Heat Advisory Returns

Another hot and humid day, as we continue to see an upper-level ridge to the west of the state, and with Alabama on the eastern periphery of this ridge, we are seeing our upper-level flow out of the north. This allows clusters of storms to move out of the Midwest into the Southeast, and that is what we saw on…

Rinse and Repeat Forecast

Hot and humid weather continues across the state, and we just don’t see much change in the overall weather pattern this time of year as we stay in the doldrums of summer. For today, the sky across Central Alabama will be partly to mostly clear with the typical cumulus clouds overhead that form during a summertime day. By this afternoon,…

New Month, Same Forecast

HELLO AUGUST: With a surface boundary stalled out across southern portions of the state, we will keep our chances of showers and thunderstorms around 50%.

Higher Rain Chances for the Weekend

FINALLY FRIDAY We are seeing a weakness in the upper ridge across the Deep South which is allowing many of us in Alabama to have better rain chances today and for the near forecast as well. For the last day of the work week, expect the sky to be partly cloudy across South/Central Alabama, with scattered showers and storms from…

Standard Late July Weather

A CASE OF THE MUGGIES: A very moisture-rich air mass remains in place across the state. Dew points are staying in the 70s and that is making it downright uncomfortable out there. Temperature will once again be well into the 90s this afternoon, and overall it is just going to be another hot and humid day. We will see seeing…

New Work Week, Same Old Forecast

For the start of the new work week, it will be another typical late July day here in Alabama. We are forecasting a partly to mostly sunny sky across the area with the risk of scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Afternoon highs will be in the mid to upper 90s, and this should be the hottest day of the work…

Hot Weekend Weather

A heat advisory is in effect for today and Saturday. Heat indexes for both days will be at or above 105° during the afternoon hours. Look for high temperatures in the mid to upper 90s this afternoon. We could see some scattered strong storms mainly during the afternoon and evening hours and these storms will produce a lot of lightning,…

It is also humid out there and with dew points in the 70s, those heat index values are over 100° in many locations. The only…
