Good Morning! Yesterday the biggest story was heat & humidity. Montgomery got to 97, heat Index 106. Did you get rain? Radar was more active. There were some nice downpours. My buddy Ryan near Atlanta highway and Bell Road has .85”. Today, scattered afternoon & evening showers and thunderstorms, will be more numerous than yesterday. Still storms will be random. Not every town will get wet. Many will.
Monday through Thursday, storms will become more numerous. Closer to 50-60% coverage every day. Locally heavy downpours. Temperatures next week will be down just a notch. Lower 90’s daytime, lower 70’s at night.
There is now an Area to watch in the Tropical Atlantic.
