Weekend Heat Relief
A few lingering showers are possible tomorrow mainly across our southern communities, but through the day a nice surge of drier and cooler air will settle into the state. Temperatures will be cooler, as we are forecasting upper 80s to near 90. The real difference will be noticed in those humidity levels. Lower humidity levels mean more comfortable conditions for the state. Expect mostly sunny weather Saturday and Sunday. Nights will be cooler and refreshing, enjoy those lower dew points, it could be a while before we see them that low again.
TROPICAL UPDATE: A tropical wave located near the Yucatan Peninsula is producing disorganized cloudiness and thunderstorms from the northwestern Caribbean Sea through southeastern Mexico. Development, if any, of this disturbance should be slow to occur due to proximity to land while it moves west-northwestward at about 10 mph over the Bay of Campeche and southwestern Gulf of Mexico over the next few days.
SUMMER SOLSTICE AND BEYOND: Once again the official start of summer is on Monday at 5:34 PM CDT and the weather looks generally dry Monday and Tuesday with afternoon highs around 90F. Scattered showers and storms returns Wednesday through Friday, but nothing too widespread. Low 90s are likely on those three days; the most intense heat in the nation will remain to the west of Alabama.
Have a wonderful weekend!
