From Chief Meteorologist Spencer Denton
* RAINFALL DEFICIT
HUNTSVILLE: -3.86” For the year
MUSCLE SHOALS: -6.10” For the year
REST OF THE WEEK: Unfortunately, we didn’t get as much rain this weekend as the models indicated, so we are actually saw a slight increase in our rain deficit over the weekend (see totals above). A weak front will sink just to the south of us today removing most of the rain chance for a couple of days. A few showers are possible through this evening otherwise, just partly to mostly cloudy today with highs in the low to mid 80’s. Wednesday and Thursday look dry and warm as highs reach the upper 80’s to near 90. We may see an afternoon storm or two on Friday as an area of low pressure sets up along the Atlantic coast.
THIS WEEKEND: Pretty typical weekend expected with highs in the upper 80’s and lows in the mid 60’s with a storm or two in the afternoon. No real major heat expected over the next 10 days and no big storms as the upper flow will remain to our north.
TROPICS: The tropics look fairly quiet but the GFS computer model is hinting at a disturbance in the northern Gulf of Mexico next week. Could be another soaker for the same areas that saw it last weekend. We will take a closer look as it nears.
TONIGHT: A Few Clouds. Low 65. Light NE Wind.
WEDNESDAY: Partly Cloudy. High 88. Low 63. Wind NE 5-10mph.
THURSDAY : Partly Cloudy. A Stray Shower High 90. Low 67.
FRIDAY: Partly Cloudy. An Isolated Aftn. Storm. High 91. Low 68.
WEEKEND: Partly Cloudy. An Isolated Storm in the afternoon. Highs mid to upper 80’s . Lows mid 60’s.
AT THE BEACH: Expect isolated showers and storms each day, mainly in the afternoon with about 5 to 8 hours of sun. Highs will remain in the mid to upper 80’s with lows in the upper 60’s to low 70’s. Water temps have settled in the low to mid 80’s.
