FRIDAY UPDATE:  Nice Air Will Fade Soon – Heat, Humidity & Storms Will Return

What a beautiful weather pattern we have been enjoying!  Montgomery’s morning low was 60, after 86 yesterday afternoon.  But, the key to comfort has been the dewpoints which have been in the 50’s!   That’s nice air!   Unfortunately, that will be going away soon.  Enjoy today, because tomorrow dewpoints will return to near or above 70 by evening.  The “Muggies” are returning.  Plus, rain chances will start to escalate.  Scattered storms Sunday will become more numerous next week, especially by Tuesday through Thursday. All good things must come to an end.  Tropical air will return.

I’m here at an AMS Weather conference in San Diego, where yesterday’s high was 71, at this morning’s low was 64.  It’s going to be hard to return to the reality of Alabama humidity this weekend.

TODAY:  Sunshine.  Low humidity.  Comfortable.  High 87.  East wind 4 to 8 mph.   Low tonight 63.

Current set-up.   The Nice air, with lower humidity will retreat, but southwesterly winds will bring in all that tropical air which is lurking just off the coast.

NEXT FEW DAYS  Heat, humidity and rain chances will return.  Scattered storms Sunday.  Storms become more numerous Monday through Thursday and beyond.

Next week, an approaching upper trough of low pressure will interact with Tropical Moisture to set off widespread showers and storms, most numerous during the heat of the day,

BEACH FORECAST:  The really, really nice Beach weather of the last few days will start to evolve.  Tropical air returns, and hit or miss storms will be back over the weekend.

I will have another forecast update tomorrow morning.  Enjoy another comfortable day today…  Its about to go away.  This is the final full day of the weather conference in San Diego.  I’ll return to Alabama over the weekend.
