RAIN & STORMS AT TIMES TODAY; LOWER RAIN CHANCES THIS WEEKEND… Showers and thunderstorms will again be possible across south Alabama and northwest Florida on this Thursday. I expect rain and storms to generally be a bit more scattered compared to the last few days. Yesterday, we had a large shield of rain develop across much of the region that persisted into the evening. Storms today will be much more isolated in nature, most likely. High temperatures today will be in the mid- to upper-80s. Some spots may hit 90 today for the first time in awhile. Elsa continues to rapidly move northeast across the eastern part of the Carolinas today. Fortunately, no new tropical storms are set to develop over the next few days. A few more Thursday morning forecast details are below.

SHOWERS AND STORMS LIKELY AT TIMES FRIDAY… We have today and one more day of elevated rain chances on Friday before we return to more of a seasonal rain pattern this weekend. Storms will again become more numerous on Friday in the afternoon and evening hours. High temperatures will be in the low-90s.

FEWER STORMS LOCALLY ON SATURDAY INTO SUNDAY… The air mass in place across our region will not be quite as moisture-filled compared to this week as we go into the weekend, meaning the overall coverage of showers and thunderstorms will return to much more seasonal levels. Pop-up thunderstorms will continue to be possible, but storms probably will not be numerous. High temperatures will be in the low-90s this weekend with morning lows in the low-70s.

ELSA RAPIDLY MOVING NORTHEAST… The center of Elsa continues to rapidly advance to the northeast today. Elsa will reemerge over water in the western Atlantic Ocean in the hours ahead. A Tropical Storm Warning extends from South Carolina northward into the mid-Atlantic states. A Tropical Storm Watch extends northward to Cape Cod in Massachusetts. Elsa will continue to rapidly move away from the United States this weekend as the system becomes extratropical and ultimately dissipates by Sunday.

NO NEW TROPICAL STORMS THIS WEEKEND… The National Hurricane Center mentions in their daily tropical weather outlook that no new tropical storms are expected to develop over the next 5 days. The long range (7-14 days out) models look fairly quiet at this point too. Good news!
