MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A classic mid-Summer pattern continues across the South for the foreseeable future. Each day will feature a lot of heat and humidity, and a few scattered showers and storms.
Tropical Update: Tropical Depression Seven has formed in the central Atlantic; it’s unlikely to affect us, but we’ll keep an eye on it over the next several days. Closer to home, a tropical disturbance will move across the Gulf of Mexico from east to west through Friday. This system now has a slightly higher chance (40%) of becoming a named storm or depression before moving into Southeast Texas by the end of the week.
Despite its relatively close proximity, we are not anticipating any impacts from it here in Central Alabama. Our rain and storm chances may even dip to 30% both Wednesday and Thursday as the tropical wave moves by to our south.
Rain and storm chances overall will fluctuate between roughly 30% and 50% depending on the day. There are no washout days in the forecast, nor are there any systems that will significantly raise or lower our rain chances on any given day.
Highs will stay in the mid-90s each afternoon for the foreseeable future, which is just above normal for late July here in Montgomery.
Overnight lows will continue dropping to either side of 75°, with the exact temperature dependent upon whether or not your specific location sees rain on any given afternoon.
