Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mobile AL 1007 PM CDT Sat Sep 26 2020

NEAR TERM /Now Through Monday/. An upper-level shortwave trough over the ARKLATEX region will progress northeastward over the Tennessee Valley through Sunday afternoon before racing away towards New England Monday as it gets swept up in strengthening southwesterly flow ahead of an anomalously deep longwave trough digging into the central Plains. At the surface, high pressure over the local area begins to retreat eastward in response to a strong early season cold front advancing quickly southeastward across the Plains. This shifts local low-level winds to more southerly through the near term.

For the most part dry weather is forecast for the remainder of tonight, though a stray shower or two cannot be ruled out along the Florida panhandle beaches. Some patchy dense fog will be possible over interior areas west of I-65 late tonight into early Sunday morning, but should dissipate by mid morning. Better rain chances settle in along and east of I-65 Sunday afternoon as the upper shortwave mentioned earlier in this discussion skirts the local area. CAMs continue to suggest an overlap of roughly 1000-1500 J/kg MLCAPE and 30-40 knots of bulk shear over the interior western Florida panhandle and south-central Alabama during afternoon and early evening hours. However, model soundings show significant dry air above 850 mb and mediocre mid-level lapse rates, so dry air entrainment and weak vertical motion could limit vigorous updraft development. Will need to keep an eye on how the mesoscale environment evolves, but the potential is there for a few stronger storms capable of producing damaging wind gusts or small hail.

Rain chances retreat mostly south and east of the area Sunday night as the shortwave departs and we lose both the upper support and instability. More isolated to scattered showers and storms develop Monday ahead of the strong cold front approaching the local area from the northwest. At this time, it does not appear as though flow aloft will be sufficient for significant convective organization, with only 15-20 knots of bulk shear progged in even the most aggressive CAMs. Thus, not expecting much in terms of severe weather Monday.

Lows each night drop into the mid to upper 60s inland and lower 70s right along the coast. Highs will be warm each afternoon, reaching the low to mid 80s for most with a few spots possibly getting close to 90. A low risk of rip currents continues through the weekend and into early next week. /49
