A high pressure ridge will build into the region today and this will help to reduce the chances of thunderstorms.
The heat officially returns as it will definitely be hot and muggy today and extending through the rest of the week.
We expect partly cloudy skies across Alabama today with most locations staying dry. There will be some pop-up scattered thunderstorms develop in the heat of the afternoon.
The best chances of seeing the scattered showers and storms will be along and east of I-65. Even in these areas, the rain will be scattered with most areas remaining dry.
We expect the high temperatures will reach into the 90’s across the state this afternoon. The only exception would be the higher elevations of northeast Alabama with highs in the upper 80’s.
