OH SO NICE!!!: High pressure remains firmly in control of the weather across the Deep South from the Mississippi River to the Carolina Coast and our weather will remain dry likely through Halloween.
Expect mainly sunny, warm days and clear and cool nights. Temperatures will be in the upper 70s to mid 80s through the end of the month, while nights will range from the mid-50s to lower 60s.
With the lack of rain, drought conditions will continue to intensify. Due to low relative humidity values/dry air in place as well as the dry soil, fires will be able to start easily today. Dispose of cigarettes properly, avoid leaving fires unattended, avoid dragging chains, and don’t do any outdoor burning.
FOOTBALL WEATHER: The sky will be clear for the high school games across Alabama Friday night with temperatures falling from the mid 70s at kickoff into the upper 60s by the quarter.
For Saturday’s Magic City Classic in Birmingham (Alabama State vs Alabama A&M, 2:30p CT kickoff at Legion Field)… the sky will be partly to mostly sunny with temperatures in the low to mid 80s. It will be a warm October afternoon.
Auburn hosts Mississippi State (2:30p CT kickoff) at Jordan Hare Stadium… dry and warm weather is the story with temperatures in the 81-84 degree for most of the game. The sky will be mostly sunny.
NEXT WEEK: A cold front will bring a chance of showers on Tuesday (Halloween) or Wednesday, but it doesn’t look like a big rain event at this point with rainfall totals less than one-half inch. The front will stall down along the Coast. Behind the front, the coolest air so far this season will roll into the state for the second half of the week. Highs will drop into the 50s and 60s, while lows will hold in the 40s.
IN THE TROPICS: We still have Hurricane Tammy. Tammy is moving toward the northeast near 8 mph, and this general motion is expected to continue through Wednesday. A turn toward the north at a slower forward speed is forecast to begin on Thursday, followed by a bend to the northwest on Friday. Maximum sustained winds are near 75 mph with higher gusts. Slight strengthening is possible during the next day or so followed by steady weakening. Tammy is forecast to become a post-tropical cyclone on Thursday. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles. The estimated minimum central pressure is 987 mb (29.15 inches).
Tropical Depression Twenty-one moved onshore and has dissipated over Central America. The rest of the basin is quiet. Hurricane season ends November 30th and the remaining names on list this year are Vince and Whitney.
