HOT SUMMER DAYS: The weather will trend drier across Alabama through the weekend. Understand, there is always the risk of a “pop up” shower or storm during the heat of the day this time of the year, but they should be few and far between through Sunday. Better odds of seeing a shower are over the southern quarter of state, and near the Gulf Coast. Otherwise, expect partly to mostly sunny days and fair nights with highs in the 90-94 degree range, right at seasonal averages.
NEXT WEEK: We expect routine summer weather next week. Partly sunny, hot, humid days with a few random, scattered showers and storms during the afternoon and evening hours; generally between 2:00 and 10:00 p.m. Highs will be in the 92-96 degree range. As is typically the case this time of the year, the main rain producing systems will pass far to the north, near the Canadian border, where the jet stream is located. See the daily Weather Briefing video for maps, graphics, and more details.
TROPICS: Still no sign of any tropical storms or hurricanes across the Atlantic basin through next week. Remember, the peak of the season is yet to come… August, September, and early October. The season ends at the end of November.
