ISOLATED STORMS TODAY… Widely scattered thunderstorms will pop up today across south Alabama and northwest Florida as daytime heat builds across the area. There will be fewer storms around today compared to the last few days, and there’s a high chance that some of us across the region will be completely dry throughout the day. High temperatures will peak around 90° in most spots.

TROPICAL SYSTEM APPROACHING TEXAS… A big rain event is ahead for the southern part of Texas. The latest Quantitative Precipitation Forecast has much of south Texas near Brownsville and McAllen in a rare 15”+ zone. This means that over 15 inches of rain could happen there over the next 5-7 days. The National Hurricane Center continues to indicate there is a low-end chance of “formal” tropical development as this area of low pressure moves toward the Texas coast. That really won’t matter too much, as the impacts for south Texas will still be significant regardless of the formal classification. No direct local impacts are expected in south Alabama or northwest Florida from this tropical system.

SEASONAL WEEK AHEAD… Typical June weather is upcoming for our region over the next few days. I’m not seeing ANYTHING on short- to medium-range models that would suggest tropical development that could impact our region, severe weather, etc. There will be a chance of pop-up thunderstorms each day, particularly in the afternoon and evening hours. Other than that, we remain in a pretty calm weather pattern. Good news!
