Central AL Forecast: Pleasant Holiday Weekend


Tracking the Tropics

More Tracking the Tropics

For the weekend, the drier air coming in will keep the humidity levels down significantly for Saturday & Sunday.  That means it will feel just a hair cooler in the morning before sunrise with lows in the upper 60s, as opposed to the low 70s.  Rain chances are next to nothing, so enjoy the abundant sunshine for Labor Day weekend!  Highs expected in the upper 80s.

For Labor Day, we continue our streak of dry weather with no considerable chance for rain as upper-level ridging remains dominant.  Morning lows in the upper 60s, afternoon highs in the upper 80s.

By Wednesday/Thursday of next week, we *MAY* be looking at a more fall-like airmass sliding into the region with more cooler air behind it…but that’s still up in the air.  As of this morning, global forecast models are still split on that possibility, with disagreement on where exactly the upper-level trough will go after breaking off from the jet stream.  We should see a better consensus as Wed/Thurs gets closer.
