NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Mobile Alabama 
411 PM CDT Sat Apr 18 2015 


Short term...(tonight through Monday night)...for tonight through 
Sunday...an upper low over the Central 
Plains begins to be absorbed by a longwave trough which evolves over 
the central states. A series of strong shortwaves will move across 
the region in the southwest flow aloft and bring high rain chances 
to the area due to both an mesoscale convective system...mesoscale convective 
system...expected to traverse the marine area...and associated with 
a surface low which develops over the lower Mississippi River valley 
and moves well north of the area. Storm scale interactions and 
sub-synoptic features have impacted the forecast such as the 
lingering area of convection over the marine area...a remnant of an 
overnight mesoscale convective system...and another mesoscale convective system which appears to be currently 
developing south of Louisiana. The latter mesoscale convective system has developed on a 
850 mb Theta-E ridge in a region of difluent 850-300mb 
thickness...and based on the placement of these features...expect 
the mesoscale convective system to translate generally eastward overnight and eventually 
into the northeastern Gulf. 


With abundant convection expected over the marine area through much 
of the period...this will significantly limit surface based 
instability over the land portion of the area and do not see much of 
a severe storm potential at least through Sunday morning. Better 
instability does develop later in the day on Sunday...but forcing is 
weaker or negative which will limit convective development 
sufficiently that am not expecting much of a severe storm risk on 
Sunday either as the 850 mb flow will be southwesterly along with 
the surface flow and not particularly strong. The exceptions to 
this are possibly over the northwest Florida Panhandle late tonight 
into early Sunday morning should the mesoscale convective system translate further northward 
allowing for better surface based instability...and will need to 
monitor. 


Expect currently neglible/isolated patches of light rain to become 
more widespread overnight as the Louisiana marine area mesoscale convective system 
strengthens...and as additional convection develops further inland 
over the area. Have gone with likely probability of precipitation for much of the area this 
evening...except for good chance probability of precipitation over south central 
Alabama...then categorical probability of precipitation follow for about the southern half 
of the area overnight with likely probability of precipitation elsewhere as the expanding 
mesoscale convective system advances further eastward. Quantitative precipitation forecast amounts looks to be increasing 
overnight mainly over the southern portion of the area...then the 
heavier amounts look confined to roughly east of I-65 Sunday morning 
as subsidence begins to work into the western portion of the area. 
Will have likely/categorical probability of precipitation roughly east of I-65 Sunday 
morning then chance probability of precipitation for the remaining portion...with chance 
probability of precipitation for the entire area Sunday afternoon. 


Have kept the Flash Flood Watch in affect across the area 
tonight...then have trimmed to watch to just be in effect roughly 
along and east of I-65 Sunday morning as quantitative precipitation forecast amounts are too low to 
support the watch elsewhere. /29 


Sunday night...a strong shortwave sweeps around the base of the 
closed low over the US/California border...pushing a surface front towards 
the lower miss river. Guidance is advertising significant dry 
slotting ahead of the front...with a decrease in probability of precipitation over the forecast area. 
With daytime heating Sunday allowing for a few storms to become 
strong to severe...am expecting this to bleed into early Sunday 
evening. Am expecting this activity to decrease with the setting sun 
and pretty much gone by midnight. 


Monday into Monday night...the shortwave sweeps northeast ahead of 
the border upper low...pushing the front across the forecast area late Monday 
into Monday evening...then stalling over the central Gulf by Tuesday 
morning. Surface high pressure moves quickly east from over the 
Southern Plains to over the lower miss River Valley...easing the 
Post-frontal winds (which am not expecting to be that strong with thedriving 
dynamics well north of the fa)...so a pleasant Tuesday morning is 
expected. Another seasonable warm day Monday is expected...with temperatures 
dropping to around seasonal Monday night. 


Long term...(tuesday on)...Tuesday through Wednesday...the upper low 
over the US/California plains menders eastward to over the Great 
Lakes...then stalls. The pieces of energy swinging around the bas of 
this system push the surface high from over the lower miss River 
Valley to off the Atlantic coast. A surface ridge remains over the 
norther Gulf Coast...with onshore flow returning to the forecast area by 
Wednesday evening. Tuesday and Tuesday night see temperatures drop to a bit 
below seasonal(70s Tuesday...50s Tuesday night)....but begin to 
moderate back up Wednesday....with temperatures in the 80s returning for 
Wednesday. 


Wednesday night through Thursday...a lobe up energy swirls around 
the base of the Great Lakes upper low...pushing a weak boundary 
towards...then partially over...with the boundary stalling over the 
northern half of the forecast area by Thursday evening. Continue to rebound to 
seasonably warms values with most of the forecast area under onshore flow. As 
the boundary works its way near and over the forecast area...rain and 
thunderstorms return to the area...with the best chance being 
Thursday. 


Thursday night through Saturday night...upper energy that had 
organized into a closed low over the Desert Southwest breaks down and 
gets drawn east by more energy sweeping around the Great Lakes 
system. Guidance agrees on a surface low forming and moving east 
Friday through Friday night. Disagreement is where. The European model (ecmwf) is 
advertising the low forming over the OK/Kansas border and moving east- 
southeast to over the MS Delta by Saturday morning. The GFS takes a 
more southerly/faster path...with development over Texas and moving east 
north of the northern Gulf Coast before ending up over the forecast area by 
Saturday morning. Up to this point...both are advertising rain 
continuing...with the GFS is advertising a cooler scenario...though 
than the European model (ecmwf). Have tried best to blend...with either scenario 
possible. 


Saturday and Saturday night...both are advertising the system's Post- 
system front moving across the forecast area Saturday and the forecast area drying out. GFS 
is advertising a stronger Post system push of northerly air than the 
European model (ecmwf). Have went in the middle fore the forecast...with the result 
being temperatures around to a bit below seasonal the last two periods of 
the forecast. 


&& 


Aviation... 
18z issuance...MVFR/VFR ceilings are expected for today with mainly 
IFR conditions tonight in low clouds and fog...then VFR conditions 
develop during Sunday morning. Light south winds become southwest on 
Monday. Will have prevailing light rain near the coast this afternoon 
and through much of tonight before ending on Sunday morning. /29 


&& 


Marine...a light to occasionally onshore flow prevails through 
Sunday. A cold front approaches the area from the west Sunday night 
into Monday and moves across the marine area Monday night with a 
light to moderate offshore flow in the wake of the front. An 
onshore flow returns by Wednesday as high pressure moves across the 
region in the wake of the front. Winds and waves will be higher in 
and around showers and thunderstorms. /29
