Alabama Skies: Outstanding weather for some on Saturday. Who will be able to cut back on the a/c?

If you’re one of thousands of people breaking the personal budget on air conditioning the past several weeks, you’re certainly watching the forecast for better weather. The good news is that weather is here for some of us.
Parts of Alabama will only reach the lower 80s Saturday, and that’s under sunny skies. The mid-80s will stretch all the way down into central Alabama. Unfortunately, there are also plenty of places in south central and southern Alabama that will reach into the mid-90s again, but humidity levels are much more comfortable.
Of course, the long-term forecast can and often does change in the Gulf South, but it’s showing promise. Right now, we’re seeing a stretch of hot days next week, but there is hope on the horizon. By this time next week, forecast models are showing cooler temperatures at night with more comfortable highs across the state. We’ll see if that happens. Anyone from here knows we can have July-like temps all the way into October.
Models are still showing Major Hurricane Lee making a turn away from the United States. The cold front that brought less humid air to Alabama is expected to help make that turn happen next week.
