We will head to the Gulf Coast to begin a fairly busy week of forecasting here at Victoria-Weather.
At 1053AM, CT, Mobile was reporting a temperature of 62 degrees. Aiports a little further away from the Gulf than the downtown location were reporting a temperature in the low 70s. Overcast skies smothered the southeastern US, though there was a window around Mobile Bay, and downtown Mobile was reporting only partly cloudy skies. A pair of merging waves along the eastern Seaboard were responsible for the lingering moisture in Mobile.
There is nothing that will scour southern Alabama out through the day today, and the region will be generally cloudy with drizzle. Aloft, the jet currently runs through northern Mexico, and is shifting east through the Gulf. Through the day tomorrow, it will lead to continued instability and the threat for clouds and light rain tomorrow. As the jet moves into the Bight of Georgia late tomorrow, however, it will begin to lead to some cyclogenesis which, for one day, will lead to clearing. The low developing off the Carolina Coast will be weak, but it will induce a northerly flow through Alabama on Wednesday, and a dry, mostly sunny day. The northerly flow induced by this cyclogenesis will lead to a non standard day tomorrow as cooler air cycles in.

There is some disagreement over whether or not there will be rain in the near future for Mobile. We can all agree on a bit of drear for the city though. This satellite image won’t look much better by Thursday.
