Tuesday Forecast: Another day of extreme heat in West Alabama with afternoon highs back in the mid to upper 90′s. The record high for Tuesday is 99 degrees set back in 1955. We should get close to this record today, after breaking the record high yesterday (100 degrees yesterday in Tuscaloosa…the old record was 97 degrees set back in 1997/1954). The high pressure ridge in control of our weather should slide eastward, helping afternoon temps stay in the middle 90′s with an isolated chance of t-showers Wednesday through Friday. This weekend computer models have a frontal boundary approaching West Alabama…and some have the front clearing the area. This would give us a slightly better chance for a few showers…and help keep afternoon highs in the upper 80′s to lower 90′s…much closer to normal for this time of year.
