High pressure continues to influence our weather and will shift eastward with time today. Due to the clockwise flow around areas of high pressure and it being positioned to our northeast, winds will flow from the northeast and lightly today across Alabama. High pressure also has sinking air associated with it and that means little in the way of cloud cover. Temperatures will be running about 5-10° below normal today with highs in the lower 70s.
Heading to Talladega? Have sunscreen, sunglasses and perhaps a long sleeve and you should be good to go to enjoy the race!
Plan on working outside in the yard? If you are an allergy sufferer well you might notice your symptoms flaring up a bit today. Pollen count is moderate: 6.7.
Another cool night is on tap!
High pressure slides eastward and we'll be in between the departing high and an approaching cold front. Return flow sets up from the southwest and that means a minor warm up for us! Enjoy highs in the middle 70s on Monday and upper 70s by Tuesday.
Our next cool down is on Wednesday with lows back in the 40s and highs back in the lower 70s. The pattern looks dry through Halloween still. Long range models continue to hint at rain chances around November 2nd.
Enjoy the rest of the day,
