BETTER NEWS!: Nice Weather Break Ahead

How does this sound to you?  Mostly sunny, lower humidity, cooler nights…no rain in the forecast for a few days..  Sound good?  It’s about time right?

A “cool” front, along the I-85 corridor, is sliding southward.  Better shower chances will be confined mainly to the southern counties and near the coast today.

Behind the front, drier air filters in.  I think you will really like the first 3 days of the week ahead, before that regular summertime pattern returns late week.

Highs will be confined to the 80’s, and lows at night will be in the mid 60’s  I think the BEST thing is lower dewpoints.  Our dewpoints for the last week have been in the low to mid 70’s.  Simply oppressive.  Next 2-3 days, dewpoints fall to the low to mid 60’s.  That’s a big improvement.

The front reaches the coast later today and you will start to really feel a difference by tonight and tomorrow.

LOOKING AHEAD:  That typical summertime pattern returns late week, around Thursday, and It’ll be around for the long 4th of July weekend, with good but of sun, mixed with clouds and scattered random, mainly afternoon & evening storms.  Humidity returning with highs around 90 and lows in the low 70’s  Standard summertime in Alabama.  BUT, I don’t see any storm systems and certainly nothing out in the tropics for the next several days.

Here’s a peak at thew European model forecast (ECMWF), next 10 days.

It will be nice to dry out for a few days.  Some of us have had nearly 2 feet of rain since the beginning of May!  Have a great Sunday.  I’ll have a complete video for you in the morning.  My alarm goes off at 2.  Your video will be online at about 4:45.
