through Saturday. Lows Friday night will range from around
40 degrees to the mid 40s over the interior to the upper 40s to
around 50 near the coast. Highs Saturday afternoon should reach
near 70 along the coast and in the lower to mid 70s over inland
portions of the area.

The flow pattern aloft becomes more zonal across the region late
this weekend. A shortwave trough embedded in the flow will
translate across northern portions of ms al during the day Sunday,
before a more amplified shortwave tracks approaches the ms and tn
valley regions late Sunday night. Deeper moisture and ascent
associated with these next features should remain focused to the
north and northwest of our forecast area Sunday and Sunday night,
but may need to watch our far northwest zones (northern wayne
choctaw counties) for a possible low chance of rain approaching
toward early Monday morning. For now, we have left a dry forecast
intact through Sunday night. Lows Saturday night should range in
the mid 40s to around 50 over the interior, and lower to mid 50s
near the coast. Highs Sunday should range from around 70 to the
lower 70s near the immediate coast to the mid 70s over interior
areas. 21
long term Monday through Thursday ... The upper level trough axis
will progress eastward across the tn valley and adjacent portions
of ms al ga Monday into Monday night. An associated cold front
should also push across our forecast Monday evening into late
Monday night early Tuesday morning. Ascent along the trough axis
and frontal zone will bring a chance of rain showers to our region
during the Monday afternoon and evening time frame. A lingering
low chance of showers may persist over southern coastal areas into
late Monday night depending on the timing of the cold front.

Instability will be sufficient for a few thunderstorms Monday
afternoon and evening, but meager MLCAPE values of 500 j kg or
less and modest low level shear currently looks to keep any strong
to severe storm threat very isolated limited. A dry northwest flow
aloft returns Tuesday and Wednesday, before another shortwave
ridge aloft looks to follow for Thursday. We will keep a dry
forecast going through the latter part of the extended period.

Monday looks to be the warmest day of the week with highs in the
mid to upper 70s. Temperatures otherwise remain seasonably mild
through the rest of the week. 21
marine... A light to moderate westerly wind flow will persist over
the marine area through late Fri as a broad surface ridge of high
pressure over the central plains states slowly builds east. A better
southwest component can be expected near the coast Fri afternoon due
to afternoon seabreeze effects. A light southerly flow is expected
over the weekend as high pressure to the north shifts east to the
eastern seaboard with the highest winds likely occurring near the
coast and over inland bays and sounds due to good seabreeze
circulations. A better onshore flow is expected by early next week
as high pressure to the north continues to shift east. 32 ee

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.
