The Summer Solstice occurred at 4:13 AM CDT, officially bringing the start to summer, but it’s been feeling like summer for weeks in Alabama.
The upper-level ridge builds back in across the Deep South this week meaning very hot temperatures and low rain chances all week.

Today will be a day when we are seeing plenty of sunshine, and along with the upper-ridge in place across the Deep South, temperatures will surge into the upper 90s and low 100s.
New day, same forecast as Alabama swelters under the upper ridge across the Deep South.
