Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Mobile AL 338 PM CDT Thu Oct 1 2020

NEAR TERM UPDATE /Now Through Friday/. An upper level trough remains anchored over the eastern conus of the U.S. today into Friday while a surface cold front comes in from the northwest this afternoon and evening. This front will bring a reinforcing shot of cooler and drier air with no precipitation. With this, we continue to prolong our period of beautiful weather conditions into Friday. Thursday night will feature lows in the lower to middle 50's with northwesterly winds becoming northerly at 5 to 10mph. Friday winds will relax some to generally 5mph, and with the reinforced cool airmass highs will generally stay in the lower to maybe middle 70's with clear skies. A LOW RISK of rip currents will also continue through the period. /MM

SHORT TERM /Friday night Through Sunday night/. Nice weather going into the weekend. Upper level trof remains fixed in place from the Great Lakes to the central Gulf coast. Deep layer moisture to be low with PWAT values only around a half inch. Surface high pressure over the Mid-Atlantic, nosing southwest across the Gulf coast, maintains a dry northeast flow over the local area.

Coolest lows in the short term are Friday night from 46 to 51 inland to upper 50s near the coast. Thereafter, Saturday and Sunday night shows a gradual moderating trend in lows. Highs Saturday in the low/mid 70s lift to a range of 77 to 81 by Sunday. /10

EXTENDED TERM /Monday Through Thursday/. Upper trof axis begins to pivot eastward over the Appalachians Monday morning and ejects quickly off into the west Atlantic by Monday night. This would allow for the passage of another weak reinforcing cold front. But it's of no consequence as deep layer moisture remains too low to support a mention of precipitation, much less much in the way of cloud cover. Following on the heels of the lead upper trof is the eastward expanse of vigorous upper level energy/concentrated height falls spreading across the Great Lakes and Mid MS River Valley Tuesday moving across the New England States and Del-Mar- Va Peninsula late Wednesday into Thursday. Next in a series of fronts makes passage late Thursday. For the most part, a surface ridge of high pressure remains the dominate weather feature over the southeastern states through the middle of next week. A small chance of showers (20% or less) possible by Wednesday afternoon over portions of the coastal counties. All in all, a typical uneventful October weather pattern is expected during the medium range.

Monday's highs in the mid/upper 70s inland to near 80 coast, look to modify into the lower to mid 80s by Wednesday and Thursday. Lows in the lower/mid 50s interior to lower/mid 60s coast Monday night will also trend warmer by mid week. /10

MARINE. Winds and seas are light this afternoon and early evening with a surface cold front located just onshore across the Gulf coast. This front will move southeast over the marine zones this evening into tonight bringing stronger winds over 20kts with gusts to 25kts along our coastal waters out to 60NM including lower Mobile Bay and the Mississippi Sound. A Small Craft Advisory will be in effect from 10pm this evening to 10am CDT Friday morning for these winds. Waves should build to 3 to 5ft Friday over coastal waters and diminish to 2 to 4ft through the weekend. /MM
