Temperatures continue to get hotter from here...
Record highs could be tied or broken next week
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Whew... Saturday was very, very warm, but it’s only going to get worse from here. Temperatures stayed in the 80s Saturday, but they’ll move into the 90s Sunday. Then, the 90-degree heat will continue through all of next week!
Highs in the middle 90s will put some record highs in jeopardy throughout the workweek.
The good news about this heatwave is that humidity will stay low. Dew points will be in the 50s to lower 60s, so the hot temperatures won’t be paired with muggy conditions. It’ll feel as nice as it can when you’ve got temperatures well into the 90s.
Of course, low humidity means dry air, and that dry air is staying centered over Alabama. Bone dry weather is expected through the workweek, which means we’ll have to keep an eye on air quality and drought conditions.
There are some signs that a sprinkle or two may be possible Memorial Day Weekend, but measurable rain still doesn’t look likely. Stay tuned for your holiday weekend forecast!
Tropical Update: It’s already that time of year again! The first storm of the 2021 hurricane season formed early this morning. Subtropical Storm Ana will be short-lived and stay out to sea, so it is not a threat to land. This is the 7th year in a row a named storm has formed before the official start of hurricane season (June 1st).
