Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mobile AL 1131 PM CST Tue Jan 19 2021

AVIATION. 06Z issuance . VFR conditions prevail throughout the period, with only some mid/high clouds moving in overnight tonight. Calm winds to start the TAF period become northerly tonight as a weak front pushes through, then shift back to southerly by late Wednesday evening. /49

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 856 PM CST Tue Jan 19 2021/

NEAR TERM /Now Through Thursday/ . An upper ridge builds over the South Plains to start the period, with flow over the local area shifting slightly more northwesterly as a result. At the surface, high pressure over the local area pushes southeast into the eastern and northeastern Gulf of Mexico as a cold front advances slowly southwards through the Tennessee Valley. Wednesday remains dry with high temps in the low to mid 60s under partly sunny skies. However, winds here shift back to southerly Wednesday night into Thursday, transporting rich Gulf moisture northward across the Deep South where it pools ahead (south) of the approaching front. We see PWATs climb to around 1.3-1.5 inches across our area by Thursday morning as a result.

The upper ridge to our west flattens as we head into Thursday as a weak shortwave ejects eastward from the Desert Southwest over the South Plains. As a result, flow becomes zonal over the local area again. Weak disturbances embedded within this flow pass overhead and, combined with improving boundary layer moisture, will support an increasing coverage of showers across the area throughout the day Thursday. Rain chances start during the pre- dawn hours north of Highway 84 before gradually spreading south towards the coast throughout the day. The heaviest rain will fall north of Highway 84 where some could see upwards of half an inch of rain by the end of the day, while folks closer to the coast may only get a few hundredths of an inch. No flooding is expected since preceding conditions are very dry and these rain amounts would fall over the course of 12 hours. Meanwhile, temperatures will trend slightly warmer with the return of southerly flow and moisture. Highs on Thursday range from low/mid 60s inland to upper 60s along the coast. /49

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.
