Hurricane Matthew, now an extremely dangerous category five storm, has intensified by 80 mph over past 24 hours... only 2 Atlantic tropical cyclones on record had stronger 24 hour intensification rates (Wilma & Felix). It is also the lowest latitude category 5 hurricane in the Atlantic on record at 13.3°N (prior record Felix (2007) at 13.7°N. (via @philklotzbach).

The hurricane is expected to go over the eastern part of Jamaica Monday, with potential for catastrophic damage.

Drought conditions will worsen across Alabama as we see no chance of rain for at least the next seven days. Cool again tonight; a slow warming trend over the weekend. Forecast details, football weather, and the latest on Hurricane Matthew are on the ABC 33/40 Weather Blog: http://www.alabamawx.com

Another spectacular early autumn day is ahead for Alabama, with a sunny sky and a high in the mid 70s. Look for a gradual warmup over the weekend and into next week; unfortunately no chance of rain, and drought conditions will worsen.

Matthew is now a major, category three hurricane. It turns northward this weekend. Remains to be seen if there will be direct impact on the U.S. East Coast.

Projected 10 day rain totals from the GFS model... basically nothing for Alabama, meaning drought conditions worsen.
