6/3 – Night Rob’s “First Weekend Of June” Friday Evening Forecast

We’ll continue with the spotty t-storms this Friday afternoon and evening as a weak cold front sags into our area. It will stall out and weaken over the weekend as slightly drier air filters in from the north. With more subsidence (sinking air) to limit lift, storm chances on Saturday will be very low, although it will remain hot. A disturbance will pass through the area Sunday which slightly bumps up the precip chances on Sunday, but overall storm chances over the weekend are slim. It’ll then dry out again for at least through the early part of next week.

Humidity will ramp up mid-week with nothing really organized to trigger t-storms. This will result in slight chances of afternoon/evening storms then, with real-feel temps around 100 at times to round out the work week.

Tropics wise, the National Hurricane Center will initiate advisories on now Potential Tropical Cyclone One. Looking on satellite imagery it definitely looks a little better organized although wind shear aloft is shearing it and looking pretty lopsided. This system is expected to stay in the southeast Gulf of Mexico and western Caribbean moving northeastward towards southern Florida, with a decent chance it’ll be classified a tropical storm and named Alex. No impacts are expected for Louisiana and Mississippi but it’s definitely a reminder that hurricane season is here.
