Midday Nowcast: Marvelous May Weather

| May 25, 2023 @ 10:00 am

Today, we are seeing a good supply of sunshine, low humidity, and seasonable temperatures with afternoon highs in the mid 80s. Tonight, expect a clear sky with lows in the upper 50s and lower 60s. Tomorrow will be another mainly sunny day, with a few isolated showers possible over the northern third of the state, but most location will remain dry. Highs tomorrow will be in the low 80s. If you notice the haziness on the satellite image, or if you are outside, it is smoke associated from the wildfires ongoing throughout Canada.

IN THE TROPICS: A non-tropical area of low pressure is expected to form along a frontal boundary offshore of the southeastern United States coast within the next day or two. The system appears unlikely to become a subtropical or tropical cyclone since it is forecast to remain frontal while moving generally northward and inland over the Carolinas this weekend.

Regardless, the system is likely to produce gusty winds and dangerous surf and rip current conditions along portions of the southeastern United States coast late this week and into the weekend. Heavy rainfall is expected in portions of the Carolinas with hazardous marine conditions expected over the coastal and offshore waters where gale warnings are in effect. Formation chance through 7 days…low…10 percent.

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND: The low off the Southeast Coast will help our great weather continue across Alabama for the long weekend; it will be mainly dry, but we will mention the chance of a few isolated showers all three days, mainly during the afternoon and evening hours. Rain chances will be in around 20% these days. Expect a mostly sunny sky with highs in the 70s for many of us due to the low pressure east of us pulling down cooler air from the north.

NEXT WEEK: Much of the week looks fairly quiet with no major weather systems impacting the Deep South. There will be the usual chance of widely scattered afternoon/evening showers or storms. Heat levels begin to rise, and by the end of the week afternoon highs will be close to 90° and so will those humidity levels.
