NEAR TERM...
(Now through Tuesday)
Issued at 358 PM CDT Mon Apr 15 2024

Dry and pleasant conditions continue through early this week. An upper level ridge lingers overhead through tonight before gradually sliding eastward on Tuesday while a surface high pressure remains meanders over the Florida Peninsula and far western Atlantic. Low level moisture will continue to increase given the persistent onshore flow, but the only real impacts of this boundary layer moisture will be the potential for patchy to areas of fog late tonight into early Tuesday morning. Guidance is especially pinging on areas of fog over in south central Alabama and the Florida panhandle and a Dense Fog Advisory may be needed in these areas. Outside of any fog development, conditions will remain dry with increasing clouds expected on Tuesday. Low temperatures tonight drop down into the middle 50s over far south central Alabama with upper 50s and lower 60s over the remainder of the area. Highs on Tuesday warm back into the lower and middle 80s inland with upper 70s along the immediate coastal interface. /14

SHORT/LONG TERM...
(Tuesday night through Monday)
Issued at 358 PM CDT Mon Apr 15 2024

Rather non-impactful weather pattern continues through the early part of the weekend, and generally into the early part of next week as well. Upper ridging will be sliding east of the forecast area Tuesday night into Wednesday, with general zonal flow aloft then expected over the Gulf coast region into the early part of this coming weekend. At the surface, high pressure centered over the western Atlantic off the Florida east coast ridges back toward the west and across our area through late week. This will maintain a mostly onshore low level flow across our area this week, with moisture gradually increasing, but little if any precipitation is expected through the week. With the increased low level moisture could see some patchy late night fog at times this week. There could be some subtle shortwave energy in the westerly flow aloft that could force an isolated shower or two, but will not carry any PoP at this time through Saturday. Late Saturday night into Sunday a slightly more pronounced upper trough will move across the Gulf coast states and may provide for some more unsettled weather in the form of increased rain chances and perhaps an isolated storm or two prior to the approach of a cold front late Saturday night into Sunday. At this time we will carry a 30-50 percent PoP across the area for Sunday. By Monday of next week, the front passes to our east and ridging aloft begins to rebuild across our area, so the chances for rain will be short lived. Warm temperatures expected through most of the week with highs in the 80s and lows in the 60s. By the end of the forecast period look for a slight cool down, with highs mainly in the 70s Sunday and Monday. Sunday night lows will be cooler as well, mainly in the 50s. DS/12
