Alabama Skies: Tropical Storm Philippe heading west; taste of fall heading south

Published 10:25 pm Wednesday, September 27, 2023

Although we have very little chance of rain the next few days, we do get a taste of autumn very soon.

We’re watching some much less humid air moving south. The resulting air will really get folks ready to pull out the fall decorations and pull out the chili pot. Unfortunately, the comfortable air will only stick around a day and a half or so, so we’ll be right back into humid air and summer-like real-feel temps.

We’re also watching Tropical Storm Phillippe make its turn nearly due west. Although the projected cone looks like it may eventually become a threat, models show the storm weakening quite a bit. We’ll see what happens in a few days.
