Thursday Afternoon Weather Discussion – 3:41 p.m.

Less humid weather has been felt across western Alabama today, with lower dewpoints. Temperatures have been rather hot, with highs in the lower to middle 90s, but heat index values stayed below 100 degrees. Other than a few showers across our central counties, most of the rain has stayed away from west Alabama.

Temperatures will drop into the lower 70s tonight, with clear skies, but we will rebound rather quickly after sunrise tomorrow morning; expect daytime highs in the middle 90s again. Humidity will move back into our area by this time tomorrow, and you can expect a few more afternoon showers and thunderstorms. As moisture increases, our rain chances go up on Sunday, with a 30% chance of storms. Still, we don’t expect a washout, but that will change on Monday. We’ll reach a high of 91 on Monday, with a good chance of showers and thunderstorms. A strong cold front for this time of the year will push into the state. Some of the storms could be rather strong. Drier air moves in on Tuesday, with low humidity and pleasant overnight lows. Temperatures at night will approach the upper 60s, while highs reach the lower 90s.

Be sure to join us today at 4, 5, 6 and 10 for the latest on your news, weather and sports. I’ll be filling in for Wes today.
