Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Mobile AL 1138 PM CST Tue Jan 21 2020

DISCUSSION. See updated information for land areas and aviation discussion below.

NEAR TERM (Wednesday through Wednesday night). An upper level shortwave trough will slowly move east over the Plains, as an upper level ridge over the Mississippi River shifts east to over the East Coast. Low level high pressure stretching southwest over the Appalachians shifts east to over the Eastern seaboard in response, shifting low level flow from north/northeast to easterly, and easing the cool and dry northerly flow over the Southeast.

For Wednesday, upper level shortwave energy embedded in the flow ahead of the upper trough begins to move over the Mississippi River to over the Southeast, bringing increasing mid/upper level cloud cover to the forecast area and surrounding area later in the day Wednesday into Wednesday night. Subsidence from the upper level ridge and decreasing cool northerly flow will be tempered by the insolation reducing thickening cloud deck, but am still expecting a warmer day Wednesday then Tuesday. High temperatures topping out in the 50 to 55 degree range are expected.

Wednesday night, as low level flow become easterly, increasing isentropic upglide will bring an increasingly thicker cloud deck to the forecast area, with light rainshowers beginning to encroach over the forecast area from the west after midnight. Have went on the warm side of guidance, with the thickening cloud cover expected to help limit overnight radiational cooling. Low temperatures around seasonal expected, ranging from the upper 30s inland to the 40-45 degree range along the I-10 corridor to the coast. /16

AVIATION. 06Z issuance . VFR conditions expected through the forecast under increasing mid/upper level clouds. North winds around 5 knots will transition to northeasterly around 10 knots Wednesday, then easterly around 5 knots as surface high pressure passes north of the region. /16

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 601 PM CST Tue Jan 21 2020/

DISCUSSION . See updated information for land areas and aviation discussion below.

NEAR TERM UPDATE(TONIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY NIGHT) . A cold and very dry airmass has moved over the Southeast in the wake of the passage of an upper shortwave trough over the region. Low level high pressure that has moved over the Mississippi River Valley will shift east as an upper ridge over the Plains shifts east over the Mississippi River Valley, maintaining the cool and dry flow over the region. Another night of at/below freezing temperatures are expected across the forecast area tonight. Low temperatures ranging from the mid 20s over most of the area to around 30/low 30s along the coast are expected.

Wednesday into Wednesday night, the low level ridge continues to shift east, shifting low level flow to more easterly by the end of the day Wednesday, easing the cold northerly flow over the Southeast. An approaching upper level trough and preceding pieces of shortwave energy will bring increasing mid/upper level cloud cover, helping to temper daytime heating. The shift in low level flow combined with increasing upper subsidence as the upper ridge passes will be tempered somewhat by the increase in cloud cover, but a warmer day is expected Wednesday as compared to today. High temperatures in the 50-55 degree range are expected.

The upper shortwave trough/pieces of shortwave energy will move east over the Plains and Mississippi River through Wednesday night, with the increasing cloud cover tempering overnight cooling. Low temperatures ranging from the upper 30s inland to around 40 along the coast expected. /16

AVIATION . 00Z issuance . VFR conditions expected through the forecast. Northerly flow around 10 knots this evening will ease to around 5 knots over the area as it transitions to northeast to easterly overnight. Winds will continue to shift to east to southeast Wednesday as they rise back to around 10 knots. /16

PREV DISCUSSION . /issued 323 PM CST Tue Jan 21 2020/

NEAR TERM /Now Through Wednesday/ . A very dry deep layer airmass will continue to spread into our region through this evening along northwesterly flow aloft between a departing trough of low pressure near the southeast U.S. coast and a building ridge over the Plains and Mississippi Valley region. A cold surface ridge of high pressure will also continue to build southward into the area overnight. Clear skies are expected through this evening. Another freeze is expected to impact much of the region again tonight, and overnight lows are expected to range from the lower to mid 20s over much of our interior, and in the upper 20s to lower 30s closer to the coast.

A deep layer dry and subsident airmass will persist into Wednesday as the upper level ridge builds eastward over the forecast area. However, high clouds should begin to increase in coverage through Wednesday afternoon as the upper ridge shifts east of our region and as flow aloft transitions more southwesterly ahead of the next trough of low pressure moving across the Plains states. The surface ridge of high pressure also continues to shift toward the Eastern Seaboard Wednesday through Wednesday night, allowing surface flow to become more easterly across our region. High temperatures should modify into the lower 50s Wednesday afternoon. Deep layer moisture may tend to increase over western parts of our CWA late Wednesday night as the trough axis approaches the Mississippi Valley region. The increased moisture and perhaps some weak isentropic ascent could allow for the development of a few showers over our western zones late Wednesday night. Overnight lows will range from the mid to upper 30s inland to the lower to mid 40s over southern portions of the area. /21

SHORT TERM /Wednesday night Through Friday night/ . High pressure will rapidly move east as a shortwave digs across the plains states Wednesday night. An associated area of low pressure and trailing cold front will approach the area on Thursday bringing increasing rain chances. Rain chances will end from west to east Thursday night into Friday morning as the cold front moves east of the area. The lack of significant return flow ahead of the system will limit the heavy rain and thunderstorm threat. Any storms will likely be confined to the marine area. Temps will gradually moderate through period. /13

LONG TERM /Saturday Through Tuesday/ . High pressure will build into the region on Saturday. Meanwhile, an upper level shortwave will quickly traverse the northern Gulf Saturday night into Sunday, bringing an increase in clouds and possibly a few showers to the offshore marine area. Early next week an upper ridge is expected to build across the eastern states with temps returning to above normal levels. /13

MARINE . A moderate to strong northerly flow will continue over the marine area through this evening as surface high pressure continues to build southward across the region. The flow gradually becomes northeasterly to easterly late tonight into Wednesday as the surface ridge shifts to the east of the area. We will maintain a Small Craft Advisory for offshore marine zones 20-60 nm out, where northerly winds will continue to average near 20 knots through late tonight. Small craft exercise caution headlines will be needed over the nearshore waters as well as Lower Mobile Bay and the Mississippi Sound, where speeds of 15-20 knots will continue. A low pressure system and associated cold front still looks to advance eastward across the Gulf Coast late Thursday into Friday morning. Another round of rain showers will accompany this system, a few of which could contain locally heavy rainfall over the marine area Thursday night. Offshore flow and drier weather will return Friday through the weekend. /21

MOB WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. AL . None. FL . None. MS . None. GM . Small Craft Advisory until 3 AM CST Wednesday for GMZ670-675.

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.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
