Blistering Heat Again Today– Weekend Forecast Update – Friday Video

Good Morning!  Another day of intense heat today, after the hottest day of the year yesterday.  On this video, from the Alabama coast, I’ll update you on the increasing chance for those random storms today & over the weekend.  I’ll show you how the daily highs will slowly start to decline.  BUT, maybe another trip to the upper 90’s late next week?  Plus, the Beach forecast & the tropics.   Here’s your morning weather briefing on the road from Orange Beach.

More blistering heat today and over the weekend, but the PM showers/and storms will become a little more numerous every day…with a 30% chance today, 40% Saturday and 50% Sunday.

 

In the upper atmosphere, a “weakness” will promote better rain chances over the weekend, as the intense upper heat dome begins to erode.

Showers and storms will start to become more numerous in the beach forecast, as well.

The Euro model also advertises more heat returning next week, as the upper high rebuilds across the Gulf South.

 

 

 

Cluster of Storms Central Alabama

Attention Coosa, Tallapoosa, Lee and Elmore county.  Cluster of strong storms racing southward, could cause produce 40+ mph wind gusts, intense lightning and heavy downpours.  The cluster is heading south and will be affecting the I-85 corridor including the Montgomery metro area during afternoon rush hour.

Meanwhile, Montgomery as of 3PM has reached 98 degrees, hottest of the summer so far with a heat index of 103.  The storms will bring some heat relief.

Intense Heat – Dangerous Heat Index – Thursday Video

Good Morning!  More intense heat for a couple more days after blistering heat yesterday.  I’ve updated the highs and the projected heat index for you.  I have updated the weekend forecast just a bit for hear and the Gulf coast.  On this video, I’ll bring you up to date with new information and updated rain chances.  And, I’ll check the tropics for you.  Here’s your personal weather briefing for Thursday morning.

 

Yesterday and today.  The intense heat rolls on.  Today and Friday will be in the danger range on the heat index.  Slow down.  Take it easy.  Stay hydrated.   Make sure your pets have plenty of water.

 

Beach Forecast:  Rain chances will start to increase again over the weekend.  Not a washout, by any means.  Just more showers/storms around.

The Euro model indicating today and tomorrow are the hottest days.  Then PM showers return which helps knock the temps down just a bit, as a little weakness develops in the upper atmosphere.

Tropics are quiet now.  No systems that NHC is currently tracking.

 

Dangerous Heatwave Next Few Days– Wednesday Video

..Dangerous heat next few days… On this video, I’ll update, not only the expected highs, but also, the dangerous heat indices expected later in the week.  Plus, I had to “tweak” the weekend rain chances a little bit.  It’s a big weekend on the Gulf Coast. I have the updated Beach Forecast, and an update on 2 systems out in the tropics.  A lot of good information on an action packed Wednesday morning weather briefing.

The big Heat Dome covering America’s heartland is spreading eastward.  Dangerous heat on the way, particularly Thursday through Saturday.  Here’s that upper level, up at about 20,000 ft.  which will tend to hinder shower development, and will promote very hot temperatures, combined with  extremely high dewpoints which will set the stage for excessive and dangerous heat indices.

The computer models are printing out some pretty excessive high temperature numbers.  Here’s a peak at the Euro.

By the weekend, showers will creep back into the forecast as the upper high breaks down and a “weakness” develops in the upper atmosphere.

 

Beach forecast showing low shower threat through midweek, but somewhat higher rain chance this weekend.

 

Big weekend on the coast with the Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo on Dauphin Island and the Grand Opening of phase one of the new OWA amusement park in Foley.
