Good Wednesday afternoon! Our local weather remains hot across the state today, but a few scattered downpours are cooling some spots off. The risk of a passing afternoon or evening storm will diminish after sunset. Expect temperatures to drop into the 70s overnight.

Thursday will feature a partly cloudy sky, with a few scattered showers and storms being possible, especially during the afternoon. The risk of rain is at 40%. Rain chances will drop to 20% on Friday, with isolated afternoon and evening storms being possible. Highs will top out in the lower 90s, and heat index values will approach 100 degrees.

Next week, we’ll deal with a few scattered showers and storms, otherwise, expect hot weather. Highs will remain in the low 90s, with lows in the lower 70s.

We’re watching 2 tropical waves in the Atlantic. Neither of those appear to threaten the US mainland. We’ll watch those features close…

Good Tuesday afternoon! Our local weather started off mild and muggy this morning, with another hot afternoon. Dewpoints are higher today, giving a heat index factor. A few scattered storms are ongoing as of 4pm, but the storms on radar will fade away shortly after sunset, as temperatures drop into the 70s.

The risk of rain on Wednesday will be much like today. Expect a 30% risk of a passing shower or storm. It will not rain everywhere, but a few tropical downpours can’t be ruled out. Highs will reach the lower 90s by mid afternoon, with a heat index nearing 100.

Thursday and Friday will feature a mostly sunny sky, with isolated afternoon and evening storms being possible. The risk of rain those days stands at 20% to 30%. Highs will top out in the lower 90s, and heat index values will approach 100 degrees.

Few Scattered Storms Ahead… Hot Days… Monday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_640 (9).jpg

Good Monday afternoon! Our local weather has turned out rather hot this afternoon, with most areas well into the lower to middle 90s. Moisture levels continue to increase, and we’ll notice a better chance of scattered showers and storms this week in response to that. Expect temperatures to slowly drop into the 70s overnight, under a mostly clear sky.

A few scattered storms are possible on Tuesday, but I expect most of our area to remain dry. As a week surface front approaches from the northwest, the risk of scattered storms will increase some on Wednesday to 40%.

Thursday and Friday will feature a mostly sunny sky, with isolated afternoon and evening storms being possible. The risk of rain those days stands at 30%. Highs will top out in the lower 90s, and heat index values will approach 100 degrees.

Slight Increase in Rain This Week…Sunday Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_640 (8).jpgGood Sunday evening! Not much has changed in the forecast today, as we have had more hot and muggy conditions. Highs topped out in the low to mid 90s today across many areas in Central Alabama and the majority of the state remained dry. Expect lows tonight to be back in the upper 60s and skies to be mostly clear.

This trend will continue on Monday, so plan on mostly sunny skies with a stray shower or two, occurring mainly during the afternoon hours. Highs will reach the low to mid 90s again and humidity levels will stay rather high.

On Tuesday and throughout the rest of the week, a summertime pattern will dominate once again, so expect a higher chance for scattered showers and storms to develop each day across the coverage area. Rain chances remain in the 30-40% range, and they will mainly occur during the afternoon and evening hours. Again, this will not be a complete wash-out or an all-day event, but you might need to keep your umbrella close by. Highs will be in the lower 90s and lows will be in the lower 70s.

Hot and Humid Weather Ahead…Saturday Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_640 (7).jpgGood Saturday evening! The past several days have been filled with rather mild July temperatures and relatively low humidity levels, but unfortunately hot and steamy weather has returned. Temperatures today reached the low 90s in many areas across Central Alabama and conditions remained dry for the most part. The good news is that these rain-free conditions will continue into tomorrow as well. Expect lows tonight in the upper 60s.

As mentioned earlier, Sunday will be another beautiful day with mostly sunny skies. Temperatures will be reaching the low to mid 90s in several portions across the state and dew points will be in the lower 70s. This will make the feels like temperatures not as comfortable, but heat indices will not reach critical levels.

On Monday, expect hot and mainly dry weather again as highs climb back into the low and mid 90s. A stray shower or two could occur, but these chances are quite limited and nearly every location will be staying dry.

A few more scattered showers and storms are expected on Tuesday and Wednesday as an upper-level disturbance moves through the state, so plan on keeping your umbrella handy. Rain chances are in the 30-40% range and highs should remain in the lower 90s.

Throughout the rest of next week and into the first of August, expect more hot and humid conditions. These days will generally feature partly sunny to mostly sunny skies with randomly scattered showers and storms occurring mainly during the afternoon and evening hours.
