Otherwise, the sky is partly to mostly sunny with temperatures generally in the 88-93 degree range. Tonight will be mostly fair and humid.

FOGGY START: A dense fog advisory is in effect for much of Central Alabama this morning; visibilities are quite restricted in some areas. The fog will dissipate by mid-morning. We note some rain over Mobile and Baldwin counties at daybreak today, but most of the state is dry, and we expect much calmer weather today with a good supply of sunshine. Odds of an afternoon shower today are very small (10 percent or less over the northern half of the state for any one given point), and the high will be in the low 90s, right at seasonal averages.

HOT, HUMID SUMMER WEATHER: Look for a high in the low 90s today, and mid 90s tomorrow as heat levels continue to rise across Alabama. The sky will be partly sunny both days, and while showers and thunderstorms are possible, they will be few and far between. Then, on Sunday, a surface boundary will slice into the hot, humid, unstable air, and will set the stage for strong, possibly severe thunderstorms.

AN OCEAN OF HUMIDITY: Very moist, tropical air will remain over the Deep South today, and we expect scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms. In fact, showers have already formed early this morning across parts of North/Central Alabama. And, like recent days, the showers will be very efficient rain producers. We will have more clouds than sun, and the high today will be in the mid 80s for most communities. The average high for July 8 at Birmingham is 91.

VERY HUMID DAY: A blanket of moist air continues to cover Alabama today, and we have a number of showers and thunderstorms on radar at mid-afternoon. Like yesterday, they are very effective rain producers thanks to the tropical airmass in place; motion today is to the south/southeast. Nothing severe, and not much lightning. The showers will persist well into the night as a broad upper trough remains over the region.

MORE SHOWERS LATER TODAY: The radar is quiet early this morning, but we expect scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms to form across Alabama this afternoon and tonight in the tropical airmass that covers the state. Odds of any one spot getting wet this afternoon is around 70 percent, and the showers and storms will be very efficient rain producers due to the high precipitable water values. Look for more clouds than sun today with a high in the mid to upper 80s.
