A good Friday to you! Our football forecast is looking better than the mess we dealt with last Friday. However, there are a few storms moving in from the northwest. These storms are small and won’t last long. If it rains at your stadium tonight, don’t expect anything to last more than 30 minutes. The good news is that a strong cold front is moving in and will bring a big change to our weather. This is just in time for the first kickoff of the 2010 Alabama Football Season.
Once the cold front moves in tonight, we can expect a refreshing airmass to move in. Temperatures will only top out in the middle 80s on Saturday. Sunny skies and low humidity can be expected through Wednesday. The big difference you’re going to notice is during the overnight hours. We’re expecting low 50s both Saturday and Sunday night. With temperatures in the lower 50s at night, conditions will actually feel a bit chilly. High pressure settles over the southeast for our Labor Day Weekend, which means we’ll continue the dry and cooler weather. Temperatures during the afternoon will feel pleasant due to the lower humidity. Temperatures moderate next week into the lower 90s. Lows at night will recover back into the 60s by Tuesday and Wednesday.
The tropics continue to be active, as Earl races up the eastern seaboard. The good news is that Earl is staying a little further away from the coast than expected, so the strongest winds are offshore. The rest of the tropics are fairly active, with Tropical Storm Fiona and the remnants of Gaston. Both of these features are not posing a threat to the US Mainland at this time.
