Area Forecast Discussion

1226 PM CDT Fri Oct 22 2021

.NEAR TERM /Now Through Saturday/...A weak surface cold front has
pushed its way across the area this morning, stalling out along
the coast. In its wake, drier air is gradually working its way
southeast, showing up well in surface observations over
southeastern Mississippi into interior southwestern Alabama where
upper 50`s to lower 60`s dewpoints are located. This drier surface
air gradually works its way across most of the area, eliminating
the lower 70`s dew points and bringing in middle 50`s to lower
60`s dew points for Saturday. With upper level ridging and surface
high pressure remaining in control of the weather, along with the
cold frontal passage this morning, expect dry weather to dominate
the forecast for the rest of today through Saturday.

The mildly interesting part of the forecast is the temperatures,
mainly in regards to overnight tonight. Temperatures this
afternoon have warmed into the lower 80`s for most locations, and
expect this to be the peak with a couple favored warm spots
managing middle 80`s. Tonight temperatures will drop quite a bit
with ideal radiational cooling setting up featuring light winds,
clear skies, and high pressure over the area. Have once again
decided to weight the MOS guidance heavily for overnight lows
tonight, generally featuring lower to middle 50`s for most
locations. Coastal counties will feature slightly warmer temps in
the middle to upper 50`s and perhaps some lower 60`s along the
immediate coast. For tomorrow expect a repeat of today for high
temperatures, with generally lower 80`s and a few spots managing
middle 80`s. MM/25


18Z issuance...VFR conditions prevail through the period. Winds
remain generally northerly in the wake of the front, except right
along the coast where winds remain southerly (mainly in northwest
Florida) today. Winds become light and variable overnight.
