.NEAR TERM UPDATE /Now Through Sunday/...After a rather intense morning with damaging winds up to 85 mph and hail up to 4 inches, we can finally take a breath as quieter weather is on tap for at least the next 48 hours as the deep upper trough slowly moves across the area. The broader longwave trough is still lingering back over Missouri and will slowly track northwest over the next 24 hours. In association with this trough is a cold front extending southwest across the Mid-Mississippi valley and will slowly progress eastward with the upper trough. A few isolated showers will be possible late tonight as the upper trough and surface cold front move across the area. All should be east of the area by Sunday morning leading to drier and not quite as soupy as Today.

Lows tonight will likely be in the 50s inland to near 60 at the coast as drier air slowly filters into the area. With plentiful sunshine tomorrow highs will be warm again with highs likely in the mid to upper 70s. Luckily dewpoints will be lower behind the cold front leading to not quite as muggy and swampy feeling. HIGH RISK of rip currents and a high surf advisory remains in effect. PLEASE STAY OUT OF THE WATER! Just because it is sunny does not mean it is safe to go into the Gulf. BB/03

Short Term - Sunday Night Through Tuesday Night
A weak frontal boundary will sag into SE MS and SW AL late Monday night into Tuesday. This boundary will then stall over the area in zonal upper level flow. This will bring rain chances back into the area late Monday night through the day on Tuesday.

Overnight lows will trend cooler than normal Sunday night with upper 40s to lower 50s expected inland and mid 50s to low 60s expected near and along the Gulf coast. Lows will trend warmer Monday night with mid to upper 50s anticipated over inland locations and low to mid 60s closer to the coast. Mostly sunny conditions Monday will help afternoon temperatures rise to near 80 along the coast and low to mid 80s inland. Highs on Tuesday will be slightly cooler in the upper 70s and low 80s due to increasing clouds. /13

.EXTENDED TERM /Wednesday Through Saturday/...The extended remains unsettled as the stalled boundary remains draped over the area with weak passing shortwave aloft in the semi-zonal flow. Global models differ on the exact timing, however at least scattered showers and thunderstorms can be expected at times through much of the week. Not much change in temps expected through the period with highs in the low to mid 70s. Lows will be in the low to mid 50s inland to around 60 along the coast. /13

Marine
Onshore flow has weakened with light to occasionally moderate flow continuing tonight.

Seas will slowly subside. BB/03
