Central AL Forecast: Dry through the week, Tracking Dorian

News

SETUP/DORIAN: A ridge of high pressure will build to our north and west. This is going to keep Dorian from moving much farther west and it will also help to keep our winds mainly out of the north. This is why we will see rain free conditions over the next several days. Dorian remains a major hurricane as it is nearly stationary over the northwest Bahamas. It will slowly start to lift northwest and approach the Florida coastline. However, the eye of the storm should stay off shore. This is powerful hurricane and not something the Florida coastline should take lightly. It’ll pick up speed towards midweek, where it could make landfall along the Carolinas’ coastline. 

TUESDAY: Sunshine will be the theme of the week ahead. Temperatures will be warm in the afternoon in the low 90s.

REST OF THE WEEK: A frontal boundary will move through, transitioning our winds to out of the north by the end of the week. This will result in even less humidity and cool overnight lows. Mostly sunny with cumulus clouds on Wednesday and then sunny through the end of the week. Temperatures will start off cool on Thursday and Friday morning in the 60s and afternoon highs will warm to the upper 80s, low 90s.
