Bumpy Ride At Times This Weekend

Beryl And Perhaps Chris

A cool front approaching the Tennessee Valley will continue to shift southward into northern Alabama and Georgia this weekend before stalling.   This front will work with available high humidity to produce several thunderstorms.   Initially, most of the storms will be north of Columbus early Friday evening, but one or two will develop farther south into the wee hours of Saturday morning.

Thunderstorms will redevelop Saturday afternoon, so if you have outdoor plans, it’ll be best to take care of them by early afternoon.   Any thunderstorm this weekend can be accompanied by small hail, strong winds and torrential downpours.    While most of the storms on Sunday will occur in the afternoon and evening, there can be a thundershower in spots early in the day.

This front will eventually washout after Monday, allowing for more heat and an overall quieter time for most of next week.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Beryl is in the south Atlantic, headed toward the Caribbean early next week.   Also, an area of low pressure off the Carolina coast may become Chris this weekend.   While some of its impacts will be felt along the Carolina coast, it may stay offshore for several days.   Stay tuned.
