Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mobile AL 1200 AM CDT Tue Jul 7 2020

AVIATION. 06Z issuance . Showers and perhaps a few rumbles of thunder expected just offshore tonight, primarily along the Florida panhandle coast. These could bring some MVFR cigs back to the coast prior to Tuesday morning and afternoon when they will redevelop more areawide as showers and storms spread inland. Winds remain generally out of the west around 5 to 10 knots, with gusts to around 15 to 20 knots possible along the coast. /49

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 1037 PM CDT Mon Jul 6 2020/

NEAR TERM /Now Through Tuesday night/ . Flow aloft remains mostly zonal with a series of weak impulses passing over the area through the near term. At the surface, high pressure slips south of the surface low departing to the northeast and into the central Gulf. This maintains a predominantly westerly low-level flow pattern across the region. This has little effect on boundary layer moisture, I'm afraid, as we remain firmly entrenched in a deeply moist Gulf airmass characterized by PWATs in excess of 2 inches. Daytime heating and the passing weaknesses aloft will continue to support a numerous to widespread shower and thunderstorm coverage across the area on Tuesday, with activity once again initiating along the coast in the morning and spreading inland throughout the day. Frequent lightning and heavy downpours will be the primary hazards. A few locations that see heavier rain could experience minor flooding, particularly in low-lying and poor drainage areas. Activity will taper over land areas after dark, though a few isolated to scattered showers and storms should linger through overnight hours well offshore. Temps remain steady in the mid to upper 80s Tuesday afternoon, mitigated by the extensive cloud cover and shower activity. Lows Tuesday night stay in the 70s. A High Rip Current Risk remains in effect along all area beaches through Wednesday night. /49

SHORT TERM /Tuesday night Through Thursday night/ . A very moist airmass continues over the area through much of the short term. Meanwhile, a upper ridge over the southwest states will expand eastward through the end of the week. As the ridge expands and the upper trough moves east, the area will come under a northwesterly upper level flow pattern. Disturbances moving through this flow will continue to generate scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms on Wednesday. Thursday will feature lowers rain chances to the south and west closer to the influence of the ridge with higher pops across northeast areas. As some mid-level dry air in the northwest flow begins to move into the area on Thursday the west microburst risk will begin to increase with any stronger storms.

High in the upper 80s to near 90 on Wednesday with upper 80s and low 90s returning on Thursday. Heat index values of 100 to 105 can be expected on Thursday. Little change in overnight lows low to mid 70s inland to mid and upper 70s near the coast. /13

EXTENDED TERM /Friday Through Monday/ . Northwest flow aloft will generally persist through the extended with an upper level ridge over the Desert Southwest and Southern Plains and an upper level low meandering along the East Coast. The area remains stuck between the ridge to our west and trough to our east through early next week. Shortwaves moving through this northwest upper flow will likely bring convective complexes or remnant outflows into the area at times, however timing these disturbances this far out is impossible. Showers and storms will be primarily diurnally driven with development near the coast in the morning spreading inland through the afternoon and early evening hours. As some drier mid-level air moves into the area as the ridge expands eastward, the wet microburst risk will continue to be increased. The potential for a few strong storms remains each afternoon as the dry, northwesterly flow aloft moves over the moist, unstable airmass below.

Afternoon highs will begin to rebound as we get later in the week and will progressively get hotter each afternoon. Overnight lows will only fall into the low to mid 70s inland each night with upper 70s to near 80° at the beaches. Expect heat index values of 100-106 area-wide by Friday with a few spots potentially nearing or topping advisory criteria over the weekend. /13

MARINE . Moderate westerly winds will produce hazardous conditions to small craft through Tuesday. Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will also pose marine hazards each day. Winds and waves will begin to subside by the weekend and no marine hazards are expected during the second half of the week. BB/03

MOB WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. AL . High Rip Current Risk through late Wednesday night for ALZ265- 266.

FL . High Rip Current Risk through late Wednesday night for FLZ202- 204-206.

MS . None. GM . None.
