Tonight, any rain will end, and it will become clear. We will have mild lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

The ridge will still be west of Alabama, but we will be close enough to feel the heat. Wednesday and Thursday will have a lot of sunshine and it will really heat up. The last few days of summer will have high temperatures in the mid 90s. What a way to end summer!

Fortunately, a cold front will sweep across the Southeast U.S. late Thursday into Friday morning. This will not bring us any rain, but it will briefly break up the heat. Friday will be mostly sunny, less humid and cooler with high temperatures back in the mid 80s. Friday night will be clear and cool with lows in the upper 50s to lower 60s. Dew points will drop into the upper 30s to low 40s, this will absolutely make it feel like fall this weekend.

Weekend Outlook: An area of high pressure will build in behind the front this weekend. Expect more sunshine and dry weather on Saturday. High temperatures will be very warm as they climb into the upper 80s. Sunday will become partly cloudy, and we could see a few late-day showers as a cold front moves toward Alabama. High temperatures will be in the upper 80s. Rain and storms arrive Sunday night with the cold front.
