Happy Thursday! Pack your umbrella today because you’re going to need it!
Today will be a slightly different day than we have been accustomed to here during the month of July. Coming into today we have seen 90-degrees 16 straight days but that won’t likely continue today. The reason is because we have a more unsettled pattern shaping up today. A stationary front has been stalled to our north and will slightly shift to the south today allowing for storms to be wider spread and push into North Alabama. Rain today should keep our temperatures into the upper 70s and low 80s. It will all be determined by the amount of showers and storms we see today.
Friday and Saturday will bring more storms chances as well along with high humidity. Temperature both days will likely stay below 90-degrees, but the highs themselves will all depend on sunshine. We are more likely to see the mid to upper 80s both days, but feels like temperatures will also be sky high due to the intense humidity. We are watching the potential for a cold front on Sunday will potentially bring us a slight break in the humidity as we move into next week. It is still not clear if the front will push through the Valley or pass just to our north and stall. If it passes through then we will see overnight temperatures next week fall into the mid to upper 60s with lower humidity. We also are keeping a close on Tropical Storm Isaias and its impacts for us here. Still early in the process but we will closely monitor this as it continues to develop.
