Hot and Humid Start to September… Labor Day Forecast Update — 3:45pm

Sevenday_640

Happy Labor Day! Hope you are able to enjoy this hot and humid weather! Good time for a cook out! Tonight will be another warm and humid night with lows down in the low 70s, a couple of clouds will hang around tonight leaving us with partly clear skies.

For our short work week, the hot and humid weather will continue as our winds will continue to bring up moisture and warm air from the Gulf of Mexico this week. Tuesday will be partly cloudy with highs in the mid 90s. A couple of storms will pop up across Alabama, but nothing widespread or organized. As we progress through the week, the moisture pumped in from the Gulf will continue to increase and build bringing us better chances for scattered afternoon storms by the end of the week. Tuesday, Wednesday, and even Thursday will be mostly dry, but then the moisture will start to kick up storms across the state.

The tropics have some activity in the far southwestern portion of the Gulf of Mexico, a cluster of clouds and storms have crossed over the Yucatan Peninsula, and are expected to strengthen over the next 12-24 hours into a tropical disturbance, and possibly even a tropical storm. The track for the disturbance is to head northwest into southeastern Mexico, and at most, bring heavy rainfall to southern Texas, the Panhandle of Texas, and possibly New Mexico. No serious threats to the U.S. is anticipated at this time; however, we will continue to watch as the storm moves over the very warm Gulf of Mexico.
