Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Mobile AL 514 PM CST Sat Jan 25 2020

DISCUSSION. Updated for latest aviation discussion below.

AVIATION. 00Z issuance . VFR conditions continue over the area through mid Sunday morning, then ceilings lower to IFR over the western half of the area through Sunday afternoon and lower to MVFR over the eastern half of the area. Patches of rain will develop first over southeast Mississippi and extreme southwest Alabama early Sunday morning, then increase in coverage while spreading over the remainder of the area through Sunday afternoon. Light and variable winds are expected through Sunday morning, followed by a southeasterly wind near 5 knots developing in the afternoon. /29

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 320 PM CST Sat Jan 25 2020/

NEAR TERM /Now Through Sunday/ . A weak mid level shortwave over the plains states early this evening will be moving into the southeast states late tonight through Sunday. This will be pushing the surface high pressure that has been centered over the area off to the east tonight and Sunday while a surface trough develops to our west with a weak low along the trough over the west- central Gulf of Mexico by late Sunday afternoon.

Tonight, as the shortwave approaches the region, mid/upper level cloud cover increases, with light rain- showers beginning to approach the western border of the forecast area by around Sunrise Sunday. With the surface high that has been over our area drifting east, and with increasing mid/upper level cloud cover tonight, overnight radiational cooling will be somewhat hindered compared to last few nights. Lows tonight will be closer to normal for this time of the year, likely range from the upper 30s over interior locations to the mid and upper 40s along the coast (and a few lower 50s along barrier islands and beaches).

On Sunday, as the mid level short wave crosses over the area and with the weak surface low over the Gulf well to our southwest, a chance for rain returns to the local forecast. With very limited moisture out ahead of the system, and with models showing very little if any instability, mainly only light showers are expected, although a few rumbles of thunder can't be ruled out out over the Gulf waters. Rainfall totals are expected to be low, less than a quarter of an inch, but global models indicate coverage should be widespread enough to warrant good chance to likely PoPs across portions of the area on Sunday (especially western and coastal areas) and will maintain this from previous forecast. It should be noted however that many of the Hires models are less aggressive with rainfall coverage on Sunday, so some adjustments could be made on later forecast updates. Daytime highs on Sunday will be similar to those of Saturday (but perhaps slightly cooler in a few locations), ranging from the mid 50s over interior northwest zones to the upper 50s southern zones. /12

SHORT TERM /Sunday night Through Tuesday night/ . Low pressure will continue to move east across the northeast Gulf of Mexico Sunday night with continued light rain showers likely. Any rain should shift east by Monday as the surface low pulls away and high pressure builds back in from the north. Dry weather and seasonable temperatures can be expected through Tuesday.

Another shortwave aloft will dig southeast across the Southern Plains and into the Lower Mississippi Valley by Tuesday night. Surface low pressure will develop along a baroclinic zone to our southwest. This low pressure will move southeast along the baroclinic zone into the northern Gulf of Mexico, to a position off of the Louisiana coast by late Tuesday night. Moisture will advect northward over the front in advance of the low pressure system. Rain showers should develop within the zone of enhanced ascent Tuesday evening over the Gulf waters and spread inland overnight. The near surface layer should remain quite stable and the potential for thunder is too low to mention in the current forecast. /JLH

LONG TERM /Wednesday Through Saturday/ . Northwesterly flow aloft will remain in place across the forecast area through the end of the week into next weekend. Another stronger upper level trough will dig southeast across the Southern Plains with another surface low developing over the northwest Gulf of Mexico late in the week. The upper air pattern should suppress any meaningful warm sector south of the north central Gulf Coast through the forecast period. This will keep our forecast area positioned within the cool and stable low level airmass as the surface low again passes to our south. Expect increased rain chances beginning again Thursday night and persisting through next Saturday. Temperatures will remain near or slightly below normal through the extended forecast period. /JLH

MARINE . A light to at times moderate offshore flow tonight will transition to a moderate east to southeast Sunday into Sunday night as a weakly organized surface low moves east across the central Gulf of Mexico. Light to moderate offshore flow then follows from early Monday morning and lasting into mid week. Another surface low pressure area is expected to pass south of the coastal waters Wednesday into Wednesday evening, This will bring moderate to at times strong northeast to east flow, mainly to the open Gulf waters through Thursday, possibly persisting into late week. Seas mainly 2 feet or less through sunday night, but increasing to 2 to 4 feet by mid week and possibly up to 4 to 6 feet by late week with the slightly stronger and more persistent flow expected. /12

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
