MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The humid factor will continue to rise this week, along with temperatures. The combination of the two, means an isolated to stray shower or storm cannot be ruled out each day during the week ahead.
Tuesday you can expect a mix of sun and clouds. A few showers and storms are possible in the afternoon and those will linger into the evening. Highs will top out into the 90s with east winds around 5 mph, overnight lows will hover in the 60s and 70s under partly to mostly clear skies.
Wednesday will feature mostly to partly sunny skies. Highs again will warm into the 90s with a bit of a sticky factor outside. A pop-up shower cannot be ruled out, but most will remain dry. Lows will hover into the 60s and 70s region wide.
A weakening cold front will slide into the area on Thursday. That will increase rain chances a tad as we push through the afternoon hours. Highs will again warm into the 90s under partly to mostly sunny skies. A shower will linger into Thursday night, with lows in the 60s and 70s and partly to mostly clear conditions.
Friday will also feature a hit-or-miss shower during the day. Afternoon highs will again warm into the 80s close to 90 degrees. Lows will hover in the 60s under fair skies.
The weekend is shaping up to be warm yet pleasant. Highs both Saturday and Sunday will top out near 90 degrees with overnight lows right around 70 degrees.
Tracking the Tropics: Hurricane Season officially starts on Wednesday, June 1st and The National Hurricane Center is highlighting the area around the Yucatan Peninsula for potential development. This area is given a 50% chance of tropical formation over the next 5 days.
Agatha officially made landfall along the coast of Mexico on Monday, May 30th. The storm was rated a Category 2 storm at the time of landfall. The storm has since been down graded to a Tropical Storm and will continue to lose strength as it moves across Mexico.
The long range forecast models are hinting at the moisture left over from Agatha moving into the Gulf of Mexico and re-organizing later this week, hence the 50% chance for development over the next 5 days in the Bay of Campeche. There is still a lot of uncertainty with this system and it will be something we watch closely in the days to come.
