3 min read

HIGHER RAIN CHANCES: As the left over remnants of Beryl pass well north of Alabama today, showers and storms will increase in coverage as deeper tropical moisture moves into the state. Rain chances today are in the 60-70 percent range, and it will be the wettest day of the week. Storms today will produce tremendous amounts of lightning and very heavy rainfall which can easily lead to areas of flash flooding. Highs today are near 90°, but with the very higher humidity levels, heat index values will be in excess of 105° and yet another heat advisory has been issued for portions of Central Alabama.

BIRMINGHAM ALMANAC: For July 9th, the average high for Birmingham is 91° and the average low is 72°. The record high is 102° set in 1930, while the record low is 55° set in 1947. We average 0.18” of precipitation on this date, and the record value is 3.96” set in 1968.

IN THE TROPICS: For the North Atlantic, Caribbean Sea, and the Gulf of Mexico, no tropical cyclone formation is expected during the next 7 days. However, the Weather Prediction Center is issuing advisories on Beryl, located inland over Arkansas.

REST OF THE WEEK: A drier airmass will be pulled into Alabama tomorrow with only an isolated shower or storm possible. Highs will be in the upper 80s and with lower humidity levels will make for a pleasant summer day. Most of the state will be dry Thursday and Friday with mainly sunny days and fair nights. Highs will be in the 90s, and humidity level will be low for July.

WEEKEND WEATHER: Dry air stays in place, and the weekend looks generally rain-free with a good supply of sunshine both days. We will mention just a small risk of a shower Sunday. Heat levels tick up with highs in the upper 90s.

NEXT WEEK: For now the weather looks very routine for mid-summer. Partly sunny, hot, humid days with “scattered, mostly afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms” on a daily basis. Highs in the 90s, lows in the 70s.

BEACH FORECAST CENTER: Highs in the upper 80s and low 90s with storms on a daily basis. Water temperatures are very warm with mid-80s being reported up and down the Northern Gulf Coast. PLEASE pay attention to the Rip Current Flag System at each beach. Get the latest weather and rip current forecasts for the beaches from Fort Morgan to Panama City on our Beach Forecast Center page. There, you can select the forecast of the region that you are interested in visiting.

WORLD TEMPERATURE EXTREMES: Over the last 24 hours, the highest observation outside the U.S. was 121.6F at Adrar, Algeria. The lowest observation was -90.0F at Vostok, Antarctica.
