More Weekend Storms

Beryl In The Atlantic
One storm system over the Gulf of Mexico will move farther away from us this evening, but not before depositing a brief thunderstorm in a few neighborhoods.   Farther north, a cool front approaching the Midwest from the Upper Plains will continue to move southeastward, arriving in northern portions of Alabama and Georgia over the next 48 hours.    This cool front will stall to our north, so high humidity will linger.   However, said front will be close enough to enhance the intensity and duration of thunderstorms both days this weekend.   Before then, just a pop-up afternoon thunderstorm is expected Friday afternoon and evening.    If there is a greater risk of isolated severe storms, it would be Saturday afternoon or evening, so keep an eye to the sky.

Quieter weather will enter the picture once this northern cool front washes out early next week.   High pressure builds in, providing plenty of heat to go along with the humidity for most of next week.

Meanwhile, in the south-central Atlantic, the latest tropical system has formed.  It’s name is Beryl, and it is moving toward the Caribbean later this weekend or early next week.   Given the wind currents across North America, that storm should stay well to our south, but it is best to stay informed with the latest information at www.wltz.com/weather.
