Alberto is still a subtropical storm with 50mph sustained winds, roughly 400 miles from Jackson. It should make landfall around Panama City Monday near noon as a tropical storm. Our showers have been limited today because of dry air being wrapped around Alberto. We will have a little more shower activity Monday with Alberto passing off to our east and north. Otherwise, we expect little if any activity related to Alberto around here. On Tuesday, a drier weather pattern takes hold. We will still run the risk of an isolated shower from time to time over the coming days, but instead of temperatures in the 80s, we will see middle 90s for much of this week. Expect highs between 85 and 90 Monday and Tuesday with partly sunny skies and a chance for daytime and evening showers. Wednesday through Friday will give us highs in the middle 90s and only a slight chance for showers. The heat index will be around 100 or higher with humidity factored in. We will have more sunshine during the coming days as well.
