First Alert Weather Day: Don't cancel plans, but plan around scattered downpours

Subtropical Storm Alberto is moving towards the Florida Panhandle this morning with 65 MPH sustained winds. Alberto makes landfall Monday, between Panama City Beach and Pensacola, Florida.

Monday is a First Alert Weather Day – keep an extra close eye on the forecast and downpours that develop through the day, if you have outdoor plans.

On Alberto’s eastern side, scattered downpours will continue to pop-up and soak portions of the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry through this afternoon.

Some sunshine is likely today, but that will help new thunderstorms develop. While today features big breaks in the rain, you’ll need to remain aware of rain in the area through the day-time hours.

A few storms may produce cloud-to-ground lightning and gusty winds. The risk of isolated tornadoes is not zero but remains quite low. There is a Marginal, 1/5, risk of severe weather.

As we remain stuck in this stagnant weather pattern – daily scattered showers and storms are expected through Thursday. By Friday, high-pressure gains greater control of our forecast and drier conditions are expected this weekend.

It’ll heat up too! High temperatures warmer than 90° are possible as early as Thursday; persisting into the weekend with just an isolated rain chance.
