355 pm cdt Sun aug 18 2019

Near term now through Monday A surface through extending
from northern alabama to northern florida will remain nearly
stationary over the next 24 hours, but weaken slightly Monday
afternoon. An upper level shortwave, along with several strong
embedded impulses, exiting the midwest states will pass over the
great lakes and ohio river regions tonight, and over the northeast
conus and mid atlantic states on Monday. This will act to reinforce
the weak upper trough currently residing over the southeastern
states through the period. In the meantime, an upper ridge
extending northwest up the western high plains from an area of
high pressure over the southern plains will build northward and
then northeastward through the near term.

The light southwesterly surface wind flow over the southern portion
of the forecast area has already brought surface dewpoints back into
the mid to upper 70s, and dewpoints inland areas area expected to
increase overnight into Monday morning in the low to mid 70s.

Regional satellite imagery is showing a distinct band of cloudiness
moving slowly eastward over mississippi with associated
convection and high mid to upper level moisture caught-up in the
westerlies. This band is expected to pass over much of the
forecast area overnight, and so expect high precipitable water
values ranging from 1.8 to 2.3 inches area-wide starting after
midnight.

Current convection is expected to dissipate across the inland areas
tonight, but isolated to scattered showers and a few thunderstorms
will persist along south of wiggins, ms to crestview, fl line
overnight. These showers and thunderstorms will expand northward
early on Monday, especially across the western portions of the
forecast area, becoming numerous across the entire area throughout
the day. High temperatures Monday will be near to slightly cooler
compared to today, ranging from 86 to 90 degrees across the west and
south, with lower 90s northeast zones. 22

Short term Monday night through Wednesday night A break in
the height field aloft is forecast to be aligned from the
appalachians to the northeast gulf into the middle of the week.

West of the weakness, a more pronounced deep layer ridge is
progged to be centered over the red river valley of tx ok which
favors weak mid-level impulses dropping southward into the
southeast us weakness. Deep layer moisture profiles change little
with pwats ranging from 1.75 to as high as 2.25" over the local
area through the short term. At the surface, high pressure over
the southwest atlantic noses westward into the gulf while a weakly
defined surface pressure trof is draped from the southeast us
westward into ms. Very little change heading into mid-week with
respect to probabilities of showers and storms. A typical diurnal
convective pattern with better chances setting up out over the
gulf each night. With the presence of surface pressure trof, weak
upper level impulses embedded in the weakness aloft to aid in
ascent, daytime heating and instability, an increase in areal
convective coverage over the land zones is expected during the day
both Tuesday and Wednesday. The deeper moisture and available
instability lends support for a few stronger storms capable of
producing strong wind gust gusts, frequent lightning, and heavy
rainfall rates.

Away from storms, little change noted in daily highs, ranging
from the lower to mid 90s inland to around 90 near the immediate
coast. Maximum heat indices => 100 to 107 degrees. Overnight lows
in the lower to mid 70s interior to mid to upper 70s beaches. 10

Long term Thursday through Sunday To close out the week, the
mid-level weakness over the southeast is replaced by the base of a
long-wave trof that pivots across the appalachians. The upper trof
then holds in place into the weekend. Due to persistence of deep
moisture in place, forcing from upper level trof atop the area and
mesoscale boundaries would favor the continuation of an unsettled
weather pattern. The result is a modest chance for showers and
thunderstorms being maintained each day. With clouds and rain
chances, daily temperatures are tempered somewhat with highs 88
to 93 interior to upper 80s coast. 10

Marine A light to occasionally moderate southwesterly to westerly
flow is expected to persist throughout the week as a weak surface
high pressure area remains across the northeastern gulf of
mexico. The winds and seas will be higher in scattered to
numerous showers and thunderstorms through much of the week. 22
