MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Well, it was nice while it lasted right? The weekend offered slightly cooler weather, but that will become a thing of the past over the next several afternoons, as a sprawling upper ridge brings more hot, dry weather to our state. The heat will threaten to tie and break records later this week, and the lack of rain will push us deeper into drought...
And, the persistent upper ridge will keep the chance of widespread rain very low through the next 7-10 days.
Our drought is going to become much worse over the next couple of weeks, and the risk of wildfires will continue to increase.
Tropic Update: We’re tracking a trio of storms in the tropics, so things are definitely busy... but there’s no risk of any storm affecting the United States over the next week.
