Forecaster: James Spann
HOT AFTERNOONS; ISOLATED SHOWERS: Not much change in our weather through tomorrow. Partly sunny, hot days with only isolated afternoon showers or storms. Afternoon highs will be in the 90 to 93 degree range; that is about five degrees above average for the first few days of June.
THURSDAY/FRIDAY: We expect to see an increase in the number of scattered showers and storms on these two days as a weak surface front approaches from the north, and an upper trough forms to the west. The rain won't be especially widespread, but hopefully a few communities will see a decent downpour or two. Otherwise, with mix of sun and clouds we project a high in the 87-90 degree range both days.
THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: We will maintain the chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms Saturday and Sunday, but it won't be a "wash out" with some sun at times. Best chance of showers will come during the afternoon and evening hour... the high Saturday will be in the mid 80s, with low 80s Sunday.
Still seeing some evidence of drier, continental air arriving next week with potential for lower humidity and cooler nights; temperatures could drop down into the 50s in cooler pockets by Tuesday morning.
AT THE BEACH: Mostly sunny days, fair nights on the Gulf Coast (from Gulf Shores over to Panama City Beach) through Friday with only a slight risk of a shower daily. Highs will be in the 80s on the immediate coast, and closer to 90 degrees inland. Scattered storms will be little more likely by the weekend, but you will still see a decent amount of sun both days.
