Showers End Early This Morning; Dry Weekend Ahead

3 min read

RADAR CHECK: We have a few scattered showers across parts of Central Alabama ahead of a cold front early this morning… the showers are generally south of a line from Roanoke to Prattville to Sweetwater just before sunrise.

They will move out of the state by mid-morning; otherwise the day will be dry with a partly to mostly sunny sky. Look for a high in the mid to upper 70s this afternoon.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: Expect sunny mild days and fair pleasant nights. The high tomorrow will be in the 75-80 degree range for most places, followed by low to mid 70s Sunday.

NEXT WEEK: We need rain badly across Alabama, but we won’t get any through the week as dry conditions continue. Highs will be mostly in the 70s, with lows in the 50s. Still looking like we will have to wait until early November before we see the next meaningful rain event. See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.

FOOTBALL WEATHER: For the high school games tonight we expect a clear sky with temperatures falling from near 65 at kickoff, into the upper 50s by the final whistle.

Tomorrow, UAB will host Memphis at Protective Stadium in downtown Birmingham (11a CT kickoff)… the sky will be sunny with temperatures rising from near 72 at kickoff, to around 77 degrees by the fourth quarter.

Alabama hosts Tennessee at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa (2:30p CT kickoff). It will be a mild fall afternoon with temperatures in the mid to upper 70s.

And, Auburn will host Ole Miss tomorrow evening (6:00p CT kickoff) at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Expect a clear sky with temperatures falling from near 72 at kickoff, into the mid 60s by the final whistle.

TROPICS: Tropical Storm Tammy, with winds of 60 mph, is about 100 miles northeast of Barbados early this morning. It is expected to become a category one hurricane tomorrow as it moves over the Leewards Islands.

A Hurricane Watch is in effect for…
* Guadeloupe
* Antigua and Barbuda, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, and Anguilla
* St. Maarten
* St. Martin and St. Barthelemy

A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for…
* Dominica
* Guadeloupe
* Antigua and Barbuda, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, and Anguilla
* St. Maarten

Tammy will turn northward and will ultimately head out to sea next week well east of Bermuda. It is no threat to the U.S.

ON THIE DATE IN 1983: Remnants of Pacific Hurricane Tico caused extensive flooding in central and south central Oklahoma. Oklahoma City set daily rainfall records with 1.45 inch on the 19th, and 6.28 inches on the 20th.

ON THIS DATE IN 2004: Typhoon Tokage blasting across Japan triggers flash floods that wash away entire hillsides, killing 55 people and leaving at least 24 people missing.

No afternoon video briefing today; I will be live at Leeds High School for the Friday Night Rivals game of the week on ABC 33/40 (Moody at Leeds)… but I will post new forecast notes here by 3:00. Enjoy the day!
