Above Average Heat Continues

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - It was another scorcher of a day in Alabama! Montgomery tied its record high temperature of 100°, originally set back in 1925. Pretty much all of central and south Alabama came close to 100°, which is much warmer than what’s normal for this time of year - September 8th’s average high temperature is only 89°!

A warm night is now underway with lows in the mid 70s.

A few welcomed showers and storms popped on radar this evening. Our radar will look similar tomorrow, with pop-up showers and storms possible Monday and Tuesday. Still, most will stay dry. Everyone will feel brutally hot for September.

The Tropics are active as we approach the peak of hurricane season. A system heading towards the Bahamas has a low chance of developing over the next 5 days. Another system heading towards the Leeward Islands has a medium chance of development. Tropical Storm Gabrielle is not a threat to the United States; instead it will head towards Ireland. Post-Tropical Cyclone Dorian has finally weakened below hurricane strength and is impacting the east coast of Canada.
