Mobile, Ala. (WKRG) – Happy Labor Day!
Today begins the dry stretch that we will see for the next week or so due to the position of hurricane Dorian. Since our area is on the west side of the storm, with the way a hurricane rotates (counter-clockwise since it is low pressure), Dorian will bring us dry air from the north. This means little to no rain chance for our area for the next week. Because of this drier weather, our temperatures will increase to the mid to upper 90s. Areas along the Central Florida Coast north to the Carolina Coast still need to watch Dorians progress closely.
Hurricane Dorian is a strong category 4 and is stationary over the northern Bahamas. This is after it made landfall as a category 5 yesterday. Dorians impact to the northern Bahamas continues to be catastrophic. As for us, there will be no local impacts to our stretch of the Gulf Coast.
For tonight there may be a few stray showers early on, but as the night goes on rain will fade. Past midnight it’s just warm and clear with lows only dropping to the middle 70s. Tomorrow will get hot fast. By lunchtime, we’ll be in the lower 90s and most will top out in the middle 90s under sunny skies. Tomorrow night is clear once again with lows in the middle 70s. The weather we get tomorrow will be on repeat for the rest of the week, with the exception of more heat as highs will be in the middle to upper 90s with heat index values each day near 100, stay cool.
