Sunday turns hotter and drier | Central AL Forecast

October 02 2021 06:00 pm

An area of high pressure will build over us on Sunday, and this will reduce the chance for rain. We will be partly cloudy, hotter, and still humid with spotty showers and a few thunderstorms. High temperatures climb into the lower 90s, and the heat index will be in the lower 100s.

Next Week Outlook: The area of high pressure will be centered over Texas and Oklahoma to start the week. Alabama will be on the eastern-side of the ridge. This will keep us mostly dry, hot and still humid. High temperatures will be in the lower to mid 90s. The heat index will be 105-108°+ through Tuesday. Starting on Wednesday, the ridge of high pressure will break down and move to the west. We will be partly cloudy with spotty showers and thunderstorms. It stays hot with high temperatures in the lower 90s. Thursday will be hot and humid, but we will have a better chance for scattered thunderstorms. This will continue into Friday too. High temperatures will be around 90° each day.
