(Now through Friday) Issued at 1152am CST Thu Dec 7 2023
Approaching upper level shortwave energy brings increasing isentropic upglide tonight into Friday over a cool, very dry airmass currently over the Southeast. Precipitable h20 values around 0.2" start the day Thursday over the forecast area, with a slow rise during the day. Precipitable h20 values rising to around 1.3" over land portions of the forecast area by the end of the day Friday. The airmass south of the coast sees the moisture increase first, and with the airmass becoming more surface based late tonight into Friday, a bit of instability in the boundary layer will allow for light rainshowers to develop well south of the coast tonight, then spread northward over the northern Gulf coast through Friday. Models soundings show enough instability for thunder to increasingly mix in south of the coast Friday, so have added isolated thunder south of the coast for Friday afternoon.
Temperatures rise through the Near Term with the increasing southerly flow. High temperatures ranging from around 60 to the low 60s today rise to the mid 60s over northeastern portions of the forecast area to the low 70s over southeast Mississippi and Mobile County. Low temperatures tonight are expected to range from around 40 north of Highway 84 to the low 50s along the coast.
Increasing onshore flow Friday into the weekend will bring an increase in Rip Current risk. The risk become moderate on Friday night, then high on Saturday through Sunday. A cold front moving south across the area late Sunday into Sunday night will shift flow to offshore and drop the risk to low in the coming week. /16
