Heating up as we head into Fall

Above average temperatures and below normal rain chances return

Amanda: Sunday evening forecast update

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Pleasant: that’s the best adjective to describe our weather the past couple of days. No record-breaking heat, no super muggy air... just sunshine, cool mornings and warm afternoons. While this month has been filled with above average heat, it looks like we will get one more near-seasonable day before the forecast starts to trend hotter!

This was our last day of easterly wind, meaning high pressure will slowly pull away... that means another warm up is on the way soon! Nights we remain mostly clear, comfortably and maybe even a little cool as many dip into the 60s at our lowest point.

While our quiet weather pattern is expected to continue, that may not be good news for Alabama and our current drought situation.

We need rain badly and there doesn’t look to be any major changes to our forecast; both short and long term forecasts point to this situation actually getting worse through the end of the month. A few showers are possible, many spots will likely remain mostly dry all of next week.

Remember - at 2:50 a.m Monday, Fall will officially begin... that is the precise moment the sun will be directly in line with the equator!

Tropical Update: As of Sunday night, we have a trio of systems to track... Tropical Storm Jerry, Tropical Storm Karen and Tropical Depression 13. None of the previously mentioned storms have any chance of impacting us in the short term, but we will be watching them all!
