Feelin’ Like Summer (10:55PM 5/27/2016)


We’ve settled into a typical summer-like pattern across central Alabama. Temperatures will consistently be near or above 90 degrees in the afternoon in each of the next seven days. Morning lows will fall to near 70 around 5AM each day.

Tropical Depression Two (likely to become Tropical Storm Bonnie in the hours or days ahead) won’t have any direct effects on our daily weather… The storm will likely impact the Carolinas as a minimal tropical storm in the days ahead.

Memorial Day will be warm, perhaps with a few isolated showers in the afternoon and evening hours… Very typical for a late May day here in central Alabama.

Enjoy the evening!

Tropical Depression Two Forms (8:40PM 5/27/2016)

The National Hurricane Center has initiated advisories on Tropical Depression Two, located in the western Atlantic Ocean east of Florida. The system will likely become a tropical storm in the hours or days ahead before a potential U.S. landfall along the South Carolina coast.

NHC expects the system to intensify, but only slightly. Maximum sustained winds are near 35mph right now. Maximum winds are forecast to reach 45mph by tomorrow (Saturday, May 28) before landfall.

Hurricane Alex happened in January in the eastern Atlantic Ocean, well away from land. If Tropical Depression Two intensifies into a tropical storm, it will be deemed Tropical Storm Bonnie.

We’ll be closely monitoring this system… No direct effects are likely for Alabama.

Join me tonight for WVUA23 News at 10 for the very latest on this system.
