MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Hi, this is FOX10 News Meteorologist Matt Barrentine.

Record highs for the first day of fall! An upper-level ridge will cause temps to soar today into the upper 90s. It will be dry and sunny, but very hot.

The good news is that this is the last day of the heat wave, The upper-level high breaks down as we head to the weekend. It will still be hot, lower 90s, but the worst will have passed.

A cold front next Monday will bring temperatures back to more seasonable levels for next week.

We are closely monitoring a disturbance in the southeast Caribbean. This system is still weak, but it will likely grow and become a hurricane named Hermine as it moves due west across the Caribbean.

This storm will be headed towards the Gulf late next week. It’s too early to know exactly where it ends up making landfall, but we need to be watching closely because this storm will be a serious threat and will very likely impact the U.S.
