Mostly Dry for Remainder of Labor Day Weekend…Tropics Update…Saturday Evening Update 8:10p.m.

Good Saturday evening! The few showers we saw late this afternoon are coming to an end this evening. Despite a few areas catching some rain, most remained dry and saw ample amounts of sunshine. Tonight, after the remaining showers end, a few clouds stick around, but skies will remain mostly clear. Tomorrow will be similar to today with most remaining dry and temperatures warming into the low to mid 90’s; a few across central Alabama will catch a stray shower or two though.

Monday, Labor Day, will continue to keep the opportunity for a shower, and temperatures will continue to warm up. For those with outdoor plans for the holiday, don’t worry! Any chances for rain will be very low. Just keep an eye on radar during the day. If you do catch any rain, it likely won’t last very long.

Next work week and next weekend still keep the chance for a pop-up shower, but the big topic will be the temperature. Highs by Wednesday will be in the mid 90’s and heat indices will likely be in, or close to, the triple digits.

Turning to the tropics, Hermine is now off the east coast, and is moving northeast in the Atlantic. Over the coming days, Hermine will likely restrengthen now that the post tropical system will have new fuel from the warm water in the Atlantic to feed off of. Despite Hermine getting a second wind, conditions are going to be tough for the system to really grow; in fact, conditions are going to be tough for the system as it approaches the coast near New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut that it may disorganize and be reclassified as a tropical storm.

Another low pressure system is currently moving into the Caribbean, but likely not develop into a classified system. Conditions there are very unfavorable and are limiting growth for the system.
