First Alert: Heating up this week and staying mainly dry
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - I hope you enjoyed the below normal weather the past several days because the upcoming week will trend above normal. Highs in the middle and upper 80s will be common and lows in the lower to middle 60s, except for tomorrow morning.
You’ll have to water your fall garden this week because Mother Nature doesn’t help some of us out until October 3rd and 4th. It looks like a cold front will move in around that time frame and cause widely scattered showers and storms to develop. I don’t see a severe threat connected with this activity at this time. If something changes though, we will give you the First Alert.
The tropics remain active with 3 tropical disturbances we are monitoring and Major Cat 4 Hurricane Sam. Two disturbances near the equator and between Africa and the Leeward Islands have a high chance of formation over the next 5 days. Long range data does not show these systems impacting the US, including Hurricane Sam. Sam is forecast to miss Puerto Rico and the Islands and track in the direction of Bermuda late week. The GFS model which has handled the tropical systems well this year, still shows it missing the island. Keep up with the latest forecast track via the WBRC First Alert Weather App.
