Record Heat Possible for the Weekend

More WFLA Tracking the Tropics

MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) – Hurricane Dorian is making a second landfall near Cape Hatteras, North Carolina this morning with sustained winds of 90 MPH. The storm is expected to head off into the Atlantic later today.

Hurricane Dorian continues to bring dry hot weather to us with a northerly flow. Another HOT one today with highs in the mid 90’s and heat indexes above 100. A little hotter through the weekend. Each day should see temps reach the mid to upper 90’s and heat indexes above 100. We may finally get a tiny bit of moisture back by Sunday and have added some scattered T-storms for Sunday and the work week. Some added clouds each day should drop temps a few degrees for next week so highs should return to the lower 90’s.

Elsewhere in the tropics, there is plenty of activity, but there are no foreseeable threats here. There only named storm is Gabrielle and it may become a hurricane. However, it will move northwest into the central Atlantic and will be a fish storm. The disturbance near Bermuda that’s moving northeast has a low chance of developing. The disturbance just east of the Lesser Antilles has a low chance of developing and is not a threat to land. The disturbance that just came off the coast of Africa has a medium chance of developing, but if it were to do so, it would be a long while before it got close to any land. There is plenty of time to watch this one and is not a concern at the moment. The next name on the list is Humberto.
