The intense heat continues to fade. After 98° on Thursday & Friday, yesterday’s high was 94°, today we will be generally in the lower 90’s. Still hot, but not as hot. The heat index will still edge up over 100. A few spots may be close to 105 on the Heat Index, mainly in west Alabama. NWS has opted to keep the Heat Advisory for most areas from I-65 westward. It includes Montgomery county. Scattered thunderstorms will “bubble up” in the afternoon heat, with a 30% chance in most places, a little higher at 40% on the coast. Rain chances improve tomorrow.
NEXT FEW DAYS: As the upper high fades, a trough of low pressure develops which will promote better rain chances. In fact, showers & storms will peak in the “likely” 60% category Monday & Tuesday. Storms will start to thin out Thursday.
TROPICS: The tropics are amazingly quiet right now. There are no systems being targeted or monitored by NHC over the next 5 days. Hang on, though, the season’s activity will pick up, especially in August and September.
I’ll have your next video update for you, online by Monday morning at 4:45AM. Have a great Sunday!
