  • Remnants of Imelda Bring Heavy Rain to East Texas; North Alabama Remains Dry

    Imelda’s remnants likely to cause flooding. Tropical Storm Imelda is no more. Imelda rapidly weakened after landfall, but it will continue to cause big issues across east Texas and west Louisiana over the next couple of days. Heavy rains associated with the remnant low of Imelda could drop over 20 inches of rain in some spots. This extreme amount of rain has led to most of east Texas and west Louisiana to be placed in a Flash Flood Watch. While Texas […]

  • New Tropical Storm: Jerry Forms In Central Atlantic

    We have a new tropical storm. Jerry formed early Wednesday morning. The system moves west-northwest through the weekend. It’s expected to stay north of the Lesser Antilles over the weekend.

  • What Are Those Lines On The Radar?

    You may notice on hot, summer days, strange looking lines on the radar, even though there isn’t any rain. These are called convective rolls, and they happen when hot air tries to rise, but something is preventing that air from continuing to rise and it sinks back down to the surface. Today, high pressure across the Tennessee Valley is keeping air from rising to the point that we could create showers and storms.  Occasionally, a brief shower has popped up […]

  • Brutally Hot To Start Week; Cooler Air On The Way.

    Scorching heat continues: We’re starting out the week on a toasty note. A big ridge of high pressure is in place across the central and southern U.S. to start this week. That ridge brings sinking air along with it, preventing storm development and keeping us hot. We could see a few spots hit the low 100s between this afternoon and Wednesday. If there’s any silver lining here, it’s that the dewpoints won’t be all that high, meaning the heat index will […]

  • New Development Soon In Far East Atlantic

    Thankfully Humberto moves away from the United States in the coming days. Rip currents are the main threat along with rough surf from the Carolinas to Florida. The next system is in the far east Atlantic. The National Hurricane Center gives the system a 60% chance of development over the next couple of days with a 90% chance in the next five days. Here is the text from the National Hurricane Center: 1. Showers and thunderstorms have increased this morning […]

  • Dry Pattern Continues This Week

    Dry pattern continues: No change to the overall dry pattern we are stuck in. The main controlling feature for our weather for the next few days will be this persistent upper level high pressure. Dewpoints will trend down starting tomorrow, and with that drier air our chance for even a rogue shower disappears. Our next  chance for an isolated downpour will come Thursday, but even then, most spots miss out on any rain. Tropics active, Humberto likely to become hurricane: There’s […]

  • Another Hot College Football Saturday

    Alabama at South Carolina: While it won’t be as hot as last week’s game in Bryant Denny, another warm afternoon game is in store for the Crimson Tide. An isolated shower or storm can’t be ruled out for the game, but the better odds are this game stays dry. Auburn v Kent State: Auburn’s weather again benefits from a later kickoff. Highs will top out around 90° in Auburn today, but it will be around 85° at kickoff for that game, with […]
