Hot and Getting Hotter

HOTTEST WEATHER YET?: The ridge to the west expands eastwards today and we are going to see lower rain chances and hotter temperatures. Expect upper 90s today, and highs close to 100 degrees Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Heat advisories will likely be needed, as the heat index “feels-like” temperatures are to likely exceed 105°. The only heat relief will come…

Dangerous Heat Ahead

FOR TUESDAY: You can expect hot and humid weather as highs climb into the mid to upper 90s. Once again, the only heat relief will come from those widely spaced afternoon showers and storms. Heat index values this afternoon will range from 100-105°. GETTING HOTTER: It is all about the upper-level ridge strengthening to our west and the warm air…

Heat Here to Stay

BACK TO WORK: For today, we are forecasting more sun than clouds, with only isolated storms. It will be hot and humid, as highs should be in the mid 90s. The main weather headline across the country for the upcoming week will be the very hot temperatures thanks to the strengthening upper-level ridge to our west. Alabama remains on the…

Higher Rain Chances

Today and tomorrow should be the days with the highest coverage of showers and thunderstorms across Alabama. Of course, this is summer, so it won’t rain everywhere, but any one spot stands a 50% chance of getting wet a time or two. Due to the clouds and showers, we will see our temperatures kept down some, with lower 90s expected…

Hot Thursday, Better Rain Chances to End the Week

MORE OF THE SAME: It must be summertime in Alabama. More sun than clouds today, but like clockwork, we are going to see scattered showers and storms develop and last mainly during the afternoon and evening hours. We should see highs easily climb into the lower and mid 90s this afternoon, before the storms get going. Storms today, as we…

Typical July Weather Pattern

STEAMY SUMMER DAY: Hot and humid weather for us again today. The first half of the day will have seen plenty of sunshine across the state and that will allow temperatures to climb their way into lower and mid 90s. Those temperatures will allow instability to build and early this afternoon we will begin to see our daily dose of…

Standard Summer Alabama Weather

FOR TUESDAY: Not much change in the forecast, a mix of sun and clouds, with scattered showers and thunderstorms developing in the heat of the day. Once again, a few storms could be strong and dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning can be expected as with any typical summertime thunderstorm. Highs will once again be in the lower to mid 90s. WEDNESDAY-FRIDAY: Little…

Hot, Humid, with Daily Rumbles of Thunder

A stormy Sunday across much of South/Central Alabama. Many areas across the area received much needed rainfall, and some received less than needed. WHAT TO EXPECT FOR MONDAY: Unsettled weather for another day as a weakness in the upper air pattern is continuing to hover near the area. With a more sun than clouds and thunderstorms expected, temperatures will be…

Better Rain Chances for the Weekend

WEEKEND WEATHER: The ridge weakens, opening the door for the return of scattered showers and thunderstorms. Best chance of a passing shower or storm will come during the afternoon and evening hours, but we can’t rule out a late night or morning shower. Highest coverage will come Sunday, but even then it won’t rain everywhere due to the scattered nature…

Very Hot Days Ahead

LOWER RAIN CHANCES, HOTTER TEMPERATURES: The upper trough that has helped produce better rain chances the last few days across the state has shifted east and the upper ridge is strengthening across Alabama today. That means showers and storms will be fewer in number, and heat levels are headed higher. With a partly to mostly sunny sky, we expect highs…
