Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mobile AL 348 PM CDT Fri Apr 3 2020

NEAR TERM UPDATE /Now Through Saturday/. Upper level ridging will continue late this afternoon and is expected to persist over the northern Gulf coast through the day tomorrow as well. Meanwhile, a northern stream trough is currently progressing over the north- central CONUS and will make its way over the Great Lakes through tomorrow. At the surface, high pressure will continue to dominate over the region. By tomorrow afternoon, the high pressure will begin to break down and move east as a cold front approaches the southeastern CONUS from the west.

Some isolated, light returns were seen on radar this morning; however, surface observations indicated that this moisture was most likely not hitting the ground. Sensible weather will be dry through the first part of the weekend, with some high clouds moving over the region. An increase in cloud cover is then expected later tomorrow afternoon with the advancement of a cold front towards the region from the west. Light offshore flow overnight followed by light onshore flow during the day will also be the story through Saturday, with a light seabreeze expected during the afternoon today and tomorrow.

Lows tonight will be cool, in the mid to upper 50s over the inland areas and around 60 degrees right along the coast. Highs tomorrow are then expected to be slightly warmer, in the lower to mid 80s. /26

SHORT TERM /Saturday night Through Monday night/. Relatively weak zonal flow aloft is expected as a weak upper level ridge begins to build east into the Gulf and Southeast late in the weekend. The ridge continues to nudge east in response to a closed upper level low that is sliding down the West Coast through early next week. Closer to home, a slow-moving shortwave passes through the zonal flow on Sunday, which may lead to the development of scattered rain showers. If we get any showers at all, it will likely occur across the southern portion of the area on Sunday afternoon. As the shortwave meanders out of the region and ridging builds in, the area should remain dry in the Sunday night through Monday timeframe before rain chances start to creep up in advance of the next system on Tuesday.

Temperatures will be on the rise on Sunday and Monday with highs topping out in the mid 80s for many inland locations by Monday afternoon. Overnight lows remain in the 50s and 60s on Saturday night and Sunday night, while only falling into the mid to upper 60s by Monday night (several degrees above normal for this time of year). Something to keep in mind is that our dewpoints will begin to inch up slowly through the short term, especially as we get into early next week.

The rip current risk remains low through Monday night. 07/mb

EXTENDED TERM /Tuesday Through Friday/. Weak ridging aloft continues to amplify as it nudges east across the Gulf and Southeast through mid-week. To our west, a closed upper low moves onshore in California and eventually pivots across the Southwest and into the Southern Plains late in the week. At the same time, a sprawling upper low dives across Manitoba and Ontario toward the Great Lakes. Model guidance quickly diverges on the evolution, timing, and location of these upper level lows on Thursday through the weekend, which has implications for the confidence in our chances for showers and storms later in the week.

That said, several shortwaves pass through the region before the ridge begins to break down and flatten late in the week. The best chance for rain is Tuesday afternoon across the northern half of the area where we maintain likely POPs as a shortwave moves through the region. Beyond that, there is a chance for showers and storms each afternoon through the remainder of the work week. For now, we maintain 30-40% POPs on Wednesday with 20-30% POPs on Thursday and Friday as our confidence is low given the large differences in model solutions.

Temperatures will be on the upswing through the remainder of the week with Wednesday being the hottest day of the week. Temperatures will soar into the upper 80s to 90°F by Wednesday afternoon. Unfortunately, the mugginess will briefly return as dewpoints surge into the upper 60s to low 70s by Wednesday afternoon. It will feel quite muggy overnight with lows staying 10-20°F above normal on both Tuesday night and Wednesday night. 07/mb

MARINE. A generally light wind flow will continue through the weekend. Light offshore flow can be expected at night followed by southerly flow developing each afternoon. A slight chance of rain showers will also be possible on Sunday. East/southeast flow will then follow for early next week, with moderate southwest flow developing Tuesday as a cold front advances towards the region from the northwest. Moderate west to southwest flow is then expected through midweek. There is a slight chance of rain showers Tuesday through Wednesday over the coast as well. /26

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
