2 min read

DRY DAYS: A big batch of dry air continues to move into the Deep South this afternoon. There is a small area of light rain over Houston County, otherwise the state is dry with a mostly sunny sky. Temperatures are below average; in the 85-92 degree range, and the humidity is low. Tonight will be clear with a low in the 65-72 degree range.

TOMORROW THROUGH SUNDAY: Look for mostly sunny days, fair nights, and a trend toward hotter afternoons through the weekend. Any showers will remain across far South Alabama, and even there there will be widely spaced. Highs will be in the mid 90s tomorrow and Friday, followed by upper 90s over the weekend. Humidity levels will remain fairly low for July, however.

NEXT WEEK: The weather continues to look generally dry during the first half of the week… then we will bring back the chance of scattered showers and storms Thursday and Friday as moisture levels rise a bit and the air becomes more unstable. Highs remain in the 90s, with lows in the 70s. See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.

TROPICS: A broad trough of low pressure located a few hundred miles off the southeastern U.S. coast continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions appear only marginally favorable for some additional development of this system over the next couple of days before it moves inland over the southeastern U.S. by this weekend. The chance of development here is only 10 percent, and the rest of the Atlantic basin is very quiet.

ON THIS DATE IN 1926: At the Picatinny Arsenal in New Jersey, lightning struck one of the explosives storage structures during a thunderstorm and started a fire. As a result, several million pounds of explosives detonated over a period of 2–3 days. This explosion not only structural devastation, 187 of 200 buildings destroyed but military and civilian casualties as well. Close to one hundred are injured as explosion spreads havoc within a radius of 15 miles in New Jersey.

ON THIS DATE IN 2005: Dennis made landfall near Gulf Breeze as a category 3 hurricane with winds around 120 miles an hour. The system continued to move northward, and was downgraded to a tropical storm as it entered Marengo County. Several counties across the state reported downed trees and powerlines, leaving a total of 280,000 people without electric power. Downed trees also left numerous county and state roads temporarily impassable. Winds gusted to 70 mph at Camden.

Look for the next video briefing here by 6:00 a.m. tomorrow…
