THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: Moisture will continue to increase from the east, and we will forecast a mix of sun and clouds Saturday and Sunday with some risk of scattered showers and storms. The best chance of showers will come during the afternoon and evening hours, and the highest coverage should be on the eastern side of the state. Afternoon highs over the weekend will be mostly in the upper 80s.

NEXT WEEK: Looks fairly quiet; just a few widely scattered showers each afternoon, with partly sunny days and highs close to 90 degrees. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

EYES ON ERIKA: Tropical Storm Erika is packing sustained winds of 45 mph this morning as it moves through the northern Leeward Islands. It will move over Puerto Rico tonight with potential for beneficial rain, and then on to the Bahamas tomorrow and Saturday. The system is expected to remain a tropical storm through Sunday, but a number of computer models indicate the chance of strengthening after passing longitude 75W.

The official forecast from NHC brings Erika to a point on the Florida East Coast below Daytona Beach Monday. There remains a good bit of uncertainty in the forecast, but those that live in the Florida Peninsula need to keep up with the latest forecasts. It is unlikely that Erika gets into the Gulf of Mexico, but we can’t totally rule that out. Models have been trending to the right, meaning there is some chance Erika could recurve just off the Florida coast without making landfall.

AT THE BEACH: Very nice weather continues with mostly sunny days and fair nights on the Gulf Coast from Gulf Shores west to Panama City Beach through the weekend… just a few isolated storms around. Highs will be in the upper 80s, and sea water temperatures are mostly in the mid 80s.See the complete Gulf Coast 7 Day Planner here.
