FIRST ALERT: Hot temperatures expected this weekend

First Alert Weather 9p 8-7-20

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Expect a partly cloudy sky Friday night with overnight lows in the mid 70s. Rain chances will be limited.

The Next Big Thing in the short term will be the hot temperatures building across Central Alabama. The weekend is looking mostly dry and hot with highs in the mid 90s. With increasing humidity levels over the weekend, feels like temperatures could approach the triple digits. Please be smart and complete all of your yard work either before 10 a.m. or after 7 p.m.

Rain chances will be in the slight range through about Monday so you’ll probably end up having to do some watering. A lucky few won’t have to, but the majority will have to keep an eye on the plants. Next week, the rain chances climb back into the scattered range.

We continue to monitor the tropics and besides a wave between the Windward Islands and Africa, there isn’t much going on. That wave only has a 10% chance of tropical formation.
