It was variably cloudy in Cullman today with a High of 82 and a Low of 64. 

We still have some light showers hanging around tonight. There were some flooding issues in East Central Mississippi earlier, around Columbus, but that flash flood warning has now expired. 

They've got some decent thunderstorms going on down around Miami. Much of the nation's weather has turned quiet though.

Today we've had good upper-level wind flow from the Gulf of Mexico and been dealing with an inverted trough that brought us the rain chances. Soon the high pressure system will move in here and put an end to that for a while. Going to be mild and dry for at least a few days. The dry pattern may hold for the better part of the next week. 

Tonight since we've got a little more rain and clouds hanging around than expected, the Low might only get down to about 66. Then tomorrow we clear out, might see a stray shower in the morning, but overall should see mostly sunny skies and a High near 80. 

Then on Sunday, the high pressure riding building over the region, we'll see mostly sunny skies again, High near 85, the Low in the lower 60's, about 63-64.

Basically the same for Monday, Labor Day, except that the High will probably edge into the upper 80's.

By Tuesday the Low may rebound more toward mid-60's but basically the same weather during the day.

By Wednesday the ridge of high pressure should be right over us, so fewer clouds around, and the High should rebound close to 90 degrees. Low staying in mid-60's.

Basically the same for Thursday except the Low might creep back up into the upper 60's. Still some very comfortable evenings compared to a lot of the weather we've had this summer, such low humidity during this forecast period.

There is some hint of rain chances returning Friday, but even if so, it looks more like Friday night. And it really isn't clear between the two global models. So for now will only mention an increase in cloud cover. This pattern really is one that favors little to no rain around here. 

The tropics look active, but at this point there is a lot more bark than bite. 

The only one that is any threat to land is what's left of Tropical Cyclone Idalia, causing tropical storm conditions as it moves the rest of the way through Bermuda. 

The rest of them are expected to dissipate over open waters. Except for that new disturbance coming off the West coast of Africa, that will have to be watched over the next week to see what it does, if it does much of anything. 

The National Weather Service in Birmingham has scheduled SKYWARN classes ahead of the Fall severe weather season, which usually is roughly the duration of the month of November. Although it is variable, usually things calm down again in December and the rest of the Winter months. We need all the reliable spotters we can get, maybe more so in the digital age where people post floods of information, where it's hard to sort out what's legit and what's junk. Most people who watch storms have no idea what they're looking at. You take one of these classes, you'll know what you're seeing, most of the time. Nobody can tell for sure all the time. Weather is complex. 

And I was going to find a good news story to post about the aftermath of Hurricane Idalia, where the damage was mainly in Florida, but they had some rough weather in Georgia and the Carolinas too. Unfortunately that appears to have already turned political, Biden vs. DeSantis, and I have no interest after skimming the headlines. I guess all I have to say is that it was a mighty rough storm, unprecedented for that part of Florida. There were a few deaths from it, but not as many as there could have been. Overall I think things went better than with Hurricane Ian last year. So I'll try to be glad of that, while sympathizing with people who lost property or may still be without electricity down there. I don't know how to help with the relief, because I've seen too many cases of charity organizations apparently pocketing most of the money that is donated, and I don't always have the energy to sort that out. Figuring out the weather part is hard enough. If you donate some money, please make sure it is to some people or an organization you can trust. To actually use it for the right things. A tip of the hat to those who really are helping the people down there who need it. Again, it is hard to know who those people are. But I'm sure the residents of Florida appreciate you treating them right.
