Central AL Forecast: Rainy Sunday; Heat cranks up next week

Forecast

Tracking the Tropics

More Tracking the Tropics

Scattered showers & a few storms this morning as they track into the state from the Northwest, followed by a round a heavy downpours and a few strong storms as a storm complex pushes across the state from north to south. The main time frame from the more widespread rain is from approximately mid morning into the afternoon. Otherwise, a hot & humid day with highs once again in the 90s.

Our rain chances fade away as the week begins with more sunshine returning for Monday.  As a strong upper-level ridge moves in from the West, the high temperatures will climb even higher into the mid & upper 90s.  We’ll need to be wary of possible Heat Advisories that could be issued this coming week–the heat index could potentially reach the mid-100s if our dew points are high enough.

The heat will be the main weather story for this coming week–be sure to limit your outside time as much as possible & remember to stay hydrated!
