Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mobile AL 417 PM CST Fri Jan 28 2022

NEAR TERM UPDATE /Now Through Saturday/. A much colder and drier airmass will continue to move into the area through Saturday in the wake of a strong cold front. Skies will continue to clear through this evening as the upper trough continues to move east. Gusty northwest winds will continue through tonight as the pressure gradient tightens due to strong high pressure building in from the west. As a result, a wind advisory is in effect tonight for coastal areas due to wind speeds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts of 35 to 39 mph. Lows tonight will fall into the low to mid 20s inland to upper 20s to near 30s along the coast. The wind will make it feel even colder, with wind chill values overnight into Saturday morning in the teens and low 20s. Sunny conditions return on Saturday, however with cold air advection continuing, temps will struggle to reach the low to mid 40s in most areas. /13

SHORT TERM /Saturday night Through Monday night/. Northwesterly flow aloft will continue through Monday morning as upper-level troughing over the eastern US continues lifting northeastward. One or two shortwaves will move within the flow, however, with limited deep-layer moisture (PWATs at below 0.5 inches through Monday afternoon) and surface high pressure in control, dry weather is expected to continue. Upper-level flow begins to turn westerly, then southwesterly by Monday evening as weak ridging passes over the region. Meanwhile, an upper-level low pushes across Texas, moves into the western Gulf of Mexico, and starts to weaken by Monday night. At the surface, the aforementioned high pressure moves eastward across the Gulf throughout the day on Sunday. Winds will respond by shifting from northwest on Saturday evening to southwest by Sunday morning. The high will reach the Florida peninsula by Sunday afternoon and will expand northward on Monday. This will allow for surface winds to shift to southerly by Monday afternoon and southeasterly by Monday evening.

With onshore flow returning during the period, temperatures will begin to rebound. Highs on Sunday will be in the low to mid 60s, increasing to mid to upper 60s by Monday. Lows will still be chilly Saturday night, with temperatures dropping into the upper 20s to low 30s, with mid 30s along the coast. Lows will be closer to normal Sunday night, with mid to upper 30s inland and low to mid 40s near the coast. Lows continue to moderate by Monday night, with temperatures only lowering to the mid to upper 40s inland and low 50s near the coast. /96

EXTENDED TERM /Tuesday Through Friday/. The upper-level low that pushes off the Texas coast at the end of the short term period weakens and dissipates over the southern Gulf of Mexico. At the same time, a longwave trough digs over the western US and begins its eastward trek across CONUS. Flow aloft over our region will briefly become zonal on Tuesday before returning to southwesterly by Wednesday as the longwave trough amplifies and approaches. At the surface, high pressure pushes off the Eastern Seaboard by Tuesday evening and moves eastward into the Atlantic. A strong cold front, associated with the longwave trough, begins pushing southward across the Central Plains on Tuesday. Low pressure develops along the front and pushes northeastward. At the same time, a LLJ at the 850mb level develops over the Lower MS River Valley and spreads northeastward. These features will allow for a warm front to push northward across our region on Wednesday, bringing with it strong warm air advection and an increase of deep-layer moisture, with PWATs increasing to 1.5-1.8 inches by Wednesday afternoon. This will lead to a period of unsettled weather, with shower chances returning for Wednesday. It should be noted that models have been trending a little slower with this, so PoPs have been lowered for Tuesday and have been capped at 50% on Wednesday due to timing uncertainties. Not expecting any thunderstorms at this time on Wednesday as little, if any, instability is present. By Thursday, the strong cold front will approach, bringing with it another round of showers. Instability values do increase for Thursday, so included a slight chance of thunderstorms as this front pushes through. Although there are still questions regarding timing, currently thinking that rain chances will end from west to east by Thursday night into early Friday morning. Behind the front, a much colder, drier airmass pushes in. /96

MARINE. Strong northwest winds develop tonight with frequent gusts to Gale force through Saturday morning. Winds and seas decrease through Saturday night as high pressure builds over the marine area. A west to southwest flow develops on Sunday and becomes southerly early next week as the next system approaches the area. /13
