The Heat Continues!
Heat Index in the 100s
High pressure flattens out a bit but will continue to keep the area mostly dry this afternoon. A trough (formed out of the remnants of Barry) will slide through to our north, so rain chances will increase today for northern parts of Alabama and Georgia. I don’t think the rain will make it this far south, but wouldn’t rule out some of it sliding down to the extreme northern tier (Chambers, Troup) of our viewing area. For most us, we can expect only spotty showers and maybe a thunderstorm or two during the afternoon with the daytime heat.
High pressure builds back in Friday and hangs with us through the weekend, but that doesn’t mean we won’t get any rain. Moderate moisture will get trapped under the high pressure and could give us a better chance for showers and thunderstorms across the weekend. The daytime heating will also help aid in the formation of showers. If we do get some rain, look for it mainly in the afternoon and evening.
Daytime highs will remain at least a few degrees above the norm with heat indices cracking the low 100s and could reach up to 106 degrees in some spots. Will need to keep a watch out for possible Heat Advisories. Nighttime lows will stay up to 5 degrees above average.
TODAY- Very isolated showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon under partly sunny skies. Highs in the mid 90s. Heat indices in the low 100s.
TONIGHT- Mostly clear overnight. Lows in the mid 70s.
WEDNESDAY- Isolated showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon under partly sunny skies. Highs in the mid 90s. Heat indices in the low 100s.
