GMZ600 Synopsis For Pascagoula Ms To Okaloosa Walton County Line Fl Out 60 Nm Including Major Area Bays And Sounds- 329 Am Cdt Wed Apr 8 2020
Synopsis..Light to occasionaly moderate westerly flow today will increase to a more moderate flow Thursday as a weak front moves into the area. Showers and storms will be possible in association with this front, which will likely move just offshore by Thursday night. Behind the front, a moderate to strong northeast flow is expected for Friday. A developing weather system over the weekend will then likely result in even stronger winds and building seas.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mobile AL 1148 PM CDT Tue Apr 7 2020

NEAR TERM /Now Through Wednesday night/. Upper level ridging will become more zonal overnight tonight and persist through early Thursday morning as a northern stream trough begins to progress over the Great Lakes and northern Ohio Valley regions. Closer to the surface, high pressure will maintain its hold over the northeastern Gulf of Mexico through Wednesday before a cold front advances towards the region by Thursday morning.

While some isolated, light showers are possible through the remainder of the night tonight, most areas will be dry. Hi-Res model guidance shows shower activity tapering off through tonight. Some slight reductions in visibility have been observed from surface stations across our area, but no major reductions to note. Model probabilities continue to show a good likelihood of patchy fog development through tonight. Therefore, patchy fog will remain possible area-wide through tomorrow morning; but, by mid-morning any fog will dissipate. Lastly, still expecting overnight lows in the upper 60s to around 70 degrees.

A few, weak upper level impulses will pass over the northern Gulf coast Wednesday. There will also be ample CAPE in the afternoon, with between 1500-2000 J/kg of both surface and mid-level based CAPE shown by model guidance over the entire area. Models also show between 40 and 50 knots of bulk shear along with 500-700mb lapse rates around 6-6.5 C/km Wednesday afternoon. Furthermore, west southwest flow will continue to usher moisture into the region. Expecting dew points in the upper 60s to lower 70s through Wednesday and between 1.7 and 1.8 inches of precipitable water during this time. The weak upper level impulses combined with the thermodynamic parameters mentioned above will lead to continued unsettled weather potential through the day Wednesday, mainly for areas north of Interstate 10. A few severe storms could be possible - the Storm Prediction Center has outlooked areas generally along and north of Highway 85 in a Marginal Risk of severe thunderstorms.

By Wednesday evening, the loss of daytime heating will cause any storm potential to wane. In addition, model guidance suggests very limited chances of showers, with only a slight chance north of Highway 85 Wednesday night. Cloud cover is expected to decrease through the evening as well. High temperatures during the day Wednesday are expected to be in the mid 80s, with continued warm low temperatures (upper 60s to lower 70s) at night. Patchy fog is again possible Wednesday night, mainly along and south of Interstate 65. /26

AVIATION. 06Z issuance . IFR to low-end MVFR conditions were observed at the TAF sites at issuance. Lower CIGs are expected to persist through mid-morning Wednesday before beginning to recover somewhat through the afternoon as cloud cover begins to decrease. However, lower CIGs will return through Wednesday evening. Patchy fog remains possible area-wide tonight, but any fog will lift by mid- morning Wednesday. Showers and the potential for a few thunderstorms are likely again tomorrow, but will mainly be concentrated north of Interstate 10. Thus, much of the shower and storm activity is not expected to impact the TAF sites. Winds will be out of the southwest and generally be under 10 knots through the TAF period. /26

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.
