Near Term
(Now through Thursday) Issued at 357pm CDT Wednesday April 17 2024

Mostly dry and warm weather continues to prevail through Thursday for the forecast area. Extensive cloud cover today has kept high temps in the upper 70s and lower 80s, and conditions may be similar on Thursday (although maybe not quite as opaque). As such, we may see temperatures a degree or two warmer on Thursday than today, with more widespread low to mid 80s possible than today. A general zonal flow aloft today with a couple weak shortwaves rounding the periphery of the upper ridge located over the northern Gulf of Mexico through Thursday night. This should help to maintain the somewhat increased cloud cover across the area for the remainder of the near term period. As was the case today, an isolated shower or storm remains possible over far interior portions of southeastern Mississippi into far interior southwestern Alabama again on Thursday afternoon, but for no still no Probability of Precipitation in theNear Term - Rest Of Today Through Tonight
cast. Some patchy late night fog will again be possible tonight, especially over the southern half of the forecast area, some locally dense in a few locations but not expecting widespread dense fog. Lows tonight should primarily be in the mid 60s across the region. A moderate risk of rip currents remains across AL/FL beaches through Thursday, but although wind intensity doesn't pick up all that much, the prolonged nature of the onshore flow may require an upgrade to a HIGH Risk for late week, as some locations are beginning to report increased rip current activity today. DS/12

SHORT TERM AND Long Term (Thursday night through Wednesday) Issued at 357pm CDT Wednesday April 17 2024

Deep layer westerly flow is expected to setup through the weekend as several subtle shortwaves progress across the deep south. At the surface there will be a stalled boundary somewhere across the deep south. Deep moisture will be well in place across areas south of stalled boundary. Several rounds of scattered storms will be possible mainly Saturday and Sunday as two of the stronger shortwaves moves across the area. Sunday looks to be the stronger of the two systems and the furthest south thus expect rain chances to be the highest on Sunday. After the weekend, more northwesterly flow will move in once again drying us out through the remainder of the week as the front pushes offshore. Expect temperatures to increase through Saturday with highs likely in the mid to upper 80s across the area. The only thing keeping us from the 90s will likely be the increasing cloud cover. Lows will also float in the mid 60s before we cool off momentarily behind the boundary. Patchy fog will also be possible Thursday night and potentially Friday night.

Issued at 357pm CDT Wednesday April 17 2024

A light to occasionally moderate onshore flow will prevail through Saturday with a slightly stronger offshore flow developing on Sunday before shifting to offshore early next week. At this time, no especially hazardous conditions are anticipated for small craft through Monday. DS/12
