hotweatherahead.jpg

Good Saturday evening! A sunny and hot summer day was the story for most of Alabama. Temperatures will slowly fall into the lower 70s tonight with conditions staying clear. Not much relief is expected tomorrow, highs will reach again into the mid 90s.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible across the state. As with all storms this time of year, it will be possible for a few of these to become severe. The main threat will be damaging winds up to 60mph. All will dissipate overnight tomorrow with lows again staying mild in the lower 70s.

A high pressure will be pushing into the southeast this coming up week. This will limit our rain chances and allow for temperatures to crank up. Highs will near a hundred by this Wednesday through Saturday making for higher heat indices into 110s or higher. Drink plenty of water, wear light clothing and don’t forget to check up on your family/friends! Stay safe everyone.

Good Thursday afternoon! Our local weather includes a hot and mostly rain-free day. Temperatures reached the lower 90s in most spots, with a heat index nearing 102. A few storms on radar this afternoon will diminish tonight, with a low in the middle 70s.

Friday through the weekend will feature hot, hazy and humid conditions. We’ll top out in the lower to middle 90s during the afternoon, but the heat index will be nearing 105 to 107… This is in the dangerous category, so use caution if working outdoors.

Next week will include even lower rain chances and hotter air temperatures. We’ll reach the middle to upper 90s during the afternoon each day next week.

In the Tropics, Tropical Storm Fay has formed. This is located near the outer banks of North Carolina and will be moving towards the mid Atlantic coastline on Friday and Friday night.

Tuesday and Wednesday will include a good chance of scattered showers and storms. Keep in mind, this is not going to be an all day rain event, but it would be a good idea to keep an umbrella handy.

The risk of scattered showers and storms will be possible during the afternoon and evening hours each day this week, with chances decreasing a little bit by late week. Temperatures will top out in the upper 80s to near 90 today and Wednesday, followed by low 90s Thursday through the weekend.

updatedforecast.jpg

Good Sunday Evening! We’ll finish this 4th of July weekend with a few scattered showers/thunderstorms moving across the state. Temperatures tonight will gradually fall into the lower 70s; other than a passing shower or two conditions will stay mostly dry, allowing the chance to shoot off any of those leftover fireworks you may have!

Rain chances increase tomorrow with most of the activity expected during the later afternoon and evening time hours. A few thunderstorms will also be possible during the evening. This pattern lasts through Thursday. Highs this week will stay into the mid to upper 80s with nineties returning by Thursday. Weekly rainfall totals will stay between 1-2”. Localized flooding is possible, especially in locations that see two or more thunderstorms throughout the week!

A small tropical disturbance will bring showers and thunderstorms into Gulf Shores over the next few days. This system has a low chance for any formation and will move off to the northeast by Tuesday! The strongest tropical system we are tracking now is in the Atlantic. Tropical depression five, northeast of Bermuda, will remain a small fish storm having no impact on land.
