Midday Nowcast: Heat Advisory Back in Effect

| June 22, 2022 @ 10:00 am

No change in the pattern across the Deep South as the upper-level ridge remains in place causing our temperatures to remain very hot and our rain chances very low. The combination of hot temperatures and higher humidity will cause our heat index values to climb to over 105° this afternoon. For this reason, a Heat Advisory has been issued for much of Central Alabama for this afternoon. I would not be surprised if this advisory was expanded and/or extended the rest of the week.

For the rest of the week, expect a sunny sky each day with highs in the upper 90s and low 100s through Friday. Rain chances remain low, generally less than 10%. However, we will mention a weak boundary drops into the state tomorrow and could cause the slightest uptick in rain chances for some locations tomorrow, but most locations will remain dry and very hot.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: The sky will remain mostly sunny and temperatures will remain hot, but some locations could see isolated afternoon showers and storms on either day. Saturday’s highs will be in the upper 90s, while Sunday’s highs look to drop back into the mid 90s for Central Alabama. Rain chances this weekend will be in the 20-30% range.

IN THE TROPICS: All is quiet with no tropical cyclone development expected through the weekend and into next week.

NEXT WEEK: The ridge weakens and slides back to the west, allowing for a more typical summer pattern for Alabama. Highs in the low to 90s each day, and it will be a more humid, allowing for a higher coverage of showers and storms.
