Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mobile AL 1150 PM CST Mon Nov 30 2020

AVIATION. 01/06Z Issuance . VFR ceiling conditions will be prevalent through Tuesday evening. Skies will be clear across the entire area through the period. Northwesterly winds will will decrease to around 10 knots overnight, but remain a little gusty near the coast, occasionally gusting to 15 to 20 knots. Northwest to north winds continue during the day on Tuesday, but remain generally around 10 knots or less. No restrictions to surface visibility expected. /12

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 1013 PM CST Mon Nov 30 2020/

NEAR TERM /Now Through Wednesday/ . Clear skies, dry air, and cold advection will be supportive of the first widespread freeze of this season tonight and the Freeze Warning continues for all zones through 8 AM Tuesday morning. Lows tonight are still forecast to range from 25-30 across most locations, especially along and north of Interstate 10, and in the lower 30s along the immediate coast. The only places that may stay above freezing are along the barrier islands, where winds remain slightly elevated (10 to 15 mph with occasional higher gusts).

On Tuesday, the deep upper level trough will be over our area will be moving to the east of our area during the course of the day and surface high pressure that is currently located over eastern Texas moving east and being centered more or less over our area by the end of the day on Tuesday. This pattern will allow for deep layer dry air to overspread the region through Tuesday with generally clear skies expected. With the surface high moving over our area, winds will be much lighter across the area on Tuesday. Mid level cold air advection will continue in the northwesterly flow in the wake of the trough moving off to the east of our area, so continued cool on Tuesday with highs remaining well below normal, generally topping out in the low to mid 50s across the entire region.

The surface high pressure, and weak ridging aloft, will continue over the area Tuesday night with mostly clear skies and well below normal low temperatures continuing as well. Temperatures Tuesday night expected to be very similar to Monday night temperatures, so another freeze is expected over most of the area (except again possibly along the barrier islands). Lows in the 25 to 30 degree range along and north of I-10, and in the lower 30s to the south of I-10 (mid 30s barrier islands).

On Wednesday the surface high pressure ridge axis moves off to the east of the area with a weak return flow developing by late in the day, especially over the western half of our forecast area. This will bring gradually increasing moisture to the area, and allow for slightly modified temperatures on Wednesday. Highs will range from the mid and upper 50s over inland areas to the lower 60s closer to and along the coast. By the end of the day on Wednesday, a developing storm system over the plains states will begin to bring an increase in mid and high level clouds from the west to the area as well. At this time it appears that any precipitation associated with this developing system will remain to the west of our area through Wednesday (but will likely move east across the area for most of the Short Term forecast period . Wednesday night through Thursday night. More details on that will be coming with the overnight Forecast Discussion). /12

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.
