7:15 AM | *The 50th anniversary of Hurricane Camille*

Paul Dorian

1969 was a remarkable year and will be long remembered as the year when man first walked on the moon, the Miracle Mets shocked the sports world, and the Woodstock Festival took place in upstate New York.  It will also be remembered as the year when a major hurricane –Hurricane Camille – struck the United States as a category 5 storm and the second most intense tropical cyclone on record (only the 1935 Labor Day hurricane had a lower central pressure at landfall).  Hurricane Camille made landfall in Mississippi and wreaked havoc from the Gulf States to as far inland as the Mid-Atlantic with widespread flooding, record rainfall, and it cost the lives of several hundreds of people along its path of destruction.

7:00 AM | *Threat of downpours next few days...refreshing air mass for the weekend*

Paul Dorian

A series of weak fronts will impact the region over the next few days and any shower or thunderstorm that forms can produce heavy rainfall given the entrenched highly saturated air mass and even small hail will be a threat. Given the well-saturated grounds, any heavy rainfall can result in flash flooding conditions in the Mid-Atlantic region. A stronger cold front will slip through the area at the end of the week likely paving the way for a nice weekend with a much more refreshing air mass anchored by high pressure to our north and west.

7:00 AM | *The heat continues next few days, but some hope for improvement by the weekend*

Paul Dorian

It’ll remain hot again today in the northern Alabama region with highs likely in the middle 90’s to go along with scattered showers and thunderstorms. The chance for showers and storms may increase on Wednesday as northwest flow aloft sets up with upper-level ridging over the Central Plains. The chance for showers and storms will continue on Thursday as a frontal system drops southeastward from the north-central states and its passage should usher in more comfortable air by the weekend.

7:00 AM | *Still quiet on the tropical scene*

Paul Dorian

The main story weather-wise for the rest of the week will be the dominate ridging centered over the western Atlantic. This system will continue to pump in very warm and humid air from the southeast continuing our daily shot at scattered showers and storms and high temperatures within a few degrees of 90 across central Florida.

7:00 AM | *Uncomfortably hot and humid to start the week...potential for some downpours next few days...weekend could turn out quite nice*

Paul Dorian

A Bermuda high pressure system will continue to pump very warm and humid air into the Mid-Atlantic region over the next few days and temperatures are likely to climb to the low-to-mid 90's for highs as we begin the new work week. A series of weak fronts will impact the region over the next few days and any shower or thunderstorm that forms can produce heavy rainfall given the entrenched highly saturated air mass and even small hail will be a threat. A stronger cold front will slip through the area at the end of the work week likely paving the way for a nice weekend with a more comfortable air mass anchored by high pressure to our north and west.

7:00 AM | *Highs near 90 degrees for much of the week*

Paul Dorian

The tropics remain quiet, but there are signs that activity may pick up again in the near term and the western Gulf of Mexico may be the region to focus on late this week or during the upcoming weekend. In this particular part of the Gulf, sea surface temperatures are especially warm relative-to-normal and this could fuel the formation of a tropical system. Meanwhile, as high pressure ridging strengthens over the western Atlantic, hot and humid conditions will prevail across Florida for the next few days. Temperatures should climb to within a couple degrees of the 90 degree mark for highs during the next few days and there will be a continuing chance of showers and thunderstorms.

A Bermuda high pressure system will continue to pump very warm and humid air into the Mid-Atlantic region over the next few days and temperatures are likely to climb to 90+ degree for highs as we begin the new work week. A series of weak fronts will impact the region over the next few days and any shower or thunderstorm that forms can produce heavy rainfall given the entrenched highly saturated air mass and even small hail will be possible. A stronger cold front will slip through the area at the end of the week likely paving the way for a nice weekend with a more refreshing air mass anchored by high pressure to our north and west.

In this particular part of the Gulf, sea surface temperatures are especially warm relative-to-normal and this could fuel the formation of a tropical system. Meanwhile, as high pressure ridging strengthens over the western Atlantic, very hot and humid conditions will prevail across the Tennessee Valley during the next few days. In fact, temperatures should reach the middle 90’s for highs through mid-week, but a more comfortable air mass should arrive by the latter part of the week anchored by high pressure over the Great Lakes.
