A large ridge, or upper level high pressure system, has already set up bringing the summertime weather with it. Patterns like this are tough to shake, which is why our weather has been so similar day-to-day over the last month and why it will continue to be that way for some time still.
While this kind of heat is pretty typical for an Alabama summer, it's still nothing to shrug off; heat is the number one cause of weather-related fatalities in the US. Heat safety can be pretty simple for you and your family though.
Look out for any signs of nausea, dizziness, and pale skin in yourself and those around you as these can all be signs of heat exhaustion.
