It’s hot and humid; disturbances in the tropics
MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Temps are heating up a bit, and rain chances are lowering for the next few days. Expect a heat index around 105 on Tuesday. We will see scattered, mainly afternoon storms each day through Thursday. Rain chances are generally around 40%, but these chances increase by Friday as a front stalls in the area. This feature will bring increasing rain chances for the Labor Day Weekend. We expect likely chances of rain on Saturday and Sunday.
In the tropics, there are a number of areas of interest that we are watching. The most likely area of development is in the central Atlantic. This broad low has an 80% chance of development in the next 5 days. This feature looks to gain latitude and looks to stay out of the Gulf of Mexico. Of the other areas we are watching, one spot in the northwestern Caribbean Sea has a low chance of development at 10%. The other features are way out in the Atlantic and are not currently a threat to the U.S.
