Midday Weather Check: Hot Today… Hotter Tomorrow

| May 21, 2019 @ 12:35 pm

We have mostly clear skies out there as we have reached 12:30 pm on this beautiful but hot Tuesday. Temperatures are already in the mid-80s to the lower 90s across the area. Birmingham was at 86 degrees, while Montgomery and Tuscaloosa lead the way at 91 degrees.

Heat is the word for this week as temperatures will be on a warming trend. We’re lucky for today as these will be the coolest temperatures we’ll see for at least the next seven days. Highs are expected to make it up into the upper 80s to the lower 90s across much of Central Alabama from northwest to southeast, but a few locations may cross over into the mid-90s in the southern parts. Skies will be mostly sunny but we will have some puffy cumulus clouds form with the heating of the day. Those clouds will dissipate by or just after sunset and we’ll have clear skies for tonight. Lows will be in the 60s across the area.

Ridging will continue to strengthen over the southeastern United States on Wednesday, which only means no rain and hot conditions. We’ll have mostly sunny skies with highs a degree or two warmer than today, reaching the lower to mid-90s. Expect clear skies on Wednesday night with lows in the mid to upper 60s.
