Hot this weekend; better storm chances next week

If you’re planning on doing some walking in the morning expect a calm wind with temperatures around 67 degrees to start the day. On our way up to about 79 by 8 a.m. More humidity by the noon hour and we’re start looking at a chance for an isolated shower or storm. This activity will continue into the afternoon, but the bigger story Saturday afternoon will be the heat

As far as northeast Alabama goes you will start off the same way with a touch of fog with temperatures in the mid to upper 60s. By the noon hour we could see a few very isolated storms pop up. This is why we added that 10 percent chance of rain to the forecast for Saturday.

Day by day, the rain chances continue to improve and they will peak Tuesday into Wednesday. A cool front will bring us some relief to the heat but more importantly it will bring us a better chance of some much-needed rain. If you need to get that yard mowed, the best days are going to be Saturday Sunday and Monday. Tuesday and Wednesday rain chances are on the way.

If you’re planning a camping trip this weekend just watch out for an isolated shower or storm. Otherwise it is just going to be hot with high temperatures in the low 90s, heat index near 100, so make sure you’re drinking plenty of water. Don’t forget the bug spray and the sunscreen.

Temperatures in the low 90s through Monday and then with that front in the area Tuesday through Thursday we have rain chances increasing across the area. Summer weather returns for your Friday, Saturday and Sunday of next week with hit-and-miss showers and storms, high humidity and isolated downpours.
