Central AL Forecast: Dry, hot weather back in the region

Top Stories

We’re switching things up for the second part of the weekend. Instead of the scattered showers and storms around the region, we’ll stay mostly dry and very warm today. In the upper levels, winds will become more northerly, bringing in much drier air and suppressing rain chances. At the surface, humid air will stay put and sweltering conditions are expected. Highs will rise into the mid 90s in the warmest spots today with feels like temperatures again well into the triple digits. 

We crank the heat up even more on Monday with temperatures in the mid and upper 90s, with humidity still around. This will lead to the feels like temperatures reaching the 105-110 range. With school back in session and outdoor time for sports picking up, please make sure everyone is staying cool and hydrated. More of the same is ahead for Tuesday with only small rain chances around. 

Rain returns to the forecast in a big way on Wednesday as a front sags south through the state. Numerous showers and some thunderstorms are likely for midweek with rain chances continuing into Thursday. We’ll start to dry back out by Friday with near average temperatures, highs near 90 in the afternoon.
