Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Mobile AL 514 PM CST Fri Jan 24 2020

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

UPDATE. Will be updating at 6 PM CST for the expiration of the High Risk of rip currents. No other major changes planned. /29

AVIATION. 00Z issuance . VFR conditions continue through the period. Westerly winds 5 to 10 knots subside to a light northwest flow overnight, then a northwesterly flow at 5 to 10 knots follows for Saturday. /29

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 321 PM CST Fri Jan 24 2020/

NEAR TERM /Now Through Saturday Night/ . Zonal flow sets up over the region tonight into Saturday as an upper level trough departs to the northeast and another trough out west begins to dig into southern Texas and northern Mexico. A surface low associated with the western trough begins to develop over the northwestern Gulf Saturday night while surface high pressure builds into the local area. Dry conditions are expected across the local area through this period, but rain chances begin to encroach on our SE MS counties by early Sunday morning as the surface low approaches and high pressure shifts to our east.

Lows tonight range from low to mid 30s inland to around 40 along the coast. Highs on Saturday reach the mid to upper 50s. Lows trend a few degrees warmer Saturday night, only dipping into the upper 30s and low/mid 40s as increasing cloud cover helps mitigate radiative cooling. /49

SHORT TERM /Sunday Through Monday night/ . Southern stream mid- level energy dives southeast out of the southern Plains Sunday morning with axis of trof crossing east over the central Gulf coast Sunday night. Wave of surface frontal low pressure over the western Gulf Sunday morning tracks slowly eastward over the central and eastern Gulf Sunday night into Monday. An increased chance of showers expected to close out the weekend with the highest coverage including convection more focused into the central Gulf closer to the low track and coincident with best upper level jet streak dynamics and instability. Precipitation chances decrease from west to east Monday as the Gulf low continues east and increases its distance from the local area. Monday night dry.

Daytime highs mid to upper 50s Sunday, lift into the upper 50s to lower 60s Monday. Over-night lows in the mid to upper 40s Sunday night trend 4 to 7 degrees cooler Monday night. /10

LONG TERM /Tuesday Through Friday/ . Weak upper ridge passes over the southeast while next southern stream impulse advances east over Texas Tuesday. The medium range guidance differs on speed of eastward translation of area of precipitation associated with upstream system with GFS slightly faster than the ECMWF. National blends support a slower solution consistent with the ECMWF which leaves PoPs at 10% or less Tuesday. Going into the middle of next week, quite a bit of spread occurs in the physicals. The operational GFS shows a well defined surface low (1005 mb) tracking eastward over the central Gulf coast Wednesday and Wednesday night while the ECMWF takes a weaker surface low eastward over the central Gulf Wednesday which dissipates by Thursday. The Canadian moves a complex front with a series of frontal waves along it anywhere from the Mid-South to the central Gulf coast Wednesday. Considering the spread and low confidence, best course of action will keep small PoPs Wednesday in lieu of higher rain chances to see if better continuity is reached on later runs. Latest extended range outlooks from WPC leans closer to the ECMWF solution.

Daytime high in the lower to mid 60s much of the week will be very close to seasonal normals. Numbers slightly cooler into the day Friday, upper 50s to lower 60s. Overnight lows remain cool. Lows mostly in the low to mid 40s much of the period. /10

MARINE . Will post small craft exercise caution headlines this evening over the open Gulf waters before wind begins to lower. High pressure moves east over the Gulf coast with seas to gradually subside this weekend. A weak surface low forms over the western Gulf Sunday and moves east southeast over the central Gulf Sunday night. Rain chances increase Sunday and Sunday night. Another low pressure system is forecast to move off the Texas coast late Tuesday and eastward over the western and central Gulf mid week. Offshore flow is anticipated through much of the period. /10

MOB WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. AL . High Rip Current Risk until 6 PM CST this evening for ALZ265-266.

FL . High Rip Current Risk until 6 PM CST this evening for FLZ202-204- 206.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
