August 2015 is behind us. When you look at the averages for temperature, Mobile was exactly average (we started out hot but ended up cooler than average) and Pensacola was almost a degree warmer than average. For rainfall, Mobile only had half of typical while Pensacola was right at typical. Remember these numbers come from a single location so at your home, the story could have been very different.
Subtle changes for increased showers carry us into the Labor Day weekend. Tonight has calm wind and moderate humidity. Expect light fog late, as lows settle in the lower 70s.
Temperatures don’t change much through the work-week. Highs remain in the lower 90s but we’ll see afternoon thunderstorms return and increase from about 20% coverage tomorrow to near 40% coverage on Saturday. Days will otherwise be partly cloudy and moderately humid.
The Gulf and Caribbean are quiet. Tropical Storm Fred is moving into the central Atlantic where it will fade.
