WEEKEND UPDATE:  Watching Gulf Low – Much Better Rain Chance

I hinted at this several days ago.  A weak tropical low will slide westward across the northern Gulf coast today through Monday,  greatly enhancing the rain chances for the next 2-3 days, particularly in south Alabama and on the coast.  You know the drill.  It won’t rain all the time, but, your odds of getting wet are becoming much better.

TODAY:  Showers and storms will be much more numerous today, especially this afternoon & this evening. Increasing clouds.  High 93.  Low tonight 75.

Here’s just one Future radar snapshot, late this afternoon, early this evening.

WATCHING THE GULF:  A weak Tropical Low in the northeast Gulf will greatly enhance the rain chance, for the next 2-3 days, as it migrates westward, just south  of the northern Gulf coast.  Locally heavy rainfall will spoil many beach adventures this weekend.  This system is probably too close to the coast for any future development into a depression.  But, it is worth watching, because it’s in our back yard.

 

NEXT FEW DAYS:   That Gulf Low will help boost our rain chance into the “likely” category today through Monday.  We’ll be back to a more “routine” forecast Tuesday, and on the Fourth of July, Wednesday.

BEACH FORECAST:  Read a book.  Go see a movie.  Go to your favorite seafood restaurant.  The Beach Forecast sucks, today through Monday, as a weak Tropical Low, just south of the northern Gulf coast, migrates westward.

 

Have a great weekend.  I’m still on the road in New Orleans.  Headed to Orange Beach later today.  I’ll keep you up to date on he weather.  Your next complete video will be Monday morning,  Here’s sunrise out my hotel room window.
