334 pm cdt Sat jul 20 2019

Near term now through Sunday An unsettled weather pattern
continues through the weekend as weak upper ridging over the central
and midwestern CONUS maintains a northeast flow over the local area.

Weak shortwave impulses embedded within this flow continue to
provide enough support for scattered to numerous showers and
thunderstorms across the area. While there should be a lull in
activity early tonight after daytime heating shuts down, am
expecting some redevelopment to occur offshore and along the coast
late tonight into early Sunday morning, similar to last night though
not quite as extensive. This activity gradually spreads inland
during the day Sunday, with the greatest coverage occurring over
southeast mississippi and southwest alabama counties where deeper
moisture will reside (pwats around 2.00 inches). Slow storm motion
and ample tropospheric moisture content will present a minor
flooding risk for urban areas and small creeks and streams,
particularly in the aforementioned areas where thunderstorm coverage
will be greatest. In terms of temperatures, expect highs to remain a
few degrees cooler than normal (upper 80s) over the western half of
the area Sunday afternoon due to increased cloud cover from showers
and storms. Farther east over south-central alabama and the interior
florida panhandle, thunderstorm coverage will be more scattered and
peeks of sunshine will allow temps to reach the low to mid 90s. 49

Short term Sunday night through Tuesday night An inverted mid
level trof will continue to slowly move westward across the area
through Monday. The combination of the trof along with plenty of
deep layer moisture and daytime heating will lead to scattered to
locally numerous showers and thunderstorms again on Monday. A
digging upper trof over the eastern states will send a cold front
into the area Monday night into Tuesday. This will keep even
higher rain chances on Tuesday as the front slowly moves south.

Locally heavy rain will continue to be the primary threat. 13

Long term Wednesday through Saturday The frontal boundary
sinks a bit more to the southeast and becomes quasi-stationary
near or just off the coast by Wednesday. Showers and storms look
to be likely over the western fl panhandle to coastal alabama and
points offshore Wednesday and Thursday with lower rain chances to
the north. The front will likely move back northward late in the
week with showers storms likely over a larger part of the area.

Considering the front, clouds and rain chances, daytime highs
through much of the medium range look to stay in the 80s.

Overnight lows may dip into the mid 60s over the northwest zones
Wednesday and Thursday mornings.

Marine High pressure over the western atlantic and eastern gulf
maintains a generally light onshore flow across the area through
Monday. Winds shift to westerly early to mid next week as high
pressure builds west into the central gulf and a front approaches
the local area from the north. Showers and thunderstorms continue
through the forecast period, some of which could produce gusty
winds. 49

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.
