Are You Traveling?

If you have any summer travel plans, check ahead because the heat dome is expanding through the Southwest, Midwest, and Northeast.


This week will be no different, as the “combination of high temperatures in the 90s along with high humidity values will produce heat indices close to 105 degrees each day during the early to mid-afternoon hours from Thursday through Sunday,” said the National Weather Service in Birmingham.

Remember the heat index is your “feels like” gauge. It is a measurement guide that takes into account heat and humidity.


Hot and Humid Conditions in Alabama

James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that an “upper ridge will build across the Deep South this week, setting the state for a hot and mostly dry forecast through the weekend. It is a simply forecast... mostly sunny days and fair nights with highs in the 90s and lows in the 70s."

Record Breaking Temps

The heat wave has even broken temperature records. According to The Weather Channel, “So far this month we've seen all-time record highs tied in Reno, Nevada (108 degrees), and Grand Junction, Colorado (107 degrees).”
