VFR conditions will generally prevail across the region through the next 24 hours.

NEAR TERM...
(Now through Friday Night)
Issued at 450 AM CDT Thu Jun 20 2024

Very little change to the overall pattern as our forecast area remains located in between Tropical Storm Alberto making landfall in northeast Mexico and a large, elongated upper ridge extending from the western Atlantic to west Texas. As the remnants of Alberto moves westward across Mexico, the upper ridge will slowly sag southward through the near term. Rain chances across the southern half of our forecast area will be higher today compared to yesterday as we anticipate mainly scattered showers along with a slight chance of thunderstorms this afternoon through mid- evening as another plume of increased moisture spreads from east to west. Dry conditions will resume from mid-evening through Friday night, with the exception of a few showers and possibly a thunderstorm across portions of the western Florida Panhandle Friday afternoon into early evening.

Generally kept temperatures trended in line with the NBM, with highs this afternoon around normal ranging from 87 to 92 degrees.
Highs on Friday will be slightly above normal ranging from 90 to 95 degrees. Lows tonight and Friday night will continue to be slightly above normal ranging from 67 to 72 degrees inland areas and from 72 to 77 degrees closer to the coast. Barrier islands should see lows only dropping into the upper 70s.

Coastal hazards: A few reports of wave runup/minor coastal flooding were received yesterday along the west end of Dauphin Island (Bienville Blvd) and near I-10 ramps in northern Mobile Bay around times of high tide courtesy of the persistent easterly flow. With similar high tides again today, have maintained a Coastal Flood Advisory around times of high tide from 8 AM TO 2 PM for Mobile Bay, mainly for the I-10 ramps/Causeway areas and along the west end of Dauphin Island and possibly Shell Belt/Coden Belt Rd areas in far southern Mobile County. Dangerous surf with large breaking waves up to 5-7 feet will continue to impact area beaches through 6 PM this evening. A HIGH rip current risk also continues through Friday night. /22

SHORT TERM...
(Saturday through Saturday night)
Issued at 450 AM CDT Thu Jun 20 2024

An elongated upper level ridge continues to stretch across the southern half of the US on Saturday. While down at the surface, a weakening trough axis is expected to slide underneath the ridge and move northwestward across the Florida Panhandle and into the Southeastern US. A slug of increased moisture is expected to accompany this surface trough which will bring the potential for some isolated to scattered showers and storms to the area on Saturday afternoon. Right now, the better coverage (about 30-40%)
for convection will be over portions of south central Alabama and the Florida Panhandle given their proximity to the surface trough.
Temperatures will be hot outside of any storms given the subsidence aloft. High temperatures will top out in the lower to middle 90s Saturday afternoon with a few spots in southeast Mississippi potentially reaching into the upper 90s given the slightly higher heights and lower rain chances in those areas. It will feel even hotter though with heat index values expected to reach to around 100-106 degrees. Low temperatures Saturday night range from the lower 70s well inland to the upper 70s and around 80 degrees along the coast. The rip current risk becomes moderate at all area beaches on Saturday. /14

LONG TERM...
(Sunday through Wednesday)
Issued at 450 AM CDT Thu Jun 20 2024

Upper level ridging begins to retreat westward on Sunday as a northern stream shortwave sweeps across the Great Lakes region. As we head into early next week, the upper ridging becomes centered over the Desert Southwest with broad upper troughing taking place over the eastern US. This will result in a northwesterly flow pattern aloft over the local area. Deep layer moisture will increase during the period as persistent southwesterly to southerly flow continues to usher in rich, Gulf moisture. This combination of the departing ridge aloft and deep layer moisture and will result in daily chances for showers and storms though the period with coverage likely peaking during the afternoon and evening hours. The lowest PoPs in the period are currently expected on Sunday given that the ridge and its associated subsidence will still have some influence over the local area.
Rain chances will gradually become more scattered to numerous during the early to middle parts of next week as heights fall across the region. Outside of any storms, temperatures will be hot with areas reaching into the 90s each afternoon. These hot temperatures combined with increasing moisture in the boundary layer will result in heat index values approaching Heat Advisory criteria especially on Sunday and Monday. Lows overnight will range from the lower 70s inland to the upper 70s at the beaches.

Issued at 450 AM CDT Thu Jun 20 2024

Hazardous conditions for Small craft will persist today as a moderate to strong easterly flow remains in response to the pressure gradient between Tropical Storm Alberto making landfall in northeast Mexico and a large area of high pressure over the southeast. Seas will range from 5 to 8 feet over the Gulf, occasionally to 10 feet well offshore, with waves near 2 feet in bays and waterways. Winds and seas will gradually diminish tonight into Saturday before winds return to a more southerly to southwesterly flow over the weekend into early next week. /22
