Central Alabama's Most Detailed 7 Day Forecast

Tuesday Morning, July 26, 2016
Forecaster: James Spann

TIS THE SEASON: While many in the national media are pushing “dangerous heat”, “heat domes”, and “heat emergency” type verbiage, around here we just call it summer.

TODAY THROUGH FRIDAY: The upper ridge over Alabama will weaken slightly in coming days, opening the door for an increase in the number of scattered showers and storms, especially tomorrow through Friday. Otherwise, the classic mid-summer pattern continues with partly sunny days and highs at or just over 90 degrees. Best chance of showers and storms will come from about 1:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m… and we can’t rule out a few late night or morning showers late in the week.

And, of course, in summer there is no way of knowing in advance exactly when or where the storms pop up. You just have to keep an eye on radar.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: We continue to roll with a persistence forecast. Mixed sun and clouds Saturday and Sunday with scattered showers and storms, most active during the afternoon and evening hours. Highs generally in the low 90s.

And, next week, as we begin August, the weather just won’t change much. No reason to depart from the routine summer forecast. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

TROPICS: The Atlantic basin remains very quietly, and tropical storm formation is not expected through the week.

AT THE BEACH: About 7 to 9 hours of sunshine daily through the weekend from Gulf Shores to Panama City Beach, and of course you will deal with a passing storm from time to time. Highs on the immediate coast 87-90, with mid 90s inland. Sea water temperatures are in the mid to upper 80s. See a very detailed Gulf Coast forecast here.
