Ending the week with sun and heat

All week, increasing temperatures have been looming in the forecast.

Posted: Aug 6, 2020 6:55 PM

By Saturday, highs hit the mid 90s again and North Alabama will be back above average. Until then, Friday is a quiet, seasonably hot and sunny day. The day starts will some patchy fog in spots that saw rain Thursday. Lows drop close to the 70° mark and we’ll quickly warm with abundant sunshine. Expect highs in the lower 90s during the afternoon. Unlike the past few days, there’s no rain chance for either Friday or Saturday.

Saturday starts out similarly, with lows near 70 and sunshine from start to finish. It’s not until Sunday that the isolated storm chance is back in the forecast. Sunday should also be our last unseasonably hot afternoon for a bit as an increase in cloud coverage and storm chances help keep the mid 90s at bay starting Monday.

Speaking of rain, it’s looking like both Monday and Tuesday will feature those typical afternoon pop up storms. Starting Wednesday, expect more off and on storm activity, a trend that holds through the end of the week. Daytime heating will certainly boost storm chances the second half of the day, though. Highs remain in the lower 90s all week long.
