Heat will only continue to ramp up
High temperatures will reach the upper 90s and threaten 100°
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The brutal heat continues over the next several days! A Heat Advisory is in effect until 7pm Wednesday in Central Alabama due to heat index values up to 109° possible. Actual air temperatures will be in the middle 90s.
The only relief possible would come in the form of afternoon showers and storms. Rain will be scattered Wednesday with coverage around 40-50%, and rain will likely favor those south of U.S. 80.
Heat indices will continue to rise into the triple digits now through the upcoming weekend. Some of the hottest readings will reach 105°-110° with actual temperatures in the middle and upper 90s. Put simply, it’s the kind of heat that even us Alabamians can struggle with when it happens every day for multiple days in a row. Please remember to practice heat safety by limiting time spent outdoors, avoiding strenuous activities, wearing loose-fitting and light-colored clothing, and staying hydrated.
If you’re hoping for relief from rain and thunderstorms, don’t count on it on Thursday or Friday. Rain chances will be at or below 20% both days.
By the weekend we will see a return of at least scattered showers and storms that will cool some of us off.
Heading into next week there will be a cool-down with higher rain and storm chances and highs back down in the upper 80s and lower 90s.
