Aviation
25 12z issuance...VFR conditions will generally prevail across
the region through the forecast period. Additional scattered to
locally numerous shra tsra are forecast to develop Sunday, with
the best coverage over interior areas, especially western half of
area. More shower and thunderstorm activity expected to continue
tonight vs past several nights, likely increasing in coverage
after midnight and especially toward daybreak Monday. Localized
heavy rainfall, reduced CIGS visibility, frequent lightning, and
brief gusty winds can be expected near stronger convection.

Surface winds primarily southeast to south today, more light and
variable again overnight tonight. 12 ds

Prev discussion issued 457 am cdt Sun aug 25 2019
near term now through Sunday night ... A broad mid level low pressure
circulation out over the gulf just off the coast of central
louisiana early this morning, and associated weak surface
reflection, will lift northeast into central mississippi by late
tonight. Already moist airmass over the region (pwats 2.0 to 2.2
inches) will increase through tonight (pwats 2.2 to 2.4 inches) as
moisture associated with this disturbance pools up south of a weak
stationary boundary stretching generally west to east across
mississippi and alabama. This will provide an increasingly unsettled
weather pattern across the region today, with scattered to locally
numerous showers and thunderstorms developing across much of the
area by late this afternoon. With the mid level dynamics moving into
the region overnight, will likely see continued high rain chances
tonight, especially over western zones. Although generally high
pops are expected both today and tonight, the potential for heavy
rain (while there for the entire near term period) will increase
late tonight into Monday. After coordination with wpc, the entire
area will be under a marginal risk of excessive rainfall tonight,
with a slight risk just to our west. By the very end of the near
term (toward daybreak Monday and into the short term period) much of
our area will also be in a slight risk area for excessive rainfall.

Through tonight, highest rainfall totals will be over the western
third of our forecast area, where 1.0 to 1.5 inches of rainfall will
be possible. Higher rainfall totals are then expected into Monday.

Some localized minor flooding is possible by very late tonight over
our western zones (and then continuing into Monday). With the rain,
clouds and increased moisture daytime temps today will be tempered
somewhat over the west, with highs in the upper 80s. Upper 80s also
expected along the coast, with lower 90s over interior east zones.

Lows tonight in the lower 70s most areas except along the coast
where mid to upper 70s are expected. 12 ds
short term Monday through Tuesday night ... Convection along and
east of upper trof axis is expected to be ongoing from the mid-
south to the central gulf coast Monday morning. A slow eastward
translation of the trof and associated enhanced ascent during the
day Monday brings periods of showers and storms. A deep moist
environment with pwats 2.2 to 2.4 inches feeding in off the gulf
and pooling into the slow moving trof and south of the quasi-
stationary frontal boundary over central al favors the potential
of locally heavy rain. Repeated storm motion over the same areas
may result in an increased potential of flooding over lower lying
and poor drainage areas. The main question is placement of the
heavier rains and considering the uncertainties, as mentioned in
the near term portion, the marginal risk of excessive flooding
rains has been upgraded to a slight risk Monday over much of the
local area. Storm totals could add up to between 2 and 4 inches
with some areas potentially receiving locally higher amounts.

Other impacts from stronger storms will be brief strong wind gusts
and frequent lightning. Severe weather risk remains low Monday
with 0-6 km bulk shear magnitudes 25kts or less. For Tuesday, axis
of upper trof migrates slowly east over the southeast but hangs
back enough to operate on lingering deep layer moisture to keep
the likelihood of showers and storms going. To the north, a large
long-wave trof over the south-central canadian provinces into the
northern high plains maintains a zone where mid level impulses
will track southeastward in a diffluent high level flow over the
deep south. This also supports an enhancement in lift and a
continuation in the unsettled weather potential. A surface front
will also be moving southeastward out of the plains Tuesday.

With clouds and rain, daytime highs look to recover no higher
than the lower half of the 80s Monday. Did make a lower
adjustment on highs for Tuesday given rain chances and cloud
cover. Lows this period hold in the 70s. 10
long term Wednesday through Saturday ... Additional energy dives
southeast into the deep south at the base of long-wave upper trof
which pivots east over the great lakes Wednesday. This brings a
surface front southward into the lower ms river valley. A chance
of showers and storms continues into Wednesday. Front approaches
the coast late Wednesday and is progged to make passage into the
gulf Thursday morning. Chances of rain will lower in the wake of
the frontal passage. The coolest night comes Thursday night with
night-time lows dipping into the mid to upper 60s north of i-10.

Highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s. Rain chances return into the
weekend. 10
marine... Light and somewhat variable winds over the marine area
early this morning will strengthen and become more southerly by
late this afternoon. A light to moderate south to southwest wind
is then expected through mid week. Low pressure developing off the
eastern seaboard will lift northeast through the week, allowing a
weak cool front over the southeastern states to drop down toward
the gulf coast and then offshore into the northeastern gulf by
late week. With this, a light to moderate northwest to northerly
flow is expected. Seas build slightly through the week. Periods of
showers and thunderstorms can be expected over the coastal waters
through the period. 12 ds
