Hot Again Today; Higher Rain Chances Ahead

| August 15, 2018 @ 5:49 am

HOT AUGUST WEATHER: Birmingham’s official high yesterday was 93 degrees; we are expecting similar heat levels today with most communities climbing into the 91-95 degree range. The sky will be partly to mostly sunny, and it will be rather hazy due to some of the smoke from the wildfires in western Canada and the Northwest U.S. drifting in here in the high altitudes. A few pop-up storms are possible this afternoon, but they should be widely spaced… chance of any one spot getting wet is about one in five.
