MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A little early Fall "warm" wave is back for the next few days. I'll refrain from calling it "heat" wave, because this really isn't all that bad. But still, those who were hoping our 90 degree days were done are going to be disappointed...
TODAY: Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies will dominate a rather quiet Monday forecast. Afternoon temperatures will climb into the upper 80s to near 90 degrees without any real threat for rain.
Even without the rain, local pollen counts haven't been quite as bad as recent weeks. This week's forecast calls pollen counts in the moderate category all week.
REST OF THE WEEK: We'll stick with highs around 90 through Wednesday before falling into the upper 80s by late week. There's no threat for rain all week, unfortunately.
HURRICANE MATTHEW: Dangerous Hurricane Matthew will be approaching the Jamaica/Haiti split late tonight into early tomorrow morning before slamming into Cuba Tuesday afternoon. This will be a major hurricane with major impacts. The Bahamas are next in line Wednesday into Thursday. A still uncertain track is keeping many east coast residents uneasy into the weekend.
HEADS UP! If you live/work in Pike & Crenshaw counties, be on the lookout for our test alert around 3pm. You'll receive the notification on your WSFA Weather App. If you get the alert (regardless of which county you're in), please let us know on Facebook. We'll cover Dale & Geneva counties on Tuesday.
