Good Tuesday evening to you! After some spots got a little rain today, we are going dry and conditions are becoming nice this evening. Temperatures will fall into the lower 60s late tonight as dry air takes over. The weak cold front is about to pass south of HWY 80 at this 10pm hour. Low humidity will continue to take over from the north tonight and on Wednesday. Highs will reach the upper 80s tomorrow, but lower humidity will make conditions feel a little more bearable.
The forecast will go very calm over the next few days, with highs in the upper 80s and lows in the lower 60s. Moisture levels will remain low through Thursday, but a south wind will develop on Thursday and higher dewpoints will surge into west and central Alabama. Higher dewpoints will make conditions feel very muggy on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We can expect mostly sunny skies through Saturday. While moisture levels will increase in time for the weekend, the chance of rain through Saturday remains below 10%. There is a 20% chance of a passing storm on Sunday; I expect most spots to stay dry on Sunday. Overnight lows will warm into the upper 60s to lower 70s by the weekend and early next week.
A cold front will try to reach west Alabama early next week. There’s a chance of scattered storms on Monday and Tuesday, but rain chances may increase as new model data comes in. Stay tuned for forecasting changes.
The beach forecast this weekend is looking fair. We can expect highs on Friday through Sunday in the upper 80s to lower 90s. There’s a risk of scattered storms each day, but I expect much of the weekend to remain rain free. This is the forecast for the Gulf Shores to Destin areas.
