Heat Levels Rising In Coming Days; Dry Through Saturday : The Alabama Weather Blog

2 min read

WARM AFTERNOON: Temperatures are in the 84-90 degree range across Alabama this afternoon with a mix of sun and clouds. Tonight will be mostly fair with a low in the 60s.

RISING HEAT LEVELS: The weather stays dry tomorrow through Saturday with mostly sunny days, fair nights, and a warming trend. Highs will be in the 90s, and by Saturday some spots might even touch the 100 degree mark. Heat index values will be over 100 degrees over the weekend.

Moisture levels rise a bit Sunday, and we will bring in the chance of a few widely scattered showers, but for now we aren’t expecting anything especially widespread.

NEXT WEEK: We will maintain the chance of a few scattered showers on a daily basis through the week, but the deepest moisture will likely be west of Alabama. Rain amounts will be light and spotty; the higher rain coverage will be over the southern counties, but even there no wash-out. Heat levels drop with highs in the upper 80s and low 90s through the week. See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.

TROPICS: An elongated area of low pressure over the Florida peninsula continues to produce a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Although upper-level winds are expected to be only marginally conducive, some slow development is possible while the system moves northeastward offshore of the U.S. Southeast coast tonight through late week. Regardless of development, heavy rainfall is forecast to continue across portions of the Florida peninsula during the next few days.

And, a broad area of low pressure could form over the weekend across the southwestern Gulf of Mexico. Environmental conditions appear conducive for some slow development early next week while the system moves slowly westward or west-northwestward. If anything develops here, it will most likely move into Mexico.

No tropical systems will threaten the Central Gulf Coast (Gulf Shores to Panama City Beach) for the next 7-10 days.

ON THIS DATE IN 1915: An estimated F4 tornado moved northeast from northwest of Waterville, Iowa crossing the Mississippi River two miles south of Ferryville, Wisconsin. A man and his daughter were killed in one of three homes that were obliterated southwest of “Heytman,” a small railroad station on the Mississippi River.

Look for the next video briefing here by 6:00 a.m. tomorrow…
