Deeper convection is ending for the evening, although scattered showers and patches of mainly light rain will continue over some areas for the next few hours. Some locations will continue to see low end MVFR (around 1000 feet) ceilings this early this evening, but many areas improving to IFR ceilings sometime after about 17/02z. Look for another round of showers and a few thunderstorms again by Monday morning, then persisting through the day. MVFR to occasionally IFR ceilings will again be possible on Monday, as well as brief periods of IFR visibility in heavy rainfall associated with some of the convection. Surface winds primarily light east to southeast through the period. DS/12

A plume of tropical moisture continues to lift northward into much of our forecast area this afternoon along the western periphery of an upper level ridge of high pressure centered over the vicinity of the Carolinas. Numerous showers and thunderstorms have developed within the plume of deep moisture and a few storm cells have been strong with gusty winds of 40-50 mph and frequent lightning strikes given moderate instability (MLCAPE values up to around 2500 J/KG).
Some storms have produced locally heavy rainfall with pockets of 1- 3" estimated by radar across a few locations in southwest/south central AL and the western FL panhandle. Convective coverage should gradually decrease this evening into tonight, but will leave low chance POPs in place given the persistent plume of deep moisture in place over our area.

The strong upper level ridge of high pressure will remain centered over the Carolinas into southern Virginia on Monday. The axis of deeper moisture will become more focused across southeast MS into southwest Alabama along the western side of this feature Monday.
Another round of numerous to widespread showers and storms will develop again Monday morning into Monday afternoon, with the best coverage expected in southeast MS and far southwest AL within the deeper moisture plume. Will keep POPs high between 60-80% across this portion of our CWA Monday, with POPs between 30-50% over the eastern part of our region. Locally heavy rainfall will also be possible again, but any flooding threat should be very localized.
Lows tonight range from around 70 to the lower 70s over inland areas and in the mid 70s to around 80 degrees along the coast. Highs Monday range from the upper 80s over southeast MS/southwest AL and in the lower 90s across the eastern part of the region.

Persistent southeasterly flow and increasing swell will result in a HIGH risk of dangerous rip currents along area beaches tonight into Monday and likely through the upcoming week. /21

Upper ridging is in no rush to go anywhere as it remains generally parked across the southeastern U.S. through Friday. Ridging finally begins to break down somewhat as we head into the weekend as an upper trough digs in across the Great Lakes into Midwest states by Sunday. Generally anticipate the typical diurnal cycle for this time of year with afternoon isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms each day, mainly in association with the sea- breeze boundary pushing inland. Best chances will remain confined across coastal counties of Alabama and the Florida Panhandle.
Daily highs will stay warm in the upper 80's to lower 90's, perhaps pushing middle 90's by mid to late week. Overnight lows remain toasty with generally lower to middle 70's expected.
Interior portions of the area may see a couple nights that manage to sneak into the upper 60's.

A High Risk of rip currents will remain in effect through the entire period. A High Surf Advisory also goes into effect starting late Monday night and lasts through Wednesday night. Surf heights increase significantly Monday into Tuesday up to around 5 to 7 feet and remains elevated at these heights through Wednesday night.

There remains a large amount of model spread regarding the evolution of a trough split across the southwestern Atlantic and resultant transition into a tropical disturbance. Given the aforementioned ridging and surface high in place this tropical disturbance will likely race westward into the southeastern U.S.
coast. Depending on its track, we could see another increase in rain and thunderstorm chances as we head into the latter part of this week. MM/25

A light to moderate southeasterly flow will persist through tonight.
A moderate to strong southeasterly flow along with building seas is anticipated Monday through early Thursday as the gradient increases between low pressure developing over the southwestern Gulf and high pressure across the Atlantic. E/SE winds increasing to 15-25 knots along with seas building to 6-9 feet have prompted the issuance of a Small Craft Advisory starting late Monday night and continuing into early Thursday morning. Winds and seas will also be locally higher near scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms. /21
