Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Mobile AL
404 PM CDT FRI MAY 27 2016

.NEAR TERM /Now Through Saturday/...Upper level ridging remains
in place across the Central Gulf Coast through the period. The ridge
does weaken somewhat on Saturday as an upper shortwave moves across
the midwestern states. However...expect continued hot and dry
conditions to continue. While there may be an isolated shower or
thunderstorm during the afternoon, the chances are not high enough
to include in the forecast and will leave it dry. Lows tonight will
fall into the upper 60s and low 70s. Highs on Saturday will climb
into the upper 80s with low 80s near the coast. /13

.SHORT TERM /Saturday night Through Monday night/...A weak surface
high pressure area will remain across the forecast area through the
Memorial Day Weekend as a tropical depression nearly the Southeast
U.S. coast becomes nearly stationary. As a result, maintained
isolated showers and thunderstorms in the forecast for both Sunday
and Monday afternoons across our inland zones northwest of I-65. Dry
weather conditions will persist elsewhere. Patchy fog development is
also possible late each night.

Low temperatures over the Memorial Day weekend will range from 65 to
70 degrees inland areas...with lower 70s along the immediate coastal
sections. High temperatures Sunday and Monday will range from 88 to
93 degrees inland areas...with mid 80s along the immediate coastal
sections. /22

.LONG TERM /Tuesday Through Friday/...The tropical depression will
continue to meander off the southeast coast through midweek. As a
result, isolated to low-end scattered showers and thunderstorms will
be possible during the daytime hours through the long term, mainly
during the afternoon and early evening hours. A gradual warming
trend will occur through the period with inland highs ranging from 90
to 95 degrees Tuesday through Thursday...with upper 80s along the
coast. Lows will range from 68 to 73 degrees with mid 70s at the
beaches. /22

&&

.MARINE...High pressure will remain from the western Atlantic across
the northern Gulf. This will maintain a light to occasionally
moderate southerly flow into the weekend. Light and variable winds
develop late into the weekend into early next week as high pressure
builds over the northern Gulf. A light west to southwest wind flow
develops early next week as the high moves east. /13
