Future tropical concerns....

Bill Murray of Alabamawx.com has pointed out that the GFS is projecting the development of a storm to develop off of the coast of Africa and travel all the way across the Atlantic to South Florida and then into the Gulf of Mexico and eventually strike the northern Gulf Coast. As James Spann always says, this is "voodoo land" at this point. This definitely bears watching, though as we are moving into the time of the year where these type of storm paths are most likely.

I predicted 40 in J.B. Elliott's contest to predict the weekend's lowest temperature in Mount Leconte, Tennessee. The actual low was 44 on both Saturday and Sunday. Three folks predicted 44 on the nose, each earning one-third of a brown sugar cinnamon pop tart.

Here at home, I had a low of 58 on Saturday morning and a low of 60 this morning. Saturday's high was 86 with relatively low humidity. Anyway you look at it, it was very nice for August in Alabama.

Time to get ready for church...
