Alabama Skies: Plenty of sunshine Sunday, but one region has the chance for some storms

Published 9:23 pm Saturday, September 9, 2023

Most of us will stay dry on Sunday, but others may have some isolated showers or storms. For the northern part of the state, we’ll be mostly sunny with temperatures remaining in the 80s. Central Alabama will also be mostly sunny with highs in the 80s, but there is the chance for a few isolated showers or storms, especially after 4 p.m. and into the evening. We’re not expecting anything widespread, but there is the chance.

South Alabama and the Gulf Coast will also be dry. Temperatures won’t be as comfortable as those in northern parts of the state, but we’ll still be below 100 degrees.

In the Atlantic, we’re still watching Major Hurricane Lee march westward; however, the cone and official forecast track from the National Hurricane Center is finally picking up on that hard turn to the north. We certainly don’t wish the destruction of a Category 4 or 5 hurricane on anyone else. The best we can hope for would be the forecast models showing the storm to curve and stay out of sea are correct, but it’s now looking like most of the reputable models are showing agreement that the storm won’t impact us.
