GMZ600 Synopsis For Pascagoula Ms To Okaloosa Walton County Line Fl Out 60 Nm Including Major Area Bays And Sounds- 1140 Am Cst Sat Feb 27 2021
Synopsis..A light to moderate onshore flow will persist through most of the forecast period as a frontal boundary lingers well to the north of the marine area over the interior southeast states and high pressure ridges west across the gulf. The warm, southerly flow over the relatively cool near shore waters will result in periodic areas of fog, dense at times, over the near shore gulf waters and all areas bays and sounds through the weekend. Seas increase slightly late in the weekend and into the early part of next week due to the persistent onshore flow.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mobile AL 1241 PM CST Sat Feb 27 2021

NEAR TERM /Now Through Sunday/. A digging upper trough over the western Conus and upper ridge stretching north along the east Coast from high pressure over the Caribbean will bring southwest to northeast zonal flow to the Southeast through the Near Term. A semi- stationary cold front stretched northeast from the Southern Plains across the Tennessee River Valley. A low level ridge stretched west over the northern Gulf coast, bringing general southerly flow to the Southeast.

For the rest of today into this evening, persistent fog along the coast and mostly cloudy skies have limited heating this morning. Have bumped the previous package down over areas, mainly closer to the coast, a few degrees to fit current heating trends. Am still expecting temperatures to top out around 80 over the majority of the forecast area inland from the coast, mid to upper 70s closer. Have also expanded the precip coverage, with more near coastal areas seeing rain at noontime.

Tonight into Sunday, with the persistent southerly flow of warmer Gulf air over cool near shore waters (buoy 42012 reporting 65F at 18z/noontime), advection fog is again expected to spread inland tonight. A dense fog advisory will likely be issued with the coming package for our coast counties and near by. Upper level subsidence and limited radiation cooling from the expected inland fog and stratus development will help to keep temperatures at levels well above seasonal norms. Low temperatures in the low to mid 60s expected.

Sunday, the forecast area will see another day of well above seasonal norms due to the persistent upper ridge. Areas closer to the coast will see more limited heating due to expected persistent advection fog. With a very moist airmass in place, isolated to low end scattered rain showers and thunderstorms are possible. Best coverage of precipitation is expected to be over northwestern portions of the forecast area, closer to a stream of shortwave energy passing north of the forecast area along with a soupier airmass over the Lower Mississippi River Valley. Temperatures are expected to top out around 80 well inland, upper 70s closer to the coast. /16

AVIATION. 18Z issuance . Conditions across the forecast area at 17z ranged from MVFR north of I-10 to MVFR to LIFR south (due to persistent fog/low CIGs). Am expecting IFR/LIFR conditions to affect areas near the coast/large coastal bays through tonight into Sunday. North of I- 1, am expecting fog to expand inland this evening, with low end MVFR to LIFR conditions affecting most of the forecast area soon after 06z. Sunday daytime will bring increasing CIGs/VISBYs after sunrise, with inland areas seeing rising conditions first and more persistent conditions closer to the coast. Southeast to south winds expected through the forecast, with 5 to 10 knots during the day, around 5 knots overnight into Sunday. /16

MOB WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. AL . None. FL . None. MS . None. GM . Dense Fog Advisory until 6 PM CST this evening for GMZ630>636- 650-655.

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.
