Isolated Showers And Hot Today
Isolated rain showers are possible today, mainly across our southwestern counties in Alabama. Expect highs to remain seasonable with highs in the upper 80s to low 90s today. Better chances of rain and thunderstorms begin tomorrow with added moisture from the Gulf of Mexico. Of course, these storms will be diurnally driven and should dissipate in the evening hours. We will continue to watch the tropics over the next few days as tropical storm Cristobal is likely to form later today. Most computer models have the tropical system meandering around the Southern portions of the Gulf of Mexico. Closer to home, high clouds from this system will add more cloud cover to our skies,locally. Otherwise, Summer afternoon thunderstorms and rain showers will be the norm later into this week.
