Forecaster: James Spann

HOT THROUGH THE WEEKEND: Not much change in the overall forecast thinking. An upper high will build across the Deep South today, meaning afternoon highs today through Sunday will be generally in the mid to upper 90s. The National Weather Service in Birmingham has issued a "heat advisory" for their county warning area due to the heat and humidity. Partly sunny days, fair nights, and the risk of isolated thunderstorms each afternoon. The chance of any one spot specifically seeing a thunderstorm will be in the 10-20 percent range during the afternoon and evening hours. Where they do form, they will pack a punch, but most places will stay dry.

FOOTBALL WEATHER: Not exactly the most comfortable time to start high school football in Alabama; we project kickoff temperatures in the 87 to 90 degree range tonight, then falling through the 80s during the games, possibly reaching the upper 70s by the final whistle. The chance of any one stadium seeing a thunderstorm is about 15 percent.
