Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mobile AL 1157 PM CDT Mon Jul 13 2020

AVIATION (14/06Z Issuance) . Convective activity has dissipated over land areas, with a few isolated showers and thunderstorms continuing well offshore out over the northern Gulf. Coverage over the Gulf could increase toward daybreak Tuesday with some of the activity closer to the coast. During the day on Tuesday expect scattered showers and storms to begin developing over land areas, initially closer to the coast, but spreading inland during the course of the day. A few of these storms on Tuesday could produce strong, erratic wind gusts and brief, local CIGS/VIS (down to IFR in some isolated locations). Outside of convection VFR conditions will prevail through the period, however. Light, mainly southwesterly winds will continue through the period as well. /12

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 1101 PM CDT Mon Jul 13 2020/

NEAR TERM /Now Through Tuesday night/ . Most of the earlier convection has dissipated across the region, with only a few isolated showers left out over the Gulf to the south of the western Florida panhandle. HiRes models indicate that the coverage over the near shore marine waters may increase slightly toward daybreak, but primarily remain over the coastal waters. Otherwise, for the remainder of the night the forecast appears to be on track, with skies generally clearing and low temperatures remainingthe in the 70s.

For Tuesday and Tuesday night, a mid and upper level trof will move off into the western Atlantic in response to mid and upper ridging that will be building over the southeastern states. The axis of this ridge axis will primarily be to the north of our forecast area, with a series of shortwaves expected to move across the area through Tuesday night around the periphery of the ridge. The previous EURO actually shows a weak upper low over our area on Tuesday, embedded within the larger ridge. Weak and variable surface winds are expected across the area as weak surface high pressure prevails, the exception being southwesterly winds developing near the coast during afternoon and early evening hours driven by a weak sea breeze circulation. This pattern will result in increased coverage of showers and storms across the area on Tuesday vs Monday. Much of this activity will likely be focused over the southern half of our forecast area in association with the sea breeze circulation and offshore convection moving inland through mid morning, but by afternoon HiRes models are also indicating at least some scattered convection further inland during the afternoon hours. There will still be some dry air in the mid levels of the atmosphere on Tuesday, especially over the eastern portions of the forecast area, but increasing deeper layer moisture over the western half. With this, there could still be a potential for some strong and gusty winds with a few of the storms. A Heat Advisory will again be in effect on Tuesday, primarily over the southern 1/3 of our forecast area (portions of interior southeast MS, southwest AL and the western FL panhandle) from 10 AM to 7 PM. Expect heat indices in the advised area to reach 108 to 112 degrees in some areas on Tuesday afternoon. Actual high temperatures on Tuesday will be in the low to mid 90s over most of the interior, and around 90 right along the immediate coast. Lows Tuesday night once again in the 70s across the entire area. /12

PREV DISCUSSION . /issued 642 PM CDT Mon Jul 13 2020/

AVIATION (14/00Z Issuance) . Isolated thunderstorms currently drifting south across the coastal counties of Alabama and the western Florida panhandle will gradually diminish in intensity and coverage over the next few hours. By 14/02Z expect most of the activity to have dissipated. Before the storms dissipate, a few could produce strong, erratic wind gusts and locally low CIGS/VIS (down to IFR in some isolated locations). Outside of convection and then through the overnight hours, VFR conditions and light winds are expected to prevail(except for perhaps right along the coast where some MVFR to locally IFR cigs could develop late tonight into early Tuesday morning). /12

PREV DISCUSSION . /issued 309 PM CDT Mon Jul 13 2020/

NEAR TERM UPDATE /Now Through Tuesday/ . An upper trof over the eastern states finally moves off into the western Atlantic through Tuesday. In response, an upper ridge centered along the Mexico/U.S. border into the western Gulf expands eastward across the southeastern states. A series of shortwaves continue to move across the area through the period along the periphery of this upper ridge. Weak and variable surface winds are expected across the area with the exception being southwesterly winds developing near the coast during afternoon and evening hours driven by a weak sea breeze circulation. A light northerly surface flow prevails tonight then again becomes southerly near the coast on Tuesday with daytime heating. Abundant dry air above 750 mb today results in wet bulb zero values near 10-11 kft. Similar values will be present over the eastern portion of the area on Tuesday while further to the west will see improving mid-level moisture. The mid-level dry air, in combination with moderate instability and a moist boundary layer characterized by PWATs around 1.5 to 1.8 inches, could support some wet microburst potential in stronger storms each afternoon. As expected, DCAPE values exceed 1200 J/kg across much of the area today (per latest mesoanalysis) and will do so again on Tuesday. Considering this, cannot rule out the potential for some strong to locally damaging wind gusts with stronger storms. Maintained a slight chance to chance PoP each day given the added support of the aforementioned passing upper shortwaves, with the potential for higher coverage occurring along the weak sea breeze that develops each afternoon.

The Heat Advisory currently in effect for portions of interior southeast Mississippi, extreme southwest Alabama, and the western Florida panhandle continues through this evening. Lows tonight mostly range from the mid 70s inland to the upper 70s at the coast. Highs on Tuesday remain in the mid 90s, and another heat advisory will likely be required for the southern portion of the area. A low risk of rip currents is expected through Tuesday. /29/49

SHORT TERM /Tuesday night Through Thursday night/ . An upper trough over the east coast will lift out as an upper ridge over the plains slowly noses east. However, a small piece of the trough gets left behind and cuts off as a weak upper low over the area on Tuesday night. It will drift southward through Thursday as the upper ridge expands eastward with resultant upper level northerly flow. The end result will be continued hot and humid conditions with scattered showers and thunderstorms each day. Showers and thunderstorms will start near the coast in the morning, developing inland through the day. Coverage will be most numerous during peak heating before decreasing during the evening hours as the boundary layer cools.

Afternoon highs will top out in the mid to low 90s yet again on Wednesday and Thursday. The heat index will generally range from 102-107 across much of the area with a few spots near the coast and in the river delta rising to near 108. Overnight lows continue to sound like a broken record, as usual this time of year, with temperatures only falling into the mid to low 70s inland with upper 70s to near 80 at the beaches on both nights. /13

EXTENDED TERM /Friday Through Monday/ . Northeast to east mid level flow prevails through the extended term period, but becoming more predominately easterly toward the end of the period as a mid level high pressure ridge becomes entrenched across the eastern portion of the country but to the north of our forecast area. Meanwhile, weak high pressure at the sfc will maintain a weak flow pattern. The winds will primarily be diurnally-driven with the daily sea/land breeze cycle and afternoon heating through the period. Daily thunderstorm chances continue to hover around 40-50 percent throughout the period as weak disturbances embedded within the easterly flow aloft pass over the area and act on a moist and moderately unstable boundary layer. The coverage of showers and storms will be focused along the sea breeze near the coast each late morning into early afternoon and then farther inland during the late afternoon and early evening hours. Daytime temperatures will continue to hover in the mid 90s inland and low 90s along the coast, with heat indices remaining in the 100 to 107 degree range. Lows will continue to be in the mid 70s over the interior and in the upper 70s near and along the coast each night. /13

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
