Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

626 pm cdt Tue jun 19 2018

Discussion See updated information for land areas below.

Update Isolated early evening thunderstorms have developed
along a northward moving seabreeze across inland southeast
mississippi and southwest alabama, aided by several convective
outflow boundaries and surface temps in the upper 80s. Sent a
quick update to the zone forecast to account for these
thunderstorms through 9 pm. 22

Aviation...

00z issuance... A few isolated storms ongoing over far southwest
alabama and southeast mississippi dissipate after sunset this
evening.VFR conditions and light south to southwest winds then
expected through the period. Redevelopment of isolated showers and
storms will be possible Wednesday afternoon and evening. 49
prev discussion... Issued 405 pm cdt Tue jun 19 2018
near term now through Wednesday ... Upper ridging remains solidly
in place across the region. As a result, no convective activity
has developed across our forecast area so far this afternoon, but
kmob radar and visible satellite both indicate seabreeze
circulation is finally developing late this afternoon. The more
enhanced cloud development is over coastal al and into interior
southeast ms, and an isolated shower or storm could still develop
in those locations late this afternoon and linger into the early
evening hours. Otherwise, no pops tonight with partly cloudy
skies, light winds and overnight temperatures in the low to mid
70s. Upper ridging weakens slightly on Wednesday, with lower
levels generally unchanged. Low level moisture remains abundant,
and with the slight weakening aloft could see a little more
convective activity Wednesday afternoon, but not likely more than
isolated coverage. Another hot one on Wednesday, with daytime
highs near or perhaps just above normal, in the low to mid 90s and
heat indices again in the 100-102 degree range. 12 ds
short term Wednesday night through Friday night ... An upper trof
over the eastern plains now looks to dig a bit further southward
while advancing into the eastern states through Friday. This
portends a better chance for rain during part of the period by
bringing a stronger series of shortwaves across the region and
also pushing an upper ridge from over the extreme southeast states
and northeastern gulf southward into the central gulf. A surface
low associated with the upper trof moves from northwest missouri
to near the ohio mississippi river confluence on Friday. In
response, a surface ridge over the central gulf coast states and
northeast gulf is pushed southward to extend east-west across the
central gulf. This sets up a southwesterly low mid level flow
with deep layer moisture increasing, aided by the departure of
subsidence effects associated with the upper ridge. In addition to
this pattern is a surface trof over the extreme southeast states
which weakens through Thursday and looks to dissipate Thursday
night. This feature, combined with the improving deep layer
moisture and a stronger series of shortwaves moving across the
area looks to support scattered convective development on good
chance pops on Thursday but an upgrade to likely pops could be
necessary over interior areas. A series of shortwaves continue to
move across the area on Friday and a modest sea breeze will
probably develop, but with the loss of the weak surface trof
expect isolated to potentially scattered convective development.

The stronger storms each day will be capable of gusty winds and
frequent lightning. Heat index values up to 102 or so are expected
each day. 29
long term Saturday through Tuesday ... The eastern states upper
trof shears out on Saturday although a vigorous series of
shortwaves will move across the eastern states through Sunday. An
upper ridge meanwhile begins to build over the central states then
spreads into the region through Tuesday. While a surface ridge
over the central gulf shifts into the northern gulf, a surface low
passing well to the north brings a surface trof into the extreme
southeast states. With this pattern, have gone with mainly slight
chance pops on Saturday which gradually trend to chance pops for
the entire area later in the period. Heat index values of 100 to
105 are expected each day. 29
marine... A mainly light to moderate onshore flow will persist
into early next week as surface high pressure extends from the
western atlantic to the eastern gulf of mexico. There may be a
slight offshore flow over bays and near the coast late and night
and early morning hours. Seas initially around 2 feet offshore
tonight then increase slightly by the weekend as the onshore flow
increasing somewhat. Winds and waves will only be locally higher
near isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms. 12 ds
