Central Alabama’s Most Detailed Seven Day Forecast

Sunday, May 26th, 2019 – Afternoon Edition
Forecast by Bill Murray

MORE RECORDS FALLING
Tuscaloosa established a record high of 97F yesterday as an early season heatwave continues across the South. And they are already at 96 early this afternoon, with some of the 5-minute readings hitting 97F, which breaks the previous record of 95F set in 1996 and 2012. It looked like Birmingham might break its record for the date when the mercury shot up to 92, but the temperature has fallen back to 91F.

HEAT TO CONITNUE
No change is expected through Wednesday, with hot, dry conditions continuing. Daily highs will be generally between 93F-97F, which will continue to be in record territory. Birmingham’s record highs for the next three days include 98F, 99F, and 96F.

ISOLATED SHOWERS OR STORMS POSSIBLE TO END THE WORK WEEK
The ridging starts to weaken and the pattern looks to become more zonal by the end of the week. This will allow moisture levels to increase a little, enough for the possibility of a few isolated showers or storms late on Thursday, and a slightly better chance on Friday. Afternoon highs will be on a little cooling trend as well, reaching the upper 80s to the mid-90s on both days.

NEXT WEEKEND
Next weekend look to feature a chance of a few isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms on each day as we’ll have a zonal pattern over us. While temperatures look to remain hot, temperatures will not be hot as they are this weekend. Still, the upper 80s to the lower 90s remain possible.

BEACH FORECAST CENTER
It feels like summer here and the beach provides a perfect getaway. Great weather this week along the beautiful beaches of Alabama and Northwest Florida. Look for a chance of showers and storms Friday, but the rest of the week should be dry. Highs will be in the upper 80s to near 90F. Lows will be in the middle 70s. Water temperatures are already in the middle 80s. Get the latest weather and rip current forecasts for the beaches from Fort Morgan to Panama City on our Beach Forecast Center page.
