Near Term
(Now through Sunday) Issued at 356am CDT Sat April 13 2024

A dry northwesterly flow pattern aloft will prevail across the region through Sunday, keeping our area rain-free and under mostly clear skies. Warm days and relatively cool temperatures tonight will occur as surface high pressure builds eastward across the Gulf Coast. A LOW risk of rip currents will continue through the period. /22

SHORT AND Long Term (Sunday night through Friday) Issued at 356am CDT Sat April 13 2024

Generally quiet weather prevails during the short and long term from Sunday night through Friday. Upper ridging dominates the forecast through Tuesday night before we shift to more westerly flow aloft as a trough passes north of the region Wednesday. Wednesday afternoon into Wednesday night will have a broad, weak shortwave push across the area potentially aiding in the development of a light rain shower or thunderstorm over interior portions of southeastern MS into interior southwestern AL. Another shortwave will transit the area Friday embedded within the subtropical jet which could yield a shower or thunderstorm once again over interior portions of southeastern MS into interior southwestern/south-central AL.

The bigger story for the period will be a notable warming trend, with the warmest temperatures of the Spring season so far likely affecting much of the forecast area. High temperatures each day will likely rise into the lower to middle 80's, with Thursday being the hottest with spots seeing middle to perhaps even upper 80's. Overnight lows gradually follow suit, going from lower and middle 50's Sunday night to lower to middle 60's for Tuesday and Wednesday nights. A Moderate risk for rip currents will return Tuesday followed by a High risk for life threatening rip currents Wednesday as persistent southerly flow sets up on the immediate coast. MM/25

Marine
Issued at 356am CDT Sat April 13 2024

Light to occasionally moderate offshore flow becomes onshore this afternoon. This onshore flow will persist into the middle of next week. Seas continue to relax through tonight, building once again early to mid week. /22
