The dangerous heatwave gripping the American Heartland is spreading eastward.  Now, much of Alabama is included in a Heat Advisory. 

SEVERE RISK THURSDAY:  Big Heat – Big Storms. The Storm Prediction Center has much of central Alabama in a Severe Risk tomorrow.

Damaging wind gusts in the main threat.  Scattered to numerous storms are a good bet tomorrow.


NEXT FEW DAYS:   Thursday will be extremely hot.  Heat index as high as 108.  Some strong/severe storms area a good bet. The higher than normal rain chance continues Friday.     Over the weekend, the number of storms will thin out quite a bit.   High in the mid 90’s.   Low at night mid 70’s. 

Crazy numbers on the heat index Thursday here in Alabama.  But, look at Mississippi!   Wow.
