INCREASING RAIN CHANCES TODAY & WEDNESDAY… Rain chances are increasing today and tomorrow as a big ridge of high pressure moves away from our local area. The thunderstorms that are around today may linger well into the evening hours similar to last evening. High temperatures will again be in the mid-90s today with heat index values near 105 this afternoon. We’ll call it a 30-40% chance of showers and storms today with increasing rain chances for the remainder of the week.
FEW STRONG STORMS TODAY… Widespread severe weather is not anticipated today or in the next few days. Per our usual in the “dog days” of summer, some of the thunderstorms that pop up today will produce heavy rain and dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning. Small hail and gusty winds could happen in the strongest storms today. We note the tornado risk remains virtually zero today.
LOW PRESSURE WELL EAST OF BERMUDA… A non-tropical area of low pressure continues to produce cloudiness and thunderstorms about 1,000 miles east of Bermuda in the open waters of the Atlantic Ocean. This stake will NOT affect Alabama or northwest Florida and will likely never come close to North America. The National Hurricane Center says there is a 30% chance that this system develops into a tropical storm as it moves north. The remainder of the tropics remain quiet.
