SUNDAY UPDATE:  Slightly More Bearable Holiday Weekend Forecast – Showers Will Return This Week

Good Morning!  The airmass over Alabama is certainly more bearable.   Dewpoints have fallen to more tolerable levels, for now.  Even though we need rain, weekend outdoor plans will not be interrupted by showers.  In fact, I have removed the shower threat from the Labor Day forecast.

Spotty showers will return to the forecast, especially by mid to late week.  A cool front will approach the state by the upcoming weekend.  When will it make it through the state?  Hopefully, we’ll get a little heat relief behind the front.  More on that below.

TODAY & Monday:  Sunshine.  High 92.  Relatively bearable humidity levels.  Northeast wind 6 to 11.  Clear tonight.  Low 68.  Sunny & Dry Labor Day.  High 92.

NEXT FEW DAYS:   Widely scattered showers are back in the forecast for Tuesday.  Rain chances get a little better from mid to late week.

END OF THE WEEK ‘COOL FRONT’?:  That nice air that will dominate the central part of the U.S. this week may or may not make it all the way through Alabama.  The details, I’m afraid are still not clear.  The front will approach the state Friday and struggle to move through the state during the weekend.  Will we sample the nicer air behind the front.  Stay tuned.  We don’t know the answer yet.

BEACH FORECAST:   Spotty storms are possible today and Monday at the Beach.  Rain chances are higher by mid to late week.  The Rip Current forecast is LOW through Tuesday.

TROPICAL UPDATE:   NHC is tracking Invest 92-L and two areas to watch.  92-L and the system off Africa have a high chance of developing into a tropical depression or storm.

DENVER’S CRAZY WEEK: Wild weather in Colorado.  Denver’s high temperature Saturday was 101.  They will be in the upper 90’s today.  But, that block of cold air plunging out of Canada will bring a harsh and shocking change.  Look at the graph below.  There will be a huge temperature plunge Tuesday with snow!   There could be 6-7 inches in Denver and much higher amounts in the mountains of Summit county.  By Wednesday morning, lows near 20 are possible. That’s an 80 degree plunge!  Then, Denver could be back in the low 80’s again by next Saturday.  Crazy!

I’ll have another Blog update Monday morning.  Stay safe and well. Enjoy the rest of your Labor Day holiday weekend.
