If you are traveling to the Alabama Beaches this weekend the weather should be fantastic for your Labor Day weekend plans.
If you are staying home in north Alabama and middle Tennessee we have some great weather of our own to brag about. Expect highs in the upper 80s through Sunday with morning lows in the 60s. Perfect weather for football! No rain is expected through the middle of next week. Unfortunately some areas still need rain. The Thursday drought monitor report continues to show much of Jackson County is in extreme drought. Dry weather will continue for much of next week as hotter weather returns. Highs late next week will likely be in the middle 90s with more humidity on the way.
