MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) – Hello everyone, hopefully, it’s been a good day so far. It’s already hot and it’s getting hotter… Most will top out this afternoon in the upper 90s! When you add the humidity, heat index values will be around 105°. Stay cool and don’t forget your furry friends. Continuing to follow the trend of recent days, rain will be hard to come by with only a 10% chance a passing shower or pop up thunderstorm finds you.
Tonight brings clear skies and lows in the middle 70s. It’s more high heat tomorrow as we’re right back to the upper 90s, but we’ll likely see one or two more spots hit the century mark.
Changes arrive on Thursday as a back-door cold front swings in. This simply means the front will move in from our east. This will help bring us a decent rain chance, but it’s not a guarantee at 40%. This will also help ease the high heat with highs in the lower 90s. As we end the work-week we’re back to dry skies, but the humidity will be bearable and while temperatures remain above average, it’s lows near 70 and highs near 90.
Tropical depression 10 has formed in the central Atlantic. It is forecast to strengthen and eventually become a hurricane. It will likely be staying north of the Caribbean and most forecast models have it turning north in the Atlantic before reaching the United States. At the moment it doesn’t pose a threat to the United States, but we’ll continue to follow. The next name on the list is Imelda.
Tropical storm Imelda formed from what was very briefly known as tropical depression 11. Not only did it become a tropical storm quickly, but it also already made landfall. It’s not a threat here. Further strengthening is not forecast as it moves inland, but with all the tropical moisture this will be a substantial rainmaker for southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana.
Hurricane Humberto continues to strengthen as it continues to move farther away from the US East Coast. It will come close to Bermuda later this week, but isn’t likely to make a landfall. By the weekend it moves into the north Atlantic and will become post-tropical. It’s not a threat.
There are no foreseeable tropical threats to our stretch of the Gulf Coast.
