Tracking the Tropics: Eyes on the Gulf
MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - I’m FOX10 Chief Meteorologist Jason Smith with a look at your forecast.
It was another warm and sunny day today across the Gulf Coast. We saw daytime highs a touch warmer, maxing out in the upper-80s and the lower-90s. However, higher humidity had it feeling 3-5 degrees warmer. Heading into this evening, temperatures will drop down into the lower-to-mid 80s by 7 PM. After that, skies will stay partly cloudy with overnight lows dropping down to the upper-60s and the lower-70s. Patchy to dense fog is also possible this evening, with the inland spots seeing a higher chance for that development.
Isolated to scattered rain showers and thunderstorms return in the forecast tomorrow. Despite the rain chances and increased cloud cover, daytime highs will be even warmer in the lower-90s.
This trend of hit or miss showers and T-Storms will continue into the week ahead, with daytime highs staying above average. We continue to track the tropics at this time. Hurricane Agatha in the Eastern Pacific is currently making landfall in Mexico. We are monitoring this storm, due to the potential of the remnants moving near the Bay of Campeche. The NHC has given those remnants a 40% (MEDIUM) chance to redevelop over the next 5 days. Many models are in agreeance of something reforming, however it is too early to talk tracks. If this does reform, it will be assigned the first name of the Atlantic season - Alex. As always be cautious of what you see on social media, and always verify your sources. We will continue to keep you updated right here on FOX10.
Have a great, and safe, evening!
