Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Mobile AL 543 AM CST Sun Jan 19 2020

DISCUSSION. See updated information for land areas and aviation discussion below.

UPDATE. The forecast remains on track early this morning. Latest radar shows most of the shower activity has progressed to the east. Some light showers continue over the marine areas, but this is expected to dissipate/move out of the area within a couple hours. Winds have picked up behind the front as well, with wind gusts between 20 and 25 knots in the Mobile area in the last hour or so. Did adjust sky cover slightly since the clouds seem to be slower in progressing to the southeast according to satellite imagery. Other than this, no other changes were needed at this time. /26

AVIATION. 12Z issuance . A cold front is currently moving through the area. This feature brought light showers to the TAF sites earlier this morning; but, the radar indicates that most of the shower activity has moved on to the east, with a few light showers currently over our marine areas. All shower activity is expected to end for our area in the next couple of hours. Low-end MVFR CIGs were reported at the TAF sites at issuance; however, this is expected to lift quickly this morning to VFR as drier, colder air is filtered in from the north behind the front. Clouds will decrease from northwest to southeast through the day as well, with clear skies expected by late afternoon/early evening. Lastly, strong winds will be a concern today, with sustained north winds generally between 10 and 20 knots through the day and for most of tonight. Winds gusts between 20 and 25 knots are also expected, with locally higher gusts to 30 knots possible. /26

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 323 AM CST Sun Jan 19 2020/

DISCUSSION . Updated for latest marine discussion below.

MARINE . Due to persistent moderate to strong northerly winds expected through early afternoon Tuesday, the Small Craft Advisory has been extended and is now in effect from 3 AM this morning until 12 PM Tuesday for southern Mobile Bay, Mississippi Sound, and the coastal waters. /26

PREV DISCUSSION . /issued 249 AM CST Sun Jan 19 2020/

NEAR TERM /Now Through Sunday night/ . Upper level zonal flow continues over the northern Gulf coast early this morning as a northern stream trough progresses over the Great Lakes and upper Ohio Valley regions. This feature will then move over the northeastern CONUS by Monday morning, with generally zonal flow maintaining its hold over our area. At the surface, a cold front is currently progressing over our area, and radar shows light showers out ahead of it.

No lightning has been reported in the last 30 minutes or so; therefore, the threat of thunder has diminished. Expecting shower activity to end for our area by mid-morning as well. Furthermore, winds will begin to increase to be between 10 and 15 knots this morning, with higher winds near the coast. Sky cover will also begin to decrease from northwest to southeast during the day today. By this evening, skies are expected to be clear as surface high pressure builds into the southeastern CONUS from the west. Dry weather will then comprise the rest of the near term period.

Dry weather is expected into tomorrow; however, it will be much colder than we've seen recently. In fact, temperatures will be below normal for this time of year after being well above normal for a stretch. Highs today are only likely to reach the lower to mid 50s. By late tonight into early tomorrow morning, low temperatures will then drop into the upper 20s further inland and into the lower 30s near the coast.

Lastly, a HIGH risk of rip currents is in effect through this afternoon. /26

SHORT TERM /Monday Through Tuesday night/ . An upper trof pattern over the eastern states moves off into the western Atlantic Tuesday night followed by an upper ridge building from the central states into the eastern states. A deep layer dry northerly flow prevails as a large surface ridge builds into the eastern states with cool/cold conditions expected for the forecast area. Highs on Monday and Tuesday range from the mid 40s inland to near 50 close to the coast, values which are about 10 degrees below normal. Lows Monday night range from the mid 20s inland to near 30 close to the coast followed by similar temperatures for Tuesday night. A low risk of rip currents is expected through the period. /29

LONG TERM /Wednesday Through Saturday/ . The upper ridge over the eastern states moves off into the western Atlantic through Thursday as an amplifying upper trof advances from the northwest states into the central states. There continues to be uncertainty with this next system, but current indications are that an upper low evolves over the central Plains within the upper trof pattern Thursday night and then moves off towards the Great Lakes through Saturday. An associated surface low moves from the southern Plains towards the New England area during the period, but depending on how the upper pattern plays out, this system will bring a cold front will move through the forecast area as early as Thursday night or as late as Friday night. Dry conditions continue through Wednesday followed by slight chance to chance pops returning to much of the area on Thursday. Likely pops follow for Friday then mostly dry conditions are expected for Saturday. Instability continues to look rather limited ahead of/along the cold front but have opted to keep mention of a slight chance of thunder for Thursday night into Friday and will continue to monitor. /29

MARINE . Northerly flow has developed as a cold front continues to progress over the area late tonight/early this morning. The front is expected to continue eastward and be to our east by mid-morning, however. Offshore flow will become moderate to strong this morning and persist into Tuesday. A Small Craft Advisory remains in effect from 3 AM this morning until 12 PM Monday for the increased northerly winds over the coastal waters, as well as the Mississippi Sound and Mobile Bay. Although, this may need to be extended into Tuesday. Northerly winds and seas will slowly start to diminish Tuesday, then become easterly by early Wednesday morning. Moderate easterly flow is expected through late week, but winds will shift to be from the southeast and begin to increase early Friday as another cold front approaches from the west. /26

MOB WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. AL . High Rip Current Risk through this afternoon for ALZ265-266.

FL . High Rip Current Risk through this afternoon for FLZ202-204-206.

MS . None. GM . Small Craft Advisory until noon CST Tuesday for GMZ631-632-650- 655-670-675.

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.
