COOL, DRY, SUNNY WEEKEND… Mostly sunny skies are expected today, Saturday, and Sunday with cool temperatures across south Alabama and northwest Florida. We’re starting the month of November in the upper-30s and low-40s in most spots on this Friday. Temperatures will creep up into the upper-50s by the early afternoon hours. The southern half of our area will probably hit the 60 degree mark this afternoon, but that will probably be a struggle for locales farther inland. Cold, dry, stable air continues to filter in from the northwest behind the cold front that pushed by yesterday morning. Let’s look at your forecast details.
NEXT CHANCE OF RAIN ON TUESDAY… After the cool, dry weekend, our next chance of rain will happen on Tuesday as an area of low pressure moves by from west to east. We’ll call it a 20-30% chance of rain, for now. Severe weather looks unlikely with that system for now. We’ll keep you posted about this over the next few days.
QUIET WEATHER PATTERN FOR THE NEXT 7-10 DAYS… Cooler (compared to the last few weeks), more stable air will be in place across our region for the foreseeable future. This means that our weather pattern will be much more calm compared to the month of October when we had multiple rounds of strong to severe storms that produced tornadoes.
TROPICAL UPDATE… The 2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season will end one month from now, on the last day of November. Historically, November is a very quiet month for us in terms of tropical activity. The National Hurricane Center has written off what was Subtropical Storm Rebekah, located in the far northeastern corner of the Atlantic basin near the Azores islands. NHC is also monitoring a tropical wave about halfway between Africa and the Leeward Islands. There is a 10% chance that tropical wave becomes a tropical storm, but significant development is not expected. The Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea remain quiet.
