Quiet weather continues, Warmer afternoons ahead | Central AL Forecast

Forecast

WE’VE BEEN ENJOYING SOME BEAUTIFUL EARLY FALL WEATHER THIS WEEKEND ACROSS CENTRAL AL — TONS OF SUNSHINE YESTERDAY FOR COLLEGE FOOTBALL! IT WAS THE SAME STORY TODAY WITH ABUNDANT SUNSHINE AND NEAR-AVERAGE HIGH TEMPERATURES — MOST PLACES TODAY GOT INTO THE LOWER 80S.

FOR TONIGHT, WE’RE EXPECTING ANOTHER PLEASANT, COOL EVENING AFTER SUNSET WITH A CLEAR SKY AND TEMPERATURES IN THE 60S. MORNING LOWS TOMORROW LIKELY IN THE MIDDLE TO UPPER 50S. CALM WINDS, NO CHANCE OF RAIN.

FOR TOMORROW, NO MAJOR CHANGES ARE EXPECTED — WE’LL SEE A MOSTLY SUNNY SKY AND AN OVERALL BEAUTIFUL DAY WITH WARM TEMPERATURES IN THE AFTERNOON. HIGHS MONDAY WILL CLIMB INTO THE LOWER 80S, WITH SOME PLACES SOUTH OF BIRMINGHAM POSSIBLY HITTING THE MIDDLE 80S. SOUTH WINDS AT 5 TO 10 MPH, NO CHANCE OF RAIN.

IN THE TROPICS RIGHT NOW, WE HAVE A FEW AREAS OF INTEREST BEING WATCHED FOR DEVELOPMENT, AND WE ALSO HAVE MAJOR HURRICANE SAM TRACKING WEST THROUGH THE CENTRAL ATLANTIC OCEAN. SAM IS A VERY STRONG, CATEGORY 4 HURRICANE WITH MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS IN EXCESS OF 130 MPH. FORTUNATELY FOR PLACES IN THE CARIBBEAN, SAM IS FORECASTED TO MAKE A GRADUAL RIGHT TURN TOWARDS THE NORTH, LIKELY MISSING MUCH OF THE LESSER ANTILLES IN THE EASTERN CARIBBEAN. HOWEVER, ONCE THIS STORM PASSES THIS AREA, IT COULD CONTINUE ITS TRACK NORTH LATER THIS WEEK AS A MAJOR HURRICANE TOWARDS BERMUDA. THANKFULLY FOR US, THIS STORM AS OF RIGHT NOW IS NOT LIKELY TO IMPACT THE MAINLAND UNITED STATES.

BACK HERE AT HOME THIS WEEK, WE’RE EXPECTING A PROLONGED STRETCH OF DRY CONDITIONS ACROSS THE DEEP SOUTH, AS AN UPPER-LEVEL AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE DEVELOPS DURING THE MID WEEK. NO BIG CHANCES OF RAIN ARE IN THE FORECAST FOR THE NEXT FIVE DAYS (MONDAY TO FRIDAY).

WHILE WE’LL CONTINUE TO SEE COOL TEMPERATURES OUTSIDE EARLY IN THE MORNING THIS WEEK, IT WILL BE NOTICEABLY MUCH WARMER DURING THE AFTERNOON, WITH HIGHS LIKELY STAYING IN THE 80S ALL WEEK LONG.
