MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - It was another blistering hot day... but some received much needed rain! Those who got a splash also got a quick cool-down. Unfortunately, from here, scorching temperatures stick around, but rain chances go down.
While we are not strangers to heat and humidity, these hot temperatures are not normal for this time of year... average highs for the second week of September usually fall back into the upper 80s. We’ll stay in the mid and upper 90s over the next several days.
Today was our best shot for rain; the rest of the workweek is drier. Temperatures will continue to stay warmer than normal over the next 7 days.
Tropic Update: Bye bye Dorian, but hello to the busiest part of Hurricane Season.
Tropical Storm Gabrielle is not a threat to the United States; instead it will head towards Ireland. A system heading towards the Bahamas has a low chance (20%) of developing over the next 5 days. Another nameless system heading towards the Leeward Islands also has a low chance (30%) of development. Finally, a third system is just now moving off the west coast of Africa and has a low chance (20%) of development over the next 5 days.
