Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Mobile AL 721 PM CDT Mon Jun 1 2020

AVIATION. 00Z issuance . VFR conditions will prevail overnight with isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms increasing in coverage on Tuesday. MVFR conditions will be possible in and around showers and storms during the day on Tuesday. /13

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 324 PM CDT Mon Jun 1 2020/

NEAR TERM UPDATE /Now Through Tuesday/ . We remain on track with dry conditions across our area today with the expansive upper ridge centered over the southeastern US. This ridge will begin to retreat to the southeast over the Florida Peninsula as an upper level low moves into the ARKLATEX region. This will allow for a band of mid-level convergence over the western Florida Panhandle and south-central Alabama tonight. A few showers and thunderstorms will be possible late this afternoon and evening before moving offshore tonight. Flow will slowly become more easterly to southeasterly tonight leading to an increase in deep moisture across the area. With better moisture, expect more showers and thunderstorms tomorrow. With the high overhead, temperatures are well on their way to 90 degrees inland with upper 80s at the coast. Highs tomorrow will likely be a tick cooler as the upper ridge moves southeast and more clouds move into the area. Expect highs to climb into the upper 80s inland to low 80s at the coast. Lows will also be warm with lows in the mid to upper 60s. Rip current risk will increase to moderate tomorrow as southeasterly winds increase. BB/03

SHORT TERM /Tuesday night Through Thursday night/ . Axis of short-wave upper ridge slips east across the eastern Gulf Tuesday night while an upper trof sets up over the Lower MS River Valley Wednesday. In the lower levels, high pressure anchored over the southwest Atlantic noses westward across the central Gulf coast. With the upper trof axis centered closer to the area mid-week combined with a much improved deep layer environmental moisture profile characterized by pwats ~1.9 inches, a small chance (20 to 30%) of showers and storms along the coastal tier of zones Tuesday night increases to a modest chance (40 to 60%) areawide during the day Wednesday at time of better daytime instability. Considering weak deep-layer wind profiles, the threat of severe storms remains low. Going into Wednesday night, the upper trof axis is more centered over the heart of the forecast area. A slight chance to chance PoP remains in the forecast during that time along the coast and over portions of south-central Alabama where deep-layer ascent will be favored on the east side of the upper trough. A similar pattern continues Thursday into Thursday night as the upper trough axis lingers over the local area. Modest rain chances return areawide (slightly higher along the coast and east of I-65) Thursday afternoon with the peak of daytime heating before retreating to the coast again Thursday night.

Highs Wednesday remain below normal due to overcast skies and shower/thunderstorm activity, with temps remaining in the low to mid 80s. Highs return to the mid/upper 80s Thursday afternoon. Lows stay warm and muggy through the period, in the upper 60s inland to low 70s along the coast. /49

EXTENDED TERM /Friday Through Monday/ . The upper level trough departs to the east Friday. However, an upper level weakness will continue over the area into the weekend. As a result, an unsettled pattern continues with showers and thunderstorms across the region each day through the extended term. Expect the highest coverages during afternoon hours when instability will be greatest. High temps reach the mid to upper 80s each afternoon through the period. Low temps continue to run in the upper 60s to low 70s.

Looking at the Gulf, Tropical Depression Three currently located on the west coast of the Yucatan peninsula is expected to move west-northwestward into the southern Bay of Campeche later today, where the environment appears favorable for development into a tropical storm over the next 24 hours. This system will drift slowly westward across the Bay of Campeche through midweek with no impacts to our local area. A broad region of low pressure remains over that region thereafter through the extended term. This will warrant close monitoring as model guidance suggests it could serve as a focus for additional tropical development in the southern or southwestern Gulf this weekend. /49

MARINE . Light to occasionally moderate easterly flow will continue to slowly shift out of the southeast by Tuesday as the surface high moves over the southwestern Atlantic. A few showers and thunderstorms will be possible each day as moisture increases across the marine areas. A brief period of small craft exercise caution will be possible on Tuesday as the ridge moves east. Seas will be around 2 feet beginning tomorrow increasing to about 3 to 5 feet by Friday. Seas could continue to increase this weekend as an area of disturbed weather moves north into the central Gulf. We will have to monitor the tropical disturbance carefully but as of now the only impacts appear to be increasing swell. BB/03

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.
