HOT DAY; P.M. ISOLATED STORMS… High temperatures are slated to rise slightly this afternoon compared to previous days. We’ll be in the low- to mid-90s across south Alabama and northwest Florida. Showers and storms will bubble up due to all of the heat content in the atmosphere across our region. Storm coverage will be greatest from 11AM to 7PM.
WEEKEND PREVIEW… More of the same! Rain chances will be slightly deflated from previous days this weekend, with about a 30-40% chance of storms in the afternoon and evening hours each day. High temperatures will be in the mid-90s. We note that the rip current risk at Alabama & NW Florida beaches remains slightly elevated, so if you’re headed to the beach today or over the next few days, be extra cautious in the water. Rip currents kill more people in our area than any other weather-related hazard, primarily due to vacationers not knowing about the hazards of rip currents.
Tomorrow is the first day of the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season. I’ll have more info about what you can expect in tomorrow’s morning video.
