434 am cdt Wed aug 21 2019

Near term now through Wednesday night Deep upper ridge stretching
from west to east across much of the deep south and central
plains continues to weaken on the eastern periphery generally from
the north central gulf states to the lower ms river valley mostly
in response to a persistent mid level weak trof that now
stretches from the western carolinas to the lower ms river valley,
including northern and western sections of the forecast area,
shifting slowly west. Deeper moisture is noted generally south and
along the mid level the trof progged to shift west northwest
across western parts of SW al and much of inland SE ms by late
this afternoon and this evening. As noted earlier weak shear and
instability across the region continues resulting in much less
coverage of showers and thunderstorms offshore and along the coast
this morning compared to the last couple of days and will likely
continue through this afternoon and tonight. With this pattern
expect mostly scattered coverage of showers and thunderstorms to
form across the forecast area today possibly becoming numerous at
times over parts of inland southeast ms late this morning through
mid to late afternoon tapering off quickly this evening due to the
limited shear and instability. Latest model soundings support
this reasoning with pwats ranging from 1.8 to 2.0 inches over
eastern and coastal areas and from 2.0 to 2.10 inches to the west
and northwest. Similar to yesterday the biggest concern with the
heavier showers or thunderstorms will be periods of very heavy
rain possibly leading to some nuisance flooding in lower terrain
where drainage is poor. Gusty straight line winds and frequent
cloud to ground lightning will also be possible mainly with some
of the stronger thunderstorms by mid to late afternoon.

A moderate risk for rip currents will continue along the gulf
beaches of al and nwfl through tonight.

Temperatures will continue to be lower compared to last week running
to near of slightly below seasonal norms. Highs today will range
from the upper 80s to the lower 90s generally along and east of the
i-65 corridor, upper 80s to the west and the middle 80s along the
immediate coast. Lows tonight will be near seasonal norms ranging
from the lower 70s for most inland areas and the middle to upper 70s
generally along and south of the i-10 corridor. 32 ee

Short term Thursday through Friday night An unsettled weather
pattern will remain in place over the region through the short
term period. A surface ridge of high pressure will remain in place
across the area with an accompanying very moist low level airmass
with precipitable water values around 1.8 inches Thursday
increasing to over 2.20 inches by Friday night. A weak upper
level weakness becomes more pronounced through the period as a
shortwave trof develops over the central gulf coast. With this
moist and somewhat unstable pattern, expect scattered to sometimes
numerous showers and thunderstorms to continue each day. Showers
and thunderstorms will be diurnal in nature, starting near the
coast in the morning and spread inland through the late morning
and afternoon hours. Convective coverage will be most numerous
over the land areas during peak daytime heating, and more numerous
offshore during the overnight hours. The upside to the fairly
widespread rain and associated clouds will be that daytime
temperatures will closer to normal, with highs in the upper 80s to
lower 90s. Lows will continue to range from the lower 70s over
inland locations to the mid upper 70s closer to and along the
coast. 12 ds

Long term Saturday through Tuesday Very little change in the
pattern through the extended range as plenty of deep layer
moisture will continue across the gulf coast with precipitable
water values generally remaining over 2.0 inches. This will
continue the pattern of diurnally driven scattered to locally
numerous showers and thunderstorms each day. 12 ds

Marine A light southerly flow will continue over the marine area
through the remainder of the week with better winds and seas
occurring during the afternoon and early evening hours due to
daytime heating. Seas will generally range from 1 to 2 feet out to
60 nm offshore possibly becoming locally higher with some of the
stronger thunderstorms throughout much of the week. Frequent
lightning strikes and waterspouts will also be possible with some of
the heavier showers or thunderstoms through the forecast period.

Less coverage of showers and thunderstorms can be expected through
fri. 32 ee

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.
