Weekend Forecast Updated – THURSDAY Video

Good Morning!  The atmosphere is primed, and rain chances are going up.  There will be a wealth of showers and storms around today and tomorrow.  I’ll show you future radar.  If you have big weekend plans and you’re about the rain chances, I’ve made a few changes in the forecast.  Perhaps not quite as many storms as we once thought..  I will walk you through the forecast through the weekend and beyond for here and the Gulf Coast Beaches, on your Thursday morning personal weather briefing.

 

The atmosphere is primed.  The stage is set for a better than normal chance of showers and storms today.  Couple of the storms could feature 40 mph wind gusts and dangerous and frequent cloud to ground lightning.

Rain chances spike at 60% Friday, but there’s new evidence that the number of storms will thin out this weekend.  I may lower the weekend rain chance lower in future forecasts.

Right now I have a fairly respectable 50/50 chance of random storms Friday and Saturday and a smaller chance Sunday, down on the Gulf Coast.

One of the best meteor showers of the year will be this weekend, peaking on Saturday and Sunday night, after Midnight, if the clouds cooperate.  The Perseid Meteor Shower.

Truly excellent ISS Flyover Saturday, almost straight overhead and very bright, starting at 8:03PM  Set a reminder on your phone.  It never dissapoints.
