Alabama Skies: Frontal system heading our way! How cool will we get next week?
Published 10:55 pm Saturday, August 12, 2023
Although Sunday continues our stretch of oppressive heat and humidity, we are finally seeing a break on the horizon! We’ve been watching forecast models hinting at a front for several day and we’re becoming more confident cooler weather next week may really happen for some of us!
How cool it gets and where really depends on how far south the front will be able to travel. Right now, we’re looking at highs around 80 or 81 for north Alabama Tuesday and Wednesday with some places dropping into the 50s for lows Tuesday night!
It’s looking like places as far south as Montgomery may drop to around 90 for a high Wednesday with lows into the 60s. Unfortunately, we won’t have much of a break in the heat in southern Alabama and near the beaches this round.
We’ll be back to oppressive temps by Thursday or Friday, but most of us will finally get a taste of the end of the long summer, at least for a day or two.
