Good Monday afternoon! We are just a few hours away from the kickoff to the Fall Season… Fall officially begins at 9:29pm this evening. A cold front moved through central Alabama during the pre-dawn hours this morning, with conditions becoming drier and drier as the day progressed. Dewpoints are in the middle to upper 40s in our area, which is making conditions feel wonderful! We can expect temperatures to rapidly drop after sunset, with most locations in the upper 70s at 7pm, middle 60s at 10pm and upper 50s by midnight. Lows tonight will reach the lower to middle 50s across all of west and central Alabama.

We can expect a stretch of nice weather between now and Friday, as high pressure sets up over the Ohio River Valley. A surface wind will remain out of the north or northeast all week, which will allow dry air and pleasant conditions to continue to flow into Alabama. Look for a good supply of sun each day, with highs in the lower 80s and lows in the 50s. Temperatures will gradually warm into the lower 60s Thursday night and Friday night.

A disturbed area in the Gulf of Mexico will lift northward on Sunday and Monday, introducing the risk of scattered rain and storms to west and central Alabama. I don’t expect an all day type of rain event, but models suggest most of the area will pick up a decent rain event on Sunday and Monday, With more clouds than sun, temperatures both days will struggle to reach the lower 80s.

The tropics are quiet…
