Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Mobile AL 121 PM CDT Tue Mar 31 2020

NEAR TERM /Now Through Wednesday/. A large area of strong to severe thunderstorms located over the lower part of the forecast area generally south of a line from south Mobile Bay to Crestview Fl will continue to shift south and east through mid to late this afternoon then move east of the area by early this evening. This area of convection is associated with a potent short wave trough tracking east over the northern Gulf states earlier this morning and this afternoon progged to exit to the east over GA and the Carolinas by early this evening. Near the surface a broad area of low pressure located on the base of the trough will also track east of the region by mid to late afternoon with a trailing cold front stretching to the southwest from the low center, moving south across lower MS and AL by mid to late this afternoon, also. With this pattern both the best instability and vertical shear will continue to shift towards the NWFL coast through mid afternoon then slowly shift offshore through early this evening. By late tonight into Wed the main short wave trough will move off the eastern seaboard followed by a sharp ridge moving from east TX to the lower MS River Valley mostly during the day on Wed. Skies will begin to clear this evening generally from west to east leading to mostly clear skies overnight and early Wed morning followed by plenty of sunshine during the day. Expect gusty west to northwest winds ahead and in the wake of the cold front late this afternoon and early this evening slowly diminishing overnight through mid morning Wed. As a result the Wind Advisory that is in effect for the lower half of the forecast area will expire by 7 pm CDT this evening.

Temperatures are expected to return to near seasonal levels tonight and during the day on Wed with lows ranging from the middle to upper 40s for most inland locations and the lower to middle 50s along the immediate coast. Highs Wed will range from the lower to middle 70s for all locations. 32/ee

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.
