Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mobile AL 521 AM CST Thu Feb 27 2020

AVIATION. 12Z issuance . Scattered to broken mid-level clouds this morning gradually dissipate and move off to the east, leaving mostly clear skies for most through the period. Winds remain generally light and out of the northwest. /49

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 356 AM CST Thu Feb 27 2020/

NEAR TERM UPDATE /Now Through Friday/ . Most of the ongoing mid- level clouds this morning, associated with a passing upper trough, should dissipate and move off to the east with the trough axis by later this morning/afternoon. Near zonal mid/upper level flow follows across our area today before transitioning to weak and broad troughing as another shortwave drops down from the upper Plains states to the Tennessee Valley region by tonight. This pattern may bring back some occasional mid-level clouds throughout the period, especially over the northern half of the forecast area, but with dry northwesterly low/mid level flow around the eastern periphery of surface high pressure centered over coastal Texas, no precipitation is expected. Highs today reach the lower 50s north of Highway 84 and mid 50s south toward the coast. Lows tonight still expected to be somewhat cold, ranging from lower 30s over most of the interior, but mid 30s southward toward the I-10 corridor and upper 30s at the coast. This dry pattern continues right into Friday, but with temperatures seeing a gradual warming trend. Expect sunny skies and high temps in the low 60s. (12/49)

SHORT TERM /Friday night Through Saturday night/ . The 1028mb surface high pressure area centered over the northwest Gulf of Mexico will shift eastward across the northern gulf and deep south through the short term. A weak surface trough northeast of the surface high extending along the eastern seaboard and then southwest to southern Mississippi will move quickly toward the southeast Friday evening, allowing an associated weak surface boundary to slip through the forecast area. Meanwhile, the large upper level trough over the eastern conus will move eastward over the western Atlantic by Saturday evening, followed by a weak upper ridge building over the region Saturday night. Large scale subsidence in the wake of the upper trough will keep dry conditions and clear across the area through the short term, with perhaps a few high clouds moving in from the west Saturday night. A light west to northwest wind flow Friday night and Saturday, will shift to a light southerly flow Saturday night. High temperatures Friday and Saturday will be in the low to mid 60s. Lows both Friday and Saturday nights will be in the mid 30s to lower 40s, with mid 40s at the coast. /22

EXTENDED TERM /Sunday Through Wednesday/ . The ridge aloft that built into the region over the weekend will slide east through the day on Sunday ahead of an approaching trough. Ridging aloft will allow the dry forecast to persist through the end of the weekend. The dry forecast does not last long, unfortunately. Rain chances are on the rise by early next week as southerly flow sets up ahead of an approaching shortwave trough. The best chance for rain showers on Monday is generally confined to the areas north and west of I-65, although we are not expecting much in the way of measurable rainfall on Monday. By late Tuesday into Wednesday, a shortwave trough will quickly eject to the northeast out of the Southern Plains. Large scale ascent ahead of the trough will lead to measurable rain spreading into the region. Some of the models continue to show a more robust shortwave and are still indicating that the low level jet will strengthen as it moves over the region on Wednesday. For now, given the low level jet strength and increasing instability, we kept the mention of thunder in the grids in the Tuesday night through Wednesday timeframe. All eyes are currently on the local rivers given the ongoing flooding in many spots and additional heavy rainfall by mid-week could exacerbate flooding along those rivers. This next event is a week away, so details will change, but we will continue to closely monitor the progress of this system over the next several days. 07/mb

MARINE . Moderate to strong northwest flow gradually diminishes throughout the day today. Small Craft Advisories remain in effect until Noon CST for southern Mobile Bay, the Mississippi Sound, and unprotected Gulf waters out 60 nm. Light to occasionally moderate northwest winds are then expected tonight into Friday morning before strengthening once again late Friday afternoon. Another Small Craft Advisory may be needed for unprotected Gulf waters Friday night into Saturday morning. Winds diminish again Saturday and shift to southerly by Sunday as high pressure builds east of the area. Moderate onshore flow then prevails Sunday into early next week, with winds potentially returning to advisory levels by the Tuesday/Wednesday timeframe. /49

MOB WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. AL . None. FL . None. MS . None. GM . Small Craft Advisory until noon CST today for GMZ631-632-650-655- 670-675.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
