BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Ian is now a post-tropical system, which means the system is losing its tropical characteristics. That said, Ian continues to produce tropical storm force wind gusts and heavy rain over the Mid-Atlantic region. As Ian stays well east of Alabama, a very dry north flow continues. Temperatures will tumble into the upper 40s and low 50s again for Saturday morning. So, plan for a very chilly start to the day. The good news is temperatures will quickly rebound, with a sunny sky, and comfortable afternoons.

The big weather story in the days ahead will be the dry setup, with low humidity, and breezy conditions, creating very dangerous fire weather conditions. Please avoid burning and be extra careful when it comes to fire safety. You can expect more sunny weather for next week, with daytime temperatures near average, and cooler than average overnight temperatures.

Perfect weather is also expected at Auburn, Arkansas, and Houston for the big college games this weekend. Plan for temperatures in the 70s at Talladega Sunday afternoon. While temps may be cooler, don’t forget the sunscreen!
