No Relief From The Heat This Week. Sunday forecast update 4pm @wvua23 #alwx

7 Day -10PM SHOW.pngThe weekend is coming to an end. Highs this afternoon reaching into the low 90s here in Tuscaloosa, upper 80s in Birmingham, and mid 90s in Jasper! Everywhere though feels like temperatures made the heat more unbearable feeling like the upper 90s to low 100s.

Tonight showers will start to end and clouds will clear. Lows will drop to the low 70s for the night with a calm wind. Tomorrow will be another hot afternoon as high pressure holds over the area and Gulf moisture is sucked into the state. We will top out in the mid 90s and like today feel like the triple digits. We should be drier tomorrow afternoon and see less scattered showers but there will be a few isolated pop up showers still. This will be very similar to the day on Tuesday.

Highs all week will hold onto the mid 90s with some warmer evenings as well in the mid 70s by the end of the week. No large widespread rain is expected all week but we are in the summer season in the south so expect those annoying late afternoon storms to continue through next weekend.

Times of Sunshine and Showers This Week. Saturday forecast update 9pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day -10PM SHOW.pngWell I hope everyone got to enjoy the sunshine this afternoon while it lasted and got the errand done in the morning. Showers and storms are clearing right now and there are just a few lingering pesky storms. We will start to dry out tonight and clouds will start to clear as well to make for a partly clear night. Lows will drop into the low 70s upper 60s.

Tomorrow will be a little less stormy than the past two days with more popcorn type of showers and storms that do not last long. We have a very moist air mass over us which is helping fuel these storms we’ve been seeing and will continue to see for the next 7 days. With all this moisture and a good dose of sunshine, heat index values are likely to reach the triple digits this week. Be sure to stay hydrated and take indoor breaks if you plan to be out for a long time.

Highs will start to trend up into the mid 90s as high pressure sets into the southeast tomorrow. Warm muggy days will continue as a result.

Warm Days, Few Storms This Week. Friday forecast update 2pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - 5PM SHOW.pngTGIF! Warm afternoon today as highs are in the upper 80s right now in Tuscaloosa but it feels like the mid 90s here in town! Most of Central Alabama will hit the low 90s by around 4pm today.

Afternoon showers and thunderstorms are beginning to pop up across the state. These are isolated and should not last long if you see one. Back to our west in west Mississippi they are seeing more widespread showers and storms that are moving southeast. We won’t be impacted by these storms here in central Alabama.

Tonight a few showers are possible with partly cloudy skies, mainly before 11pm. Most will stay dry though. Temperatures will drop back into the low 70s. Tomorrow will be another warm afternoon with highs in the low 90s and feels like temperatures in the upper 90s to 100s. As typical in the south during the summer an afternoon shower and thunderstorm is possible but fortunately this entire week we are looking at rain chances in the 20-30% range which means pretty isolated showers for you.

By Sunday a high will move into the southeast making us a littler drier for the week but also giving us some warmer afternoons with highs in the mid 90s.

4th of July: Right now 6 days away the 4th looks to be a pretty nice day with a few afternoon showers that should clear by fireworks time. However, we are still far enough away that rain timing is variable and can change. We will keep you up to date with all the latest forecast update for the holiday here on WVUA 23!

Hot Days, With a Few Storms Possible… Thursday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Good Thursday afternoon! A cluster of showers and storms has drifted southeast across Alabama this afternoon, really dropping some heavy rain in spots, while other spots remained dry. At 4pm, the storms were mainly south of Tuscaloosa, with some patchy sprinkles remaining near and north of the Tuscaloosa area. The showers and storms will quickly fade after sunset, with a mild and muggy feel to the air overnight. Some patchy fog can’t be ruled out overnight.

Friday through the weekend will feature a partly cloudy sky, with hot daytime temperatures. We’ll reach the lower 90s during the afternoon, with the risk of a few isolated storms. Keep in mind, storms will be very random and hit or miss. It will not rain everywhere; in-fact, the chance of any one spot getting rained on stands at 30%.

Monday through Wednesday will feature nearly identical weather. One minor change will be the high. Highs will approach the middle 90s early next week, but we’ll continue with the chance of a few isolated afternoon storms.

The tropics remain quiet…

Good Wednesday afternoon! Our local weather started off very mild and muggy this morning, with mainly rain-free conditions this afternoon. A few storms developed this afternoon east of Birmingham, and those are drifting southwest. Expect the chance of isolated storms this evening.

Thursday and Friday will feature hot temperatures, with a chance of scattered storms. The best chance of a storm is during the afternoon hours, but most stay dry. Highs will reach the lower 90s, with lows in the low 70s.

We’ll continue with a chance of a few scattered storms through the weekend, but again, this is not a widespread rain event. A few storms that develop could produce briefly heavy rain.
