The weekend looks hot and mostly dry; we are forecasting a good supply of sunshine tomorrow and Sunday with highs up in the low to mid 90s. The chance of an afternoon shower is not zero, but it is so small that we won’t mention it in the forecast. Showers should be confined to far South Alabama, and even there they will be widely spaced.

HOT, MUGGY SUMMER WEATHER: The upper ridge will strengthen across Alabama today, meaning highs up in the low to mid 90s with just a few widely scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and early tonight. Pretty much the same story tomorrow; the high will be in the 92-95 degree range with a few pop up storms by afternoon, but there is a chance organized storms could reach far North Alabama late in the day and tomorrow night ahead of a surface front.

An upper high, anchored over the nation’s mid-section which represents the center of the hot air, has expanded into Alabama, and that will keep afternoon highs up in the mid 90s today. Combine that with high dew points and that will make for another very uncomfortable day. A few showers and storms will form this afternoon, but they will be widely scattered, like yesterday.
