MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Today kicks off hurricane awareness week and folks in and around Montgomery have a great opportunity for some hands on learning. Thursday, May 10th, The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Hurricane Hunters will be in the capital city as a part of their 2018 Hurricane Awareness Tour.

Free, public tours will be between 2 pm and 5 pm at Montgomery Regional Airport (Dannelly Field). Attendees will be able to tour two of the Hurricane Hunter's aircraft, speak with the crew and meet meteorologist from the National Weather Service and personnel from other local and state agencies.

Thankfully there's no imminent threat of a tropical system for Alabama. After a cloudy day Saturday with a few showers, it's nice to be back in a brighter setting. Sunshine will dominate our day and push temperatures up into the mid 80s for most areas this afternoon.

If you're a fan of this weather then you're in luck. Our weather will be stuck in repeat for the next week. The only difference we'll go through is with our temperatures. Each day will be just a touch warmer than the day before. Eventually will be near 90 degrees for an afternoon high Wednesday and Thursday.
