Marine
.SHORT TERM... (This evening through Monday) Issued at 245pm CDT Sunday September 25 2022

Hot and dry conditions are ongoing across the forecast area this afternoon, with temperatures currently in the low to mid 90s amid sunny skies. Fortunately, a repreive from this unseasonably warm weather is on the horizon, with a large eastern CONUS trof expected to push a cold front into the region early tomorrow morning. Tomorrow will be sort of a transitions day between the last several hot days and the next several more mild days. Tomorrow afternoon, highs will top out in the upper 80s to lower 90s however, dewpoints will fall nearly 10 degrees through the day as northerly winds advect a drier airmass into the region.

On Tuesday, we start the day with our first real substantial taste of fall with morning lows bottoming out in the upper 50s to low 60s. Surface high pressure settling overhead in the wake of Monday's front will provide clear skies and light to moderate northerly winds through the day, which will allow afternoon highs to top out in the mid 80s. Even though it will be somewhat warm through the afternoon hours, dewpoints will struggle to get out of the 40s, so plenty of dry air will make for a rather pleasant fall afternoon.

Long Term
(Wednesday through Sunday) Issued at 245pm CDT Sunday September 25 2022

To start the period, high pressure ridging down from the Great Lakes will be providing northerly flow and a dry airmass that will allow for cool night time temperatures and comfortable daytime temperatures.

An upper level trough will be located along the northeast US and Mid- Atlantic coast with an upper level ridge centered over northwest Texas. Meanwhile, tropical cyclone Ian will be over the eastern Gulf of Mexico off the west coast of Florida. Ian will continue to move toward the weakness in the ridge over the northeast Gulf of Mexico and toward the Florida Panhandle and western Peninsula by late in the week. The outer circulation with this system will help to enhance the northerly flow over the forecast area and reinforce the dry airmass in place. Therefore, fall like temperatures are expected into the weekend with no chance for rain.

Marine
Issued at 245pm CDT Sunday September 25 2022

Tomorrow a cold front will move through the coastal waters, bringing a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms. Winds will become northerly and gradually strengthen tomorrow into early Tuesday, with Exercise Caution Flags likely being required by late tomorrow. Tropical Storm Ian is expected to strengthen into a hurricane and move across the eastern Gulf of Mexico through the middle to later part of next week. As a result, elevated winds and higher swells will be possible over our coastal waters by early Wednesday. Refer to the National Hurricane Center for further updates on this system.
