Isaias remains a tropical storm this morning, located along the Florida Coast, north of Miami and is still expected to graze the entire East Coast of Florida as a strong tropical storm, tracking parallel to the shore. This is very similar to what Hurricane Matthew & Hurricane Dorian did in both 2016 & 2019 respectively. NO impacts expected from this storm for Central Alabama.
For Sunday…a few more showers & storms likely as a front gradually drags South & East through the region. The highest chances of rain will be for those of us Southeast of Birmingham–near places like Calera, Clanton, Alex City, & Lineville. The rest of us to the North of Birmingham should see mainly sunshine & a taste of that lower humidity tomorrow. High temperatures ranging from the mid 80s to low 90s.
For Monday…a small, 20% chance of isolated showers. Otherwise, partly to mostly sunny with mild temperatures by August standards. Highs expected in the low 90s & a MUGGY day on the comfort index.
For the rest of next week…rain chances each day are much lower compared to this past week. A combination of Hurricane Isaias to our Southeast and a dip in the jet stream over the Deep South will allow the dry air to continue funneling in from a North wind. This means mainly sunshine for our weekdays through Friday. Expecting afternoon highs close to 90°, morning temperatures in the mid 60s.
