Warming up and watching the Tropics

Watching TWO tropical systems that may impact the Gulf

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The temperatures and the Tropics are warming up. This workweek will feature highs in the 80s and eyes on the Gulf of Mexico. Let’s dive in.

First things first, today was another pleasant day in the 70s. From here, however, many will return to the 80s. After a start in the middle 50s, tomorrow will warm to either side of 80 degrees.

Our forecast will remain dry for most the workweek, but rain chances return by Friday. This will be courtesy of Potential Tropical Cyclone 26 (soon to be Tropical Storm Delta). Per the National Hurricane Center, this storm is expected to strengthen into a hurricane once it reaches the Gulf of Mexico and head towards the northern Gulf Coast. There is still a lot of uncertainty when it comes to exact track and intensity, but those details will be ironed out in the coming days, so check back for updates. This is something that needs to be watched!

Remember Tropical Storm Gamma? It’s still down by Mexico, but now it may be pulling a fast one on us, too... It’s newest forecast track has it making a turn back into the Gulf of Mexico. It’s still too early if this will head towards the coast or interact with Potential Tropical Cyclone 26, but we’re watching this storm closely, too.
