Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mobile AL 1210 AM CDT Sat Aug 8 2020

AVIATION. 06Z issuance . A VFR forecast remains prevalent across the region through the next 24 hours. Isolated SHRA/TSRA may develop near the immediate coast by Saturday morning, but more scattered convective coverage is expected to develop inland, especially along the seabreeze from portions of the western FL panhandle and adjacent portions of southwest and south central AL. Localized MVFR or lower conditions and gusty/erratic winds can be expected near the stronger storm cells that develop. Near calm to light southwest/west winds prevail overnight. Southerly to southwesterly winds will pick up to around 10 knots near the coast again Saturday afternoon in association with the seabreeze, while lighter southwest to west winds are anticipated further inland. /21

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 1043 PM CDT Fri Aug 7 2020/

NEAR TERM /Now Through Sunday/ . A weak mid to upper level flow pattern continues across the north central Gulf Coast region this evening as our area remains located to the south of weak troughing extending southwestward across the Tennessee Valley and adjacent northern portions of MS/AL/GA. Our area is also positioned to the north of a ridge axis extending from Texas through the FL peninsula and adjacent western Atlantic. There were a couple of lingering showers through around 8-9 PM around the area, but those have dissipated as of 10 PM. Regional GOES-16 imagery shows mostly clear skies in place across the area and we generally expect that trend to continue overnight. High resolution guidance does indicate that a few showers and thunderstorms may re-develop late tonight into early Saturday morning over our Gulf marine zones and possibly as far northward as to near immediate coastal areas of far southwest AL and the western FL panhandle along a narrow plume of enhanced moisture and convergence. We have introduced a slight chance of convection over these zones after midnight and into the early morning hours Saturday.

A persistent weather pattern is anticipated across our forecast area through the weekend as flow aloft is expected to remain weak between mean ridging from the western Atlantic through much of the Gulf and into Texas and as mean troughing extends from the Eastern Seaboard through the southeastern states. The weak surface trough that has extended over the region the past few days may linger over interior portions of our forecast area Saturday before becoming diffuse by Sunday. Deep layer moisture will tend to remain most enhanced along central and southern portions of the CWA both Saturday and Sunday, where precipitable water values will continue to average between 1.6-1.8 inches, and slightly lower between 1.4-1.6 inches over interior areas. Low level moisture convergence will also be favored over our central and southern zones, where scattered showers and thunderstorms should develop both afternoons. We will maintain POPs around 30% over these areas with slightly lower POPs around 20% over the interior. MLCAPE values may trend upward to between 2000-3000 J/KG along the seabreeze across portions of the western FL panhandle and adjacent south central and southwest AL both Saturday and Sunday afternoons, so there is some potential for enhanced updrafts and subsequent downdrafts with a few storm cells over this portion of the region. Locally strong wind gusts in excess of 40 mph, brief heavy rainfall and frequent lightning will all be possible with the stronger cells that develop both days.

Highs Saturday and Sunday will reach into the mid 90s over most interior areas along and north of I-10, and in the upper 80s to lower 90s along the immediate coast and beaches. Higher afternoon dewpoints will allow max heat indices to trend upward into the 100-105 degrees range on Saturday, and perhaps between 102-107 by Sunday afternoon. Lows Saturday night will continue to range in the lower to mid 70s inland and in the upper 70s to around 80 degrees along the immediate coast and beaches. /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.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
