The stage is set for another day of widespread showers and storms as a frontal system edges southward. I’ll show you a very active and colorful Future Radar. What about the weekend? Will we still be dodging frequent raindrops? I have “tweaked” the rain chances..and we’ll look well into next week as our pattern begins to change again. In the tropics, Tropical Storm Kirk is the main story. We’ll look into Kirk’s future track.
That front parked in north Alabama will be a big player today as it eases southward to the coast by Friday morning. It will be the focus for widespread showers and storms again today. Locally heavy downpours.
Over the weekend storms will still be roaming around, but they will thin out in number as upper level high pressure builds back over the region. Temperatures will be hotter again. This trend will continue well into next weekend.
The Tropical Weather Outlook map from NHC is a little bare this morning. We don’t care about Post Tropical Storm Leslie. Tropical Storm Kirk is the focus.
Tropical Storm Warnings continue as Kirk heads for the Caribbean Islands today. Kirk may encounter a hostile environment over the Caribbean and weaken over the next several days.
If Kirk survives, could it some day be a problem in this part of the world? Too early to say.
