Cooler, drier air for the weekend as a cold front moves in and Hurricane Sally makes landfall in Alabama.

WWLTV’s Meteorologist Dave Nussbaum says, “Hurricane Sally significantly intensified last night into a Category 2 hurricane with winds of 105 mph. It is making landfall near Gulf Shores, AL this morning as a Category 2 hurricane with winds possibly up to 110 mph. Ironically, today is the 16th Anniversary of Hurricane Ivan making landfall on Gulf Shores, AL as a Category 3 hurricane with 120 mph winds.”
