FRIDAY Update:  Elevated Rain Chance is Back – Be Flexible This Weekend

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

 
CLIMATE DATA:  Montgomery had a high of 93 yesterday, after a morning low of 68. Normal Hi/Lo:  92 and 70.  Airport rainfall: 0.00”    Sunrise: 6:21, Sunset 7:09.   

TODAY:   Today, the humidity and the rain chances will be higher.  That stalled front is migrating northward, and will be the focus for scattered to numerous showers & storms especially in the afternoon and evening hours.  High near 90.     Low tonight 70.   

That frontal system will “haunt” us through holiday weekend.  Better than normal rain chance everyday through Labor Day.  But, not a wash out.  Be flexible.

NEXT FEW DAYS:      The frontal system will “haunt” us through holiday weekend.  Better than normal rain chance everyday through Labor Day.  But, not a wash out.  Be flexible. Scattered to numerous storms, most numerous in the afternoon & evening hours .  Be flexile.  Have a Plan B.  Highs mainly in the upper 80’s to near 90.  Lows at night in the low 70’s.  Not much day to day change through Tuesday.  Fewer storms Wednesday.

.

This unusually wet pattern across the Gulf South will continue for the next few days.

TROPICAL OUTLOOK:   NHC is tracking three systems in the Atlantic.  Danielle is in the North Atlantic and has a chance of possibly becoming the farthest north major hurricane in history. Invest 91-L now has an 70% chance of development in the next 5 days.  It will likely stay in the open Atlantic and not threaten North America. Invest 93-L also has an 80% chance of development.  Invest 93-L in the far eastern Tropical Atlantic will very likely eventually become a tropical cyclone.  It will probably curve into the east Atlantic.

Danielle, is NOT quite a hurricane yet, but close with 70 mph winds.

Here’s the Euro Tropical Depression Probabilities over the next 10 days. Looks like trouble in the Atlantic will keep North America quiet through the Labor Day holiday weekend.

That disturbed area in the NW Caribbean needs to be watched for future potential Gukf of Mexico implications.

BEACH FORECAST:  Scattered to numerous storms.  The coast will be rather wet at times through the Labor Day holiday weekend. Elevated rain chance.  Scattered to numerous storms.  Highs in the 80’s.   Gulf water temperature at a season high of 88.  Moderate rip current risk from Destin to Panama City.

Thanks for reading this Blog this morning! This morning we are LIVE on the radio from 6 to 9 on NewsTalk 93.1.  Watch us on TV on CBS 8 and ABC 32.  I’ll have another update for you in the morning.  Have a great day!
