SCATTERED STORMS TO BE A BIT MORE NUMEROUS THIS AFTERNOON… Keep tabs on the radar this afternoon as there will be more showers and thunderstorms around compared to the last few days. These storms will be primarily induced by the seabreeze and diurnal heating process that are all too often the primary drivers of these summertime storms. High temperatures will be in the mid-90s this afternoon. Cloud coverage will progressively increase this morning as some of those puffy, white cumulus clouds bubble up into cumulonimbus clouds capable of producing storms. The main concerns in the storms today will be gusty winds, cloud-to-ground lightning, and heavy downpours of rain. The tornado risk remains at or near zero. More storms are expected over the next few days.
POP-UP STORMS TODAY, TUESDAY, AND WEDNESDAY… The ridge of high pressure that has kept our area dry Saturday and Sunday will begin to break down and move away as we go into the next few days. This will allow more in the way of daily convection (aka pop-up storms) to form each afternoon and evening. It looks like storm coverage will increase as we get into Thursday and Friday, although we could have isolated storms around today, Tuesday, and Wednesday as well. I’ll have radar updates for you in the RedZone Weather app as needed. High temperatures will be in the low- to mid-90s with morning lows in the 70s each day.
TROPICS ARE QUIET… Tropical storm formation is not expected over the next 5-7 days in the Atlantic basin. The basin includes the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, and Atlantic Ocean. This is according to the National Hurricane Center in their tropical weather outlook.
APP… If you haven’t done so already, be sure to download the RedZone Weather app. That is where I post consistent radar updates on days when we have rain and storms around south Alabama and northwest Florida. redzoneweather.com/app is the link where you can download the app. Once you have the app downloaded to your iOS or Android device, be sure to visit the Alerts tab (lower right corner of the app), then tap the large, yellow “Alert Settings” button to customize the alerts you would like to receive straight from me.
