Friday Night: Hot and humid with scattered storms this weekend; Fred is expected to track toward the Gulf Coast

Weather

Tonight: We are mostly dry and partly cloudy overnight. Morning temperatures will fall into the low and mid 70s.

Saturday: Deep tropical moisture will remain in place and this means we could have some intense downpours during the afternoon and evening hours. Storms may produce frequent lightning and gusty wind, as well. Rain chance will come down by the mid-evening hours. Highs will be in the lower 90s with feels like temperatures in the 100s.

Sunday: More scattered to numerous storms during the afternoon and evening hours. High temperature will be near 92°F.

Monday: Scattered showers and storms are likely, but it’s all dependent on how far west Fred tracks. If it tracks more west, then we could be mostly dry. More east, we could see more scattered showers and storms. Highs near 91°F.

Rest of Next Week: Scattered to numerous rain chances into early next week. Highs will be in the lower 90s.

Tracking the Tropics: Fred remains poorly organized, but it will slowly intensify as it enters the Gulf on Saturday. Current forecast path brings it toward the north-central Gulf Coast, possibly toward the Florida panhandle, as a tropical storm on Monday. The cone still includes the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Until Fred gets a bit more organized, it’s hard to say exactly who will get what. Still expecting impacts to stay to the east of our area. We also now have Tropical Depression Seven in the open Atlantic. This will become Grace sometime this weekend. Too early to tell where this goes.
