The Cool Down Process Starts Tomorrow, But Still Very Hot At Midday Today

It’s another mainly sunny and hot midday across Central Alabama on this last day of the first work week of October. Just a few cumulus clouds over the southeastern parts of the area. Temperatures at this point are in the lower 90s to just at 100 degrees across the area. Birmingham was at 95 degrees. The hot spot was Uniontown at 100 degrees. Cullman and Haleyville were tied as the cool spots at 90 degrees.

More clouds are expected to build during the afternoon hours with skies becoming partly cloudy. Nearly all of Central Alabama will remain dry, but there is a very small risk of an isolated shower or two for locations south of a line from Demopolis to Montgomery to Eufaula. Afternoon highs will top out in the 90s to just over 100 degrees across the area from northwest to southeast. For tonight’s high school football games, we’ll keep the very small risk of a shower for the extreme southern parts of the area while the rest of Central Alabama remaining very warm to hot and dry. Temperatures will start off in the mid-80s to the mid-90s across the area at 6:00 pm and drop into the 70s across the area by 10:00 pm. Overnight lows will dip down into the lower 60s to the lower 70s across the area underneath clear skies.

While we’ll still reach the 90s on Saturday, it will be cooler. We’ll have a risk of isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon hours for the entire area, but the higher chances will be over the east and southeastern parts of the area. Highs will be in the lower to mid-90s across the area. A few showers and storms may linger into the evening and late-night hours on Saturday night, but all will be gone by 10:00 pm with overnight lows dropping into the mid-60s to the lower 70s.

The Atlantic Basin is rather quiet at this time with no depressions, tropical storms, or hurricanes out there. There is one area of disturbed weather just north of the Yucatan Peninsula, but it is not expected to develop into a depression.
