Weather Xtreme: We Dry Out but Get Extremely Hot for the Next Couple of Days

| July 29, 2021 @ 6:19 am

HEAT ADVISORIES: All of Central Alabama remains in a Heat Advisory for today and through Friday. The west and central parts of North Alabama is under a Heat Advisory until 7 pm this evening, but it will most likely be extended into Friday by late this morning as unseasonably hot and humid conditions will again be in place. Heat index values will once again be in the 105-109º range.

TODAY & FRIDAY: Today will be a very hot and humid day across the area, with a good supply of sunshine. Drier air has worked into the mid-levels of the atmosphere, which will keep nearly everyone in Central Alabama dry today. Only a slight chance of an isolated shower or two will be possible for locations along and south of a line from Demopolis to Montgomery to Hurtsboro. Afternoon highs will be in the mid to upper 90s across the area.

Nearly the same story on Friday as much of the area will be dry with plenty of sunshine and very hot temperatures. A few isolated showers may be possible for locations east of I-65 and north of I-20. Highs will be in the upper 90s to right at or just over 100 degrees.

THIS WEEKEND: On Saturday, moisture will start to move back into the mid-levels as a cold front will begin to approach the area from the north. Skies will be mostly sunny, but we’ll have a chance for a few isolated showers and storms across the area. Highs will be in the mid to upper 90s. Rain chances start to rise on Sunday as the front starts to move into the area and stalls out over the northern parts. We can expect a few scattered showers and storms during the afternoon hours, with highs reaching the mid-80s to the lower 90s.

THE FIRST HALF OF NEXT WEEK: Showers and thunderstorms become more likely on Monday as the front continues to hang out over the northern parts of the area. Skies will be mostly cloudy and highs will be in the lower 80s to the lower 90s. The front finally starts to move southward on Tuesday and will push much of the shower and thunderstorm activity over the southern half of the area. However, we still can’t rule out a few scattered showers and storms over the northern half. Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s. Wednesday looks like we return to more of the typical summertime weather we expect to see in Central Alabama. Mostly sunny with a slight chance of a few isolated to scattered afternoon showers and storms. Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s.

THE TROPICS: All is quiet across the Atlantic Basin, and tropical cyclone formation is not expected within the next five days.
