Summery First Day of Fall

It will be another hot afternoon across the river region. A broad area of surface high pressure will continue to keep us mostly rain free for the next few days, so an afternoon shower to help cool us off will remain unlikely. Temperatures this afternoon will be approaching or reaching the mid 90s. We will cool off into the lower…

Hot & Dry Weather Pattern

Another Wednesday, another day with temperatures in the mid 90s. Expect a high of 95 this afternoon, with relatively low humidity and essentially non-existent rain chances. Tonight will be pleasant, with temperatures falling into the lower 70s to upper 60s under clear skies. Tomorrow and Friday will basically be a repeat of today, with afternoon highs in the low to…

Rain Chances Return

It was another hot day across the river region, but we did see a few isolated showers in the area. Showers will begin to dwindle in coverage after sunset. Temperatures tonight will fall into the lower 70s, a little warmer than the last several nights have been. A cold front will approach from the northwest this evening, and make it…

Drier Air is On The Way

It was another hot day across the river region with temperatures topping out in the low to mid 90s. A few storms popped up in the afternoon heat, and they will linger through the early evening. Showers will generally diminish after sunset, and we will be left with clearing skies overnight. Temperatures will fall into the lower to mid 70s,…

Hot & Dry Pattern Continues

It was another hot day today. Temperatures easily topped out in the mid 90s across the area. It was also another day without a shower in sight across the river region. Tonight, skies will be remaining mostly clear across the area, with temperatures dipping into the lower 70s before sunrise. Tomorrow we will be right back into the mid 90s…

A Hot and Dry Week Ahead

A cold front is advancing through northwest Alabama this evening, and it will try to make its way through the river region overnight tonight. Ahead of the front, we have seen scattered thunderstorms fire up in the daytime heating. As we enter the evening hours, these storms should weaken and diminish. Skies will become mostly clear overnight, with lows dropping…

Cold Front Approaches

Tonight: Showers and Storms should be diminishing as we head through the rest of the evening, although we could see a few additional storms fire this evening, but most will stay dry. Skies will clear some overnight, and should eventually become partly cloudy. Overnight lows will be in the mid-70s this evening. Tomorrow: More scattered storms across the area as…

Back into the Mid 90s

We are fully back into the summertime weather pattern. The southeastern ridge has taken hold over the area, causing rain chances to go down, skies remaining partly cloudy, and temperatures to rise. The gulf low that was over Louisiana for the last several days is finally lifting to the north, with most of the associated moisture transport over Mississippi today….

Summer Pattern Returns

After a week of high temperatures holding in the upper 80s for much of the river region, it looks like we will have a return to the typical summer weather pattern with afternoon highs in the low to mid 90s and isolated afternoon storms. For this evening, rain and thunderstorm coverage across the area has really diminished, and it should…

A Rainy Week Ahead

It looks like we will finally see an end to the summertime pattern that has been upon us for the last several weeks. It looks like afternoon high temperatures will be significantly cooler this week, and rain chances significantly higher. The tropical disturbance over the northern gulf now appears to have no potential of becoming a tropical cyclone. However, it…
