FEW STORMS THIS AFTERNOON; HOT DAYS AHEAD… About 1 in 3 of us will see rainfall before the end of the day as isolated showers and thunderstorms pop up this afternoon across south Alabama and northwest Florida. High temperatures will again rise into the low-90s with heat index values in the upper-90s.
CONSISTENT WEATHER AHEAD… July and early August often feature a monotonous weather pattern across our region, and the next few weeks look to be no exception. High temperatures will consistently be in the 90s with morning lows in the 70s over the next 7-10 days. This weekend will have seasonal rain chances as isolated thunderstorms pop up in the heat of the day each day. We’ll call it a 30-40% chance of rain now through Sunday, primarily in the afternoon and evening hours each day.
TROPICS REMAIN QUIET… No tropical storms or hurricanes are expected to form in the Atlantic basin (Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, and Gulf of Mexico) through the end of the week. That’s great news! The Atlantic hurricane season peaks on September 11 each year. Generally, activity ramps up in August. We’ll continue to closely monitor the tropical waves that come off the west African coast.
Have a wonderful Wednesday! Let me know if you have any weather-related questions or concerns.
