Hot to Start the Week; Heat & Rain Relief is On Its Way
An upper ridge over the Gulf Coast states will keep thunderstorm activity lower and will extend the heat misery through Monday. It will be hot, humid, with a chance of a few isolated to scattered afternoon showers and storms. Highs in the mid 90s to the lower 100s.

A front will push into the area during the predawn hours on Tuesday, but the better dynamics will remain well off to the north from us; however, a few strong storms may occur over the southern half of the area. We’ll have scattered showers and storms. Highs in the lower 80s to the upper 90s from north to south.

On Wednesday, it will feel much more comfortable outdoors as dewpoints will drop back into the 60s. We’ll actually be dry throughout the day across Central Alabama and highs in the lower 80s to the lower 90s.

The heat levels will slowly start increasing on Thursday, but at this point, dewpoints look to stay lower. It will be another dry day across the area with highs in the mid 80s to the mid 90s.

The airmass across the southeast will become more humid and that will introduce the chance of a few isolated to scattered afternoon showers and storms. Highs in the upper 80s to the mid 90s.

And at the end of the forecast period on Saturday… We’ll continue with hot and humid conditions with a chance of a few isolated to scattered afternoon showers and storms. Highs in the upper 80s to the upper 90s.

The Tropics
The tropics remain very quiet surprisingly as we are in the peak of the hurricane season. No new tropical cyclones are expected to form throughout the next seven days.

On This Day In Weather History
2004… Hurricane Charley rapidly deepened just hours before landfall near Punta Gorda, Florida, going from a category 2 to a category 4 hurricane. Sustained winds at landfall were 150 mph and the pressure dropped to 941 millibars. Extreme wind damage occurred over all of Charlotte County with an 8-foot storm surge in Lee County. Well over hurricane force winds in gusts occurred far inland as the hurricane accelerated to the northeast. Orlando, Florida measured a peak gust of 105 mph — an all-time record wind gust for this location. 15 people lost their lives to the hurricane and total damage was 14 billion dollars, making Charley the second-costliest hurricane up to this time.
