A little chilly out there this morning! Dothan and surrounding cities dipped into the upper 40’s this Friday morning, after a low of 70 on Thursday! Frost Advisories have been issued to our north, as far south as Marengo County, AL, all the way up to Tupelo, and into the Birmingham area. Some lows will dip into the upper 30’s in North Alabama. For us in the Wiregrass, lows on Saturday will be between 44-47 by daybreak Saturday!
Sunny and breezy conditions will dominate the area Friday with Northerly winds 10-15 mph. The forecast remains dry through Monday. Temperatures will warm to the mid and upper 50’s by Election Day, and we will likely have scattered showers across Gulf coast Tuesday and Wednesday.
In the tropics, tropical storm Shary (pronounced Sha-REE) has developed in the Atlantic, about 220 miles SSW of Bermuda and will quickly pass by close to Bermuda on the east side late tonight.
Another strong tropical wave is showing strong signs of development Southwest of the Windward islands. If this system develops it could become, miraculously, the 19th named storm of the 2010 hurricane season!
