GMZ600 Synopsis For Pascagoula Ms To Okaloosa Walton County Line Fl Out 60 Nm Including Major Area Bays And Sounds- 408 Pm Cdt Wed Oct 16 2019
Synopsis..A light to moderate west to north to northeast flow tonight through Thursday which will create periods of cautionary boating conditions for small craft. Winds will become more east to southeast Thursday night and Friday and begin to increase as an area of low pressure develops in the western gulf and begins to move northeast toward our marine area, creating hazardous boating conditions for small craft. A small craft advisory will likely be required for most of the coastal waters area Friday through Saturday due to winds and seas as the low approaches and then moves across the marine area. A moderate to strong onshore flow will likely continue into the early part of next week, although winds and seas will decrease slightly.

401 pm cdt Wed oct 16 2019

Near term now through Thursday
A diffuse cold front will slowly push off the coast this evening
and stall out across the northern gulf of mexico through Thursday.

Clouds will gradually thin and lift through this evening but the
flow should remain west-southwesterly aloft through the near-term
to the east of an upper level low pressure system over texas. This
will keep mid and high level cloud cover streaming across the
region, especially near the coast.

Dewpoints and temperatures will continue to drop tonight behind
the front, with below normal temperatures continuing through
Thursday. Lows tonight will range from the upper 40s interior to
the upper 50s along the immediate coast. Highs will range from
near 70 across interior areas, to the middle 70s south of
interstate 10. Jlh

Short term Thursday night through Saturday night
Attention through the short-term forecast period will focus on the
potential sub-tropical storm likely to develop across the
southwestern gulf of mexico. A disturbance now organizing within
the bay of campeche will begin to lift northeastward by Thursday
night in response to southwesterly steering flow to the east of an
upper level low pressure system over central texas. The
disturbance will likely become entangled with the upper low and
frontal boundary initially stalled to it's north. There will
likely be a brief period where shear may relax slightly on Friday
before the system interacts with stronger westerlies aligned
along the northern gulf coast ahead of the next approaching upper
trough. This may allow for some gradual strengthening of the
surface low before reaching the northern gulf of mexico and
becoming increasingly sheared. This system is likely to become
increasingly baroclinic in nature before reaching the northern
gulf coast and remain a hybrid type system. The potential for this
system to be truly tropical when reaching the gulf coast appears
low at this time.

The ultimate track, timing, and intensity of the system is also
in question as there remains model differences. The ecens is
further west and weaker with the GEFS to the east and stronger.

This system has yet to form a low level center and there will
likely be shifts in model guidance until this occurs. In addition,
since this system will not likely be completely tropical in
nature, there likely will be wind and rain impacts far from the
center. At this point, we will continue to indicate increasing
rain chances, gusty winds, and potential coastal flooding across
our forecast area from Friday through Saturday night. Impacts
will depend upon the eventual track and intensity. Please continue
to monitor the latest forecast through the end of this week into
the weekend. Jlh

Long term Sunday through Wednesday
The subtropical system will pull off to the northeast late in the
weekend with return southerly flow becoming re-established over
the area by early next week. This should support mainly dry and
slightly lower humidity on Sunday. This should be short-lived
though as low level moisture returns by Monday. A strong upper
level trough will approach from the west by late Monday into
Tuesday preceded by a line of showers and thunderstorms.

Temperatures should warm on Monday ahead of the next cold front to
push across the forecast region next Tuesday. Cool high pressure
will build behind the front for the middle of next week. Jlh

Marine
A light to moderate west to north to northeast flow tonight
through Thursday which will create periods of cautionary boating
conditions for small craft. Winds will become more east to
southeast Thursday night and Friday and begin to increase as an
area of low pressure develops in the western gulf and begins to
move northeast toward our marine area, creating hazardous boating
conditions for small craft. A small craft advisory will likely be
required for most of the coastal waters area Friday through
Saturday due to winds and seas as the low approaches and then
moves across the marine area. A moderate to strong onshore flow
will likely continue into the early part of next week, although
winds and seas will decrease slightly. 12 ds

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.
