STILL HOT, STILL HUMID: Alabama’s weather will be pretty much what you expect in mid to late July; we are forecast hot, humid days through the weekend with just a handful of isolated showers and thunderstorms around during the afternoon and evening hours. There is a surface front north of the state today that might bring strong storms to parts of Tennessee, but that front has no chance of moving into Alabama thanks to a strong upper ridge overhead.

JULY IN ALABAMA: It is the time of the year when the weather doesn’t change much. Say “hot and humid with a few isolated afternoon storms” and you will be right on the money.
