Today’s Dry Bubble
From Meteorologist Ryan Dugger in the 4Warn Storm Center:
SYNOPSIS – A dry bubble seemed to form over much of the Wiregrass today as scattered showers and thunderstorms stayed west and moved through Florida towards the Gulf Coast. However, cool wind gusts from these downpours flowed in to provide relief from the heat this evening as temperatures lowered between the upper 70s and middle 80s before sunset. Partly cloudy skies tonight will give way to better rain coverage for south-central Alabama tomorrow as energy and moisture is directed around the ridge of high pressure to the West. While isolated PM showers and thunderstorms are expected for much of the week ahead, wider rain activity can be seen again Tuesday. Early afternoon heating and midday cool-downs from showers and thunderstorms will maintain high temperatures around the middle 90s.
