Alabama Skies: Hurricane Lee is a monster! Is the northern turn still expected?
Published 8:13 pm Thursday, September 7, 2023
Hurricane Lee has exploded into a Category 4 Major storm with sustained winds of 130 miles per hour. Some models have the storm becoming a Category 5, still strengthening with plenty of Atlantic Ocean to cover.
Right now, we have some great news about the storm and our weekend weather. A cold front is moving through the state, bringing much more comfortable humidity levels for most of us. We’ll also have some cooler temperatures, but not quite “cool” yet. We’ll have sunny skies across the state with temps in the mid-80s for the northern and central regions while we’ll hit 90 in the southern region. Football weather is going to be quite nice compared to where we started!
That same front is expected to cause Hurricane Lee to make a hard right turn, heading north. Many models have the storm staying out to see, but a couple show the storm could head towards New England or Canada’s coast.
