Aviation
00z issuance... Showers and storms over portions of southeast
mississippi, southwestern alabama and the western florida
panhandle will continue to slowly advance southward this evening.

MVFR conditions are expected with the convection while otherwise
vfr conditions prevail overnight. Additional showers and storms
redevelop over the area on Saturday, with MVFR conditions expected
with the convection. Winds become light and variable this evening
then become southwesterly around 5 knots on Saturday. 29

Prev discussion issued 357 pm cdt Fri jul 19 2019
near term now through Saturday ... The mid to upper level high
that has dominated the forecast will begin to break down and build
north as a weak trough off the coast of the southeastern us moves
west. At the surface weak high pressure centered over the western
atlantic will nose over the eastern gulf. Low level southwesterly
winds will continue to advect moisture over the area.

High res model guidance indicates that the scattered strong
thunderstorms will slowly diminish this evening with the loss of
diurnal heating. Some storms could persist till around midnight over
our northeastern counties. By the morning, some storms could be
ongoing along the coast as the sea breeze begins to march inland.

Given the influences of the weak upper trough and a convectively
favorable environment with ml CAPE values approaching 1500 to 2000
j kg, storms should expand inland with any new or remaining outflow
boundaries being the primary lifting mechanism. A few storms could
be strong; however, there should be enough influence from the upper
ridge to keep most of the storms below severe criteria.

Low temperatures should remain mild as dewpoints will remain in the
mid 70s inland to upper 70s along the coast. Even with the potential
for convection tomorrow, highs should climb into the upper 80s to
low 90s especially inland. With dewpoints in the mid to upper 70s,
heat indices could approach 100 in locations where convection holds
off till peak heating. 03 bb
short term Saturday night through Monday night ... An upper ridge
will remain in place from the central plains into the western
atlantic. On the southern periphery of this ridge, an inverted
trof will move westward across the area through the weekend. This
will result in more convection each day with scattered to locally
numerous coverages. The convection will become most numerous
during the afternoon hours, lingering into the evening each day.

The storms will move slowly in a weakly sheared environment. This
slow movement combined with a very moist environment will lead to
locally heavy rain in any stronger storms. 13
long term Tuesday through Friday ... A digging upper trof over
the eastern portion of the country during the long term period
will bring a cold front down into the southeastern states late
Monday night into Tuesday. This, combined with the continued very
moist and unstable airmass will lead to a continued unsettled
weather pattern over the area through the long term period. Good
chance to likely pops expected each day with afternoon and evening
showers and thunderstorms. With the frontal boundary in the area,
some lingering convection will likely persist well into each
overnight during the period. With clouds and precipitation,
daytime highs by the latter end of the medium range look to mostly
range in the mid to upper 80s. 13
marine... Broad high pressure over the northeastern gulf will begin
to breakdown this weekend as a weak trough of low pressure drifts
west over the central gulf. Winds will remain out of the southwest
and rain chances will increase with the building trough through the
weekend. Seas will remain around 1 foot given the light onshore
flow. By early next week, high pressure will weaken as a weak cold
front moves in and stalls over the marine zones late Tuesday. Expect
increased rain chances through the beginning of next week. Seas
could build to 1 to 2 feet by midweek. Bb 03
