Cooler, drier the rest of the week

First Alert Forecast

Overnight will be quiet and mild with temperatures falling into the low 60s. The work week wraps up nicely with a comfortable walk out the door in the morning and a warm afternoon with a mix of sun and clouds.

The latest drought monitor came out today, and it shows that most of north Alabama is abnormally dry, with a for most of Jackson County and a portion of Marshall County. Conditions stay dry for the rest of this week. The next chance for rain does not come until Monday as a cold front approaches. Chances for rain Monday and Tuesday are slim, and will not do much to alleviate the parched conditions for the Tennessee Valley. Be very careful with any outdoor burning, and continue to monitor the dry conditions because most of next week also looks dry.

After most of September’s highs peaking in the 90s, it looks like 80s will be hanging around for the next few days. Temperatures will still be above average as the first day of fall approaches, but the mornings will be pleasant with the days starting off in the low to mid-60s.
