Saturday was a mostly sunny and hot July day across Alabama. A couple of thunderstorms tried to form across the Birmingham Metro during the late afternoon, but they quickly died out. Highs across the area ranged from 88F at Alex City and Auburn to 95F at the Oakmulgee Forest Service observation site. The overnight was fair and calm, with lows in the lower 70s.

MORE SUMMERTIME HEAT TODAY: Skies will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy today with more heat and humidity. High temperatures will rise into the lower to middle 90s with almost no chance of rain. Heat index values will be between 94-99F.

RAIN CHANCES RAMP UP A BIT TO START THE WEEK: An upper-level disturbance will slide by to the north and east on Monday. This will allow a frontal system to push closer to Alabama from the north. The presence of the front will be enough of a spark to cause an increase in showers and storms on Monday and Tuesday. It looks like the best chances will be Monday night. Rainfall amounts could be around one-third of an inch on average. Highs Monday and Tuesday will be in the lower 90s.

MIDWEEK AND BEYOND: High pressure will ridge back in in the wake of the passing trough, keeping us mostly dry in the Wednesday through Friday time frame. Highs will gradually ratchet back up into the middle 90s and heat index values will climb to above 100F.

VOODOO TERRITORY: The second week of the forecast period looks hot and humid with widely scattered afternoon showers and storms. Highs will be in the middle 90s, lows in the lower 70s. There are signs a backdoor cold front may try to sidle our way from the east, which could concentrate those showers/storm chances, especially over eastern sections.

TROPICS: We continue in a holding pattern in the Atlantic Hurricane Season. No disturbances of note in the Atlantic, the Caribbean, or the Gulf of Mexico. The next week looks very quiet, but we do see some signs that the waves coming off the African coast will have more energy and we approach the end of the month. We also know that an upper pulse in the Madden-Julian Oscillation with start aiding in upward motion across the basin, and when combined with warmer than average sea surface temperatures, the season will start heating up. The GFS shows a pretty vigorous disturbance in the Eastern Atlantic out at about hour 354, of the last day of the month. Stay tuned.
