Few Showers Possible Tomorrow, Dry Week Ahead. Forecast update #alwx @wvua23

7 Day -10PM SHOW.pngHappy Game day everyone! If you’re celebrating a team victory tonight it will be absolutely wonderful weather. Lows will drop back into the upper 60s to low 70s.
With dewpoints low and clear skies it will feel great.

Tomorrow expect highs to reach into the low 90s with lots of sunshine. A few scattered showers will be possible for the day but any rain won’t last long and the sun will be a few minutes behind. Most areas will stay dry and the day will be mostly sunny. Like this evening and the past few days, the air is drier than our typical summer afternoon would be so it won’t be as oppressive.

Labor day through Saturday will be mirror days to each other. Plenty of sunshine and hot afternoons in the low 90s with evenings in the upper 60s to low 70s.

Hurricane Dorian’s path has shifted more east and fortunately now is not expected to make a direct hit on the Florida peninsula! Great news! HOWEVER, they will still experience strong damaging winds from the outer bands of the hurricane and lots of rain that could cause flooding. They are not in the clear of severe weather, it just won’t be as catastrophic as what would happen if it did make landfall. It will follow the coastline up the US this week.

10am Saturday: Dorian’s path is Shifting East!

At 10am Saturday, Dorian is nearing category 5 status, but the news is looking much better for Florida, as the path keeps shifting east. Still a close call, so people in Florida and the SE Atlantic coast need to be on guard.

7am Saturday Look at Hurricane Dorian

At 7am, NHC has winds at 145mph with Hurricane Dorian. Dorian is moving west. While not out of the woods yet, any additional east shift would be good for Florida. No issues for Alabama. #alwx @wvua23

Great Looking Labor Day Weekend in BAMA… Watching Hurricane Dorian… Friday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Good Friday afternoon! Our local weather has been beautiful again today, under a sunny sky. Temperatures will drop into the 60s again tonight, under a clear sky.

Labor Day weekend includes plenty of sunshine, with hot temperatures. Highs will reach the low 90s, with overnight lows generally near 70. I can’t rule out a stray shower or storm, but most areas will remain dry.

Hurricane Dorian is now a major hurricane, approaching category 4 status. Dorian will hit the southeast coast of Florida, near or north of Miami on Monday, as a category 4 hurricane, winds near 140mph.

After landfall on the Atlantic side of Florida, Dorian will turn due north and move into Georgia sometime Wednesday into Thursday.

Dorian is NOT expected to move in the Gulf. There is zero evidence there will be any impact along the Florida Panhandle, Alabama Coast or Mississippi Coast. There will be NO impact for any part of the state of Alabama, in-fact, we’ll have sunny skies this weekend through next week state-wise. Any issues will be confined to the Florida Peninsula and east Georgia.

If you have Labor Day plans in Alabama and the AL coast and Florida Panhandle, enjoy your plans!

Low Humidity for Now… Watching Tropics… Thursday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Good Thursday afternoon! As forecasted, humidity is much lower today, with dewpoints in the 50s. Expect a fast drop in temperatures tonight, due to the dry airmass. Lows will reach the low 60s in most spots, with a few upper 50s not out of the question.

Friday will include mild temperatures, but humidity will be low. Dewpoints will drop into the 50s, which will give the less humid feel to the air. We’ll top out in the upper 80s to near 90 both afternoons.

Labor Day weekend looks seasonal here, with a few spotty afternoon storms. We’ll reach the lower 90s for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The risk of spotty storms will arrive on Sunday and Monday.

In the tropics, we have hurricane Dorian, with winds sustained at 85mph. Hurricane Hunters are in the storm now and will be giving updated information within the next hour or two. Confidence is high that Dorian will impact Florida late Sunday and Monday, as potentially a category 4! Confidence is increasing that Dorian will turn north over Florida, rather than cross Florida and move into the Gulf. We’ll keep an eye on it, but no signs this will be an impact on our area.
