Daytime highs will climb to 5 degrees above average
MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Hi there, I’m FOX10 Meteorologist Jennifer Lambers with the latest look at your forecast.
It was a sunny start to begin your Monday, with clear skies and mild temperatures. Heading into this afternoon, plenty of sunshine will continue along the Gulf Coast, but this will lead to temperatures quickly heating up. Daytime highs today will be about 5 degrees above average, with many areas maxing out in the lower-to-mid 90s!
Heading into tonight, skies will stay clear and overnight lows will drop to the upper-60s and the lower-70s.
Looking ahead into the rest of the week, a warming trend is coming. Daytime highs will warm up, with many areas expecting to see afternoon temperatures in the mid-to-upper 90s! Our next shot at rain will come in the form of a cold front and is expected to push through late Sunday/next Monday.
Tracking the tropics, Hurricane Fiona is currently tracking over the Dominican Republic. This system is bringing heavy rain, gusty winds, and intense rip currents to the areas. Puerto Rico is still recovering after the system moved through yesterday. Fiona is expected to continue moving NNW, where it could strengthen into a major hurricane. After that it is expected to move towards Bermuda, possibly striking the island as a category 3 storm. We will continue to monitor. Looking at the rest of the Atlantic, there is only one area with low chances of development in the middle of the Atlantic. We will continue to watch.
Have a great week!
