Fall Is Officially Here!
We welcomed in Fall with a milder morning compared to yesterday, with morning lows mostly in the low to mid 60s, with eastern valleys cooling into the mid to upper 50s. Despite the warmer start to the day, the warming trend is about to end, right on cue with the Autumnal Equinox that occurred this morning at 9:49 am. A cold front is already moving into northwest Alabama and will be moving across the Tennessee Valley throughout the day. Due to not much moisture in our current air mass, there are no showers, or even cloud cover for that matter associated with the front. Most will stay dry and mostly sunny today, with the best chance for a little more cloud cover and maybe even a few sprinkles/brief light shower being in farther south and east. Below is a look a the latest satellite, radar and temperatures across the region as of 10:30 am.
High temperatures will range in the upper 70s and low 80s. Once the front moves through, the wind will shift out of the northwest and will start ushering in some cooler and drier air. As you wake up Sunday morning it will be chilly, clear and crisp with temperatures cooling into the mid to upper 40s again! High temperatures Sunday will only warm into the low to mid 70s, about 10 degrees below average for late September. Monday will be similar to Sunday, with morning lows in the 40s and highs in the mid 70s. A slow warming trend will ensue throughout the work week, with temperatures at or slightly above seasonal averages for this time of year. No significant rain chances are in the forecast over the next several days, with most staying dry.
