According to J.P. Dice at WBRC, “At the earliest, we will not see rain until late October and with the dry and windy conditions fire warnings are in effect across the state.” From WBRC
“Looking further into voodoo country, another sharp trough brings some chance of rain to the Southeast US around the 21st/22nd of October. This trough is fairly sharp so another cool down is likely to occur with this one.”
The National Weather Service in Birmingham has issued a second fire warning. The warning has expanded to 24 counties including Jefferson, St. Clair and Blount counties.
Outdoor burning is not recommended and could be potentially be very dangerous due the dry air and breezy conditions. Hold off on your family and friends marshmallow roasting!
