A ridge is building across the Deep South, meaning dry weather is here to stay all week and through the weekend. We certainly need some rainfall across Alabama, but it just doesn’t look likely through the end of October. Drought conditions will continue to intensity with no rain expected through the end of the month.
Temperatures this week will be great with highs mostly in the upper 70s to lower 80s, with low ranging from the 40s into the 60s depending on your location across the state. The weather looks great for high school and college football games across the Deep South this weekend.
NEXT WEEK: Models suggest a cold front will bring a chance of showers on Tuesday (Halloween), but it doesn’t look like a big rain event at this point. Then, the coolest air so far this season will roll into the state by Wednesday and Thursday (November 1-2). Some frosts seems likely by the latter half of next week for portions of North/Central Alabama.
IN THE TROPICS: We still have Hurricane Tammy. Tammy is moving toward the north near 7 mph. A turn toward the north-northeast or northeast is expected to begin later today and continue into Tuesday. Maximum sustained winds are near 80 mph with higher gusts. Some slight strengthening is possible during the next day or so followed by weakening. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 125 miles. The estimated minimum central pressure is 993 mb (29.33 inches).
Also, we have Invest 95L in the Southwestern Caribbean Sea. Showers and thunderstorms continue to show signs of organization in association with a low pressure system located over the southwestern Caribbean Sea. Environmental conditions appear to be favorable for development, and a short-lived tropical depression could form before the system moves inland over Nicaragua by early Tuesday. Regardless of development, this system could produce heavy rains over portions of Central America during the next couple of days. Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…60 percent.
Hurricane season ends November 30th and the remaining names on list this year are Vince and Whitney.
