Discussion

Hurricane Sally continues to dump copious amounts of rain on the northern Gulf coastal region as it grinds its way northward now as a category 2 storm. Some spots in the region are likely to receive close to two feet of rain by the time it moves well inland. The remnants of Hurricane Sally will push towards the Carolinas over the next couple of days and then off the coast by the early part of the weekend. Meanwhile, a strong cold front approaches the region on Thursday from the northwest. The passage of the cold front on Thursday night will usher in the coolest air of the season so far with afternoon highs likely to be confined to the 60’s on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. One final note, the sun was a brilliant orange/red early this morning as a result of an upper-level layer of smoke from all of the wildfires out in the western US.
