COLUMBUS, Ga (WRBL) – As September ends, we’ll end the month the same way we started it, warm. Expect high temperatures to be above average today, with most of the area reaching the mid-80s and just like Wednesday, a few low 90s are possible.
A little more cloud cover today because small disturbances bring showers just to our west, we will miss the opportunity for rain thanks to a northern front. This will push any rain to our southwest and away from the News 3 viewing area, but you will notice more of a mix of sun and cloud today. No more sun and keep warm for Friday and even Saturday as the high pressure continues to push the systems away.
A front will begin to approach the area on Sunday and eventually linger early next week. This will give us the possibility of some parasitic showers on Sunday evening and until the middle of next week. High temperatures will cool down seasonally as well, which means more of us will be in the lower to mid 80s.
Hurricane Sam remains a powerful Category 4 hurricane over the open Atlantic. He poses no threat to dry land and will continue to curve out to sea and miss Bermuda, Sam will eventually weaken early next week.
We now have Tropical Storm Victor a few thousand miles west of the African coast. Victor will strengthen and eventually become a hurricane by this weekend and bend out to sea, posing no threat to the US coastline.
