POP-UP STORMS TODAY & FRIDAY; HIGHER RAIN CHANCES NEXT WEEK… Isolated thunderstorms will likely develop this afternoon into this evening ahead of similar conditions into the weekend. Next week, however, will feature more in the way of showers and thunderstorms as large upper-level ridge breaks down. High temperatures on this Thursday will be near the 90 degree mark in most spots. The tropical Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico, and Caribbean Sea are quiet as of now with no tropical storms expected to form over the next few days. More Thursday morning forecast details are below.

RAIN & STORMS LIKELY AT TIMES NEXT WEEK… An upper-level ridge in the atmosphere will break down early next week, allowing more showers and thunderstorms to develop each day due to prolific moisture in the atmosphere. Widespread severe weather looks unlikely, but there will be a chance for a few strong to marginally severe thunderstorms each day. Most of the showers and thunderstorms will happen in the afternoon and evening hours each day next week, however there is a real chance showers and storms may develop in the morning hours at times due to the ample levels of moisture expected each day.

TROPICS QUIET, OTHER THAN WEAK LOW PRESSURE NORTH OF BERMUDA… An area of low pressure located north of Bermuda in the open waters of the Atlantic Ocean has a very low-end chance (10% or less) of developing into a tropical storm over the next day or so as the system drifts south. This system will never be a threat to Alabama or northwest Florida, regardless of if formal development happens. From NHC: “A non-tropical area of low pressure, located several hundred miles south-southwest of Cape Race, Newfoundland, is producing limited shower activity but winds to gale force, mainly to the north of the surface center. Although environmental conditions are only marginally conducive during the next couple of days, some slight development of this system is possible as it drifts generally southwestward over warmer waters. The low is expected to accelerate northeastward and open up into a trough of low pressure by Friday to the south of Atlantic Canada.”
