Alabama Skies: Next weather event coming more into focus

Published 10:47 pm Thursday, October 26, 2023

This weekend is shaping up to be more of the same weather we’ve had the past several days. We’ll be mostly sunny, breezy, and warm. Humidity levels are increasing, but it’s not going to be July or August levels. Friday night high school games should be comfortable. Saturday tailgating will be on the warm side so take plenty of water and non-alcoholic beverages.

We still have widespread fire danger, so avoid bonfires and burning after cleaning the yard.

The next weather event we’re expecting early next week is coming more into focus. Right now, a few places will get some rain, but we really don’t think anyone will get enough precipitation to make much of a difference. We will, however, cool down significantly! Temperatures are trending lower with every model run.

With warm temps, people are still heading to the beaches. Be cautious, though! Rip current potential is high this weekend.
