FIRST ALERT: Heat Advisory continues through Friday for all of Central Alabama

Updated: 1 hours ago

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Good Thursday morning. The big story for today and tomorrow will be the heat! A heat advisory continues for all of Central Alabama today and continues until tomorrow evening at 7 PM. Temperatures will likely climb into the mid to upper 90s with heat index values around 105°F-110°F. Just remember to stay hydrated and drink a lot of water if you have to be outside in the heat during the afternoon hours. Know the signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. If you want to do anything outdoors, you’ll want to do it in the morning hours while it is relatively cool. Temperatures are currently in the low to mid 70s. I can’t rule out some patchy fog this morning, but it won’t be as widespread or dense as it was yesterday. Best spots to see patchy fog will be in east Alabama. First Alert AccuTrack Satellite and Radar is showing us dry and mostly clear. Plan for plenty of sunshine today with temperatures heating up near 90°F at noon. I’m forecasting a high temperature of 97°F for Birmingham. I doubt we’ll see rain today, but I’ll still introduce a 10% chance just in case a lone storm develops.
