TUESDAY Update:  Lots of PM Storms This Week – Watching the Tropics

Good Morning!  Here’s my brief video forecast discussion.     

CLIMATE DATA:    Yesterday’s high in Montgomery was 91, with a Heat Index as high as 102. Morning low 75.  Normal High/Low 94 and 72.  Rainfall:  0.72. (East Montgomery rainfall 0.28”)  Sunrise at 6:06 AM.  Sunset 7:36.

TODAY:   Storms will tend to be rather numerous again today, especially this afternoon & this evening. Scattered to numerous, but random showers & thunderstorms.  Locally heavy downpours in spots.  Storms fade out overnight High today 91   Low tonight 72.   

Thunderstorm season continues.  Like yesterday, the hi-res Future Radar models are vastly underdoing the activity.  Radar is likely to be much more lively than this. 

NEXT FEW DAYS:  Scattered to numerous, but random showers & thunderstorms through Thursday, at least. Locally heavy downpours.  Storms start to thin out in number by Friday & Saturday.  More widely scattered.  Highs 90-92 each day.  Lows at night in the low 70’s. 

An upper trough of low pressure will continue to promote the better than normal rain chances at least through Thursday.


TROPICAL OUTLOOK: The Area of Interest in the Tropical Atlantic has been promoted. Say hello to Invest 97-L. This promotion allows additional tropical model runs and additional satellite scrutiny. NHC: 40% medium chance of development to a tropical cyclone next 5 days.

Many tropical models indicate this system is likely to become Tropical Storm Danielle.  Couple models make it a Hurricane in the next 120+ hours.


The annual Perseid meteor shower is approaching its peak, and you can enjoy the event live online. 

The 2022 Perseid meteor shower is expected to peak between Aug. 11 and 12. However, the bright moonlight from August’s full Sturgeon Moon on Aug. 11 will complicate viewing the meteor shower’s peak, which is why the Virtual Telescope Project is hosting a live webcast on Aug. 9, before the moon reaches peak brightness. 

“Because of the full moon on the night of their peak, we will run this live feed two days earlier, so our satellite will be below the horizon, with still a very good number of meteors!” Gianluca Masi of the Virtual Telescope Project wrote
