3 min read

Another sunny, gorgeous fall day across Alabama as highs climb into the upper 70s to low 80s this afternoon. Another clear and chilly night with widespread low 50s in the forecast. We stay dry tomorrow with a high near 80° for most Alabama communities.

SOME RAIN WEDNESDAY: A feature loaded with tropical moisture, will bring a beneficial rain event to South Alabama on Wednesday. The most widespread and heaviest rain will be south of U.S. 80 (Demopolis to Montgomery to Opelika), where 1-3 inches are likely. Some light rain is possible as far north as I-59 (Tuscaloosa to Birmingham to Gadsden). The northern third of the state will likely miss the rain completely. Thursday will be a dry with a partly sunny sky; the high will be in the 70s for most places.

FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND: An approaching cold front will bring a chance of showers statewide Friday and Friday night. Unfortunately it looks like rain amounts will be rather light and spotty with limited moisture available. Then, the sky will clear Saturday morning, and Sunday will feature sunshine in fully supply. The high Saturday will be in the 70-75 degree range, then dropping into the 60s Sunday.

NEXT WEEK: For now most of the week looks dry with sunny pleasant days and clear cool nights; highs will be mostly in the 60s with lows in the 40s. More fantastic fall weather for all of Alabama.

IN THE TROPICS: We have two features: In the far Eastern Tropical Atlantic, Invest 92L is a low-latitude tropical wave located several hundred miles south of the Cabo Verde Islands continues to produce a large area of showers and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions appear conducive for additional development of this system during the next several days. A tropical depression is likely to form around midweek while it moves west-northwestward or northwestward across the eastern tropical Atlantic. Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…60 percent. Formation chance through 7 days…high…80 percent.

In the Southwestern Gulf of Mexico, shower and thunderstorm activity has increased with a small area of low pressure over the extreme southwestern Gulf of Mexico about 100 miles north of Coatzacoalcos, Mexico. Environmental conditions appear marginally favorable for some additional development while the system moves slowly northward before the low merges with a frontal system over the western Gulf of Mexico by midweek. Formation chance through 7 days…low…20 percent.

The remaining names on list this year are Sean, Tammy, Vince, and Whitney.
