We have some showers on radar this afternoon. If they’ll just hold together, some of us may get a shower or two this afternoon and evening. Honestly, these showers are pretty pitiful but they’re better than nothing. They just pulse up from time to time and nearly fall apart at other times. I’m yet to see any lightning with any of this activity, though that can always change pretty quickly. Just keep your fingers crossed that we can get something from this. The Huntsville radar is just showing humidity in the air and not precip (it’s the setting they have it on right now).
The big news in the tropics this afternoon is Hurricane Lorenzo reaching cat 4 strength. He’s way out in the Atlantic and no threat to land anytime soon. Interestingly enough, the National Hurricane Center released this statement, “While its exact ranking will be determined later, Lorenzo is one of the largest and most powerful hurricanes of record for the central tropical Atlantic, with the only comparable hurricane in recent times near there being Gabrielle of 1989.”
You all have a good afternoon!
