Mostly Sunny and Hot Today

High pressure will take charge over Alabama weather today. This will provide mostly sunny and hot conditions across the state.

It will be a hot and humid day with the afternoon highs to reach the middle 90’s with southern location reaching the upper 90’s.

Temperatures will heat rapidly into the 80s this morning, and the heat index will be around 100 this afternoon.

We don’t expect to see scattered thunderstorms today, while the chance is not zero…they will be hard to find today.

Meanwhile, the first tropical depression depression of 2014 has formed. This will likely become Arthur within the next 24 hours.

Models take the system to just off the North Carolina coast, as a minimal hurricane on Friday.  We don’t expect this system to impact Alabama weather.
