Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mobile AL 348 PM CDT Fri Aug 7 2020

NEAR TERM UPDATE /Now Through Saturday/. An upper trof over the eastern states shifts slowly eastward and weakens while an upper level weakness lingers over the north central Gulf coast region. The upper level weakness is located between an upper ridge over the south central states and another upper ridge extending from the western Atlantic into the eastern Gulf. A modest surface trof currently extends from near extreme southeast Louisiana and across the forecast area into central Georgia. This feature will meander over the southern and interior portions of the forecast area through Saturday as a surface ridge strengthens slightly over the northern Gulf and another surface ridge persists over the interior eastern states. The eastern states upper trof and the upper level weakness have together promoted a weak northerly deep layer flow over interior areas while a likewise weak deep layer southerly flow tends to be in place over the southern portion of the area. This along with the weak surface trof will maintain limited deep layer moisture over interior areas today, with precipitable water values this afternoon of 1.2-1.5 inches north of I-65 while values of 1.5-1.85 inches are expected south of I-65. With the upper trof slowly shifting eastward and weakening through Saturday while the upper level weakness lingers over the north central Gulf coast region, this allows for a gradual improvement in precipitable water values north of I-65 to 1.4-1.6 inches while similar precipitable water values of 1.6-1.8 inches continue south of I-65. With the weak surface trof over the area along with some support from a weak sea breeze, will continue with slight chance pops roughly along and south of I-65 this afternoon then for Saturday have gone with slight chance pops for most of the area with the overall improving deep layer moisture. Have also updated the forecast for today for some minor adjustments to winds and to make a small expansion to the slight chance pops near the coast for the rest of this morning. Highs this afternoon will be in the lower to mid 90s with similar highs for Saturday, although a few inland spots may reach the upper 90s. Lows tonight range from the lower 70s inland to the mid/upper 70s at the coast. Surface dewpoints trend a few degrees higher today into Saturday which will result in afternoon heat index values on Saturday of 101-105. A low risk of rip currents continues through the period. /29

SHORT TERM /Saturday night Through Monday night/. The upper level trough over the Southeast shifts slowly east to along the Eastern Seaboard as upper level high pressure centered over the Southern Plains builds east. A weakly organized low level ridge stretching west over the northern Gulf of Mexico becomes a bit better organized, with deep layer south to southwesterly flow over the Southeast increasing moisture levels through the Short Term, to 1.9" to 2.2" by Monday. Upper level subsidence increases as the upper ridge builds east over the Southeast, but with the deep layer moisture also building, PoPs increase to above seasonal norms for the period. Am expecting the usual diurnal shifting in the forecast, with a seabreeze developing and moving inland during the day, initiating scattered thunderstorms during the hottest, most unstable portion of the day. The convection will decrease in coverage and strength during the evening with the loss of the day's heating. Convection will then shift offshore overnight over the more unstable airmass over Gulf waters, with a land breeze developing and moving cooler air from the land over the Gulf. Some of the thunderstorms during the afternoon could become strong to marginally severe, with MLCapes rising into the 2000 J/kg to 2500 J/kg range, with DCapes in the 900-1000J/kg range during the afternoon. Soundings show dry layers in the mid and upper levels, adding to the risk of damaging downburst winds.

Temperatures above seasonal norms are expected through the Short Term. High temperatures in the mid to upper 90s over inland areas, around 90 closer to the coast are expected. Heat Indices generally rising into the 101-106 degree range are expected each day. Low temperatures in the low to mid 70s inland, upper 70s along the coast area expected.

With generally light and diurnally variable low level flow over the northern Gulf helping to bring lower height swells to area beaches, a low risk of rip currents is expected. /16

EXTENDED TERM /Tuesday Through Friday/. Tuesday through Wednesday, an upper level trough re-develops over the Southeast, keeping PoPs above seasonal. An upper ridge over the western Atlantic builds west over the Southeast Thursday into the weekend, shifting the upper trough over the Southeast west to over the Lower Mississippi River Valley. Rain chances will remain at above seasonal norms into mid week, then see a downward trend into the weekend as the ridge builds west. Temperatures closer to seasonal norms are expected Tuesday and Wednesday, but then increase into the weekend. /16

MARINE. Little change through the period as light winds and small seas continue. The only marine impacts expected will be locally higher winds, waves, and seas near isolated to scattered showers and storms. /29

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.
