Latest on Alex

Tropical Storm Alex continues to gain strength over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico this morning. The forecast track of the storm still takes it inland on the upper Mexican coast or lower Texas coast sometime later this week. At this time it appears the track of the storm will not have much effect on our weather here in the Pine Belt other than maybe enhanced showers and thunderstorms, especially during the afternoon and early evening hours when maximum heating occurs and with the possible additional moisture in the atmosphere around the circulation of the storm. If there is a more northward turn of Alex later in the week then we may see a marked increase in clouds and showers and storms. At this time it appears the storm will stay well to our west. A few models want to try and take Alex on a more northerly track. We will continue to track the system and update this post blog often. Rex
