Temps hitting the 100 degree mark with rain on the way

Rain is back later this week

More heat for the area throughout our Tuesday evening. There will be an isolated shower possible popping up, but about 98% of our viewing area will stay rain free throughout the day. Temps hit the 100 degree mark in Walker county and upper 90s in many spots from I-65 westward.

Overnight, expect a few high clouds, but a mostly clear night in most spots. There will be an increase of moisture over the course of the night so the muggy air will be back for central Alabama to fuel a few scattered storms later into the day on Wednesday. The rain chances will be 40% coverage for our Wednesday, but the better chances of rain coverage will begin on Thursday and carry into Thursday night and again on Friday. This is going to be thanks to the tail end of a wave that is swinging through the Ohio Valley to wrap up the week.

Temps will be a bit cooler and into the upper 80s and lower 90s for the end of the week thanks to the cloud cover and the wider coverage of rain across the state.

The weekend forecast is going to be pretty routine for the state. Highs in the lower 90s to middle 90s in a few spots on Sunday with a few scattered afternoon showers or thunderstorms possible for the viewing area, but many of us will stay partly cloudy, humid and hot.
