THURSDAY Update:  Lower Humidity For Now – Storm-free for Several Days

Good Morning!  Did you enjoy Wednesday’s lower humidity?  Today will be very similar.  Lower 90’s.  Manageable humidity.   We’re going to start to heat up Friday and over the weekend.  Highs will be in the upper 90’s.  By Saturday & Sunday dewpoints will creep up to near 70.  Monday will be more humid.  We’ll be storm free for several more days.  Meanwhile, the tropics continue to wake up, and the next 10 days could even become more interesting.   Here’s my brief forecast discussion

TODAY:  Sunshine.  Manageable humidity, like yesterday.  High 93. West wind 5 to 10 mph.   Clear, comfortable tonight. Low 69. 

Take a look at the projected Dewpoints at 3:00 PM Today.  59 over Montgomery.  That would be wonderful.  If you want extreme humidity, go to Panama City with a dewpoint of 75.   

NEXT FEW DAYS:  Storm-free for several days.   Sunny days.  Mostly clear nights.  Upper 90’s  Friday through Sunday.  Near 100 by Monday and Tuesday.  Manageable  humidity levels through Friday.  Dewpoints creeping up near 70 by late Saturday and Sunday. 

TROPICAL UPDATE:  NHC is monitoring two Invests in the tropical Atlantic.  Invests 98-L and 99-L, both with a 60% chance of development in the next 7 days.  Plus an Area to Watch in the Gulf with a 20% chance of development.

  The EURO model continues to advertise a huge uptick in tropical potential in the next 10 days.  Very colorful.  Very active indeed. No doubt about it.  The tropics are waking up.

In fact, here’s the EURO Tropical storm probability for the next 10 days.

HURRICANE ANNIVERSARY:  I was 13 years old, when I tracked my first Hurricane.  I was living on Lake Erie near Cleveland, in Sheffield Lake, Ohio.  With a huge map of the Gulf of Mexico stretched across the floor of our Family Room, my Dad and I tracked 200 mph Cat 5 Hurricane Camille as it tracked toward to Mississippi Gulf Coast. It was Sunday night.  We listened all night to 50,000 Watt WWL New Orleans all night.  The storm reached the coast around Midnight.  We lost the radio signal at about 8AM on that Monday morning. 

Thanks for reading this Blog this morning! This morning we are LIVE on the radio from 6 to 9 on NewsTalk 93.1.    I’ll have another update for you in the morning.  Have a nice day!
