Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mobile AL 358 PM CDT Thu Oct 21 2021

NEAR TERM UPDATE /Now Through Friday/. A weak shortwave trough embedded within zonal flow aloft extends across far southeast MS and into much of southwest and south central AL early this afternoon. A weak surface trough also extends across southeast MS into portions of southwest AL. Deep layer moisture remains enhanced along and ahead of these features, with precipitable water values elevated between 1.6-1.8 inches across far southeast MS into areas roughly along and east of the I-65 corridor. Weak ascent associated with the mid level shortwave trough and low level moisture convergence along the surface trough axis has resulted in the development of scattered to numerous showers and a few thunderstorms across the above mentioned areas through the morning. MLCAPE values have been enhanced around 2000 J/KG across portions of southeast MS and southwest AL this afternoon. This increased instability along with about 25 knots of deep layer shear has been sufficient for the development of a couple of stronger storms that have produced locally heavy rainfall amounts in excess of 2 inches, as well as frequent lightning strikes and brief gusty winds over 30 mph in a few spots across far southeast MS and into Mobile county AL during the past few hours.

Isolated to scattered showers and storms should continue to develop along and east of the I-65 corridor including into the western FL panhandle through the afternoon hours and we will continue to monitor for a few stronger storms capable of producing locally heavy rainfall and brief gusty winds. There may be a lull in activity by early this evening, but short range and high resolution model solutions have been in fairly good agreement with bringing another batch of scattered showers and thunderstorms to interior portions of southeast MS and southwest AL ahead of an approaching weak cold front later this evening. A few showers and storms could potentially develop southward toward the coast after midnight. There are indications that ongoing convection will gradually become more isolated and weaken with time after midnight. We will maintain chance POPs over interior areas until around 06Z/1 AM CDT, with only a slight chance of convection persisting after 09Z/4 AM CDT farther south across the rest of the region. Conditions will become favorable for the development of patchy to areas of fog late tonight into early Friday morning, especially across the western FL panhandle and into southern portions of south central/ southwest AL and southeast MS. Dense fog could become a concern over this portion of our region and later shifts will monitor for a potential Dense Fog Advisory issuance.

The weak frontal boundary will sag southward into our forecast area late tonight into Friday, and this boundary may become oriented near the coast by late Friday afternoon. A much drier airmass will filter into the majority of the area on Friday and generally expect dry conditions to prevail. The exception could be near the AL and western FL panhandle coast, where an isolated shower or storm could develop ahead of the boundary. Lows tonight will range as low as 55-60 degrees across portions of Wayne, Choctaw, Clarke, and Wilcox counties behind the boundary tonight, while ranging in the 60s across most of the remainder of the area (except near 70 degrees along the beaches). Highs on Friday will range in the lower 80s over most of our CWA, except upper 70s to around 80 degrees across interior portions of southeast MS and southwest AL.

Residual swell is likely aiding in continued moderate to strong rip currents along area beaches today. Swell should diminish late this afternoon into early this evening. The HIGH rip current risk should decrease to MODERATE by this evening and have reflected this expectation in an updated Rip Current Statement and Surf Zone Forecast. A LOW rip current risk looks to prevail Friday through this weekend. /21

SHORT TERM /Friday night Through Sunday night/. Upper level ridging builds in the beginning of the period Friday night into Saturday before gradually transitioning to a more zonal flow by Sunday over the area. At the surface, high pressure dominates Friday night into Saturday before moving east offshore the southeast U.S. Saturday night into Sunday. A surface cold front stalled across coastal counties Friday night into Saturday serves mostly as a boundary between moist air over the marine zones and dry air across the land areas. Expect this to modulate as the surface high shifts east into Saturday night and Sunday, shifting winds to more southeasterly over the area and bringing in better low level moisture into Sunday. With that said, precipitation chances are non- existent with dry mid/upper levels and low levels, at least until Saturday evening. An isolated shower or storm may make their presence known over marine and coastal areas heading into Sunday night with better moisture return beginning.

Temperatures were probably the most involved part of the forecast, weighting MOS guidance heaviest for overnight lows Friday night and Saturday night. Light winds and clear skies with high pressure influencing the region supports idealized radiational cooling, and it makes sense to go on the cooler side of guidance (in this case the MOS which handles these regimes well). Overnight lows Friday night will be in the lower to middle 50's, with upper 50's to lower 60's along the coast. Saturday night will be a hair warmer with lows in the middle to upper 50's and lower 60's along the coast. Sunday night is much warmer as warm, moist air advects inland allowing lows to dip only into the middle to upper 60's. Highs will be more steady state with generally upper 70's to lower 80's. MM/25

EXTENDED TERM /Monday Through Thursday/. Much of the extended forecast continues to be of low confidence as guidance continues to struggle on the evolution of two upper-level troughs. On Monday, the Euro shows a trough digging into the southeastern US, whereas the GFS keeps it well to the north, eventually having it dig off the Eastern Seaboard. Regardless of the outcome, kept PoPs at 40% for Monday due to onshore flow and pwats increasing to 1.6 to 1.8 inches. Tuesday, the models do agree that our weather will be dominated by an upper-level ridge building over the area. Subsidence from the ridge should limit precip coverage, but with a continuation of high pwat values, still kept a slight chance of PoPs on Tuesday. Uncertainty returns on Wednesday as a large, deepening upper-level trough begins to dig towards the area along with an associated, approaching surface cold front. GFS hints at a shortwave trough pushing over the area on Wednesday morning, out ahead of the main trough. This solution would lead towards a more widespread rain event, with embedded thunderstorms, starting early Wednesday morning and lasting throughout the day. The Euro, on the other hand, suggests a thinner line of thunderstorms pushing through the area Wednesday afternoon/evening out ahead of the cold front. For now, leaned closer to GFS ensembles, as they suggest that the most active weather could occur Wednesday afternoon and into the evening but for a longer duration than the Euro. Thursday should be quieter, but kept 20-30% PoPs due to uncertainty of the cold front's progression. /96

MARINE. No significant impacts are anticipated over the marine area through the period, except for the potential of moderate easterly to southeasterly winds late this weekend, when small craft operators may need to exercise caution. /21
