Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mobile AL 648 AM CDT Sun Sep 19 2021

NEAR TERM UPDATE /Now Through Monday/. A weak upper level low centered over the ARLATEX region will lift north-northeastward through Sunday evening, becoming centered over western Illinois by midnight. However, the base of the upper shortwave that housed the departing low will remain as far south as the northwest Gulf of Mexico. This shortwave will eventually become broader and weaker through the remainder of the near term as it moves very slowly eastward over the lower Mississippi River region, and a longwave trough digs southeast over the Northern Plains. PWATs will remain from 1.9 to 2.2" through Sunday evening, and then gradually lower from west to east to between 1.7 to 1.9" late Sunday night through Monday afternoon.

The high initial values will result in a 70-80% of showers and thunderstorms again today as we maintain a typical diurnal cycle, followed by isolated to scattered showers and storms Sunday night. The slightly lower atmospheric moisture on Monday will result in slightly lower precipitation chances, with a 40-50% of showers and thunderstorms across the southwest half of the forecast area, and a 60-70% of showers and thunderstorms across the northeast half. Despite the fact that the Flash Flood Watch was allowed to expire this evening, isolated instances of heavy rainfall and nuisance flooding will remain through the near term, especially with any slow moving showers and storms given the saturated soils. A couple storms may have some gusty winds thanks to water loading processes.

Low temperatures tonight remain on track to bottom out in the lower to middle 70's. The same is expected Sunday night. High temperatures in the lower to middle 80s are forecast both today and Monday. However, a few readings in the upper 80s could occur Monday afternoon across south central Alabama. /22 BB/03


AVIATION. 12Z issuance . A mixed bag of ceilings and visbys across the area with mostly MVFR and IFR cigs and visbys. Fully expect IFR cigs to slowly lift throughout the morning with MVFR prevailing throughout most of the day. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop again by mid-day near the coast then move inland throughout the afternoon. IFR visbys will be possible within the strongest of storms during the afternoon. Winds will remain light out of the southeast becoming light and variable overnight. Storms should subside during the early evening hours; however, there should be enough moisture around for another round of lower cigs during the overnight hours tonight. BB/03

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 432 AM CDT Sun Sep 19 2021/

NEAR TERM UPDATE /Now Through Monday/ . A weak upper level low centered over the ARLATEX region will lift north-northeastward through Sunday evening, becoming centered over western Illinois by midnight. However, the base of the upper shortwave that housed the departing low will remain as far south as the northwest Gulf of Mexico. This shortwave will eventually become broader and weaker through the remainder of the near term as it moves very slowly eastward over the lower Mississippi River region, and a longwave trough digs southeast over the Northern Plains. PWATs will remain from 1.9 to 2.2" through Sunday evening, and then gradually lower from west to east to between 1.7 to 1.9" late Sunday night through Monday afternoon.

The high initial values will result in a 70-80% of showers and thunderstorms again today as we maintain a typical diurnal cycle, followed by isolated to scattered showers and storms Sunday night. The slightly lower atmospheric moisture on Monday will result in slightly lower precipitation chances, with a 40-50% of showers and thunderstorms across the southwest half of the forecast area, and a 60-70% of showers and thunderstorms across the northeast half. Despite the fact that the Flash Flood Watch was allowed to expire this evening, isolated instances of heavy rainfall and nuisance flooding will remain through the near term, especially with any slow moving showers and storms given the saturated soils. A couple storms may have some gusty winds thanks to water loading processes.

Low temperatures tonight remain on track to bottom out in the lower to middle 70's. The same is expected Sunday night. High temperatures in the lower to middle 80s are forecast both today and Monday. However, a few readings in the upper 80s could occur Monday afternoon across south central Alabama. /22 BB/03

SHORT TERM /Monday night Through Tuesday night/ . An upper trough will move from the northern plains into the Ohio Valley by Tuesday night. An associated sfc cold front will will advance into the southeast ahead of the upper trough Tuesday into Tuesday night. The airmass over the area will remain very moist with precipitable water values around 2 inches. The combination of deep layer moisture, daytime heating and the approaching front will bring scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms to the area on Tuesday continuing into Tuesday night as the cold front begins to move across the area. Highs on Tuesday will be in the mid 80s with lows on Tuesday night dependent on where the front is located, with mid/upper 60s across far northwest areas to low to mid 70s along the coast. /13

EXTENDED TERM /Wednesday Through Saturday/ . An upper level shortwave trough moving over the Mississippi River continues to move east, leaving a mean upper trough over the eastern Conus in its wake. Several shortwave systems move through the mean upper trough through the Extended, eventually shifting the northern end of the mean trough east, but leaving the southern end over the Southeast. A cold front moves south across the southeast Wednesday through Wednesday night in response to the first passing upper trough, with surface high pressure settling over the eastern Conus for the latter half of the week into the weekend. The ECMWF is advertising a deeper upper trough passing, leading to a stronger cold front and a bit cooler forecast through the Extended. Guidance does agree in any precipitation moving south of the coast late Wednesday/Wednesday evening. So, for the forecast, have showers and thunderstorms in the forecast for Wednesday, shifting south of the coast Wednesday night. Have blended the GFS/ECWMF numbers, with temperatures below seasonal norms expected Wednesday into Thursday, then moderating to around seasonal by Saturday. Low 50s to low 60s Wednesday and Thursday nights rise to the upper 50s to mid 60s by Saturday night. High temperatures in the mid 70s to low 80s Wednesday and Thursday rise to the low to mid 80s by Saturday. /16

MARINE . A light easterly flow tonight into Sunday morning will shift to a light to moderate southerly flow through Monday, and then westerly on Tuesday. Shower and thunderstorm chances and seas 1 to 2 feet will remain possible through Tuesday night. A cold front is expected late Tuesday night, brining increasing offshore winds and building seas through midweek. Current guidance continues to suggest that the end of the work week may have to be watched for a potential small craft advisory. BB/03
