Monday, June 3 Forecast Discussion

Plentiful sunshine with us today as clouds have continued to erode from north to south, and we will see a beautiful election day across the area as highs climb toward 90 with still fairly low humidity. We start seeing humidity return on Wednesday, which could lead to a few showers and storms in the afternoon and evening hours.

Thursday and Friday are the question marks as a cold front looks to arrive, and the question is does the front draw the tropical wave further our direction or still send it more to Florida? Models in the last 24 hours have shifted the track of this wave further west with consensus lying in it coming ashore (strength is unknown at this point) somewhere between Mobile and Pensacola. This would obviously cause more impacts for us with more rain and cooler conditions. I am not completely sold on that westward of a track yet, but the cold front will definitely bring numerous showers and storms for us and keep temperatures down.

Either way our tropical wave moves, it will exit for the weekend and we will remain dry until early next week when it looks like another cold front arrives.

I again want to emphasize that if you have plans along the Gulf Coast, you need to monitor this wave closely as it could develop into a tropical storm before coming ashore. Luckily, the time this wave has in the Gulf looks to be minimal as it should be on land no later than Friday.
