Hot & Humid Days… Scattered Storms… Tuesday Forecast Update – 4:30pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Tuesday afternoon! Summer weather has returned to Alabama with the dreaded heat and humidity. Temperatures have topped out in the low 90s across most of the area with a heat index over 100. A few scattered storms have developed across central Alabama, and the storms are helping to cool a few spots off. Given the random nature of scattered afternoon storms, it’s very hot where it isn’t raining. The risk of scattered storms will diminish this evening.

With a very deep layer of tropical moisture over the area, expect the risk of a few scattered afternoon and evening storms each day this week. It will not rain everywhere, but some of you will get a passing downpour. Rain chances will remain at 30% on Wednesday and Thursday, bumping up to 40% on Friday.

A weak surface front will approach central Alabama on Saturday and Sunday. I expect a good chance of scattered storms on Saturday and Sunday, but it will not rain all day. Highs will reach the low 90, with a high level of humidity. Lows at night will remain in the 70s across the area.
