And, of course, in summer there is no way of knowing in advance exactly when or where the storms pop up. You just have to keep an eye on radar.
THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: We continue to roll with a persistence forecast. Mixed sun and clouds Saturday and Sunday with scattered showers and storms, most active during the afternoon and evening hours. Highs generally in the low 90s.
And, next week, as we begin August, the weather just won’t change much. No reason to depart from the routine summer forecast. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.
TROPICS: The Atlantic basin remains very quietly, and tropical storm formation is not expected through the week.
AT THE BEACH: About 7 to 9 hours of sunshine daily through the weekend from Gulf Shores to Panama City Beach, and of course you will deal with a passing storm from time to time. Highs on the immediate coast 87-90, with mid 90s inland. Sea water temperatures are in the mid to upper 80s. See a very detailed Gulf Coast forecast here.
