Hottest Week So Far This Year

Hottest Week So Far This Year

| July 13, 2020 @ 5:46 am

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.

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.
