FIRST ALERT: A little milder tomorrow but just as nice
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - It’s a wonderful evening and temperatures are in the lower 60s and will fall again into the 50s by morning. Tomorrow afternoon will be a little warmer than today and top off in the lower 80s. Dry and comfy weather persists which is great news for those going to Homestead Hollow or the Alabama State Fair. If you are picking out your pumpkin and decorating for fall, the weather will be perfect for doing so.
This week, the dew points rise into the lower 60s which will mean milder overnight lows. It might feel a little muggy by the middle portion of the week but nothing too sweaty. Seasonal high temperatures return early in the week but by the end of the week temperatures could be slightly above normal and top off in the upper 80s.
If you just purchased Mums, and or Pansies, you better plan on watering them because Mother Nature won’t be helping you out any time soon. The only hints at rain chances I see are for next weekend and at this point it doesn’t look impressive. In terms of cloud cover, I see more clouds in the forecast towards the middle to late portion of the upcoming week.
The tropics remain active, which is normal for this time of year, though we are close to running out of names for storms. If that happens, we will go to a reserved name list and not the Greek Alphabet. Major Cat 4 Hurricane Sam is forecast to miss the Islands and Puerto Rico and track northwestward this week. It will curve towards Bermuda but likely miss it to the east and then head north towards Newfoundland by next weekend. Teresa is now just a remnant low to the north of Bermuda and there are 3 other disturbances we are watching that have a low or medium chance of formation, but they are way out in the Atlantic.
