MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Tonight will offer our most comfortable air in over a week, as temperatures drop into the mid 60s across central and south Alabama. Enjoy it, because temperatures will be climbing back close to triple digits by the weekend! Temperatures soar into the 95-100 degree range for the foreseeable future. If there’s a silver lining, it’s that humidity levels will stay lower than a typical Summer pattern, so it could be worse.
The weather will be VERY hot for college football games across the state this weekend, including home games for Alabama and Auburn, and of course the big Labor Day Classic game between Tuskegee and ASU. Stay hydrated and find as much shade as you can!
The chance of rain stays near zero through at least early next week.
Dorian Update: The long-lived powerful hurricane is pounding the Carolinas tonight and tomorrow; life-threatening storm surge, flooding and tornadoes remain likely overnight and into much of Friday. But, the storm will speed away from the coast tomorrow afternoon, and conditions should improve in the Carolinas this weekend.
Our weather stays hotter than normal through the end of next week. And, the tropics remain very active; there are numerous waves of storms that could potentially develop over the next week or so. There’s no imminent threat to the U.S. after Dorian departs, but I doubt that we are done with hurricane season just yet.
