Very Warm Days Ahead… Isolated Storms Possible (Low Chance)… Tuesday Update – 4:45pm #alwx


Good Tuesday afternoon! Our local weather has turned out rather hot today, with most areas reaching the middle to upper 80s across west and central Alabama. Gusty south winds have increased dewpoints today, which has brought back a humid feel to the air. While humidity isn’t overly high, it’s enough to give a slight discomfort to the air today. An isolated storm or two will remain possible for areas north of I-20 this evening and tonight, but I expect most areas to remain dry.

Wednesday through Friday will include quiet weather, with highs in the middle 80s and lows in the lower 60s. Average highs for this time of the year are in the upper 70s to near 80, so we’re certinally above that… I can’t rule out a shower or storm on Wednesday through Friday, but many areas will not get rain.

A weak cold front will stall out just to the north of Alabama over the weekend, but with some uplift nearby and higher moisture levels, a few spotty storms are possible. Depending on how far south the front progresses over the weekend will determine how much rain west and central Alabama will get. At this time, I’ve got a 30% risk of rain on Saturday and Sunday, but keep checking back with our forecast for any changes made. Highs will top out in the lower 80s on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

Football Friday: Most stadiums should be dry for high school football Friday night, with only a 20% risk of an isolated storm or two. Temperatures will fall into the 70s during the local games under a partly cloudy sky.
