COOLER AIR ARRIVES NEXT WEEK… After record-setting heat earlier today and more on the way for Friday afternoon, we’re looking ahead to cooler temperatures set to arrive in the middle part of the upcoming week. A cold front will move by on Tuesday, bringing a chance of showers and storms into south Alabama and northwest Florida. Wednesday morning and Thursday morning of next week will likely be the coolest mornings. Overnight lows on Thursday are depicted in the attached map. Temperatures won’t ever get close to the freezing mark and no frost is expected at this time. The cool down will last 3-4 days, at least.
RECORD HIGH TEMPERATURES TODAY… 84° was today’s record high temperature at Pensacola, breaking the old record of 83° set in 2012. Mobile tied the record high set in 1935 of 86° today. Temperatures on Friday will again be in record-setting territory with most spots expected to peak in the mid- to upper-80s across our region by 2PM.
DON’T FORGET: CARDS FOR THE ELDERLY… Please don’t forget to take advantage of our new RedZone Weather Cards for the Elderly program. We want to be able to safely send as many encouraging cards as possible to our local senior adults in nursing homes. Be sure to visit the link below for all the information. This is an opportunity for students and adults across our region to write encouraging notes to elderly people currently under lockdown in local nursing homes due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation.
