Temperatures are cooling off fast thanks to dry air in place and a clear sky. A First Alert remains in effect for fog forming overnight and visibility dropping below a mile in some areas by morning. The thickest fog is likely between 6 and 8 a.m. Allow extra drive time in the morning to account for this foggy potential. Kelsey will let you know how it’s impacting travel on Good Day Alabama.
Temperatures start off Friday morning on the refreshing side, though we will warm into the middle 80s by afternoon. The heat and humidity gradually builds through the weekend ahead of our next cold front. There is just a small chance for pop up showers across east Alabama on Friday afternoon otherwise it looks dry through Saturday.
On Sunday, the cold front approaches from the west and causes widely scattered showers and storms to form. I bumped the chance to 30%. For those out in Talladega, you might want to consider bringing a poncho just in case.
The cooler air behind the front arrives on Monday and it will be breezy too. Seasonal lows in the 50s and highs in the 70s are expected through most of all of next week. The coolest morning looks to set up on Tuesday with many locations in the 40s.
It looks dry too so you’ll have to continue to water your lawn and garden.
Hurricane Ophelia is a Cat 2 with 100 mph winds and one of the strongest hurricanes that far east in the Atlantic during the month of October since Ivan in 1980. Ophelia is forecast to track towards Ireland and remain a hurricane upon impact by Monday.
