Rain is out. Drier air is in. | Central AL Forecast

October 02 2021 06:00 pm

Tonight, drier air starts to move in as a cold front moves through central Alabama. We will become mostly clear, cooler, and less humid. Low temperatures will be in the mid 60s.

The cold front will move into southern Alabama tomorrow, and it will bring us less humid air through Friday. Thursday through Saturday will be sunny and dry with low humidity. This will be a very nice and welcome treat as we start September. High temperatures will be in the mid 80s each day. If you think that is nice, how about low temperatures in the upper 50s to lower 60s on Friday morning. Dare I say it….the feels of football….just a little taste in the mornings.

Weekend Outlook: The dry and less humid air will stick around on Saturday as an area of high pressure aloft builds over the Southeast U.S. It will be mostly sunny, warm, and comfortable. High temperatures will be in the upper 80s.

Sunday will become more humid as the area of high pressure builds to the west. This will allow for a trough of low pressure to move over the eastern U.S., and it will send an upper-level wave across Alabama. This will make it partly cloudy, warm, and humid with spotty showers and thunderstorms. High temperatures will be in the upper 80s.

Tracking the Tropics: Tropical Depression Kate continues to battle strong wind shear and dry air in the central Atlantic. It is expected to remain a tropical depression for the next few days as it moves generally north in the central Atlantic. This is not a threat to land.

As of 10 pm tonight Tropical Storm Larry is almost a hurricane, and it will strengthen into one by Thursday morning. It will continue to get stronger and forecast to be a Category 3 Hurricane on Friday. Fortunately, it is expected to be a “Fish Storm” and stay out in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
