Mostly Dry Today; A Few Storms For Southeast Alabama

2 min read

HOT SUMMER DAYS: Drier air will creep into the northern 2/3 of Alabama today, and most of the afternoon showers and storms will be confined to the southeast counties of the state. Where storms do form across Southeast Alabama this afternoon they could be strong with gusty winds. Highs will be in the 90s this afternoon.

Not much change through Wednesday; afternoon showers will be few and far between with highs mostly in the mid 90s.

Scattered showers and storms will become more numerous across Alabama Thursday and Friday as the air becomes more unstable, and moisture levels rise. The chance of any one spot getting wet these days is 30/40 percent, and highs will remain in the 90s.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: Classic summer weather continues. Partly sunny, hot, humid days with “scattered, mostly afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms” Saturday and Sunday. Highs in the 92-96 degree range.

And, no real change next week as we roll with a persistence forecast. Hot, humid, a few spotty showers and thunderstorms around on a daily basis with highs in the 90s and lows in the 70s. See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.

TROPICS: Short lived Tropical Storm Chris moved moved into Mexico early this morning with potential for heavy rain. Out in the Central Atlantic, Invest 96L has a high chance of becoming a tropical depression or storm this week. It will move into the Caribbean by the weekend.

Hurricane Beryl is a bit weaker this morning, with sustained winds of 120 mph. Still a dangerous, category three hurricane. It will move through the Windward Islands this morning, followed by a path across the Caribbean. Beryl will be just south of Jamaica Wednesday, and then is forecast to move into either Belize or Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula late Thursday night.

It will weaken to a tropical storm over land before moving into the Bay of Campeche Friday night. From there, long range model consensus suggests a track into Mexico, but some of the ensemble members introduce northward component of motion which could put South Texas in play. Still too early to call Beryl’s final destination, but we expect no impact for the Central Gulf Coast (Gulf Shores to Panama City Beach).

ON THIS DATE IN 2002: San Antonio, Texas recorded 9.52 inches of rain on this day to set a new record for its greatest rainfall for the entire month of July.

Look for the next video briefing here by 3:00 this afternoon… enjoy the day!
