SUNDAY UPDATE:  Elevated Rain Chance Continues – Scattered to Numerous Showers/Storms

Good Morning!   And, hello from Pittsburgh, where meteorologists from around nation have gathered for the our annual Nation Weather Association Conference.  Here is a brief video forecast discussion from Pittsburgh.

CLIMATE DATA:    Yesterday’s high in Montgomery was 93. (Heat index 102)  Morning low 72.  Normal High/Low 94 and 71.  Rainfall: 0.53. (My rain gauge in East Montgomery had 1.11”)  Sunrise at 6: 14 AM, Sunset 7:23.  

TODAY: Much like yesterday. Limited sunshine.  High upper 80’s.  Again today, there will be a generous supply of showers and storms, just about anytime, but especially in the afternoon & evening.  Some storms will get locally heavy downpours.    Low tonight 72. 

Future radar on the hi-res models suggests the action will start early and last well into the evening hours.

NEXT FEW DAYS:   There will be a generous chance of random showers & storms daily at least through Tuesday.  Highs will be held down by clouds and showers to the 80’s.   Lows in the low 70’s.    Not quite as many storms by Wednesday through Friday.


In the western Gulf … The remnants of PTC 4 is bringing heavy rain to coastal Texas.  The system came ashore near the Texas/Mexico border last night.  It’s now just an open tropical wave.   It is still producing heavy rain this morning. 

Elsewhere in the tropics, a Tropical Wave is coming off the African coast.   Area to Watch in the Tropical Atlantic with a 20% chance of development in the next 5 days.

The EURO model suggests to Tropical Atlantic will come alive in the next 10 days. 

I’ll have another Blog update in the morning from here in Pittsburgh at the National Weather Association Conference.  Have a nice weekend!
