Alabama Skies: Heat rising as we continue watching the Atlantic

Published 10:55 pm Saturday, July 15, 2023

Rain chances flip regions Sunday as northern Alabama stays mostly dry and southern Alabama has widespread storms.

We’ll all be hot with heat indexes in the triple digits. Unfortunately, Sunday is the “coolest” day of the week as our temperatures prepare to climb even higher. Get ready to crank up the air conditioners and have a little extra water in the fridge.

We’re still watching Subtropical Storm Don. The National Hurricane Center expects Don to weaken into a depression later Sunday, circle a few days, and strengthen back to a storm around Wednesday night. We’ll know more about its path later in the week.

North Alabama

Sunny with a high of 93. Partly cloudy Sunday night with a low of 70.

Central Alabama

Sunny with a high of 95. Mostly cloudy overnight with a low of 71.

South Alabama

Mostly cloudy early, becoming sunny. A chance of a few showers and storms in the morning. Mostly cloudy Sunday night with a low of 71.

Gulf Coast

Showers and storms, especially in the afternoon. High near 93. A few more scattered showers Sunday night with a low of 74.
