We begin another day with clear skies and temps for most of us in the 70s.
Look for another mostly clear to partly cloudy day. It is expected to be a little bit warmer today, with highs averaging in the mid-90s...and east winds around 5-to-10 mph.
Tonight should be partly cloudy...lows in the mid-70s...and light winds.
The tropical depression in the Gulf is now forecast to move slightly farther north than earlier expected. This has the potential to bring some rain into south/southeast Alabama in the Thursday to midday Friday time frame. So, some of our far southeastern counties could be affected by some showers from this system. The rest of us should remain dry throughout the rest of our 7-day forecast.
A slow moving frontal boundary that is helping to steer this tropical system away from us is also expected to bring us cooler, drier air by the week's end. Instead of highs in the 90s, look for highs in the upper 80s by week's end and going into midweek next week...lows should drop into the 60s.
Skies should be mostly clear throughout the extended holiday weekend and into next week.
Have a nice hump day!
