502 am cdt Wed oct 16 2019

Near term now through Wednesday night Only spotty shower
activity currently on the radar screen as the band of convection
that moved through the area overnight has now moved east of our
area. However, convection will start filling in over the next few
hours ahead of the cold front currently extending southwestward
from central tn, across northeast ms and through northeast la
into eastern tx. Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms
expected this morning ahead of the front with showers becoming
numerous at times over our more coastal counties. Instability is
expected to remain insufficient to allow the development of any
severe thunderstorms. The front is expected to rapidly move
southeastward across our region this morning and out over coastal
waters by early afternoon. Aside from a few spotty showers,
precipitation should cease in the wake of the front. Northerly
winds behind the front will transport cooler and drier air over
the region. Rainfall amounts this morning are expected to remain
below flash flood guidance values with overall totals generally
remaining below an inch but with local maximums of 1 to 2 inches
possible.

Today's maximum temperatures will be highly dependent on
the timing of the frontal passage. Since the front will move
through our northern interior SE ms and SW al counties early this
morning, their temperatures will only climb into the lower 70s
otherwise temperatures should climb into the mid to upper 70s with
low 80s possible near the coast and over eastern portions of
south central al, and NW fl. Tonight's lows should be considerably
cooler than we have experienced in a long time with our more
interior ms and al counties falling into the mid to upper
40s... Otherwise low to mid 50s are anticipated except along the
coast where winds will likely stay up enough to keep temperatures
in the upper 50s to low 60s. 08

Short term Thursday through Friday night A dry and cool
weather pattern will settle over the area for the remainder of the
work week as surface high pressure ridges in from the north and a
ridge builds in aloft. Daytime highs will range from the upper
60s over our northwest interior locations to mid 70s along the
coast. Overnight lows should bottom out in the upper 40s to low
50s over more interior locations to near 60 along the coast. 08

Long term Saturday through Tuesday A return to a wet and warm
weather pattern returns over the weekend. The upper level ridge
shifts east and southwesterly flow prevails aloft. Surface high
pressure along the eastern seaboard ridging southwestward over
the north central gulf region shifts east out over the western
atlantic creating a moderate to strong onshore flow over the
forecast area. The ECMWF and the GFS both project the trough of
low pressure currently over southern mexico and the bay of
campeche to get caught up in a shortwave trough aloft and develop
into a subtropical low and propagate northeastward making landfall
in the north central gulf region sometime Saturday or Saturday
night. As of 2 am edt NHC is giving this trough of low pressure a
40% chance of cyclone formation in the next 5 days. Although,
there's still a lot of uncertainty in the details this far out in
time, it appears increasingly likely we could receive a moderate
to a large amount of rainfall this weekend. Our region remains,
under an active, moist southwesterly flow pattern aloft with a
moist onshore flow at the surface through Monday with both the
ecmwf and the GFS indicating another cold frontal passage Monday
night followed by drier and cooler weather late Tuesday. Have
kept the probability of precipitation elevated throughout the long
term portion of the forecast. 08

Marine A light to moderate westerly wind flow this morning will
become more northerly this afternoon as a cold front pushes southward
across the marine area. A moderate to strong offshore flow develops
tonight creating periods of cautionary boating conditions for small
craft into Friday. Winds become easterly on Friday and strengthen creating
hazardous boating conditions for small craft. Winds veer
southeasterly on Saturday and remain strong then gradually weaken
Saturday night into Sunday. 08

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.
