A strong upper-level ridge of high pressure will produce a dome of heat and humidity across the region today. The combination of this heat and humidity will produce some dangerously high temperatures and heat index values across much of Northwest Alabama this afternoon and evening. Heat index values will remain above 100 degrees for several hours, and potentially peak at or above 105 degrees for a few hours in the afternoon.
Heat Advisory for majority of North Alabama and Southern Middle Tennessee is in effect Friday 12pm to 7pm. Heat Index values in the 105-107 degree range are possible.
Sizzling summer heat lingers into the weekend! High temperatures will be in the low/mid 90s on Friday and Saturday with heat index values peaking on Friday ~107 degrees. Temperatures will improve and be in the upper 80s/lower 90s on Sunday with heat index values in the lower 90s.
It's going to be HOT through the end of the week! Temps by Friday will rise into the mid 90s with heat index values getting close to 104. Take Action and Be prepared! Here are some heat safety tips: never leave children, disabled adults, or pets in parked vehicles; wear lightweight, light-colored clothing; drink plenty of water; spend more time in air conditioned places; if outside, seek shade frequently.
KHTX radar will be down for up to 2 weeks for the installation of important upgrades. As always, radar coverage is available from adjacent radar sites: OHX, GWX, FFC or BMX.
This graphic contains daily climate data (climate normals and records) for today for the sites listed. The legend is in the lower left portion of the image. The current "normals" period is 1981-2010. The date for each location represents the year in which the first observations began. However, some weather elements were recorded and/or retained before others at some sites. For example, at Huntsville, precipitation records begin in 1894, but official temperature records start in 1907. Following is a list containing the starting year that continuous weather records began at each site. Location: Year Temperature Records Began/Year Precipitation Records Began... Huntsville:1907/1894... Muscle Shoals:1893/1893... Cullman:1907/1907... Fayetteville:1957/1935... Guntersville:1910/1904... Russellville:1953/1953... Scottsboro:1891/1891...
