More Storms Headed Towards the Metro Area

More Storms Headed Towards the Metro Area

Storms are rolling across a majority of Alabama this afternoon as a large complex of storms that developed in central MO last night has put down yet another complex!! This is again from that pattern that is called a NW flow. Whenever we have that pattern storms will fire to the NW and head towards the SE. Most of the time they will move over Alabama and N Georgia and dump anywhere between 1-3 inches of rain. The good news is that today it looks like the heavy rain wil stay to the west in all of Alabama and S Georgia!

Atlanta Weather | Sand Capping Tropical Development

Atlanta Weather | Sand Capping Tropical Development
 There is currently a tropical wave sliding off the coast of Africa and could develop into an organized tropical system, but there is something that is hindering it. The hindrance is in the form of dry and dusty air streaming across the eastern Atlantic Ocean from Africa's Sahara Desert.Without this Saharan dust present, concern would be high for the wave to quickly strengthen into Tropical Storm Dorian.Saharan dust is quite warm and able to rise into the upper levels of the atmosphere over the Atlantic, putting a lid on thunderstorm activity within tropical systems.The absence of those thunderstorms prevents tropical waves from maturing into tropical storms.
