After and unsettled weekend and start to the workweek because of Barry, we return to a forecast pattern of isolated rain chances and very hot temperatures. Rain chances for today will sit around 20% or less, and in turn, the heat goes up. We’ll see more mid and upper 90s this afternoon with the best chances of some cooling rain still staying west of I-65. More clouds in the west will also mean temperatures in the east will be a few degrees warmer.
Not much changes for midweek, except the focus for any isolated showers and storms, maybe farther north. But we stay hot and humid with highs in the low to mid-90s again. The weather pattern across the Deep South will still be influenced by the remnant trough of Barry by Thursday, so we’ll call for another day with showers and storms isolated around the region with highs once again in the low to mid-90s.
Friday and the weekend ahead look a little murky. Right now, rain chances look to increase as a ridge of high pressure builds to the south and east. This brings plenty of humid air into the region from the Gulf of Mexico, fuel for afternoon showers and storms to get going. We’ll adjust the forecast as we get closer to Friday
