Hazy, Hot, Humid, Daily Storms

GRADUAL INCREASE IN SHOWERS/STORMS: Over the next few days, the air aloft over Alabama will be a bit colder, making the air more unstable. Accordingly, we expect a general increase in the number of scattered showers and storms each day through Sunday, with heat levels slowly dropping. The high today will be in the 92-95 degree range and close to…

Blistering Summer Heat

The ridge remains firmly in control to end the work week. Afternoon showers and storms will be few and far between, if any at all. Our afternoon temperatures are going to remain the main weather topic as heat levels will rise, and we are going to see the hottest temperatures of 2017 so far as we are forecasting upper 90s…

Cranking Up the Heat

An upper-level ridge strengthens the rest of the work week and the coverage of afternoon showers and storms will be few and far between, if any at all, generally less than 10%. Temperatures will respond as well and we are forecasting mid to upper 90s through at least Friday. Additionally, we will be keeping an eye on those heat index…

Rain Chances Decrease, Temperatures Increase

RAIN CHANCES DECREASE, TEMPERATURES INCREASE: The upper trough over the East will be shifting east the next 24 hours, and an upper ridge will build in; that means our weather will trend hotter and drier the rest of the week. Our coverage of afternoon showers and storms will decrease today and will be even more isolated Wednesday through Friday as…

Storms to Start Week, Heat to End Week

NEW WORK WEEK: Anytime you have a quasi-stationary front near you, it will act as a highway for upper level features to ride along it. We are going to see this with our current situation as several impulses move across the state the next 48 hours along the front. This will mean for Monday we are going to keep higher…

Better Rain Chances Through the Weekend

NEW DAY, SAME FORECAST: Little change in the forecast from day to day this time of year. The mornings tend to be dry, but late morning and into the afternoon, showers and storms bubble up over the Alabama landscape. These are completely random in their placement and movement. They produce tremendous amounts of lightning, gusty winds, and brief, intense downpours…

Hot and Humid, Daily Afternoon Storms

Expect standard summer weather for Alabama and we are forecasting hot, humid days with a mix of sun and clouds. During the afternoons, expect scattered showers and thunderstorms, with the greatest coverage roughly from 2PM-9PM, and then quickly winding down after…

That means typical summer weather for Alabama and we are expecting hot, humid days with a mix of sun and clouds. Also, you can expect scattered, mainly afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms, which will be greatest in coverage roughly from 2PM-9PM, and then…

Noon Update: Hot Afternoon with Random Storms

It is that old summer-time routine as showers and storms are expected each and every day. Expect the days to feature more sun than clouds, with hot and humid conditions. Each afternoon should see highs in the lower to mid 90s, and also each afternoon we are going to see showers and storms pop-up randomly across the Alabama landscape. No…

Noon Update: The Heat is On

BACK TO WORK: Today will be a mainly dry day with the chance for rain and storms throughout southern portions of the state. For South/Central Alabama, it will not be quite as humid as it can be, but it will still be hot as afternoon highs will make their way into the lower and mid 90s today. TROPICAL UPDATE: The…
