You Know The Drill… Hot & Humid at Midday

| July 14, 2020 @ 11:53 am

At 11:43 am, we have mostly clear skies across Central Alabama but we can already starting to see a few convective clouds forming over the east and southeastern parts of the area. We actually have a couple of isolated showers over the southwestern part of Coosa County and over the western part of Tallapoosa County. As I was typing, a shower popped up over the southern part of Randolph county.

Temperatures at this time were ranging from the mid-80s to the lower 90s. Birmingham was at 90 degrees. Troy was the hot spot at 93 degrees. The cool spots were Cullman, Haleyville, and Alexander City at 86 degrees.

For the rest of the daylight hours, more convective clouds will build, but most of Central Alabama will remain dry with mostly sunny skies. South of the I-20/59 corridor is where there will be a very small chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms. Afternoon highs will top out in the lower to mid-90s. For tonight, skies will be partly cloudy to mostly clear with dry conditions expected for all in Central Alabama before the start of the late local news. Lows will be in the upper 60s to the mid-70s.

More moisture will flow up into Central Alabama for your Wednesday which will allow for a better chance of isolated showers and storms in the northern half of the area, to a better chance of scattered showers and storms in the southern half. It will be hot and more humid with highs reaching the mid-90s for most.
