Saturday Afternoon Update

| September 26, 2020 @ 12:26 pm

After a cloudy and foggy start to the day, we are gradually seeing more sunshine as we roll into the afternoon hours. It is a warm Saturday afternoon across Central Alabama, now that we are seeing a mix of sun and clouds.

Temperatures this afternoon are in the 80s for most locations. Not much change in the forecast tomorrow with highs again in the 80s. Moisture levels will be on the rise so we are expecting some scattered showers/storms, mainly during the afternoon and evening hours.

MONDAY: Monday will partly sunny and warm with scattered showers and storms with highs in the low to mid-80s. Late Monday and into Tuesday a strong cold front will dive into Alabama, bringing with it higher rain chances Monday night and Tuesday.

TUESDAY FRONT: Tuesday will have clouds and showers with noticeably cooler temperatures as highs on Tuesday will be around the 70 degree mark. The front will bring with it a much cooler, drier, and refreshing air mass to the state.

REST OF WEEK: For Wednesday through Friday, expect days full of sunshine, with highs well down into the 70s, and lows in the upper 40s and low 50s. Even colder weather looks to arrive by the first weekend of October with highs perhaps in the 60s, and we may see lows down into the 30s, and even perhaps some patchy frost across North Alabama.

IN THE TROPICS: All is quiet and no development is expected through the next five days across the Atlantic Basin. Remember hurricane season runs through the end November, so we still have plenty of time time to add to an already historic season.
