Good Monday afternoon and Happy Halloween! Our local weather has turned out hot again across Alabama, with all of our area reporting middle to upper 80s. A few spots have touched 90 this afternoon, which has either tied or broken records for the date. A ridge of high pressure will keep our area how over the next couple of days before our next cold front is set to arrive.
Expect temperatures to drop into the upper 50s tonight, so if you have plans outdoors tonight, expect a pleasant evening after a hot afternoon. Skies will remain clear overnight, with a calm wind. Tuesday and Wednesday will feature hot days, with highs in the middle to upper 80s. As the ridge breaks down a bit, a cold front will pass through Alabama on Thursday. While it’s not out of the question someone will get a quick passing shower with the front, the risk of widespread rain is unlikely. My rain chance is only at 10%, which means you would be lucky to get a drop. This means drought conditions will continue to get worse, so do not burn! Wild fires have been popping up all across the state, and the wild fire danger will continue very high for the next 7 days.
Cooler air will take over on Friday, with highs dipping back into the middle 70s Friday through the weekend. Lows at night will drop into the middle 40s, which will feel great to the cool weather fans.
Don’t forget about the time change Saturday night/Sunday morning. The official change is at 2am Sunday morning, when you would set your clock back one hour. This also means it will get dark at 5pm Sunday and at that time through the rest of the winter…
