MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) – Our stretch of unsettled and steamy weather continues as moisture levels continue to increase. Rain chances will climb to 60-70% for today and tomorrow. Locally heavy downpours will be likely with any storms that move through. Storms will also be capable of gusty winds and frequent lightning.
Highs will run at or slightly below normal thanks to the higher humidity and extra rain. Highs will reach the upper 80s and lower 90s. However, with the higher humidity, heat index values will remain in the triple digits.
Rain chances will drop off through the weekend as drier air settles in. Very few showers are expected by Sunday and Monday. Highs will reach the middle 90s by early next week. By the middle of next week, a pattern change could bring slightly below-average temperatures.
TROPICS: Tropical Depression Eleven is now Tropical Storm Josephine. The storm will continue on a west-northwest track in the next couple of days. By Saturday it will be just north of the Lesser Antilles. From there it will begin turning more northerly.
By Sunday, the atmosphere will become quite hostile for tropical development. The long-range forecast calls for significant weakening into the early half of next week. By mid-week, the system could fade away.
