Typical JuneJune 17th, 2014 at 3:11 pm by Jason Smith under FOX10 Stormtracker Weather
It certainly is a hot week, with highs in the low 90’s each day and only a few very brief t-showers. One shower popped up over west Mobile around lunchtime today, and then dissipated about 20 minutes later. The upper atmosphere is not supporting long lasting t-showers. Storm motion is very slow from east to west.
An upper level ridge will remain in place over the forecast area, along with weak surface high pressure centered just to our east. A decent sea breeze sets up each afternoon this week yet, moisture values remain moderate to low. Daytime heating and sea breeze activity will be enough to overcome the ridging, resulting in pop up afternoon and evening t-storms.
The best chances of rain will be just north of I-10. Daytime highs stay at or above 90 through early next week. The upper ridge breaks down a little by the end of the week, resulting in slightly higher chances of afternoon t-storms.
