The weather pattern is about to change from unsettled and cooler than normal to hot and dry!
Today is the last day we'll see temperatures below normal and a chance for showers and storms. We can blame the upper level trough in place for this kind of weather. Remember, a trough is a dip in the jet stream.
A disturbance rounding the base of the trough will continue to produce showers and storms today, especially across the northern part of the Fox 6 viewing area. Widely scattered to isolated activity might develop further south this PM. A strong storm can't be ruled out this afternoon across far east Alabama, though the greatest threat for severe storms will be across central Georgia.
Here's a look at the HOUR-BY-HOUR Forecast:
Thanks to clouds and potential rain, pollen count is forecast to be low today. Warmer and drier weather will allow the pollen count to increase this upcoming week.
An upper level ridge that's positioned to our west, shifts eastward this week and that means a warm up!
Have a great rest of the weekend!
