A Little Heat and a Few Thunderstorms.


A Little Heat and a Few Thunderstorms.

MOBILE, Alabama - Our final weekend of July is relatively quiet. By that, I mean the Gulf of Mexico is calm and that’s always a plus in hurricane season. There has only been one named storm in the Atlantic so far while the eastern Pacific has had seven named storms.

Would you believe that the month has actually been 2 degrees "cooler" than average in Mobile, and 1 degree "cooler" than average in Pensacola? Yes, it's true. The high humidity has just made it feel hotter. That same humidity gets credit for rainfall being an inch or two higher than average. We are not done yet. There are no big weather systems moving through our area so expect the humidity to linger, with temperatures near average.

This weekend starts with isolated morning showers in coastal counties. By mid afternoon, rain and thunderstorm coverage increases to about a quarter of the area. Those too, will be more likely in coastal counties than in inland counties but that doesn't mean you can't see some wet weather inland. Some of the thunderstorms will drop a lot of rain before fading.

Saturday night has low temperatures for coastal counties in the lower 70s. At the beaches, you’ll remain in the middle 70s. A shower or thunderstorm is always possible, although mainly along the coast.

Sunday will be less-wet but not totally dry. Highs both days will be in the lower 90s for coastal counties. Inland counties will be a couple of degrees warmer. For both weekend days, most locations won’t see rain but you will find a mixture of sun and clouds.

The new workweek starts a bit wetter but by midweek, we may actually go a couple of days without any rain.
