Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

Good Morning!  Only a very few spotty showers remain on FIRST ALERT Doppler radar this morning – but coverage will increase later today.  In the meantime, we're starting out with temperatures in the low to mid 70°; expect a sun/cloud mix for the majority of your Tuesday – 40% chance for mainly afternoon rain/storms, a high of 90°.  Overnight, a few spotty/isolated showers – a low in the lower 70°s; tomorrow, partly to mostly cloudy – scattered showers, 50% coverage, a high of 90°.  In addition, the WAFB Storm Team is issuing a "FIRST ALERT" for the potential of tropical weather development somewhere in the Gulf coast region over the Memorial Day weekend.  While there are still more questions than answers with regard to this potential tropical system, its occurrence during the holiday weekend increases the importance of alerting viewers!  The majority of computer forecast models continue to show some kind of "low pressure system" moving northward from the Caribbean and getting better organized in either the eastern or central Gulf towards the latter part of this week. We will definitely keep a VERY close eye on this situation and keep you up-to-date with any and all future developments! - Diane Deaton, WAFB First Alert Storm Team
