Temperatures will fall into the upper 60s overnight. Expect dry conditions tonight and mostly clear night sky with winds from the northeast at 5 to 10 mph. The Next Big Thing is the chance for showers and storms (more coverage than today) on Sunday.

Scattered Storms Sunday: Sunday will also end up hot. We’ll start the day in the mid to upper 60s and heat up into the upper 80s and lower 90s. Scattered storms will be possible Sunday afternoon and evening with a rain chance around 40 percent by the afternoon and evening.

Humidity levels won’t be too bad, so the heat index will only climb into the mid 90s. Just make sure you stay hydrated and take several breaks if you plan on working outdoors. Any storm that forms Sunday could produce heavy rainfall, gusty winds, and lightning. Just remember that if thunder roars, go indoors. Great advice for this time of the year if you are at the pool or the lake.

Summertime Pattern Next Week: Next week is looking like a typical summertime pattern for Alabama. Each day will give us a chance for an isolated shower or storm. Rain chances around 20 to 30 percent. We will likely see highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s with overnight lows in the 60s. There’s a chance we could see slightly cooler air filter into Alabama by the end of next week. We’ll trend cooler with morning temperatures by next Thursday and Friday possibly dropping into the lower 60s.

Tropical Update: The hurricane season has officially started and will continue through the end of November. Ironically enough, we saw Tropical Depression Two form in the Gulf of Mexico and watched it strengthen into Tropical Storm Arlene. It has since weakened into a remnant low after being downgraded to a tropical depression in the last 7 hours.
