More WFLA Tracking the Tropics

MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) – We made it to Friday and it’s a good one because Friday Night Football is back! At kickoff, there will be a few showers around at a 30% chance, but as the night goes on the rain will fade. By the overnight there will only be a few stray showers and lows will be in the middle 70s.

We’ll be taking the weather we had today into the weekend. That means both days with at least a 50% chance for showers and thunderstorms. Highs will remain seasonable, in the lower 90s with heat index values near 100. Rain chances jump up a bit to start next week, but drier skies are ahead by the end of next week.   

TROPICAL UPDATE

Chantal is now a remnant low.

We continue to track the disturbance between the Bahamas and South Florida now has a high chance of developing into either a depression or tropical storm as it moves north. This is not coming to the Gulf of Mexico, but areas along the southeast coast need to watch closely.

There is a new disturbance in the central Atlantic. This has a high chance of developing as it moves towards the Leeward Islands. This isn’t a threat, but we’ll continue to keep a close eye on it. The next names on the lists are Dorian and Erin.
