Muggy overnight, more storms Thursday

After Wednesday’s storms, skies will remain mostly cloudy and there will likely be some fog, especially in the pockets that experienced the heavy downpours. We’re in for one more day with storms before July heat makes a comeback all thanks to yet another July cool front. This one sparks the storms tomorrow, but likely won’t drop temperatures heading toward the weekend. Instead, drier air will filter in setting the stage for a return of July heat. Early next week, a stronger cold front arrives, bringing back the cooler 60s for the morning and only mid 80s for afternoon highs.

Overnight,your A/C will hum trying to combat the muggy air. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy with patchy fog and overnight lows in the low 70s. Thursday starts with partly cloudy skies, but quickly, storms build as the cold front approaches. Most of the afternoon will feature numerous thunderstorms; before the rain, highs reach the mid to upper 80s. Storms may last into late Thursday night with gradual clearing after midnight and somewhat drier conditions in north Alabama with lows in the mid to upper 60s to around 70 closer to metro Birmingham. Sunshine and July heat return Friday with temperatures soaring to the low 90s. Any rain that forms will remain far to our south. Even hotter Saturday as temperatures reach the low to mid 90s. Sunday should be a partly cloudy day, still hot with a few isolated afternoon thunderstorms possible by late afternoon. Highs in the lower 90s. Monday will start partly cloudy with scattered to numerous thunderstorms likely during the afternoon and evening with highs in the upper 80s. Then cooler and drier weather moves in for the middle of next week.
