MONDAY: Expect a WASHOUT all day Monday with scattered rain and storms continuing.  Highs in the upper 70s, low 80s.

TUESDAY: The rain coverage will not be as scattered and the duration not as prolonged as Monday, but decent chances of afternoon storms are still in the forecast.  Putting Tuesday’s rain chance at 50%. Highs expected in the mid 80s with high humidity.

REST OF THE WEEK: Wednesday is when we will finally begin drying out and seeing more sunshine!  Rain chance at only 20% for Wednesday. Most of us will just see partly cloudy skies.  Highs expected in the upper 80s, lows in the low 70s.

We’ll likely stay rain free from Thursday into Saturday.  Temperatures will be less summer-like, especially in the morning.  Lows will be a bit cooler in the low to mid 60s for the end of the work week.  Highs expected in the mid/upper 80s.

TROPICS: We have two active disturbances to watch in the tropics.  The first one closest to home is off the Atlantic coast of Florida, which now has a 70% chance of developing into a tropical depression sometime over the next 48 hours.  Regardless of development, this will stay AWAY from the Atlantic coast and harmlessly curve out to sea.

Our second disturbance has evolved into Tropical Storm Dorian, currently located East of the Lesser Antilles.  This storm will be tracking West and into the Caribbean over the next few days, possibly intensifying into a hurricane.  It’s way too far away for us to be concerned here in Alabama, but of course it’s something we’re watching!
