Warm, Humid Days Continue; A Few Scattered Showers : The Alabama Weather Blog

2 min read

SUMMER-LIKE PATTERN CONTINUES: We note a few scattered showers and storms over the northern quarter of Alabama just before sunrise, otherwise it is a mostly cloudy, humid morning with temperatures in the upper 60s and low 70s. Look for a mix of sun and clouds today with a high in the mid 80s; a few widely scattered showers could develop this afternoon; the chance of any one location seeing rain is 20-30 percent.

REST OF THE WEEK: The weather just won’t change much tomorrow through Friday. Warm, humid days with potential for a few random, scattered showers and storms daily. The best chance of seeing a shower is during the afternoon and evening hours, and highs will remain in the 80s. The probability of any one community seeing rain daily is in the 30-40 percent range.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: As the upper ridge strengthens, heat levels will creep up with afternoon highs around 90. Otherwise expect a mix of sun and clouds both days with just a small risk of a shower for any one given location. It should be the hottest weekend so far in 2023.

NEXT WEEK: Quite frankly we aren’t seeing much change, at least through the first part of the week. Warm, humid days continue with a few scattered showers and storms around. Some evidence humidity levels could drop a bit Thursday and Friday as an upper trough forms over the eastern third of the U.S. See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.

No sign of any organized severe weather threat for Alabama at least for the next 7-10 days.
