Wake Up Wiregrass Forecast for August 7

Foggy and overcast conditions this morning will turn to partly cloudy skies with isolated showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening hours.

Highs today will be more seasonable around 91 degrees, lows tonight will be around 73 degrees with mostly cloudy skies.

There is a warm front to our north, in  extreme southern Tennessee and north Alabama, and a surface low and associated upper-level disturbance to our northwest causing widespread showers and storms to rolling through Arkansas, northeastern Texas Louisiana and Mississippi.  Weather associated with this system will continue to affect northern and parts of central Alabama this morning as the low slides to our north. The widespread activity looks to stick to the northern half of the state. South Alabama could see some showers and storms, but coverage isn't as organized. If we do see any precipitation,  it will come from the Gulf along with that southerly flow and and isolated storms will spawn thanks to daytime heating.

Cloudy skies and rain chances remain throughout the week bringing moisture from the Gulf but this pattern will keep highs slightly below average in the upper 80s.

Expect light chop on coastal lakes and bays with winds moving south at 10 to 15 knots and seas 1 to 2 feet.
Tropics Update: Tropical Storm Franklin has developed in the Southern Caribbean and is tracking west towards the Yucatan Peninsula, it is expected to make landfall along the Mexico coastline later this week. The storm poses no threat to the U.S.
