SUNDAY UPDATE:   Hot & Humid Father’s Day – Hot & Humid Father’s Day – Scattered Storms Become Numerous This Week

Good morning!  Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s out there.  It’s going to be a very hot and humid day.  We had 94 yesterday and we’ll be at least that warm today.  Showers & storms will become a little more numerous, especially by later on this afternoon and this evening.  And, the rain chances get a better and better over the next few days.  The week ahead will be rather humid, unsettled, and wet at times.

TODAY:  A very hot & humid Father’s Day.  High 94-96.  The heat index will range from 97-100.  Isolated storms possible after lunchtime.  The showers and storms will become scattered by late afternoon and this evening, before fading out tonight.  An approaching frontal system, along with afternoon heating, will aid in the storm development today.    Here’s a Future Radar snapshot of 4:00PM this afternoon.

A severe Weather  Risk covers much of the nation today, including a Marginal Risk over the northwest half of Alabama today.

NEXT FEW DAYS:  This week will be the complete opposite of last week.  An upper level trough of low pressure will aid in the storm development.  Radar will be active.  There will be a rather generous supply of showers and storms most days.  They will be random of course, and it will be feast or famine.  Some towns will get a lot of rain…others not as much.

THE TROPICS:  Except for a minor area to watch off the middle Atlantic coast, the rest of the tropical Atlantic, the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico is quiet.

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads!   I hope you enjoy your day.

I’ll have a complete video update for you tomorrow morning.

Stay safe and well. Enjoy your Sunday …
