427 am cdt Sat may 25 2019

Near term now through Saturday night A light southerly wind will
redevelop today, followed by light and variable to calm winds
overnight, as a surface ridge of high pressure remains across the
southeast CONUS and northeastern gulf of mexico. The strong 500mb
high pressure system will remain centered over the southeast
conus, keeping large scale subsidence and dry weather in place
over the region. The morning patchy fog, locally dense, across the
southern 2 3rds of the forecast area will burn-off shortly after
sunrise, followed by sunny to mostly sunny skies. High
temperatures today will be 6 to 11 degrees above normal, ranging
from 93 to 99 degrees inland areas, with heat indices around 100
degrees across south central alabama and the northern portions of
the western florida panhandle. With southerly winds off the gulf,
highs along the coastal sections will range from 87 to 92 degrees.

Patchy light fog is expected to form again tonight across the
extreme southwestern portion of the forecast area. Low
temperatures tonight will be 2 to 5 degrees above normal, ranging
from the mid to upper 60s inland areas, and from 70 to 75 degrees
along the immediate coastal sections. 22

Short term Sunday through Monday night The upper ridge
stretching north from upper level high pressure centered over the
northern gulf coast remains strong through Sunday night. The ridge
then begins to shift south and weaken a bit Monday through Monday
night as a series of shortwave systems begin to move east through
the northern end of the ridge. A low level ridge stretching west
over the northern gulf coast continues to bring gulf moisture
inland over the southeast in the low levels, but with southwest to
westerly mid to upper level flow, the mid and upper levels remain
dry. This dry upper level flow combined with subsidence from the
upper ridge will continue to keep the region generally dry into
the coming week. The strong upper level high pressure will also
continue to bring temperatures well above seasonal norms for the
short term, with high temperatures ranging from 95 to 100 Sunday
over inland portions of the forecast area, 92 to 98 Monday. Upper
80s to low 90s are expected along the coast heat indices will
generally rise into the 100 to 105 degree range Sunday over most
of the area, 95 to 103 Monday. Overnight temperatures will drop
into the upper 60s to low 70s inland, mid to upper 70s along the
coast. 16

Long term Tuesday through Friday A pair of strong upper systems
moving through an upper trough over the western CONUS will continue
to flatten the upper ridge over the northern half of the eastern
conus (bringing west to east zonal flow to these areas in the
process), whilst shifting the upper high centered over the northern
gulf coast southeastwards, to over the eastern gulf of mexico and
florida. These systems also move a weak cold front eastward across
the plains, strengthening the low level flow over the eastern plains
and lower mississippi river valley through Wednesday. From there,
the ECMWF moves the weak front southeast across the forecast area
before stalling the surface front along the northern gulf coast
Thursday into Friday, whilst the the GFS is advertising the front
remaining north of the forecast area. With strength of the upper
high high over the eastern gulf, am tending to lean towards the gfs
and a bit drier solution. For the current forecast, rain returns to
western portions of the forecast area Thursday and area wide Friday.

The decrease in, but still present, influence from the
weakening shifting upper ridge over the forecast area along with a
bit deeper moisture will allow for a small chance of mainly
afternoon thunderstorms. The upper ridge also brings enough
subsidence to the region to keep temperatures at above seasonal
levels, just not as much as the area is currently seeing.

Marine High pressure remains centered over the marine area
through early next week. Aside from a light to occasionally moderate
onshore flow developing with the seabreeze each day, winds will
remain light through early next week. A persistent swell from the
south will keep offshore wave heights slightly elevated today. A
light to moderate onshore flow becomes more established by Tuesday
as the high pressure center begins to shift east. 22

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
