New AVIATION, NEAR TERM

AVIATION
(18Z TAFS)
Issued at 1225 PM CDT Fri Apr 12 2024

VFR conditions will continue through Saturday morning.
Northwesterly winds will generally average between 7-13 knots with some gusts up to 20 kt over most of the region this afternoon before becoming light and variable by early this evening. /21

NEAR TERM
(Now through Saturday)
Issued at 1225 PM CDT Fri Apr 12 2024

An upper level ridge of high pressure will gradually build eastward through the weekend as surface high pressure currently centered over the Arklatex moves eastward to a position over the north-central Gulf Coast on Saturday. Dry northwesterly low level flow will keep humidity values low through the weekend. Dry conditions under clear skies can also be expected through the near term forecast period with high temperatures in the lower to middle 70s today, warming into the upper 70s to around 80 degrees on Saturday. Low temperatures tonight should be cool with the dry air mass in place and favorable radiational cooling conditions expected. Lows should drop into the middle 40s in interior southeast Mississippi and southwest Alabama, to the lower 50s along the coast.

A high risk for life threatening rip currents will continue today along the Florida beaches, lowering to a moderate risk tonight and low risk on Saturday. There will remain a moderate risk for rip currents at the Alabama beaches today, lowering to low risk for tonight and Saturday. /JLH

SHORT AND EXTENDED TERM...
(Monday through Thursday)
Issued at 351 AM CDT Fri Apr 12 2024

Upper level high pressure will remain anchored over the Gulf Coast states through the weekend into early next week as surface high pressure shifts to a position off of the Southeast U.S. coast by Monday. A potent upper level trough will eject northeast from the Southern Plains across the Mid South by Wednesday. This trough should remain far enough to our north as not to impact the sensible weather over our area. The upper ridge will temporarily weaken in response to the trough to the northwest, but should restrengthen by Thursday.

This will result in dry weather conditions through the period along with warmer temperatures. Highs should reach into the lower to middle 80s each day through Wednesday and even warmer on Thursday with highs in the middle to upper 80s. Low temperatures and humidity levels will also be on the rise into next week as return southerly flow around the surface high to our east advects a warmer and moister air mass northward. This should result in low temperatures rising into the upper 50s to middle 60s. In addition, with the increasing low level moisture and weak isentropic ascent should support the return of overnight low stratus beginning Tuesday night and continuing through the remainder of the extended forecast period. These clouds should erode out by mid morning each day for the middle to end of next week. /JLH
