Wednesday will be another very hot and humid day as the upper-level area of high pressure stays north of Alabama. Highs will again be in the mid 90s with feels like temps between 104-108°.
Another upper-level disturbance will move along the eastern side of the high pressure into Alabama after sunset. This will be fast moving, so flooding won’t be a major concern, however, there may be some localized heavy rain and frequent lightning. Like Tuesday’s storms, there will be some gusts upwards of 40-50 mph too.
SPC has placed areas along and east of I-65 in Alabama in a Level 2 Marginal Risk for severe weather. The main threat will be strong winds.
This upper level ridge doesn’t show any major signs of weakeing, however, a little movement Thursday will allow a front to creep in by Friday and that will i turn bring us some less humid air Saturday. It’s not the heat, but the humidity that is the real bear.
Weekend Outlook: The front will move across Alabama and weaken. It will make it mostly sunny and less humid. We stay hot with high temperatures in the lower 90s. Sunday will be a dry, less humid, and hot day with plenty of sunshine. High temperatures will be in the lower 90s.
