BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - THE NEXT 24 HOURS: The weather situation has greatly improved this evening. The only showers remaining on radar are located to the far southwest. Areas of fog will be developing overnight, with lows in the 70s. A high pressure ridge to our west will build over our state tomorrow and this will continue a stretch of very hot weather. Another heat advisory will go into effect on Wednesday for feels-like temperatures near or above 105º. The actual air temperature will reach the low to mid 90s, with a partly to mostly sunny sky. A few isolated storms will be possible, but most locations will reman dry.

THE REST OF THE WORKWEEK: The heat will continue to be the big story through Friday. A stray afternoon storm or shower will be possible; however, most areas will remain dry. Temperatures each day will rise into the low to mid 90s, with the heat index topping 105º. The system responsible for the heat wave should weaken by Saturday. This will allow for a better coverage of afternoon storms. That said, I’d still plan for a period of sizzling hot weather on Saturday.

THE NEXT BIG CHANGE: Long range data is suggesting a possible break in the heat next week. We will need to keep a watch on Sunday and Sunday night for a good chance of storms. This could be followed by a slight drop in muggy levels, with highs in the 80s next Tuesday. I’ll have more specifics in First Alert Weather starting at 9PM on WBRC Fox6 News.
