Hot, humid pattern continues through mid-week

Rain coverage increases later this week

Amanda: Tuesday afternoon forecast update

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Expect more of the same across Alabama in the days to come - more heat, more humidity, and only a few passing showers or storms. Wednesday will be among our hottest days of the week; most places will skyrocket into the 93-98 degree range. Factor in the humidity, and it will feel like 100-105 degrees. A few pop-up showers and storms will fire in the afternoon and evening, these will likely favor areas along and north of US Highway 80.

Thursday will be similar, but with a slight increase in the coverage of afternoon showers and storms. Our big Troy University Weather Event is happening from 4-7pm at the Trojan Student Center parking lot - we’ll have a helicopter, StormTracker 12 and FREE FOOD! I’ll be doing the weather live there at 5 and 6pm, too. It’s free and promises to be fun, too.

Friday and beyond, the pattern slowly shifts - the amount of moisture in the atmosphere will go up, which will lead to an increase in the coverage of scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms. And, the increase in clouds will knock afternoon highs down a few degrees - more like 90-ish instead of 95-ish.

In the tropics, Barry’s remnants continue to move away from us. Elsewhere, there are no signs of tropical development.
