Morning Sun; Scattered Afternoon Storms

| July 5, 2018 @ 6:01 am

HOT, HUMID, SCATTERED STORMS: Not much change in the Alabama weather situation today; we begin the day with ample sunshine this morning, but scattered storms will fire up during the heat of the day this afternoon. Chance of any one spot getting wet is about one in four, and the high will be in the low 90s for most places. Another words, a standard summer day.

TOMORROW THROUGH THE WEEKEND: A surface front will approach from the north, and showers and thunderstorms should become more numerous tomorrow afternoon and tomorrow night. Then, the front will become nearly stationary near the Alabama/Tennessee border over the weekend, meaning rather unsettled weather conditions Saturday and Sunday. The sky will be occasionally cloudy with scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms both days; highs will be in the 80s with only a limited amount of sun.

NEXT WEEK: The front will dissipate, and an upper high will begin to strengthen across the Deep South by mid-week. This means a trend toward fewer showers and storms, and hotter afternoons. We could reach the mid 90s by the Wednesday… see the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

TROPICS: A disturbance south of Bermuda could show some slow organization in coming days, but if anything forms there it will merge with a frontal boundary and turn northeast… it is no threat to the U.S. Another wave about halfway between the coast of Africa and the Lesser Antilles is much better organized this morning, and a tropical depression or storm could form there within the next 24 hours. But, it will move into a harsh environment this weekend, and it will weaken, and probably dissipate. No threat to the U.S.
