SATURDAY UPDATE: Spotty Storms Today – Better Coverage Sunday & Monday

Good Morning!   We’re in to that familiar summertime pattern a little early this year.  Very humid.  Random, hit or miss storms each day.  Today will be similar to the last two days.  Some towns will get wet, others will stay dry.

    The odds of getting wet start to increase Sunday and showers and storms will be rather numerous by Monday and Tuesday.  The storms will start to thin out in number by Wednesday and Thursday.

TODAY:  Sunshine will be limited.  Mostly cloudy.  Humid.  High upper 80’s.  Low tonight 70.  Scattered, random showers and storms will be most likely in the afternoon and evening hours.  Here’s a late afternoon Future Radar snapshot.  Notice the most concentrated rain today will be in SW Alabama.

SUNDAY & MONDAY:  Showers and storms will become more numerous Sunday and especially Monday and Tuesday.  We’ll be on the wet side of an upper low over Arkansas. 

NEXT FEW DAYS:  Random storms.  Best rain chance Monday and Tuesday.  The number of storms will start to thin out by Tuesday & Wednesday, to a more typical summer pattern.  Highs in the 80’s. 

Rainfall amounts will vary quite a bit over the region. Take a look at the excessive amounts in Louisiana.

BEACH FORECAST:  Not nearly as nice as last weekend.  Scattered showers and thunderstorms could interrupt your plans from time to time.  The rip current risk is listed as low. 

THE TROPICS:  The tropics are quiet now, but the European Ensemble models suggest we need to keep an eye on the west western Caribbean and western Gulf in about a week to ten days.

I will have another Blog Update for you tomorrow morning.

Have a nice weekend!
