SATURDAY UPDATE: Familiar Summertime Pattern – Daily Random Pop-up Storms

  Good morning!  No big surprises in the forecast on this last weekend of June.  We are in a very familiar summertime pattern.  Warm & humid.  Sun/Cloud mix.  Daily random pop-up storms will be roaming around in the afternoon & evening hours.  It’s a forecast you’ve heard before.

    I’m very happy to say, we will not have to deal with anything tropical in nature this weekend.  (Last weekend was very unpleasant with Claudette, on so many levels.)

     This summertime pattern will roll on with little change through Tuesday.  I think by Wednesday and Thursday, there will be an uptick in our rain chance.  The random storms will be more numerous as June ends and July begins.

       We’ll also continue to monitor the SW Gulf of Mexico.

TODAY:   A good bit of sunshine, mixed with some clouds.  Hot, but close to normal.  High near 91.  Southeast wind at 4 to 8 MPH.  Standard summertime chance of a couple of “hit or miss”, random pop up storms here and there.  Most towns will stay dry.  Low tonight 72.  Tomorrow: practically a carbon copy, word for word.

Here’s a Future Radar Snapshot at 5:00PM. Not many storms to go around.

NEXT FEW DAYS:  Warm & humid.  Sun/Cloud mix.  Daily random pop-up storms will be roaming around in the afternoon & evening hours.  Storms will be more numerous by Wednesday and Thursday.

BEACH FORECAST:  Like the last 5 days, storms will be most numerous closer to the coast.  There is a decent chance you will encounter a storm from time to time.

Moderate Rip Current Risk (yellow flags) from Fort Morgan through Destin.  HIGH Rip Current risk (RED flags) closer to Panama City.

TROPICS:  Invest 95-L is the only X on the map, right now, in the tropical Atlantic. NHC gives this system a low 10% chance of development in the next 5 days.

Most models point this system toward the Caribbean Islands over the next several days, IF it can survive.

The EURO Ensembles give this system a 60% chance of developing into a Depression in the next 5 days.  Another area that needs to be watched is in the SW Gulf of Mexico.

I will have another Blog Update on Sunday morning.   Have a nice last weekend in June!
