An all new edition of the ABC 33/40 Weather Xtreme video is available in the player below. You can subscribe to the Weather Xtreme video on iTunes by clicking here.

The autumnal equinox is this morning at 10:44 a.m. CDT… the sun is directly over the equator on the journey south. We have approximately 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of darkness as the change to cooler weather continues. Love it.

THE ALABAMA WEATHER STORY: Our benign weather pattern continues for the foreseeable future. The week ahead looks dry with warm afternoons and pleasant nights. Highs in the mid 80s today, lowering into the low 80s by mid-week. Early morning lows will be close to 60 tomorrow, with mid to upper 50s Wednesday morning.

Some hint of a little moisture moving into the state from the east late in the week and over the weekend, but like this past weekend, we don’t expect anything more than sprinkles. A large part of next week looks dry as well; extended periods of dry weather are common in late September and October, typically our driest period of the year.

KYLE? A tropical disturbance near Puerto Rico could become Tropical Storm Kyle in coming days; see the Weather Xtreme video for all of the graphics associated with this system. It has the potential to threaten the upper Atlantic coast late this week, but no impact on the Gulf of Mexico or Alabama.
