Otherwise, both days will feature a mix of sun and clouds. The high Wednesday will be in the low 80s, followed by mid 80s Thursday. Humidity levels will rise.

FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND: Friday and Saturday will be mostly sunny and very warm, with highs in the 87-90 degree range. Then, on Sunday, the sky will be partly sunny with a high in the mid 80s. A few showers are possible over the northern half of the state late Sunday afternoon and Sunday night, but rain amounts should be light, and no severe storms are expected.

NEXT WEEK: We will maintain the chance of scattered showers Monday over North Alabama, but the rest of the week looks generally dry as a strong upper ridge builds across the southern U.S. Afternoon highs will be close to 90 degrees as the summer pattern sets in… See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

ON THIS DATE IN 1923: An early morning violent estimated F5 tornado cut a 45-mile path of destruction through Howard and Mitchell counties in Texas. 23 people lost their lives and 250 sustained injuries. The path width of the tornado reached 1.5 miles at one point, and entire farms were “wiped off the face of the earth.” The First Baptist Church in Colorado City, Texas became an emergency hospital for tornado victims.
