Dangerous heat will impact much of the Tennessee Valley again Saturday, due to the very hot and humid air mass in place. Daytime highs will be in the lower to mid 90s at many locations, especially in northwestern and north central Alabama and in parts of southern middle Tennessee. These temperatures, combined with the humidity will produce dangerously high heat indices in the 105 to 109 degree range. A Heat Advisory has been issued from 12 to 7 PM today for these locations. Caution is advised when conducting outdoor activities, especially during the peak heating of the day. Stay hydrated and take plenty of breaks.
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. Take action and be prepared!
Low temperatures tonight will be in the middle 70s, with patchy early morning fog possible. An isolated storm is possible before 9PM.
Rain chances increase through the weekend with temperatures starting to "cool" through mid-week then rising again towards the end of the week.
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...
