One More Dry Day

AMAZINGLY NICE WEATHER: Today’s weather can’t be beat for June in Alabama. It is not hot, hazy, and humid. We have a deep blue cobalt sky, comfortable temperatures, and low humidity levels. The temperature this morning dropped to 48 degrees at Hamilton, Fort Payne, and Black Creek, and all other reporting stations over the northern half of the state were in the 50s. Temperatures this afternoon are in the 80s. The sky will stay fair tonight.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: Tomorrow will be mostly sunny an a bit warmer with a high in the upper 80s. Then, on Sunday, the sky will be partly sunny, and we will bring in a chance of widely scattered showers and thunderstorms by afternoon as moisture levels rise. Sunday’s high will also be in the upper 80s for most places.

NEXT WEEK: A rather moist airmass will park over Alabama next week, meaning the daily risk of “scattered, mostly afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms”. Odds of any one spot getting wet daily will be in the 40/50 percent range, and highs will be in the 80s. This is your classic summer pattern of airmass thunderstorms, and there is no way of knowing in advance exactly when and where they will pop up.

TROPICS: All is quiet across the Atlantic basin, and tropical storm formation is not expected over the next 7 days.

ON THIS DATE IN 1972: A tropical depression developed from the interaction of a polar front and an upper trough over the Yucatán Peninsula…. it would go on to become Hurricane Agnes. The hurricane eventually made landfall near Panama City, Florida late on June 19; it was, at the time, the costliest hurricane to hit the United States in recorded history. In Florida, Agnes caused a significant tornado outbreak, with at least 26 confirmed twisters, two of which were spawned in Georgia. The tornadoes and two initially unconfirmed tornadoes in Florida alone resulted in over $4.5 million in damage and six fatalities. At least 2,082 structures in Florida suffered either major damage or were destroyed.
