UPDATE. For 12Z Aviation.

SHORT TERM. /Updated at 0326 AM CDT Thu Jul 29 2021/

Through Friday.

Oppressive heat continues to build over the area. Look for highs in the mid to upper 90s with plenty of sun and well above normal heat indices. A few areas may even break the century mark today with air temperatures alone. Not expecting any major relief in the way of showers/storms today, with only 20 percent in the far south. Another hot day on Friday with temperatures in the upper 90s to near 100 degrees. We could potentially see a round of showers/storms in the north during the afternoon/early evening and will need to monitor the model trends on this. At this point no changes to the ongoing heat advisory through Friday.

LONG TERM. /Updated at 0326 AM CDT Thu Jul 29 2021/

Friday night through Wednesday.

The upper ridge across much of the Central US begins to slowly retrograde Friday night into Saturday as the upper trough dips into the Central Appalachians. Saturday will likely be another hot and humid day for Central AL as high temperatures reach the mid to upper 90s. Heat indices are expected to be in the 105+ realm, so precautions should be taken if you have outdoor plans. As we go into next week, the pattern begins to shift slightly with the upper trough pushing further south and west. This will force a cold front southward through the TN Valley into Central AL on Sunday. Given the warm/moist airmass in place, along with the forcing of the cold front, we will likely see numerous to widespread showers and thunderstorms. The frontal boundary begins to slow and eventually stalls across the region Monday through Tuesday, leading to more rain and thunderstorms for both days. Due to the expected rainfall and cloud cover, afternoon high temperatures will run several degrees below normal for the first half of next week. The upper trough axis swings through on Wednesday and should start to push the frontal boundary southward, giving the best chance for precip generally along and south of I-85 with drier weather across the northernmost counties.

AVIATION. 12Z TAF Discussion.

Some patchy morning fog to give way to generally sunny skies. A touch more clouds in MGM and TOI by the afternoon. There could even be a stray shower/storm at TOI and MGM chances remain to low to mention.

FIRE WEATHER.

A warm and moist airmass will persist across Central Alabama through the weekend. A strong upper ridge will build over the area and suppress rain chances. The upper ridge will also result in light surface and transport winds. Better rain chances return Sunday and Monday as our next system pushes in from the north. Highs Thursday through Saturday will be in the middle to upper 90s with heat indices at or above 105 degrees.
