More Tracking the Tropics

Good Wednesday evening, everyone!  What a day out there!  We promised y’all a gorgeous day & that’s what we got.  All sunshine this afternoon with temperatures today that topped out in the upper 70s.

Overnight tonight, temperatures cooling down quickly after sunset with a clear sky over all of Alabama.  One night away from the full moon, too!  Full moon officially occurs tomorrow at 4:05 PM.  Temps in the 60s before 10 PM, 50s after 10 PM.  Morning lows in the lower 50s.

For tomorrow, no major changes expected with lots of sunshine.  We will have a dry cold front that will pass through during the afternoon.  It will be a little breezy behind the front in the afternoon & evening with a North wind at 10 to 15 mph.  Afternoon highs in the upper 70s with NO chance of rain.

For Friday, temperatures will be about 5 to 10 degrees cooler in this next front’s wake.  A bit chilly once again Friday morning with lows in the mid to upper 40s.  Afternoon highs near 70° with a sunny sky.  NO chance for rain.

For this weekend, high pressure remains dominant which means a pleasant, quiet weekend.  Mostly sunny for both Saturday & Sunday afternoon.  Still a bit crisp at night & in the morning with lows in the 40s & 50s, afternoon highs in the 70s.

For early next week, still no big changes expected, but a slight warming trend appears to be in the works.  Highs in the upper 70s/low 80s Monday & Tuesday.  More sunshine.

In the tropics, we have a newly formed disturbance in the Caribbean that bears watching.  Development is likely (60% chance) over the next 5 days, but thankfully this will not have any impact on our forecast for the foreseeable future.
