Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mobile AL 1152 PM CDT Wed Apr 1 2020

AVIATION. 06Z issuance . VFR conditions prevail throughout the period. Light winds overnight become northeasterly around 5 to 10 knots Thursday, with the exception being along the coast where winds will shift to southerly briefly during the afternoon and evening as a sea breeze forms and moves inland. Light winds expected again Thursday night, along with increasing high clouds. /49

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 906 PM CDT Wed Apr 1 2020/

NEAR TERM /Now Through Thursday night/. Dry weather continues through Thursday night as surface high pressure dominates the eastern CONUS and a weak upper ridge shifts east over the area. Other than some passing cirrus, expecting mostly clear skies across the region Thursday before a more broken to overcast deck moves in from the west Thursday night. Winds remain light and out of the northeast, with the exception being a brief period of southerly winds right along the coast Thursday afternoon and early evening as a weak sea breeze (yes, it's that season again) forms and pushes inland.

Temperatures dip into the mid 40s inland and upper 40s to low 50s along the coast early Thursday morning. Highs Thursday afternoon trend a few degrees warmer, once again reaching the mid 70s across much of the area. Lows Thursday night likewise trend a few degrees warmer due to the increase in cloud cover, only dipping into the low 50s inland and mid to upper 50s along the coast. /49

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 621 PM CDT Wed Apr 1 2020/

SHORT TERM /Thursday night Through Saturday night/. Weak shortwave ridging aloft will generally build across the north central Gulf Coast region Thursday night through Saturday night. A surface ridge of high pressure will also extend from the Great Lakes and southward across the Tennessee Valley and southeastern U.S. Thursday night and Friday before slowly building toward the east coast into Saturday. A dry surface airmass will remain in place across our forecast area along the surface ridge Friday with surface dewpoints remaining in the 40s to lower 50s. The lack of deep moisture underneath shortwave ridging aloft will support keeping a dry forecast Thursday night into Friday. Layer moisture increases slightly by Saturday ahead of a shortwave trough approaching the Mississippi Valley region. The deeper moisture and ascent will remain confined well to the west of our CWA, but cannot entirely rule out isolated light rain showers over portions of southeast MS and far southwest AL by Saturday afternoon. Low temperatures Thursday night and Friday night are forecast to average in the lower to mid 50s inland and a little warmer in the upper 50s to lower 60s near the immediate coast. Highs Friday and Saturday should warm into the upper 70s to lower 80s around the region. /21

EXTENDED TERM /Sunday Through Wednesday/. Weak shortwave ridging aloft will generally extend northward across our forecast area through early next week. However, a series of upper level impulses rounding the northern periphery of the ridge axis could propagate over our area each day. Surface high pressure meanwhile remains oriented over the eastern states and western Atlantic, allowing for an onshore flow to bring increased low level moisture back into our region through early to mid next week. Moisture through the deep layer remains rather limited on Sunday, but a weak impulse passing near or just south of our area will support keeping at a slight chance of rain showers in the forecast across all but perhaps the far northern zones on Sunday. Deeper moisture/ higher PWATs could overspread our region with a slightly better shortwave trough moving on the northern periphery of the ridge axis Monday, which would bring increased coverage of showers and a few thunderstorms to our area through the day. The axis of moisture may tend to shift a little farther north over our interior zones Tuesday and Wednesday, where additional impulses in the mid level flow could result in scattered showers/storms both days. Coverage may be more limited closer to the coast. Temperatures will continue to increase this weekend and especially into the early to middle part of next week, when lows each morning may only fall into the mid 60s to lower 70s, while highs each day warm back into the 80s. /21

MARINE. A light to moderate north to northeast flow will develop over the marine area late tonight into Thursday morning as a ridge of high pressure builds south into the Gulf. The flow shifts more easterly on Friday morning then southerly by Friday afternoon as the ridge begins to move eastward. A light southeast to southerly flow is generally expected this weekend into early next week as the ridge of high pressure remains positioned to the east of our region. /21

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.
