Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mobile AL 1149 PM CST Thu Dec 5 2019

DISCUSSION. Updated for latest aviation discussion below.

AVIATION. 06Z issuance . VFR conditions will continue across the region through Friday morning. Scattered to broken mid to high level cloud decks will stream across the region through Friday morning, with ceilings expected to lower to 4-5 KFT AGL by around 18Z. MVFR ceilings should develop Friday afternoon into early Friday evening as scattered to numerous rain showers develop across the region. Winds will remain light and out of the south to southeast. /21

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 949 PM CST Thu Dec 5 2019/

DISCUSSION . See updated information for land areas below.

UPDATE . Current forecast overall in good shape, with minor downward adjustments to temperatures to reflect current observations and increases in sky cover, with mid/high level cloud cover continuing to move east over the forecast area. With the cloud cover increasing after midnight, am expecting overnight lows to bottom out after midnight, then level off or begin a slow increase as radiational cooling over the forecast area decreases. Updated package has been sent. /16

PREV DISCUSSION . /issued 530 PM CST Thu Dec 5 2019/

DISCUSSION . Updated for latest aviation discussion below.

AVIATION . 00Z issuance . VFR conditions prevail tonight with a broken to overcast cloud deck remaining above 10kft. Mid-level cloud cover increases Friday morning, eventually lowering to MVFR levels by the afternoon as scattered showers develop across the area. Winds remain light and out of the south to southeast. /49

PREV DISCUSSION . /issued 404 PM CST Thu Dec 5 2019/

NEAR TERM /Now Through Friday/ . High pressure will continue to move eastward tonight as a shortwave approaches from the west. Ahead of this system, clouds will increase late tonight into Friday. As the shortwave moves east on Friday, showers will increase to our west and move into the area during the late morning and afternoon hours. Meanwhile, a weak sfc low will move southeast into the northern Gulf and weaken as the upper support weakens and moves away. The combination of weakening upper support and the lack of significant moisture return will keep rain amounts generally light. We have also removed thunder from the forecast as the instability remains very weak and well offshore. The highest rain chances will be across northern portions of the area where the best upper dynamics will be. Lows tonight will fall in the mid and upper 40s inland to mid 50s along the coast. Highs on Friday will be in the upper 60s and low 70s. /13

SHORT TERM /Friday night Through Sunday night/ . The forecast area will be situated between the surface low over the northeastern Gulf of Mexico and an area of surface high pressure moving from the from the midwest states to the northeast states. This will keep a cool, light northerly wind flow over the area through Saturday evening. The winds will then shift to the east and then southeast through Sunday as a strong surface ridge of high pressure sets up along the eastern seaboard. As a result, the surface low pressure area will evolve into an inverted trough, and get shoved westward and dissipate. Scattered light rain Friday evening will taper off from northwest to southeast overnight into Saturday as the surface low moves further away from the area. Only a few light showers are expected to remain east of I-65 through Saturday night. Isolated to scattered light rain showers will return Sunday due to over-running between the backside of the surface ridge and trough. Low temperatures through the weekend will range from 49 to 56 degrees. High temperatures will range from 60 to 68 degrees on Saturday, and from 63 to 70 degrees on Sunday. /22

LONG TERM /Monday Through Thursday/ . A positively tilted upper trough over the western conus, with an embedded closed upper low over southern California will advance eastward over the central states into midweek. An associated surface cold front will move southeast across the forecast area late Monday night through Tuesday evening. A line of showers and storms should develop ahead of this front, and mid level dynamics appear to be a bit stronger than the previous frontal passage, so will have to monitor this FROPA for possible strong/severe storms as well. Despite the more favorable conditions, the nocturnal timing of the system (moving into the area before daybreak on Tuesday morning) will contribute to limited instability. Isentropic lift ahead of the approaching system will support slight chance to chance pops on Monday then good chance to likely pops follow for Monday night through Tuesday as the front moves through, then drier conditions are expected midweek in the wake of the front. Daytime highs in the 70s on Monday as the front approaches, and then back down into the 60s on Tuesday behind the front and even cooler on Wednesday, in the 50s. Lows Monday night in the 50s, then cooler Tuesday night in the wake of the front, primarily in the mid 30s to mid 40s. /22

MARINE . A light southerly flow will develop tonight in response to an area of low pressure approaching from the west. This area of low pressure will move over the marine area on Saturday then shift north over the weekend. A moderate southerly flow will develop Sunday and continue into early next week ahead of a cold front approaching from the west. /13

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
