Getting heavy downpours for sure now. Ponding all over the place. Storm so far has given us a good ten or so bright flashes of lightning and decent rumbles of thunder.

More lightning just now and a brief bout of rain. Storms are forming in the Gulf and moving northward. A second batch of rain remains in Louisiana and Mississippi, so it appears we'll have more action later on tonight.

With the warmth this week, has been lots of morning fog that sometimes persists almost til lunchtime. Additionally the forecast of low to mid 70s all week has not panned out but one of the previous 3 days, the only day where the sun shone. Dense Fog Advisorys are common up here during the winter, but usually the fog is outta here by mid-morning.





Statement as of 6:04 AM CST on December 18, 2008

... Dense fog advisory remains in effect until noon CST today...

A persistent southerly wind flow off the Gulf had produced
widespread dense fog over southeast Mississippi... southwest Alabama
and the western Florida Panhandle. The dense fog will continue
through noon... with visibilities restricted to less than one quarter
of a mile over much of the region.

A dense fog advisory means visibilities will frequently be
reduced to less than one quarter mile. If driving... slow down...
use your headlights... and leave plenty of distance ahead of you.

Majorly soupy today with persistent fog throughout the morning. While heading east, some peaks of sun shone near Destin, but it was overall foggy until reaching Seaside. East of there, bright blue skies!

By 4pm, we got back into the Niceville area and the fog was in full force, and consistent through to Cinco Bayou. Tomorrow and Saturday looks to continue the dreary weather...

Fortunately this mornings fog burned off more quickly than the stagnant deck from yesterday. The sun is out, but now mid-level clouds are filling the sky.

Some views from earlier:

Despite a tornado watch being issued about 30 minutes before the front passed through, our narrow line produced just a few wind gusts at the onset, and a brief period of heavy rain. No thunder, no lightning, an overall disappointment for a frontal passage that is knocking us down 15 degrees. Only 0.18 inches of rain reported.

FWIW the storms that passed through last week were a bit better, a few flashes of lightning and rumbles of thunder. About a good 30 minutes of moderate rain.

Grass around here is showing color already too...

Cold weather is well entrenched over the upper Gulf Coast. Some of the coldest weather is forecast for tomorrow night, with lows dipping to around 19 expected. :icon_eek:



Statement as of 12:10 PM CST on January 15, 2009

... Hard freeze warning in effect from 11 PM Friday to 9 am CST
Saturday...

The National Weather Service in Mobile has issued a hard freeze
warning... which is in effect from 11 PM Friday to 9 am CST
Saturday. The hard freeze watch is no longer in effect.

By Friday night... the center of an Arctic high pressure system will
settle south to the Gulf Coast. This will result in lighter
winds... but much colder temperatures over the inland areas. In
fact... communities along and just south of Interstate 10 such as
Grand Bay... Theodore... Loxley... Robertsdale... Belforest... and areas
just north of Niceville may see temperatures drop into the upper
teens by early Saturday morning. Along the coast... lighter winds in
cold weather patterns usually result in conditions being a little
warmer along the immediate coast... and forecasters are expecting
overnight lows on the barrier island and beaches to be a little
warmer... dropping into the middle and upper 20s early Saturday
morning.
