431 am cdt Tue mar 26 2019

Near term now through Tuesday night A cold front has pushed
into the northern gulf of mexico early this morning in the wake of a
mid level trough axis that is now translating toward the east coast.

A much drier northwest mid level flow pattern has returned across
our region in the wake of the mid level trough and frontal passage.

A secondary upper level trough low located over southern missouri
early this morning is forecast to move southeastward toward the
vicinity of central alabama later this afternoon into early this
evening. An area of low cloudiness currently located over northern
ms al may develop southward across our forecast area through the
morning hours. A decrease in cloud cover may occur over southeast ms
and southwest al this afternoon though partly to mostly cloudy skies
may persist over south central al ahead of the approaching mid level
trough axis. There may be just enough moisture and weak ascent to
support a slight chance of rain showers over far northeastern
portions of our area (vicinity of butler, crenshaw, covington
counties) this evening, but we otherwise expect dry weather across
our region today into tonight. A cool northerly surface flow will
continue through tonight as surface high pressure builds southward
across the tennessee valley into ms al. High temperatures today will
range in the mid 60s to around 70 degrees. Cooler temperatures are
anticipated tonight with lows mostly ranging in the 40s. 21

Short term Wednesday through Thursday night An upper level
ridge will build over the area through Thursday. Meanwhile, a sfc
ridge of high pressure will stretch from the mid-atlantic into
the southeastern states. This will maintain clear skies and light
winds with highs in the upper 60s and low 70s. Lows will fall into
the low to mid 40s inland with lower 50s along the coast. 13

Long term Friday through Monday The upper ridge shifts east
on Friday with a light southeasterly flow developing ahead of a
developing system across the central plains. As deep layer
moisture returns to the area, rain chances will increase through
the weekend as a cold front approaches the area. The global models
diverge late in the period with the GFS stalling the front over
the gulf coast. A wave develops along the front Monday in
response to an approaching shortwave and moves across the area
Monday night into Tuesday. The ECMWF moves the front into the gulf
with the shortwave digging farther south and developing a sfc low
over the central gulf. Have maintained at least a chance for
showers through the weekend into early next week due to the large
uncertainty. 13

Marine A moderate northerly flow pattern will prevail over the
marine area today and tonight as high pressure builds into the
northern gulf of mexico. Small craft exercise caution headlines will
be needed today through early Wednesday morning over the coastal
waters, as well as mobile bay and the mississippi sound east of
pascagoula. A light to moderate easterly flow pattern returns late
Wednesday into Thursday, then southeasterly Friday and Saturday as
high pressure shifts across the western atlantic and southeastern
states. 21

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.
