Midday Nowcast: Heat, Humidity, and Daily Storms

2 min read

HOT, HUMID, SOME STORMS: Little change in the day to day forecast this time of year; the days feature a mix of sun and clouds and are featuring afternoon highs on either side of the 90° mark. Lots of heat and humidity provides plenty of instability that will fuel scattered mostly afternoon and evening showers and storms. These are totally random, developing mostly between 2PM-10PM on a daily basis, and unfortunately it is near impossible to identify the placement and timing of the afternoon storms in advance…you just have to watch radar trends. Also, these storms can pack a punch and often produce intense tropical downpours, frequent lightning, hail, and gusty winds, and on occasion may require a severe thunderstorm warning. Rain chances this time of year are typically in the 40-50% range.

IN THE TROPICS: Tropical Storm Alex is moving by Bermuda today and will continue out to sea, not impacting any other land areas. For the rest of the Atlantic Basin, all is quiet, with no tropical cyclone development expected through the weekend.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: Showers and storms become numerous Saturday as an upper trough approaches and weak surface front approaches the region. It won’t rain all day, but the radar will be active, especially during the afternoon and evening hours. The sky will be occasionally cloudy with a high in the low to mid 80s. Sunday looks like a drier day with a good supply of sunshine and only isolated showers around. The high Sunday will be in the mid to upper 80s.
