A classic Summer patttern will dominate the weather across the Deep South through the holiday weekend. Afternoon temperatures each day will reach the mid 90s, and we’ll dodge a few isolated showers and storms each afternoon. Many stay dry.
If you have beach or lake plans for the holiday week/weekend, there’s not much difference there, either. Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, PCB, Destin and 30-A will all feature a mix of sun and clouds and an occasional shower or storm. It could rain hard, and some lightning could make an appearance, but it won’t last all day or night. Most of these showers and storms last an hour or so, then it dries out for long stretches of the day. Temperatures along the immediate coast will top out in the lower 90s, with a salty, muggy feel to the air.
I am off the rest of the week - thanks to our team here for filling in so that I can enjoy some family time. From mine to yours, here’s to a happy and safe Fourth of July holiday.
