BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - We continue to experience some of the hottest weather of the year. Temperatures will bottom out in the 70s tonight, with a mostly clear sky. Another heat advisory will go into effect on Friday, so keep heat safety in mind. When it comes to weather related fatalities, heat is number one. Stay well hydrated and take frequent breaks. Highs will reach the middle to upper 90s, with heat index levels topping 105º.

I want to give you a First Alert for a possible shower or storm Friday evening. There is a chance a few pop-ups could drop-in from the northeast direction late in the day. The chance for a passing shower or storm will continue past 8 p.m.

THE WEEKEND AND NEXT WEEK: We will have another heat advisory for Saturday, with a few scattered showers and storms in the afternoon. The chance for storms will increase on Sunday afternoon. Storms will be developing to the north and moving south. Some may be strong, with gusty winds and intense lightning. The chance for showers and storms will continue Sunday night and into Monday.

By Tuesday, most of the wet weather will be limited to the far southern part of our area. We will experience a break in the heat wave, with highs in the 80s and lows in the 60s. A break in the extremely muggy conditions will be quite noticeable during the overnights.
