Sunday Evening Forecast Discussion – 10 p.m.

A surface trough situated across West Alabama will continue to move across the southern parts of our area. As the strong ridge currently situated over the Central US begins to encompass West Alabama on Tuesday, rain chances will diminish and the heat will build in. Therefore. the main theme for this week will be the temperatures. High temperatures will approach the triple digits everyday this week. Dew points will be in the mid to upper 70s, heat index values will remain around 105 and some locations will rise above that. Models and dew points vary greatly so heat index values may go up and down.

The next chance for rain appears to be Friday. Models continue to indicate that a short wave trough will make its way down into our area along the eastern edge of the ridge onn Friday. This along with ample moisture for the Gulf will likely bring rain and a little relief to the heat Friday and into Saturday.
