Good morning from Huntsville. The whole team is here this morning, including me, Scott, and James, for WeatherReady Fest 2019! Come bring the family from 10-4 for a day of weather fun and learning at UAH. The event is free and will be held in the Charger Student Union and Shelby Center. There will be weather balloon launches, tours of mobile Doppler radars and other weather vehicles from UAH, speakers, kids’ activities, two great stage shows, and a book signing by our very own James Spann. Get your Passport at Registration and get it stamped to win great door prizes with Nick Walker from The Weather Channel! Come join us!

GOODBYE DORIAN: Terrible Hurricane Dorian is still a hurricane this morning and probably won’t complete its transition to extratropical cyclone until after it deals a pretty good blow to Nova Scotia tonight and early Sunday. The system blew by eastern New England early this morning and is racing northeast at nearly 30 mph. The storm’s name will be retired, with good cause, after leaving a humanitarian crisis in the Bahamas.

ELSEWHERE IN THE TROPICS: We are watching two disturbances a long way off that could have implications for interests in the Caribbean and eventually the U.S. One, 94L, is past the Cape Verde islands and will reach the islands in 6-7 days. It has a pretty good chance to be a tropical depression or tropical storm by midweek. The second disturbance, still over western Africa, might even have a better chance at development, but it isn’t even on the board yet. We will have plenty of time to watch both of them.THE HEAT IS ON: A heat advisory is in effect for parts of Central Alabama for today, including Autauga, Barbour, Bibb, Bullock, Chilton, Dallas, Elmore, Greene, Hale, Lee, Lowndes, Macon, Marengo, Montgomery, Perry, Pickens, Pike, Russell, Sumter, and Tuscaloosa Counties. Heat index values this afternoon will approach or exceed 105 degrees with highs in the lower and middle 90s. Take it easy if you are going to be outside working or playing today.
