Fewer StormsJuly 10th, 2014 at 6:49 pm by Jason Smith under FOX10 Stormtracker Weather
We saw a significant increase in moisture in the atmosphere today. A break has developed in the upper ridge, and we saw a weak sagging front in central and northern Alabama. As a result a nice round of showers and storms swept through the area, dumping a half inch to an inch of rain in most spots.
Mid-level ridging rebuilds by Friday and the weekend. Drier air should move in, leaving us hot ! Rain chances will be lower by Saturday and Sunday, and this is good news for outdoor events like the Blue Angels. Daytime highs will be in the low to mid 90’s, and overnight lows will work their way back up into the low to mid 70’s. The tropics are quiet.
Long range models hint at the idea of another front arriving late next week. This should bring back scattered t-storms and perhaps slight lower temps by Thursday and Friday.
