A strong surface ridge of high pressure will build from the eastern and southeastern states and into the northeastern gulf of mexico Thursday through the weekend.

area forecast discussion... Updated
national weather service mobile al
121 pm cdt Tue sep 17 2019

Discussion See updated information for land areas and aviation
discussion below.

Update Did a quick update to the current zone forecast mainly
to add slight chance or isolated pops, generally along the i-10
corridor and further inland over inland SE ms, developing along a
seabreeze front advancing inland over lower portions of our
forecast area later this afternoon. Little to no measurable rain
is expected. Higher than normal temps and heat index values
ranging from 99 to 105 degrees f are still expected. No
advisories are anticipated. 32 ee

Aviation
18z issuance...VFR conditions through 18.18z. A few low clouds
combined with scattered high clouds will be possible this
afternoon along with a few isolated showers or thunderstorms
generally along a developing seabreeze circulation just north of
the coast later this afternoon. Winds will become mostly
southwest at 5 to 10 knots later this afternoon becoming light and
variable later this evening and overnight continuing through
midday wed. 32 ee

Prev discussion issued 642 am cdt Tue sep 17 2019
discussion... Updated for latest aviation discussion below.

Aviation...

12z issuance...VFR is expected to prevail across the region
through the next 24 hours. An isolated shra or tsra will be
possible this afternoon, but probabilities are very low and have
not included mention in the local tafs. Light northwest to north
winds will generally continue today, except becoming southwest
5-10 knots over southern portions of our area along a seabreeze
this afternoon. 21
prev discussion... Issued 440 am cdt Tue sep 17 2019
near term now through Tuesday night ... A mid to upper level ridge
of high pressure will extend from the lower mississippi valley to
the great lakes region today, while a broad low pressure system
slowly drifts across the northwestern gulf of mexico near the
southeast tx coast. Most of our forecast area will remain under the
influence of the building mid to upper level ridge today, with
associated subsidence and rather low precipitable water values
between 1.2 and 1.4 inches. We will keep a mostly sunny and dry
forecast intact across most inland areas today. The exception could
be across southern portions of southeast ms and far southwest al,
where low level convergence along a developing seabreeze, higher
precipitable water values between 1.6 and 1.9 inches and associated
higher instability may result in the development of a few isolated
showers and thunderstorms this afternoon. We will opt to include a
15-20% pop in the forecast generally southwest of a janice, ms to
mobile, al line this afternoon. The heat will otherwise persist
across the area today with high temperatures forecast to range in
the mid to upper 90s, with a few locations reaching around 100
degrees. These readings could approach record levels (record high
temperatures for today include 100 degrees at kmob set in 1927 and
97 at kpns set in 1991). Mostly clear and dry conditions are
anticipated tonight with lows around 70 degrees to the lower 70s
inland, and in the mid to upper 70s near the coast and beaches.

21
short term Wednesday through Thursday night ... An upper ridge
will remain in place through the period. This will bring another
day of hot and dry weather to the area on Wednesday with temps in
the upper 90s to near 100. The sfc ridge builds across the mid-
atlantic coast into the southeast during the latter half of the
week. This will bring an easterly flow to the area as a back- door
cold front moves through the area on Thursday and brings a slight
decrease to the hot temps. This feature will also produce
isolated to scattered showers and storms to the area on Thursday.

Long term Friday through Monday ... Deep layer ridging continues
across the area through Saturday before flattening out somewhat
Sunday into Monday as an upper trough moves across the great lakes
region. An associated weak front will approach the tennessee
valley but stall north and west of there due to the ridge over the
southeast. Therefore rain chances remain low through the period
outside of small chances near the coast and offshore.

Temperatures remain in the low to mid 90s each afternoon. 13
marine... A weak surface ridge of high pressure will remain in place
over the north central gulf of mexico through Wednesday night. A
light north to northwest flow late at night and in the morning will
become light to occasionally moderate southwest in the afternoon and
evening today through Wednesday night. A strong surface ridge of
high pressure will build from the eastern and southeastern states
and into the northeastern gulf of mexico Thursday through the
weekend. This pattern will result in a moderate to occasionally
strong easterly flow and building seas across the marine area late
this week and into much of the weekend. 21

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.
