Mobile, Ala. (WKRG) – Happy Sunday Gulf Coast!
It is the last week of September, but it certainly does not feel like it with continued hot and dry conditions. Tonight will be clear and comfortable with lows in the 70s.
Temperatures tomorrow will continue to be above-average in the low to mid 90s with isolated spots hitting the upper 90s. Again, rain chances will be slim-to-none.
This will stay the trend through your work week as a ridge of high pressure sits over the southeastern United States. Some long-range models are showing this ridge recede late this week or next weekend which could bring us a pattern shift with a little bit more rain and more seasonable temperatures. This could change, but we are monitoring the trends closely.
We are also continuing to monitor drought conditions, which are expected to worsen as this pattern continues. The state of Alabama is also still under a fire alert, making it illegal to burn grasslands, woodlands, and fields without a permit.

There is a MODERATE RISK of rip currents at the beach tomorrow, so be careful! This is expected to last through the week.
TROPICS: The only area we are watching in the tropics is Hurricane Lorenzo which is still a major hurricane. Hurricane Lorenzo is moving away from the United States, toward the Azores and Europe.
