The Idalia region lies northeast, and Alabama experiences drier weather

Idalia has weakened to a tropical storm and continues east. Alabama becomes drier and cooler with morning lows dropping into the 60s. Some rain develops by Friday. Check the video forecast for the latest news. Idalia weakens due to tropical storm Idalia officially made landfall at 6:45 a.m. Wednesday along the coast of Florida’s Big Bend near Keaton Beach. Although Idalia strengthened into a Category 4 hurricane with winds of 130 mph a few hours before landfall, winds were estimated at 125 mph, a Category 3 storm, at the time of landfall. Now a tropical storm, Idalia continues to weaken as it moves toward the northeast, impacting Georgia and the Carolinas. The core of Idalia is expected to move into the Atlantic Ocean on Thursday and gain an east-southeast direction. The current forecast track takes Idalia further out into the Atlantic Ocean over the weekend where it continues to weaken. Although Alabama has not received any direct impacts from Idalia, the current rupture risk is high for Alabama and northwest Florida beaches through Thursday night. Short-Term Forecast Isolated showers will develop over eastern Alabama this evening but most of us will remain rain-free. As Idalia turns east, a steady northerly flow pattern brings drier air to Alabama through Thursday. The clouds will dissipate throughout the night and the drier air will drop dew points keeping us cooler and more comfortable. Temperatures will drop into the low 60s in central Alabama with places in north Alabama closer to the 50s before sunrise Thursday morning. Expect a better supply of sunshine on Thursday with highs in the mid 80s and a fresh northerly breeze. COLLEGE FOOTBALL KICKOFF THURSDAY NIGHT You don’t get nice weather like this for the first home games at Samford and UAB very often. UAB hosts North Carolina A&T at Preventive Stadium on Thursday night, and hosts Samford Shorter at Seibert Stadium. Temperatures drop from around 80 degrees at kickoff to the mid-70s in the fourth quarter. We get clear skies and a gentle northerly breeze with very low humidity. FRIDAY, FOOTBALL AND THE WEEKEND A slight shift in wind direction brings more humidity to Alabama on Friday, and there will be some scattered showers and storms Friday afternoon and evening. It’s still hot, with high temperatures in the upper 80s and lower 90s, but the high school football weather looks light years better than last week. Expect temperatures in the 70s with light southeast winds and partly cloudy skies. Saturday, Sunday, and Monday all look pretty typical for Labor Day weekend: hot afternoon with little chance of a brief shower or storm, high temperatures near 90 degrees, humid air that keeps it humid at night, plenty of sunshine. Sun, look for clearer weather than clouds during the first part next week: highs in the lower 90s and lows overnight in the 70s.
