Let’s get another forecast under our belt tonight, with a trip down to the Gulf Coast and Mobile Bay.
At 1256AM, CT, Mobile was reporting a temperature of 77 degrees with clear skies. An unseasonably deep area of low pressure over eastern Canada is extending a some what active boundary through the central US, touching off some late night convection well to the north of Mobile.
This slowly advancing boundary will provide a little more energy to a low level trough stretched from the southern Gulfstream southwest across north Florida. Somewhat isolated, that trough will be very active on Saturday, bringing heavy thunderstorms to north Florida, while a few storms will be possible over southeast Louisiana. Some late thunderstorms will develop as the northern boundary continues to work south towards Mobile, and at some point, there will be thunder around Mobile, regardless of the trigger. It will be broader instability on Sunday, with more widespread, though unfocused, showers and storms permeating the region.
