It’s another fall preview day for the Gulf Coast; lots of sunshine, low humidity, and cooler-than-average temperatures return. After a record-setting start in the low 60s, this afternoon warms to 88 with a northwest breeze. Mobile’s morning low of 62 tied a record from 1958, while Pensacola’s low of 65 broke the record of 66 from the same year.
We’re back in the mid 60s with starry skies tonight.
High hover near 90 and lows warm to the low 70s this weekend. We’ll add back some humidity, a few clouds,
and a slight chance of Saturday or Sunday showers.
Tropical Storm Erika is moving toward the Lesser Antilles island chain with 50 mph winds. It could strengthen and approach the Atlantic coast of Florida this weekend, but won’t be a threat to our part of the central Gulf Coast.
