Dry Days Ahead; Lower Humidity Levels

| September 3, 2013 @ 3:48 pm

An all new edition of the ABC 33/40 Weather Xtreme video is available in the player on the right sidebar of the blog. You can subscribe to the Weather Xtreme video on iTunes by clicking here.

RADAR CHECK: We have a handful of widely scattered storms on radar this afternoon ahead of a surface front near I-20. The showers are south of I-20, and most communities are rain-free. Lower dewpoints/drier air is moving into North Alabama following the front; the dewpoint has dropped to 61 at Muscle Shoals, and dry air be our weather story for the rest of the week.

RAIN-FREE: We project sunny days, fair cooler nights, and low humidity tomorrow through Friday. Highs in the 86-89 degree range, with early morning lows well down in the 60s. The cooler spots should see upper 50s. Showers will be confined to the far southern tier of counties, and even there they will be widely spaced.

OUR WEEKEND: The chance of rain is so small it really isn’t worth the mention now… expect partly sunny days and fair nights this weekend with highs mostly in the upper 80s. And, the dry weather should continue into early next week as our very benign weather pattern continues.

TROPICS: NHC has a 30 percent chance of the wave developing over the far eastern Caribbean; if by chance it does develop, it will turn north well east of the U.S. mainland due to the upper trough over the eastern part of the nation. Nothing at all threatening the Gulf of Mexico. See the Weather Xtreme video for the maps, graphics, and details.

WEATHER BRAINS: Don’t forget you can listen to our weekly 90 minute netcast anytime on the web, or on iTunes. This is the show all about weather featuring many familiar voices, including our meteorologists here at ABC 33/40. We will produce this week’s show tonight at 8:30 CT… you can watch it on “James Spann 24/7” on cable systems around the state, or on the web here.

CONNECT: You can find me on all of the major social networks…

I enjoyed seeing everybody at First Baptist Church of Mount Olive today… and also enjoyed my time at Regions Plaza in downtown Birmingham during the lunch hour as part of their severe weather readiness event. Look for the next Weather Xtreme video here by 7:00 a.m. tomorrow…
