Alabama’s Most Detailed Seven Day Forecast

Monday Morning, October 2, 2023
Forecaster: Scott Martin (X: @scottmartinwx)

We’ll have a little bit of a wedging effect on Monday as temperatures will be a little cooler. Sunny skies with highs ranging throughout the 80s. And no change for Tuesday as skies will continue to be mainly sunny with highs throughout the 80s. No, there is no scratch on the CD as the forecast for Wednesday will be an almost exact copy. Sunny and warm with highs in the 80s.

Now on Thursday, we will start to see a little change as a trough will be in the process of taking over for the ridge that had been over the eastern parts of the country. While we’ll have a few more clouds, temperatures will start to be a touch cooler. Highs range from the upper 70s to the upper 80s. On Friday, the ridge has been completely replaced by the trough, and a cold front is progged to move through the area. For now, it looks to be moisture starved and only a very small chance of a few showers will be possible. Highs in the mid 70s to the mid 80s.

It will actually feel like fall for the weekend after the cold front moves through. Saturday will have a mix of clouds with highs in the upper 60s to the lower 80s. Sunday will feature a little bit more sunshine with highs in the upper 60s to the upper 70s.

Rena became a remnant low on Sunday evening and is no longer a tropical cyclone.

The center of Tropical Storm Philippe was
located near latitude 16.6 North, longitude 59.1 West. Philippe is moving toward the west-northwest near 5 mph (7 km/h). A track toward the northwest is forecast on Monday followed by a northward motion by late Tuesday. On the forecast track, the center of Philippe is expected to pass near or just northeast of the northern Leeward Islands on Monday and Monday night. Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts. Little change in strength is forecast during the next 48 hours, but Philippe could begin to intensify more significantly around the middle of the week. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 175 miles (280 km), primarily east and southeast of the center. The estimated minimum central pressure is 998 mb (29.47 inches).
