Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mobile AL 645 AM CDT Sat Jun 12 2021

AVIATION. 12Z issuance . Localized IFR to low end MVFR ceilings are clipping across interior portions of south central AL early this morning, with VFR conditions prevalent across the rest of the region. Scattered to numerous showers/storms are expected to develop across much of the area this afternoon and evening. Localized MVFR to IFR conditions can be expected near any convection that develops. Localized strong wind gusts in excess of 40 knots will be possible with the most intense storms that develop this afternoon and evening. 14/21

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 516 AM CDT Sat Jun 12 2021/

NEAR TERM UPDATE /Now Through Sunday/ . Northwest flow aloft continues today as the forecast area remains in between an upper level ridge to the west and an upper level trough to the east. A weak surface boundary moves across the area today in association with the upper level trough and developing surface low to our east, shifting surface winds from westerly to northwesterly. This surface boundary hangs around during the near term and will be the source for convective development across the area. Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected both today and Sunday, with the greatest coverage occurring today. A very moist and unstable environment can be expected ahead of the surface boundary with PWAT's ranging from 1.7 to 2 inches. CAPE values approaching 3000 to 3500J/Kg in combination with the surface boundary help support wet microburst potential across the area today. Most of the forecast area is included in a Marginal Risk this afternoon and evening with the potential for isolated strong to severe storms. Damaging wind gusts, heavy rain, and frequent lightning will be the main hazards with these storms.

By Sunday, the upper level ridge shifts just slightly west causing upper level flow to become northeasterly. Surface winds remain generally northwest with the surface boundary still located over the forecast area. Therefore, scattered to numerous storms can be expected again on Sunday.

Temperatures across the area will generally be in the upper 80s to low 90s today and will warm slightly on Sunday to the lower to mid 90s. Heat indices of 100 to 105 are possible this weekend. Lows will be in the low to mid 70s inland to upper 70s along the coast. /14

SHORT TERM /Sunday night Through Monday night/ . A mid to upper level trough slowly progresses south and east of the area Sunday night into Monday as the ridge centered over the Four Corners region begins to build east somewhat. Northerly to northeasterly (at times) winds aloft persist through the short term as the trough gets nudged out of the forecast area. Drier air on the backside of the mid level trough filters into much of Deep South on Monday, except right along the Gulf Coast. Down in the lower levels, the local area remains on the western periphery of a weak surface trough sliding through the Southeast while a weak surface ridge encompasses much of the Gulf. Moisture in the lower levels lingers across much of the area through Monday night. PWATs finally begin to trend downward by early Tuesday morning as a decent moisture gradient sets up across the area with 1.3-1.5 inch PWATs across inland communities and 1.6-1.9 inch PWATs across the coastal counties.

Showers and storms will likely still be ongoing as we head into the Sunday night timeframe, but will dwindle in coverage throughout the evening hours. Temperatures overnight will only fall into the mid to low 70s areawide. By Monday, temperatures will soar into the mid to low 90s. Dewpoints will unfortunately remain in the 70s on Monday, so heat indices will creep back up into the 102-107° range. Storm coverage on Monday will not be quite as high as what we will see over the weekend, but there will still be scattered showers and storms throughout the afternoon given the lingering surface trough and ample moisture. Overnight lows will almost be a carbon copy of Sunday night's temperatures, but a few spots north of the Highway 84 corridor might fall into the upper 60s. 07/mb

EXTENDED TERM /Tuesday Through Friday/ . Through the extended, the upper ridge over the western CONUS and upper trough over the east coast will largely prevail. Expecting a typical, summertime diurnal pattern through midweek, with daily chances of showers and storms developing over the Gulf and along the coast in the morning spreading inland through the day. However, by late week, models are indicating a disturbance entering the Gulf of Mexico, bringing a plethora of moisture along with it to the northern Gulf coast. Although, the GFS looks to be slower with this feature moving north over the Gulf coast than the ECMWF at this point. As the previous shift stated, we will monitor this as the forecast for late next week will depend on how this disturbance develops. For example, there could be a big increase in PoPs and associated heavy rain potential as model PWATs increase to be between 2.5-3.0 inches along the Gulf coast. However, it is still too early to know exactly when and where this might occur. Otherwise, a mainly diurnal summertime convective pattern could win out for late week. For now, stuck close to the PoPs given by the Blend, but did keep chances below likely due to model uncertainty and this being at the tail end of the forecast period.

Tuesday will be warm, as high temperatures top out in the lower to mid 90s (upper 80s at the beaches). With ample moisture present, heat indices will be in the upper 90s to lower 100s. Through Wednesday and Thursday, highs will be a touch cooler, with temperatures in the upper 80s to around 90 degrees (mid 80s at the beaches). Models indicate a fairly decent decrease in temperatures by Friday (compared to Tuesday), due to the potential for increased chances of rain. Highs are anticipated to generally be in the mid 80s. Lows will mainly be in the upper 60s to lower 70s north of I-10 and in the lower to mid 70s south through the period. /26/12

MARINE . Small Craft Exercise Caution conditions are expected today with westerly winds elevated between 15 and 20 knots with occasional higher gusts mainly over the open Gulf waters and including Lower Mobile Bay and the Mississippi Sound. /14
