High Heat and Few Thunderstorms

John

Even moderate humidity won’t mask the heat today.  High 96 near the coast and upper 90s north of Mobile.  A few thunderstorms late this afternoon–about a 20% chance that you’ll see rain.

Tonight will be sultry, with a low in the mid 70s and partly cloudy skies.

The chance of mainly afternoon thunderstorms will increase over the next few days–30% tomorrow and 40% Thursday through Sunday.  Our temperatures will ease back a few degrees to more seasonable low 90s Thursday and Friday before rebounding to the mid 90s this weekend.

An area of clouds and low pressure over south Georgia is moving into the Atlantic.  There’s a very small chance that this system will develop into something tropical, but it’s no threat to the Gulf Coast.
