GORGEOUS MONDAY; STORMS BY THURSDAY… Our streak of nice, sunny days is set to continue on this Monday with high temperatures approaching 80 in most spots this afternoon. Our next weathermaker will move through on Thursday, when we have an 80-90% chance of showers and thunderstorms. Shortly after this video was produced this morning, models certainly seem to be ramping up the idea for parameters to be a bit more favorable for a few strong to severe storms on Thursday. Let’s look at details…

SUNNY TODAY & TUESDAY… No weather issues to speak of today, tonight, or tomorrow, other than areas of patchy dense fog being possible in the morning hours. High temperatures this afternoon will peak in the low-80s with overnight lows by 6AM Tuesday being around 55. A big area of high pressure will keep us mildish and dry through Wednesday morning.

FEW SHOWERS LATE WEDNESDAY… Showers, with maybe a few embedded thunderstorms, will spread eastward from Mississippi in the P.M. hours of Wednesday. No doubt that the greater rain chances will almost certainly be on Thursday, however.

FEW STRONG STORMS THURSDAY… We’ll be able to get more specific in the next few days as more model guidance continues to pour in, but there is at least some chance that a few strong to severe thunderstorms could move through our area on Thursday. Some model scenarios point to a squall line moving from northwest to southeast across our area, mainly during the morning hours of Thursday. The concerns, if that risk materializes, would be damaging straight line winds and brief, spin-up tornadoes. Again, too early to know exactly what the risk is at this point… We’ll be monitoring the situation closely over the next few days. Be sure to check back with me throughout the week about this evolving severe weather potential.

ANOTHER NICE WEEKEND AHEAD… Storms will be gone by late Thursday, setting the stage for another glorious weekend across Alabama and northwest Florida. High temperatures will again be around the 70 degree mark with morning lows in the 40s.

OSCAR STAYS AWAY… Oscar strengthened into a hurricane in the open waters of the central Atlantic Ocean on Sunday evening. No land impacts are expected as the system moves slowly westward today and tomorrow before moving rapidly northeast and out to sea later this week.

TROPICAL UPDATE… The rest of the tropical Atlantic, including the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico, remain quiet. The 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season officially ends November 30, although we note that activity should ramp down considerably over the next few weeks.
