Another evening where dry air helps bring temperatures down. Lows dip into the 60s by Monday morning.
Temperatures begin to trend upwards a bit, but the humidity remains in check. Lots of sunshine with highs climbing into the low to mid 90s in the afternoon. There won’t be any appreciable heat index due to relatively low dewpoints.
SUMMER HEAT AHEAD:
The weekend might almost feel Arctic compared to what’s coming next week. That upper-level ridge builds back even stronger, and the temperatures and heat index climb even higher. Expect highs in the upper 90s and even low 100s in some spots. Lower humidity means the heat index may not climb as high as last week, but still could approach the 105° mark in a few spots. With strong sinking motion in the atmosphere thanks to that upper air ridge, we don’t have any rain in the forecast until the weekend.
Hot and humid conditions continue on Alabama’s Gulf Coast as we head into this week. Sunday through Tuesday, the heat index will be between 100-105°, but could climb as 110° in the second half of the week. Rip current risk will trend up to moderate as the surf gets a little more rough next week.
