Gorgeous day across much of the Deep South. Clear skies noted across Alabama, northwest Florida, Georgia, and Mississippi.

LAST DAY OF HURRICANE SEASON; SUNSHINE ALL DAY… Full sunshine is expected today and tomorrow across south Alabama and northwest Florida on this last day of the 2021 Atlantic Hurricane Season. Today is the conclusion of the annual 6 month season that started on June 1. The Atlantic Basin had 21 named storms this year, well above our long-term average of 12 named storms. Locally, our area was impacted by Tropical Storm Claudette and by the outer bands of Hurricane Ida (more details below). Over the next few days, no hurricanes (thankfully!) and no active weather. Sunshine will prevail with slightly warmer temperatures. A few Tuesday morning forecast notes are below.
MORE SUNSHINE TOMORROW & THURSDAY… Mostly sunny skies are set to happen tomorrow (Wednesday) and again on Thursday. High temperatures will rise into the 70s each day with morning lows being a bit warmer than the last few days. Most locales will have overnight lows in the mid-50s by Thursday morning.
FEW SHOWERS POSSIBLE THIS WEEKEND… Our next chance of rain happens this weekend, particularly on Sunday, when a few showers will become possible. Showers will likely be scattered in nature.
LAST DAY OF HURRICANE SEASON… Today marks the last day of the 2021 Atlantic Hurricane Season. Our local area experienced effects from Tropical Storm Claudette and Hurricane Ida this year. Claudette spawned an EF2-rated tornado that was on the ground for approximately 22 miles, extending from near Travis Road near East Brewton to near Interstate 65 in Conecuh County. Damage was extensive in parts of East Brewton and Brewton. Hurricane Ida slammed Louisiana, causing massive flooding and extensive wind damage. A few tornado warnings happened locally due to Ida. Most of the 21 named storms this year happened out at sea in the Atlantic Ocean. The first storm was Ana and the most recent storm was Wanda.
LAST REGULARLY-SCHEDULED TROPICAL UPDATE… Today will serve, with the conclusion of hurricane season, as the final mention of the tropics until May of 2022. The North Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, and Gulf of Mexico are quiet with no tropical storms expected to form anytime soon. We will resume regular mentions about the tropics starting in mid-May when activity generally begins ramping up again.
Full sunshine noted across the region this evening. Temperatures are peaking in the low-60s. I expect temps to rapidly fall into the 40s by 6PM in many spots. Cold night ahead. Lows near freezing by Tuesday A.M.

SUNNY & CHILLY TODAY; WARMER TEMPS LATER THIS WEEK… Despite full sunshine expected across the region today, high temperatures will only be in the low-60s. Some communities in west Alabama may only have a high temperature in the upper-50s. Sunny skies are ahead over the next few days as a benign, quiet weather pattern continues.
MORE SUNSHINE THROUGH THURSDAY; INCREASING TEMPS… Sunny skies in the daytime and clear skies at night are expected through Thursday. Highs will be in the low-60s today ahead of highs approaching 70 tomorrow. Mid-70s will be possible by Wednesday afternoon with plenty of sunshine expected.
A FEW SHOWERS BECOME POSSIBLE THIS WEEKEND… Our next chance of rain will happen during the upcoming weekend, although confidence in the idea of rain is fairly low for now. Highs this weekend will likely be near 70 with morning lows in the 50s. I will continue to monitor the data this week and give you our latest thoughts on the weekend rain potential in the RedZone Weather app.
HURRICANE SEASON ENDS TOMORROW… The tropics remain quiet with no tropical storms expected to form in the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, or the Atlantic Ocean. I am thrilled to say the 2021 Atlantic Hurricane Season ends tomorrow.

A dry chilly night is in store for the region. Skies will begin clearing overnight tonight with lows dropping into the mid 30s for areas north of the Highway 84 corridor and low 40s south, except along the immediate coast where mid 40s are expected. #mobwx pic.twitter.com/SvH3KrNAh5
