Hot, Humid Conditions + Possible Severe Thunderstorms in Alabama
Hot and humid conditions will remain in the outlook for our Townsquare Media coverage area. Highs will range between 94 and 97 degrees and the “feels like” temperature will be higher.
Tuesday High Temps for Townsquare Media Coverage Counties
James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that sunshine will be “filtered by smoke from Canadian wildfires in the higher levels of the atmosphere, and the usual summer particulates near the surface.”
Possibility Impacted Areas
In addition, we are monitoring the potential for thunderstorms to reach our area later this evening. Currently, the Storm Prediction Center has “Marginal Risk” which is level 1 out of 5 for the possibility of severe thunderstorms. This includes a few counties in the Townsquare Media coverage area.
Threats and Timing
“High-resolution model data suggests an MCS (Mesoscale Convective System) could creep into North Alabama early tonight,” said Spann.
Spann also mentioned that “it is a safe bet the storms reach areas north of the Tennessee River this evening, but they will fade quickly later tonight, and I would suggest there is just an outside risk of them reaching areas as far south as I-20. The main concern with the heavier storms is strong winds.”
