Tuesday September 2, 2014
Forecaster: James Spann

STILL HOT AND HUMID: The weather just won't change very much through Friday. Partly sunny days, and the daily risk of the hit and miss, "scattered, mostly afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms". Storms in an environment like this form in random places, and come and go pretty quickly. But, they can be strong and produce brief heavy rain in a few places. Afternoons highs will be somewhere between 91 and 94 degrees in most communities. Not very unusual for early September in Alabama.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: The ridge weakens a bit, and a surface front will ease down into Tennessee Saturday. This could give us a little bump in the number of thunderstorms Saturday and Saturday night, but it still won't rain everywhere, and the day Saturday will feature a mix of sun and clouds with a high around 90 degrees.

There is a chance drier air could temporarily drop into far North Alabama Sunday, but the front will probably fizzle out near the Tennessee Valley, and we will continue to mention at least a chance of a pop up shower or storm Sunday afternoon; the high will stay close to 90 degrees.
