Central AL Forecast: Hot Week Ahead

Local News

Our rain chances fade away as the week begins. Expecting a lot of sunshine & intense summer heat–highs in the low to mid 90s Monday.  As a strong upper-level ridge moves in from the West, (the same ridge that’s sparked a heatwave over the Southern Plains the past few days), 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! No considerable chances of rain in the forecast until next weekend…just a lot of sunshine and a lot of heat.
