Central Alabama's Most Detailed 7 Day Forecast

Tuesday morning, August 19, 2014
Forecaster: James Spann

HERE COMES THE HEAT: Showers and storms will become more scattered in nature across Alabama today as the air aloft becomes warmer, and we trend toward a hot and mostly dry pattern tomorrow through Friday thanks to an upper high building over the region. While we can’t rule out a shower or storm somewhere during the afternoon and evening hours on these three days, most communities will be rain-free, with highs in the mid to upper 90s as it will finally feel like summer in Alabama.

HOT WEEKEND: Afternoon highs in the upper 90s are likely this weekend, with only widely scattered afternoon storms both days. Should be the hottest so far this summer.

Heat levels will slowly back down next week as the upper high weakens and drifts to the west. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and details.

GULF COAST WEATHER: Just a few widely scattered storms today, otherwise mostly sunny days and fair nights through Friday. The weekend should feature mostly sunny days as well with only isolated storms. Highs on the immediate coast will be in the 87 to 90 degree range, with sea water temperatures mostly in the mid 80s.

TROPICS: All is quiet and tropical storm formation is not expected across the Atlantic basin this week.
