Central AL Forecast: Scattered Weekend Storms; Tracking The Tropics


This weekend looks about the same, but with scattered showers and storms both today and Sunday. Expect highs to sit in the low and mid 90s. 

To start next week, little change to the flow in the atmosphere will prompt a similar forecast. Scattered showers and storms with temperatures in the low and mid 90s for highs will persist. There is indication that an upper-level trough and front could dive into the Deep South by midweek. This would bump our rain chances up and drive our temperatures down a bit for Wednesday and Thursday, but it’s too early to nail down specifics. Stay tuned to the forecast as we get closer. 

In the Tropics: We’ve got two tropical cyclones of interest this morning; Tropical Storm Hanna in the Gulf of Mexico is still forecast to impact the Gulf coast of Texas with lots of rain and wind this weekend. Hannah could become a hurricane tonight or tomorrow morning. Whether it’s a hurricane or strong tropical storm, it will still drop plenty of rain across south Texas.
Tropical Storm Gonzalo is weakening. It’s unlikely Gonzalo will be an impact for us.
