BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - OVERNIGHT AND TOMORROW: Another surge of dry air is settling into the state tonight and this will make for a comfortable start in the morning, with lows in the 60s The dry air will allow temperatures to rise quickly tomorrow, with highs back in the mid to upper 90s. It is going to feel less muggy tomorrow so this will help with the heat index levels. You can expect a mostly sunny sky, with a light north wind.

WHAT TO EXPECT NEXT WEEK: You can expect more sunshine for Monday, with another toasty afternoon. There will be a slight increase in the muggy levels on Tuesday, with a few isolated afternoon storms or showers possible. Otherwise, dry weather will be the story for the rest of the work-week, with lots of sunshine, and highs in the mid to upper 90s for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. The chance for afternoon showers and storms will return on Saturday as another cold front approaches the region. This will bring an increasing chance for a passing shower or storm next Sunday.

THE LATEST ON THE TROPICS: Dorian will be producing hurricane force sustained winds over Nova Scotia overnight. Dorian will continue to move northeast and away from the United States as the system transitions into a mid-latitude cyclone. Tropical Storm Gabrielle will remain over the central Atlantic. However, there is a tropical wave over the eastern Atlantic we continue to monitor. It is now several hundred miles west of the Cabo Verde Islands and there is a 50% chance of formation within the next five days as it continues west over the Atlantic. We will keep you posted as this system moves west. I will be sharing the latest tropical model guidance after the game tonight on WBRC Fox6.
