Hot, Humid, Scattered Storms

| June 25, 2018 @ 5:52 am

HOT SUMMER DAYS: It is that time of the year when you can say “hot and humid with scattered, mostly afternoon and evening thunderstorms” and get the foreacst right just about every time. An upper ridge and abundant low level moisture will be in place across the Deep South this week providing the typical summertime weather for Alabama. We note the NWS in Birmingham has issued a “heat advisory” for some Central Alabama counties today…

Understand it will be hot in all Alabama counties… not sure anyone will notice the difference between a county like St. Clair, that is in the heat index, and adjacent Calhoun County, which is not included.

Temperatures will rise into the middle 90s this afternoon. Heat indices could reach 105 degrees or above for a few hours in some places with dewpoints in the 70s.

Scattered storms will fire up during the heat of the day; they will be totally random, and scattered.

REST OF THE WEEK: Not much change; hot, humid days with a mix of sun and clouds and the risk of scattered storms, mostly during the afternoon and evening hours. But, you always have the chance of a late night/early morning rogue storm. We had one this morning in the Birmingham metro around 3-4 a.m. Afternoon highs will be in the 90-95 degree range.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: Still hot, still humid. Partly sunny days, with random, scattered, mostly afternoon and evening thunderstorms. Highs mostly in the low 90s.

And, we will simply roll with a persistence forecast next week as we approach the Fourth of July holiday. It’s summer in Alabama.

TROPICS: All is very quiet across the Atlantic basin; tropical storm formation is not expected this week.
