Midday Nowcast: Mainly Sunny Labor Day

| September 4, 2023 @ 10:35 am

Plenty of sunshine across Alabama today and highs aren’t too bad with upper 80s and lower 90s across the state. A stray pop-up shower or storm is possible, mainly across West Alabama, but most of Alabama will remain dry the rest of today. Tonight will be partly cloudy with lows in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

BACK TO SCHOOL/WORK: Mainly sunny and generally dry weather will continue tomorrow, but we will bring in some risk of scattered showers and thunderstorms Wednesday and Thursday ahead of a surface front. Rain chances are in the 30-40% both days, and showers will be most active during the afternoon and evening hours. On Friday, drier air pushes into the state, and the chance of showers will be generally confined to the southern counties, south of Montgomery. Highs will be in the low 90s for most places tomorrow through Thursday, and in the mid to upper 80s Friday.

WEEKEND WEATHER: For now it looks dry for most of the state with mostly sunny days, fair nights, and highs in the mid to upper 80s, which are right at average for early September in Alabama. A few scattered showers will be possible near the Gulf Coast, but even there probably not much rain. The overall pattern will not change much for the first part of next week.

TROPICS: Tropical Storm Gert and Tropical Depression Katia will dissipate in the coming days and are no threat to land. Invest 95L, is expected to develop into Lee in the coming days. Forecast models develop this into a significant hurricane, perhaps the strongest of the season so far…we of course will keep an eye on it, but the global models turn the system to the north, east of the East Coast.
