Discussion See updated information for land areas below.

Update Performed some minor tweaks to the forecast for tonight,
generally touching up offshore winds and overnight low temps based
on latest surface obs. Lowered pops over our coastal alabama
counties between now and 7 am given current radar and satellite
trends. Maintained higher pops over our florida panhandle
counties, however, as an offshore MCV currently located ~50 miles
southwest of port saint joe, fl makes its way north towards the
coast through tonight and early Sunday am. 49

discussion... Updated for latest aviation discussion below.

Aviation...

00z issuance...VFR conditions will continue except near some
isolated thunderstorms over the northwest florida panhandle. Some
light patchy fog could be possible along and east of a line from
crestview fl to greenville al as winds will remain light out of
the south-southwest. Low-endVFR conditions will develop by mid-
morning with scattered showers and storms south of the highway 84
corridor during the afternoon. Bb 03
prev discussion... Issued 342 pm cdt Sat aug 17 2019
near term now through Sunday ... An upper high pressure area
extending from northwest mexico eastward over the southern plains
and northern gulf of mexico will shift slightly westward over the
next 24 hours. The western portion of the ridge is forecast to
build northward up the western high plains by late in the period,
while an upper trough begins to drop southward over the southeast
states. A surface high pressure ridge extending from the western
atlantic, across the florida peninsula and the gulf of mexico deep
south, will keep a light southerly wind flow over the forecast
area. This flow off the gulf will allow surface dewpoints to
climb back into the low to mid 70s through Sunday. The combination
of low level moisture overnight, mostly clear, and light winds
should result in patchy fog late tonight into Sunday morning. Dry
conditions area-wide will persist through midnight, followed by
isolated to scattered showers and a few thunderstorms moving
northward to the i-10 corridor by late tonight. These showers and
thunderstorms will continue to expand northward across the
forecast area, becoming numerous at times along the coastal
sections. Low temperatures tonight will be near normal, ranging
from 70 to 74 degrees inland areas, with mid to upper 70s along
the coast. High temperatures Sunday will be near to slightly above
normal, ranging from 91 to 96 degrees inland areas, with upper
80s to lower 90s along the coast. Heat indices Sunday will reach
100 to 107 degrees. 22
short term Sunday night through Tuesday night ... A weakness in
the upper level height field is expected to be present over the
southeast us during the short-term period. Embedded in the flow
aloft, the operational GFS shows a more well defined stronger
short-wave mid level impulse advancing across the mid ms river
valley Sunday night which drops southward over ms al Monday. If
this solution verifies, then a potentially more organized area of
deep, perhaps strong convection will be moving from north to south
over the local area by mid to late Monday afternoon. The 17.12z
ecmwf solution shows more of an inverted mid-level trof feature
moving little over the southeast but also hints at a southward
advancing mid level piece of energy, albeit weaker, over ms
during the day Monday. Deep layer moisture modifies with pwat's
ranging between 2.1 to 2.3 inches. At the surface, a weak pressure
trof and the better focus it would bring along with contributions
from approach of mid-level energy favors the likely initiation of
showers and storms Monday. Forecasters initially have early
morning showers and storms over the gulf waters early Monday
morning developing northward and increasing in coverage through
the day. A diurnal decrease in pops Monday night. With little
over-all change in the upper level height field and moisture
profiles, will maintain an unsettled weather day going into
Tuesday with pops returning to likely.

Before onset of daily storms, highs range from the lower to mid
90s inland and in the upper 80s to around 90 near the immediate
coast. Little change in overnight lows with numbers in the lower
to mid 70s inland and in the mid to upper 70s along the coast. 10
long term Wednesday through Saturday ... A potentially active
convective pattern looks to continue through much of next week as
the upper level weakness maintains its identity over the vicinity
of the north central gulf coast region. Latest daily pwat values
in the medium range average between 1.90" and 2.20". This combined
with available afternoon instability supports the development of
scattered to perhaps locally numerous showers and thunderstorms
each day. Convective coverage will tend to decrease in the
evening overnight hours.

Carrying over into the longer term, little change in highs and
lows. 10
marine... Surface high pressure will become better established
from the western atlantic to the north central gulf through midweek
leading to a better southwest wind flow through midweek. Better
coverage of showers and thunderstorms can be expected, especially
Sunday through Monday, as a weak frontal boundary near the coast
early today shifts inland. 22
