Thunder Today, Drier Tomorrow, and a Look Back at Ivan

Updated:
MOBILE, Alabama - This is the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Ivan's landfall on the Gulf Coast.  Ivan started as a tropical depression in the far eastern Atlantic and quickly intensified to hurricane strength.  By the time it was in the Caribbean, it reached category 5 for the first of three times!  It made landfall in south Baldwin County, but devastation continued far inland.  It eventually exited the US east coast, but the remnants re-formed and returned to the Gulf.  It made a second landfall as a tropical depression in Louisiana.

News 5 Chief Meteorologist has put together an in-depth look back at Ivan, called "Hurricane Ivan's Impact on the Gulf Coast."  It airs tonight at 6:30 pm on WKRG.

Today the Gulf is quiet, except for some regular-old thunderstorms.  There's a good chance that rain will find you this afternoon--60%.  High 90.  Lower humidity and fewer showers beginning tomorrow...and we'll keep drier air around for a few days.  Highs cool a degree or two to the upper 80s, lows dip to the 60s by this weekend.
