Typical summer weather takes over this week

Temperatures will slip back into the upper 60s and lower 70s by Tuesday morning, leading us into a very pleasant start to the day.

Most of Tuesday will be quite pleasant; high temperatures will rise into the lower 90s under partly cloudy skies. It won’t be oppressively humid on Tuesday, but we will still have just enough moisture for an isolated downpour to be possible during the afternoon and evening.

The rest of the week features almost the exact kind of weather we expect for Tuesday!

Typical Summer Weather Takes Over: The stormy set-up of last week came as the jet stream dropped far enough south for disturbances along the jet stream to impact Alabama. This week the jet stream will return northward, where it’s most often found through the summertime. That leaves us with very seasonable weather for the rest of the week.

‘Normal’ weather would put morning lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s and afternoon highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s. That’s exactly what we get this week!

It’s also very normal for us to get some pop-up storms each afternoon during the summer, and we’ll see those too. Summer time storms are hit-or-miss in nature, so a few communities each day will get a quick soaking in the middle of the day while everyone else stays totally dry.

The heat AND the storms will make the morning the best time to get any outdoor work done. If you are outside through the hottest part of the day (2PM-6PM) just be sure to stay hydrated, take breaks from the heat, and check on your pets too.
