Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mobile AL 140 PM CDT Thu Sep 16 2021

NEAR TERM /Now Through Friday/. Not much change in the near term with the large scale pattern remaining pretty much the same through the period. The synoptic scale deep layer differential divergence continues shifting east of south central Alabama and the western FL Panhandle. Nicholas's remnants continue spinning over south-central LA slowly creeping east, with a surface trough extending east into our area. This surface boundary continues to move north across SE MS and SW AL. Further east, the boundary remains draped across the coast of the western FL panhandle. Given the lack of forcing in the upper levels, and broad low-level convergence along the surface boundary, convective development through the rest of today will not be as focused in nature. We expect convective development to remain focused along the surface boundary as daytime heating helps to increase instability. Given how saturated the region is from previous rainfall, a Flash Flood Watch will remain in effect through the near term period.

Going into tonight and into Friday, a modest shortwave trough with an upper low located near north central Texas/Oklahoma begins to approach the region from the west. Likewise, a modest shortwave trough will be located near the Appalachians this evening, with a weak shortwave ridge located over the north central Gulf coast states between these two features. The weak upper ridge will slowly shift eastward through Friday as the shortwave trough over north central TX slides into the ArkLatex region, with the upper low becoming more closed off. The shortwave trough over the Appalachians weakens and lifts off to the north through Friday. This pattern evolution allows for a series of shortwaves embedded in the flow east of the modest upper low to move across the forecast area mainly during the day on Friday. At the surface, a weak surface low located initially over south central LA (the remnants of Nicholas) weakens further while drifting into northern Louisiana through Friday. Abundant deep layer moisture remains rooted in place over the area, with PWATs around 2.0 inches today, increasing to around 2.2 inches on Friday. Given this set-up of deep layer moisture, along with the series of shortwaves setting up to move across the area will support shower and storm chances trending upward from chance to likely pops tonight, to categorical pops on Friday. With this, given how saturated the region is from previous rainfall, a Flash Flood Watch will remain in effect through the near term period across much of southeast Mississippi, southwest Alabama and the western Florida panhandle. Additional rainfall amounts of 3-6 inches with locally higher amounts are expected going through tonight and into Friday, especially near the coast. Cannot rule out some stronger storms producing some gusty winds through the period, mainly due to precip loading.

As for temps, given how cloudy it will be through the period, highs will range from low to mid 80s, with some areas further inland potentially not making it out of the upper 70s in areas of heavier rainfall. Lows tonight will then generally be in the lower 70s inland to the mid 70s down to the coast.

Lastly, the HIGH RISK of rip currents was extended through tonight, with a moderate to follow through the first part of the weekend. JEH/88

AVIATION. 18Z issuance . Mainly MVFR conditions are expected through the rest of today with potential drops to IFR in areas of any shower and storm development. Breaks in rainfall are possible through tonight, however, expecting the wet pattern to persist through the period, especially near the coast. Winds will be from the south/southeast through the period ranging range from 5-10 knots inland to around 10 knots at the coast. Southeast winds will then decrease to around 5 knots or less inland, to between 5-10 knots at the coast this evening and overnight. JEH/88

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