Hot Days For Now… Pattern Change Ahead… Monday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_640_jpg.pngGood Monday afternoon! It’s another hot and dry day across Alabama, with many communities reaching the upper 90s this afternoon. Expect a clear sky tonight, with a low in the lower 70s.

There will be no change in the weather between now and Thursday. Upper level ridging will keep us hot and rain free through Thursday. Highs will reach the upper 90s during the afternoon hours, with lows in the lower 70s.

The ridge will begin to break down over the weekend, allowing for a weak surface front to move in from the north. I expect highs in the upper 80s over the weekend, with lows in the 60s.

Monday of next week, models are in good agreement of a stronger cold front pushing southward and into Alabama. There is evidence this front may pick up some Gulf moisture to produce a good coverage of showers and storms across the area. As we get closer, we’ll be able to fine-tune the forecast. Atleast there is hope for some rain. Temperatures could turn much cooler in response to the 2nd front on Monday and Tuesday.

Another Hot Week Ahead… Sunday PM Forecast Update… @wvua23 #alwx

Sevenday_640 (4)

Good Sunday afternoon! Not much change over the next week with well above average highs continuing to be the rule of thumb. Highs will push record territory as we enter October with middle and upper 90s. Unfortunately, not much going on for us in the rain department over the next 7 days either.

The lack of rain has lead to drought conditions across much of Alabama and burn bans are in effect for many locations.

There is some hope of a pattern change moving in towards the end of the 7 day period sometime around next weekend. This could usher in some well deserved cooler temps and perhaps better chances to see some rain. However, this is long range and subject to change. Lets hope the trends continue and we see some actual Fall weather!

The Never Ending Summer Continues… Saturday PM Forecast Update… @wvua23 #alwx

7 Day -10PM SHOW.png

Good Saturday afternoon! Today is going to be another hot one! Temperatures are expected to be in the upper 90s this afternoon under mostly clear skies. So if you are going to the Alabama football game at 2:30 PM, be sure and drink plenty of water and use plenty of sunscreen if you are heading to Bryant-Denny!

As for the rest of this week, expect the summer like pattern to stick around. Temperatures in the mid and upper 90s under mostly clear skies. We will likely be flirting with record highs across west Alabama to start October!

Beyond the 7-Day, there is at least some hope for relief around October 7-10th. But just how much cooler, if any, remains to be seen. Lets keep our fingers crossed for a true “Pumpkin Spice” cold front soon!

Fall is here…summer didn’t get the memo…Friday PM Forecast Update… @wvua23 #alwx

Good Friday afternoon! As expected, today has been another very hot day across Alabama, with most areas reaching the middle to upper 90s under mostly sunny skies.

The heat sticks around for this weekend with the upper 90s likely and no chance of any rainfall.

Alabama kicks off at 2:30 PM on Saturday against Ole Miss, expect temperatures to be near 96 degrees for kick off, with the heat index near 100. Be sure if you are heading to Bryant-Denny that you drink plenty of water and use sunscreen!

We will remain in the middle to upper 90s for the next week, with no sign of any true relief over the next 7 days.

Long range, it does appear there is a chance of cooler temperatures in the October 7-10 time range as the ridge breaks down. Lets hope so!

Very Hot Days Continue… Thursday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

ASDF

Good Thursday afternoon! As expected, today has been another very hot day across Alabama, with most areas reaching the middle to upper 90s. Rain is hard to find on radar this afternoon, due to the intense, suppressing upper level ridge.

Ridging will build stronger in the coming days, which means temperatures will only get hotter, with rain chances pretty much less than 3% for the next 7 days. Highs will reach the middle to upper 90s on Friday, with upper 90s likely for the weekend.

Bama takes on Ole Miss in Tuscaloosa on Saturday. Kickoff is at 2:30pm, and we can expect a temperature near 98 at kickoff time…

We’ll remain in the middle to upper 90s next week, with no sign of colder air over the next 10 days.

In the tropics, we have Tropical Storm Karen we’re watching north of Puerto Rico. It appears Karen will do a loop over the Atlantic to the east of the Bahamas over the next 5 days, but there is little evidence Karen will impact the US. We’ll watch close.

Good Wednesday afternoon! Our local weather remains very hot across Alabama today, with many areas reaching well into the 90s. Skies remain mostly sunny, with only a couple of tiny showers on radar as of 4pm. Expect temperatures to drop into the lower 70s tonight, under a clear sky.

Ridging will build stronger in the coming days, which means temperatures will only get hotter, with rain chances pretty much less than 3% for the next 7 days. Highs will reach the middle to upper 90s on Thursday and Friday, with upper 90s likely for the weekend.

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

asdfwe.pngGood Monday afternoon! Our local weather was once again hot today, despite this being the first day of fall. Expect temperatures to drop into the low 70s tonight, under a mostly cloudy sky. A stray shower or two will be possible overnight and into the day on Tuesday.

I don’t expect a widespread rain on Tuesday or Wednesday, but I can’t rule out a passing rain shower. The risk is only at 10%, so don’t count on much if anything. Skies will remain partly sunny.

Upper level ridging will rebuild in our area by mid to late week, sending temperatures into the middle 90s, with some spots in the upper 90s. The upcoming weekend looks sunny and dry, with well above average temperatures.
