MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - September can be a great weather month for Alabama: cool, comfortable mornings followed by warm afternoons with sunshine, does it get any better than that?! It gives everyone who lives here a little taste of fall while still feeling a bit like late summertime. There are also some downsides to weather this time of year in the Deep South... tropical moisture can rear its ugly head, making us feel more like July or August. Our forecast will start to transition back into a muggier and hotter pattern soon, but does it feature any tropical troubles?

Latest on what we are tracking in the tropics: The National Hurricane Center has initiated its first advisory on Tropical Storm Nicholas...

NEW: Tropical Storm Nicholas has formed in the Gulf!

This looks to remain at tropical storm strength before making landfall along the Texas coastline Tuesday morning; from there, it’s slow progression off towards the north means this could be a big rain maker for western portions of the Gulf Coast.

Rain chances locally Monday through Thursday are running around 20-50%; it’s possible those will be adjusted a bit as we learn more about our system in the Gulf.

Temperatures will come down a touch from the lower 90s on Monday to the middle and upper 80s for the remainder of the week. That’s directly related to the increased rain chances.

Overnight lows will come back up into the lower 70s.
