Good Morning! We have another cold front approaching. There could be some isolated showers today and tonight ahead of the front. The front will move into southeast Alabama. Saturday will start out cloudy, and then sunny. The afternoon will become breezy and eventually cooler. Jacket weather nights return Saturday. Sunday and Monday’s highs will only be in the 60’s with 40’s at night. Several dry days are in out future. The next best chance of rain will be late next week. Here’s my brief forecast discussion.
TODAY: Much of Today will be cloudy. Cool again. High today near 70. The Showers risk today and tonight is very small. 20% at best. Low tonight 61.
Future radar this afternoon. The rain chance today is very small.
NEXT FEW DAYS: Saturday will start out cloudy, and then become sunny. The afternoon will become breezy and eventually cooler. Jacket weather nights return Saturday. Sunday and Monday’s highs will only be in the 60’s with 40’s at night. Several dry days are in out future. The next best chance of rain will be late next week.
Expect the coolest air of the season so far Sunday through Wednesday.
The next storm system is probably about a week away. Next Friday.
DROUGHT MONITOR: This week’s brand new Drought Monitor map (which does not include Wednesday night’s beneficial rain), now shows 79% of the state in at least a moderate drought, and 1/3 of the state in a severe or extreme drought, especially in SW Alabama.
TROPICAL UPDATE: In the Tropical Atlantic: Sean is a weak tropical storm again. NHC is still tracking Invest 94-L. It could eventually threaten Puerto Rico. This system could possibly become a hurricane. Eventually it will curve into the Atlantic. The next available name is Tammy.
SOLAR ECLIPSE SATURDAY: Clouds could hide the early part of Saturday’s eclipse. But, I’m confident, clearing is likely towards lunchtime. We’ll probably be able to see the lion share of the eclipse. The Partial eclipse starts at 10:39. Eclipse Maximum in Montgomery 12:10 PM. End Partial Eclipse time: 1:46 PM. Do not look directly at the sun. View through protective glasses only.
Montgomery will be close to the 60% coverage line.
