...New

Issued at 845pm EST Wednesday Nov 30 2022

Drier northerly air continues to push south across the region, the forecast remains on track and updates are not necessary this evening.

Near Term
(Through Thursday) Issued at 235pm EST Wednesday Nov 30 2022

A cold front is expected to pass through our CWA (County Warning Area) tomorrow, advecting dry continental air into the area dropping dewpoints into the high 20s / upper 30s and temperatures in the upper 30s / low 40s overnight. Clear skies will prevail as our upper level moisture mixes out with the passage of this system with a surface high pressure building in its wake. This will bring temperatures in the upper 50s / mid 60s areawide as cooler air pushes into the region from the NNE. Winds are expected to remain breezy with some gusts from 15 to 20 mph as the pressure gradient tightens over the region.

.SHORT TERM... (Thursday night through Friday night) Issued at 235pm EST Wednesday Nov 30 2022

An upper level ridge will become better established through the end of the week over the central Gulf of Mexico while locally, northeasterly flow will begin to take hold. No significant systems are expected to end the week and with the ridge in solid control of the pattern into the upcoming weekend, expect a moderating trend to begin by Friday as low level moisture begins to move back into the region.

Long Term
(Saturday through Tuesday) Issued at 235pm EST Wednesday Nov 30 2022

Upper level ridge over the Gulf will remain the dominant weather feature for the tri-state region over the weekend and into early next week with westerly upper level flow expected. With the ridge in control of the weather, and light east/southeast flow expected through next week, we'll see a warming trend with much of the chances for rain remaining well north of the region. Temperatures will be in the upper 70s through much of the period with low temperatures in the upper 50s and low 60s. Above normal for this time of year.

Marine
Issued at 235pm EST Wednesday Nov 30 2022

The storms along the front have pushed out of the area but winds will strengthen tonight as winds turn to be out of the north. A Small Craft Advisory has been issued from Wednesday evening into Thursday afternoon. Tranquil boating returns this weekend.

Fire Weather
Issued at 235pm EST Wednesday Nov 30 2022

Higher transport winds out of the NNE will keep dispersions at favorable levels with RH values expected to remain above critical values Thursday afternoon. On Friday, transport winds will begin to decrease which will bring low dispersions primarily to areas west of the Apalachee and Flint river basins.

Hydrology
Issued at 235pm EST Wednesday Nov 30 2022

Rainfall amounts of 0.5 to 1.5 inches were observed with localized higher amounts across southeast Alabama with this frontal system. These amounts are not enough to cause significant rises on area rivers and no concerns are anticipated through the next 5 to 7 days with little rainfall in the forecast.
