Good Saturday evening, or should I say soggy evening? After a dry start for most this morning, showers and storms progressively developed throughout the day. Areas further north, including Jasper received large amounts of rain, while other areas like here in Tuscaloosa only experienced quick downpours because storms were rapidly progressing through.
Tonight, showers and storms will gradually come to an end and some clouds will remain as temperatures drop into the mid 70’s. Watch for patchy fog late tonight and early tomorrow morning. Sunday wraps up the weekend with temperatures still remaining very hot as another batch of showers and storms develop in the afternoon.
Next work we starts with similar conditions Monday as we experience during the weekend with storms developing in the afternoon, but as we transition through Tuesday and Wednedsay, rain chances slowly drop, but temperatures will be back on the rise, as well as heat indexes reaching the triple digits.
Later in the work week, rain chances increase again for the afternoons, but temperatures will continue to remain hot, and the forecast will remain that way, into next weekend.
Taking a look at the tropics, the first tropical disturbance approaching the Carribbean has increased in size some, growth will continue to be limited because of its rapid movement and location in non-favorable waters. The current worry with this system is what will happen when it enters into the calmer, warmer water of the Carribbean Sea. Eyes will definitely be kept on the system over the next twenty-four hours. The second system, currently moving further into the Atlantic, has weakened some. Some growth may still result over the next twenty-four to fourth-eight hours, before it enters into less favorable waters and an area of upper level winds, which tears tropical systems apart.
