PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 336 PM CST Wed Mar 3 2021/

NEAR TERM UPDATE /Now Through Thursday/ . A shortwave trof near the coast of the Carolinas continues well off into the western Atlantic today leaving a zonal flow pattern over the forecast area. An upper low near the Baja area/California gradually advances into the southern/central Plains through Thursday while a longwave trof evolves over the easternmost portion of the CONUS. A surface ridge centered over the northwestern Gulf coast states advances eastward slightly during the period, and this pattern overall maintains a dry, deep layer northerly flow over the forecast area with no rain expected through the period. Clear skies are expected areawide by early this evening, with clear to mostly clear skies continuing through Thursday. Lows tonight range from the mid to upper 30s inland to the mid 40s at the immediate coast. Highs on Thursday will be in the upper 60s to lower 70s. A low risk of rip currents is expected through the period. /29

SHORT TERM /Thursday night Through Saturday night/ . Northwest flow shifts westerly with the approach of a weakening positively tilted upper level trough Thursday night into Friday night. After this northwest flow resumes over the region for Saturday into Saturday night as upper level ridging begins to build in. At the surface, low pressure dives southeast across Texas into the northern Gulf Friday, with weak troughing extending east from there across the southern gulf coast states. A new area of low pressure develops Friday night into Saturday morning over the northeastern Gulf of Mexico, promoting some overrunning moisture into the southern half of the CWA. This will promote some isolated to scattered rain showers Friday night into Saturday morning, with best chances confined mainly to southeastern MS, southwestern AL, and the FL panhandle. Rain moves out quickly Saturday morning, with skies beginning to thin out to few to scattered clouds by Saturday afternoon. Temperatures overall feature cooler weather with lows in the lower to middle 40's Thursday and Friday night, becoming a tick cooler with renewed cold air advection as high pressure moves in Saturday night into Sunday. Saturday night will feature lows in the upper 30's to lower 40's. High temperatures Friday will be in the upper 60's to near 70 degrees, trending down Saturday in the lower to middle 60's for most locations. MM/25

EXTENDED TERM /Sunday Through Wednesday/ . After all of the uncertainty last week, this upcoming forecast period appears it will likely be , a) relatively more predictable and b)seemingly non- eventful with very little to no impacts (and by far, more sun than clouds). Given that, let's start out with forecast maximum and minimum temperatures. Forecast highs will range in the 60s(F) Sunday, mid 60s(F) to around 70(F) Monday and solidly in the 70s(F) both Tuesday in the Wednesday. Forecast lows will range 35-45(F) Monday, in the 40s(F) Tuesday and mainly in the 50s(F) Wednesday. Synoptically, the period begins with a departing deeply-reflected upstream trough along the Eastern Seaboard. Sprawling surface high pressure builds through midday Monday and the mid- and upper flow becomes weak and mainly zonal (with minor small amplitude waves superposed) between the aforementioned departing ridge and a new digging PAC NW upstream trough. A southerly return flow develops by late Tuesday as the surface high begins to only gradually shift east and very also very slowly weaken. Once the PAC NW wave energy traverses the central and southern Rockies, weak lee-side cyclogenesis occurs more over the central to northern Plains this time and the surface cyclone moves well north. The far southwestern periphery of the very same surface ridge discussed at the beginning of the period, albeit weaker, aids in the maintenance of a southeasterly return flow through period's end. An apparent decaying rainband approaches the AL/MS border region by midday Wednesday. Just assessing the low level wind flow pattern, it would appear dense sea fog (near the coast) and perhaps some radiational fog inland could form both Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. Otherwise, a very quiet period. /23 JMM

MARINE . A primarily light to moderate northerly flow is expected for tonight through Thursday night which then becomes easterly on Friday. A moderate to strong northeasterly flow develops Friday night and prevails through Sunday, then becomes easterly and subsides somewhat on Monday. A Small Craft Advisory may become necessary over the open Gulf waters from late Friday night through Monday morning. /29
