No Rain in Our Immediate Future Across Central Alabama

| October 1, 2022 @ 7:00 am

THE CENTRAL ALABAMA WEEKEND: What a perfect weekend for outdoor activities. Skies will be sunny, and it will feel very nice as today’s highs will reach the mid 70s to the lower 80s. Sunday will be a carbon-copy of today, as skies will remain sunny, with highs in the mid 70s to the lower 80s.

NEXT WEEK: The train of nice weather continues rolling on down the track on Monday. Skies will be sunny, with highs in the mid 70s to the lower 80s. Nearly the same story on Tuesday, with highs in the upper 70s to the lower 80s.

Wednesday will be a little warmer as a trough starts to move in our direction, which will shift our winds to out of the west. Skies remain clear, with highs in the lower to mid 80s. Thursday will be sunny and a couple degrees warmer, reaching the lower to mid 80s.

And at the end of the forecast period on Friday… a dry cold front will work through the area and will bring in a reinforcing shot of milder temperatures. Skies will be mostly sunny, with highs ranging from the mid 70s to the mid 80s across the area.

WE SAY GOODBYE TO IAN: As of 4 am this morning, the center of the remnants of Ian were located around 30 miles to the south of Greensboro, North Carolina, and moving to the north-northwest at 12 mph. The system is expected to dissipate later today over the southern parts of Virginia.

THE REST OF THE TROPICS: We have a tropical wave that is several hundred miles south of the Cabo Verde Islands. Conditions are favorable for slow development, and a depression is likely to form by mid-week. Movement is westward for now, but will start to move northwestward by Monday. This system will most likely stay out over the open water and not be a threat to the US.

ON THIS DAY IN WEATHER HISTORY – 1752: The second severe hurricane in two weeks hit the Carolinas. The Onslow County Courthouse was destroyed along with all its records, and Beacon Island disappeared.
