More Heat Today; Rain Chances Increasing | Central AL Forecast

October 02 2021 06:00 pm

For today, our chances for afternoon storms head up as the upper-level ridge weakens slightly overhead. Expect a few pop-up showers by afternoon, followed by additional scattered showers & storms for Thursday & Friday. As always during the Summer, any storm that does develop will be capable of producing heavy downpours and frequent lightning.

As far as temperatures go, the summer heat won’t be going anywhere through the weekend, featuring highs in the 90s & heat indices in the low 100s. The good news is that afternoon highs will trend down just a bit due to the increase in afternoon showers and storms.

That’s all for now!  Be sure to follow the CBS 42 Storm Team on:
